Budgeting for a Fresh Face

Where to begin your Fresh Face journey?

Budgeting for a fresh and healthy face shouldn’t be a daunting task. At Dr Face, we know that patients have different budgeting strategies, so our doctors are happy to help you develop a treatment program that suits you.

An important thing to remember is that skincare and cosmetic treatments don’t have to happen all at once. If we learned one thing from the tortoise and the hare, it’s that a little bit over a longer time will still get you to the same place. We can’t let the cost put us off developing a healthy and affordable skincare routine!

It is all about getting started and scheduling treatments in a way that doesn’t leave you short. We know that your morning cup of coffee is sometimes too much to give up!

Before injections

Though our doctors can help you determine a plan for your injectables journey, sometimes we need to be a little realistic. We understand that sometimes, setting aside money for skincare just is not possible. Sometimes tyres pop, we get caught having not touched on our Myki cards, or more unfortunate circumstances can mean that skincare has to take a back seat.

We strongly believe in good quality skincare; our skin is the largest organ and requires a lot of love as we get older. However, we also believe that no one should sacrifice things that they love or need to achieve their goals.

Therefore, if your budget is quite tight, it is best to begin your anti-ageing journey with some good-quality skincare products. There are hundreds of products which combat signs of ageing, and these are good compromises if injectables are a out of your budget.

However, if you are ready to take the next step on your skincare journey, keep reading to see the kinds of strategies you might want to employ!


Budgeting for anti-wrinkle injections

On average, our clients see us to have anti-wrinkle injections every three months, spending roughly $360 per visit. This means that they’re spending $1,440 on anti-wrinkle injections per year on a fresher, more radiant face.

Even if this annual figure seems a bit daunting, when broken down, it is only $120 per month. Again, this is only an average. If your monthly budget for skincare is a little less, our doctors will develop an injection plan to spread out treatment over a longer period of time. If your budget allows for a little more, you could condense your injections into every four months, perhaps! Either way, you will achieve the same goal, jut in a way that balances well with your schedule.

Anti-wrinkle injections are the kind of treatment which can be spread out over a longer period of time, and so they can be a little easier to budget for than fillers or other skincare treatments. Furthermore, anti-wrinkle injections are often a bit more affordable than fillers or total facial rejuvenation. If you are just getting started on your skincare journey, anti-wrinkle injections can be a good place to start.


Time for filler?

The best thing about fillers is that they last quite a while – on average, 12-18 months. This means that we usually only see our filler patients once a year, with a total cost of roughly $1,350 (usually two syringes of filler). This means saving $112 a month – not too scary, right?

With one syringe you can add lost volume to your cheeks, or even contour your jawline. Add another syringe, and you can make your lips a little fuller, lengthen the chin slightly, or soften those frown lines that might be getting on your nerves.

At Dr Face, we aren’t interested in removing all wrinkles, because they are a natural and beautiful part of ageing. Instead, we want you to look natural, but fresh. This means a little bit of filler can go a long way which makes budgeting for your fresh face a little easier!


Your Fresh Face at the end of the day

At the end of the day, injectables aren’t for everyone. However, if you can put a little bit aside each month, you’re on your way to a well-budgeted year of injectables!
Budgeting for a fresh face doesn’t need to break your bank, and it certainly shouldn’t force you to give up what you love. Our doctors are happy to discuss possible treatment schedules to help spread out your injections in an affordable manner.
