A Budget Guide to Collagen Stimulators and Dermal Fillers in Singapore

Budgeting towards your beauty goals shouldn’t be vexing. But, we know that everyone has different budgets, so here's a handy guide that could help you lose the wrinkles without losing your savings. Let’s face it (pun absolutely intended). Cost is always a factor when making ‘luxury’ purchases. And although we know this is probably one of the top questions on your mind – when seeking out a beauty treatment – the real question to ask is: how much does it mean to you, to be able to retain your natural glow and beauty? We’re not suggesting that you throw your entire savings into it, but one important thing to remember, is that collagen-stimulators and HA dermal filler treatments don’t have to happen all at once.

What are collagen stimulators and HA dermal fillers and are they cost effective?

As the name suggests, collagen-stimulators are fillers that uses ingredients to stimulate your body’s natural collagen to sculpt your face and improve the skin qualities. It contains safe, synthetically produced compounds (namely Polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres) that are injected into the skin to achieve long-lasting results.

HA dermal fillers on the other hand, contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance in our skin, that plays a major role in keeping the skin hydrated and volumised.

Both treatments are non-invasive and the effects can last between 6 months up to 2 years. Basically, you can choose a dosage that lasts for a shorter period of time or for a longer period of time, making it cost effective. It's up to you how much you feel comfortable with having injected at once and ultimately, how much you’re comfortable paying per session. This is something an expert physician would be able to help you with, by putting together an ‘injectables journey’ plan to cater to your beauty goals and financial needs.

Although we strongly believe in good quality skincare – seeing that the skin is the largest organ and requires a lot of love as we get older – we also believe that you shouldn’t be stressed out about the costs throughout the process.

What else should I consider if I’m thinking of getting a collagen-stimulator or dermal filler treatment?

The level of expertise the physician possesses is a crucial factor to consider when looking for high-quality services and achieving the results you want.

The best way to go about finding the right physician is by scheduling a consultation to ask all the important questions including the costs of the treatment.

The physician will be able to cover these other questions too:

  • Am I suitable for a collagen-stimulators and/or dermal filler treatment?
  • How often should I have a treatment done?
  • How should I prepare for the procedure?
  • How long should I wait before the following treatment?

You’ll certainly be able to budget towards your beauty goal better once you have the exact answers to these questions. And don’t be shy to let the physician know about your financial constraints, to help you set the appointment dates and budget according to your pay date and savings towards it.

Most physicians are willing to discuss possible treatment schedules to help spread out your injections in an affordable manner.


Bottom line is, budgeting for a fresh face doesn’t need to break your bank. If you have a tight budget, you can begin your anti-aging journey with good-quality skincare products, that may be recommended by the physician.

However, if you are ready to take the next step on your skincare journey, don’t let the cost be a put off, rather treat it as an investment towards yourself and come up with a plan to make it a possibility. It’s all about getting started and scheduling treatments in a way that doesn’t leave you short. We understand that your Starbucks Latte is sometimes too much to give up!
