Thinking about getting dermal fillers but confused about the quantity you might need? 0.5ml filler? 1ml filler? 2ml filler? What does it actually mean? And how much will give you the results you want? Whilst the exact amount injected will be different for each person, here’s how much filler is usually needed to treat each area of the face.

How much filler do I need?
0.5ml of filler or 3ml of filler? How much will you need? Well, the quantity used depends on a few different factors. These include:
How deep your wrinkles are
How much volume your face has lost
Your face shape and features
The type of filler treatment you want - for example, a liquid nose job, cheek filler, lip filler, or tear trough filler. It's worth bearing in mind too that different fillers are used for different facial filler treatments - and the viscosity of these varies.
What's the average amount of filler needed for each part of the face?
