How Much Dermal Filler Is Needed For Natural-Looking Results?

Less is more – the idea that a minimalist approach is often the most aesthetically pleasing. When it comes to Dermal Fillers, sometimes this is also the case. Our team of expert practitioners use small quantities of Dermal Fillers to create natural-looking results. But just how much Dermal Filler should you expect to receive in each area? 


What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are a cosmetic injectable used to restore lost volume and enhance facial features, creating a more youthful or harmonious appearance. Most Filler solutions are made from hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally-occurring substance found in the body, particularly in the skin, connective tissues and eyes. It plays a vital role in retaining moisture, hydrating tissue and providing elasticity to the skin. 


When injected into the skin, HA Fillers serve two purposes: volume and hydration. With age, your HA and collagen levels begin to deplete. The viscosity of Dermal Fillers reshapes sunken features with immediate effect with natural-looking results improving over time as the injections stimulate collagen synthesis. By attracting and retaining water, HA molecules provide deep hydration to the treated areas. This not only plumps the skin but improves the overall texture of your complexion.  


How Much Dermal Filler Will I Need?

Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer. The amount of Filler you require will rely on several factors: the severity of your wrinkles, the extent of your volume loss, the area being treated, and your unique face shape. Below are approximate quantities for each treatment area but, after attending your consultation at The Lovely Clinic, we may recommend a larger or smaller amount in order to achieve natural-looking results. Each syringe contains 1 millilitre of Dermal Filler. 

Cheeks – Whether you’re looking to create higher cheekbones or reimagine a flattened midface due to age-related volume loss, we typically use 1-3 ml of Filler per cheek.

Lips – Lip Filler can subtly plump your pout and correct asymmetry with completely natural-looking results. We generally achieve this using 0.5 – 1 ml but, if you’re looking for something a little more pronounced, your practitioner will create a bespoke treatment plan for your lips. 

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty – Dubbed ‘Liquid Nose Jobs’, Dermal Filler can be used to straighten hooks, balance bridges and lift the tip of the nose with as little as one syringe. That said, the quantity of Filler you require depends on the changes you want to make.

Tear Troughs – The delicate eye area doesn’t normally require any more than 0.5 – 1 ml to banish dark circles and create a fresh-faced appearance. 

Nasolabial Folds – Approximately 0.5 – 2 ml is used to soften the lines that run from the nose to the mouth, which become more pronounced in your thirties or forties. 

Marionette Lines – The lines etched from the corners of your mouth to your chin develop as your skin begins to sag. 0.5 – 1 ml per side softens the appearance of marionette lines. 

Temples – The unsung hero of facial rejuvenation, Temple Filler restores lost volume and discreetly invigorates the skin for a more youthful appearance. 0.5 – 3 ml of solution is used for each side of the face, creating natural-looking results. 

Jawline & Chin – Depending on whether you’re aiming to achieve a more heart-shaped face, a sharper jawline, or realign a set-back chin, 1 – 4 ml may be used.
