How Much Filler Do You Need? A Guide to Decade Dosing

As we age, our skin naturally loses volume and elasticity, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical solution to restore a youthful appearance. But how much filler do you actually need? At Simply You Med Spa, we offer top-quality Juvederm and Galderma fillers to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Let’s dive into the concept of "decade dosing" to understand how much filler is ideal for you.

What is Decade Dosing?

Decade dosing is a guideline that helps determine the amount of filler you might need based on your age. It suggests that starting in your 30s, you may need one syringe of filler per decade of life to replace volume loss. This approach ensures that the treatment is personalized and sufficient to address the volume loss typically associated with each decade. As we age, we lose fat and bone mass, contributing to the need for fillers to restore the lost volume and maintain a youthful appearance.

Here’s a closer look:

In Your 20s

  • Volume Needed: Typically 1-2 syringes

  • Common Areas: Lips, nasolabial folds, and minor cheek enhancements.

  • Goal: Enhance natural features and improve areas of concern.

In Your 30s

  • Volume Needed: Typically 3 syringes

  • Common Areas: Cheeks, nasolabial folds, and early signs of under-eye hollowing.

  • Goal: Replace volume loss and maintain skin elasticity.

In Your 40s

  • Volume Needed: Typically 4 syringes

  • Common Areas: Cheeks, chin, under-eye areas, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lips.

  • Goal: Address more noticeable volume loss and deeper wrinkles.

In Your 50s and Beyond

  • Volume Needed: Typically 5+ syringes

  • Common Areas: Cheeks, chin, under-eye areas, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips, and jowls.

  • Goal: Restore significant volume loss, lift sagging skin, and smooth out deep wrinkles.
