Dermal Fillers in Annapolis, MD
Dermal fillers are a fast and effective way to reduce the effects of facial aging without surgery. Over time, the skin on our faces loses resilience and starts to develop wrinkles and creases. The underlying fat tissue can start to thin, too. Dermal fillers have an astonishing ability to soften and smooth facial lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume, especially to the cheeks, chin, and lips. They can even fill in acne scars. The subtle, natural-looking changes dermal fillers create help you recapture youthful facial structure and reduce lines – all with no surgery and no downtime for recovery.
If your goal is to restore a younger look by erasing lines and wrinkles or reshaping areas of your face that have lost volume, Dr. Henry Sandel and Dr. Claire Duggal are experts in the aesthetic application of dermal fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that can restore a younger look when injected below facial skin. Different types of fillers can create various rejuvenating effects. Some soften and smooth lines and wrinkles, while others add volume to hollow areas or plump the lips for an enticing pout. Most fillers’ formulas include substances that occur naturally in the body, including hyaluronic acid and poly-L-lactic acid. All are FDA-approved for cosmetic use. We can even use your fat tissue to create a long-lasting filler by harvesting fat cells using liposuction from a part of your body, processing them, and injecting them where you want to add more volume.

At Sandel Duggal Plastic Surgery, we offer a full line of facial filler options. Each type of filler works best for specific facial improvements, and we may recommend using different fillers in various parts of your face.
Juvéderm® is a smooth gel dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound found in skin and connective tissue. Juvéderm® works by adding immediate volume and rehydrating the skin. It also stimulates collagen production. Different formulations of Juvéderm® serve for different purposes: to smooth away wrinkles, especially the fine lines around the mouth, and to add fullness to the lips and cheeks. A single Juvéderm® treatment can last for six to 18 months.
Dermal Filler FAQs
Dermal filler treatment takes between 20 minutes and an hour, depending on how many areas of the face you are having treated.
You’ll have little or no downtime after a dermal filler treatment and should be able to resume your normal activities right away. Some patients experience mild bruising, swelling, or redness for a few days afterward. If this is the case for you, minimize these effects by applying ice packs.
Results last anywhere from a few months to two years — or longer for fat grafting. See the description of the different types of filler treatment for information about how long each typically lasts.
