Lip fillers are possibly the most popular type of filler treatment, however, patients choose dermal fillers for a range of reasons, including as a cost-effective alternative to a facelift (or rhytidectomy) and non invasive treatment with minimal downtime. as they can achieve similar results for a relatively low cost.
If you’re considering having dermal filler treatments but first want to know how much you can expect it to cost, at our clinic in Melbourne, dermal filler treatments cost range between $490 and $850. There is however a range of factors that will influence the final cost of treatment; the amount of filler and the type of filler used will each affect the overall cost of the treatment.
Before undergoing any type of cosmetic treatment, it’s important you understand the associated costs.
As a relatively simple treatment that can be performed in-clinic, the fee structure when undergoing dermal filler treatment is straightforward: you can usually expect to pay an initial consultation fee and for the treatment itself.
Generally you will be charged a consultation fee when you attend the initial consultation with your physician. This amount is usually a standard fee and is disclosed to you at the time of booking. Should you proceed with the treatment on the day of the consultation, the consultation fee is waived.
When you decide to proceed with dermal filler treatment, you will be required to cover the cost of the procedure itself—this should include the cost of the filler and the fee for the physician performing the procedure.
Dermal fillers can be used for a wide range of purposes. They are most commonly used on the lips, cheeks, mouth lines and creases, smile and laugh lines, chin, jowls, brow, tear troughs, crows feet and forehead, however, they can also be used as a form of non-surgical nose augmentation or as hydrating skin boosters.
While the treatment area can affect the cost of treatment, the volume of filler required to perform the treatment is what usually determines the overall cost.

The type of dermal filler used will affect the cost of treatment. Factors including the treatment area, the likelihood of an allergic reaction and the how long you want the treatment to last will determine which type of dermal filler is most suitable.
As the effects of dermal fillers are only temporary, the amount of time the filler lasts before another treatment is required will impact the overall ongoing cost.
The treatment area will largely dictate the speed at which the filler dissolves. Fillers used on areas which involve a lot of movement (such as the lips) are likely to dissipate faster compared to other areas of the face. It is common for the results to last longer after several ongoing treatments.
We generally recommend an ongoing treatment plan to avoid dramatic or sudden changes to your appearance and to ensure you continuously look your best.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common type of dermal filler treatment. Made from a naturally occurring sugar found in the body that gives the skin moisture, volume and elasticity, hyaluronic acid fillers can last anywhere from several months to one or two years.
Autologous fillers use the patient’s own fat to produce the same result as other types of fillers, but are less likely to trigger an allergic reaction.
As the treatment involves two separate procedures (one to remove the fat from the body and another to inject it in the treatment area), autologous fillers are usually the most expensive type of filler treatment. This process can differ from patient-to-patient, so it can be difficult to predict how long the effects of the treatment will last.
