Sun exposure, stress, and normal wear and tear can cause undesirable skin changes over time. If you’re self-conscious about wrinkles or loss of volume in your face, dermal fillers might be the right treatment for you. They’re safe, effective, and long-lasting. Because dermal fillers are simply injected into the skin, there’s no downtime required.

Dermal Fillers Q & A
Are all dermal fillers the same?
They’re all injected under your skin to produce cosmetic results. They differ, though, in several ways:
- Some dermal fillers add volume and firmness while others work to reduce wrinkles.
- Most dermal fillers are approved for one specific use, i.e. your lips or your cheeks
- Each dermal filler contains different active ingredients and different formulations
Dr. Patel and his team will evaluate your skin to determine which fillers will produce the desired results.
How long do dermal fillers last?
The beautiful results you receive from dermal fillers can last as little as six months or as long as two years, depending on the formulation used and other factors. In addition to ensuring that you know how long your results will last, Dr. Patel and his team give you do-it-yourself tips to preserve your results.
Can I combine dermal fillers?
Yes! Depending on your concerns and treatment goals, it may be appropriate to use several different dermal fillers to achieve different goals in different parts of your face.
Who is qualified to inject dermal fillers?
It’s crucial that you receive dermal fillers from an experienced doctor or a certified aesthetician. These professionals have adequate training and experience to provide you with safe, effective treatment.
What happens to the dermal filler ingredients when my results diminish?
The ingredients are metabolized and eliminated by your body. The process is natural, poses no new risk to you, and ensures you can receive dermal fillers again to achieve the results you love.
Am I a good candidate for dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are safe for adult patients of all ages. However, certain conditions may require you to wait for treatment, such as a skin infection, open sores, or recent surgery in the treatment area.
Nevertheless, if you’re interested in smoothing wrinkles on your face, adding volume to your lips or cheeks, or improving firmness in your face, you’re likely a great candidate for dermal fillers.
