Silikon 1000 Cost
Silikon 1000 is injected into lips, cheek hollows, wrinkles, acne scars, and deflated eye pads in very small amounts, usually called "microdroplets." Using this method, a doctor injects no more than 0.01 cc of medical grade silicone oil (that's one tenth of a teaspoon) under the skin through tiny punctures. These controlled injections allow the Silikon 1000 to be deposited in a series of small, non-overlapping spaces, isolating each droplet. The injections are spaced 0.5 cm apart.
This technique also helps to prevent accidental overfilling and, in many medical practices, to control the cost of treatment. Although some physicians charge a flat fee of $400 to $750 for Silikon 1000 injections, others charge a higher price when more microdroplets are needed. The amount needed to treat most small scars ranges at $350 to $750. Deeper wrinkles and lip augmentation typically cost $800 to $1,500.
Keep in mind that because the cosmetic use of Silikon 1000 is off-label, pricing will vary more widely than with other injectables.
Several treatments of Silikon 1000, spread over three to nine months, will be required to avoid adding too much bulk beneath the skin at one time. No more than 0.5 cc (or 1.0 cc total when addressing the top and bottom lip or the left and right nasolabial fold) should be injected during one sitting.
How to get Silikon 1000: Before approving of a Silikon 1000 treatment, know that silicone oil has invaded the black market of cosmetic goods. You won't be hard pressed to find them in salons, spas, and other non-medical settings. These venues don't guarantee quality control, sterility, or for that matter, proper training or experience by the injector. Silikon 1000 should be administered in a medical office by a licensed physician. Look for a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
