Dermal Fillers and Injections in Beverly Hills


Nonsurgical rejuvenation with dermal fillers and injections offers beautiful, natural-looking results without the downtime of surgical procedures. When it comes to facial fillers and injections, the first step is finding a surgeon whose artistry you trust, because you are paying for their expert analysis, judgement, and skill, not just the products or syringes. The fillers are simply tools, and how they are used is what determines your results. In our office, Dr. Patel personally does all injections.

Fillers in Beverly Hills are a gel-like substance injected to improve the appearance of the treated area. They come in a variety of different formulations, each designed to achieve specific goals. Choosing the right filler for the right purpose is critical to achieving successful results. For example, the same filler used to fill fine lines would be useless if used to lift a cheek, and vice versa.


First, you will meet with Dr. Anita to share your concerns and discuss the results that you hope to achieve. This will be followed by a facial analysis. Dr. Anita will then go over the risks and activity restrictions, and give you time to ask questions.

Prior to the treatment, you will fill out consent forms and have topical numbing cream applied to the treatment areas. Laughing gas may also be offered. The skin will be cleansed, cooled with gel ice packs, and prepped for injection.

Dr. Anita will then use a series of injections in precise amounts and targeted locations, specific to your anatomy, to achieve treatment goals. Pre- and post- treatment photos are taken to highlight results.


1-2 hours depending on number of areas treated.



Topical numbing and/or laughing gas (dental blocks also available)


There is typically no downtime following filler injections, however, patients may experience some bruising or swelling. This generally lasts a couple of days.


In general, patients are advised to avoid anything that puts pressure or stretch on treated areas for 48-72 hours. Patients should not exercise, use steam rooms or saunas, or sleep directly on the injected areas for at least 48 hours. Patients should also avoid getting dental work, massages, or facials for a few days.

Financing Available

Payments for nonsurgical treatments are made prior to or on the date of service, and payments for surgery are required to be paid in full 3 weeks prior to the surgical date.

We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, cash, and cashier checks. We also work with two third-party financing companies, Care Credit and Alphaeon Credit. You can find more information and apply for credit online using the links below.




During your consultation, Dr. Anita will take time to learn about your concerns and aesthetic goals, create a custom treatment plan, and discuss the treatment in detail. She will go through your medical history and make sure you are a good candidate for treatment.


Topical numbing cream is applied. After allowing time for it to take effect, the treatment area is cleansed, iced, and prepped for injection. The injections then begin, and progress from area to area, until completed. If laughing gas is desired, this is taken just before injections begin, and as needed during treatment. Pre- and post- treatment photos are taken. Your comfort, safety, and results are our priority, so if at any time you would like to pause, or see the results, please inform us.


Post-injection instructions and precautions are provided, and a 2-week followup visit is scheduled for overall assessment and touch-up if advised.

Frequently Asked Questions


Dermal fillers are available in a wide variety, and refer to a gel-like substance that is injected into or under the skin at varying depths, to accomplish specific goals from adding volume and definition, to smoothing out wrinkles.


Facial fillers are dermal fillers that are injected into the face, at varying locations and depths depending on the product used and aesthetic goals. Facial fillers and dermal fillers are two terms used interchangeably.


The most commonly used dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance in our tissues. Thus the product itself is safe and well tolerated. The main risks are related to the injection itself, rather than the filler product.


Depending on the filler chosen, and the location injected, fillers can generally last anywhere from six months to two years. The more product that is used, the longer the effect is seen, however the early result can be overdone looking, and thus Dr. Patel does not recommend this approach.

Often the most beautiful and natural results follow a less is more approach. This does not mean invisible results, just that the filler is carefully and artfully placed, to create believable and beautiful contours.

The above-mentioned fillers in Beverly Hills are all temporary, and that is a good thing. The face ages and if the filler stays stationary, the effect could be disastrous.


Fillers can help smooth out wrinkles by filling them in or adding support to the area (not to be confused with Botox or other toxins, which inhibit muscle contraction that causes wrinkles)


Hyaluronic acid based fillers are generally regarded as the best overall type of facial filler. However, there is not a single product specifically that can be called the best facial filler, because each product has unique properties that make it best suited for certain parts of the face and for certain indications. For instance, the best filler to augment the chin would not be the best filler to smooth out tear troughs.


Of the temporary fillers, Restylane Lyft and Voluma typically last the longest, with results lasting up to 2 years.


The total cost depends on which product and which areas are treated. The cost of fillers starts at $550 and up.

What are Dermal Fillers Made Of?

The majority of today’s popular fillers consist of hyaluronic acid (HA) as the main ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the tissues, and helps bind moisture, keeping the skin looking plump and hydrated. Examples of HA fillers include the Juvederm family of fillers (Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Voluma, Volbella, Vollure), the Restylane family of fillers (Restylane L, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Kysse), the Revance family of fillers (RHA2, RHA3, RHA4), and Belotero. Other fillers have different main ingredients, and examples are Sculptra, which is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), and Radiesse, which is calcium hydroxyapatite.

What Does Treatment Look Like?

First, you will meet with Dr. Anita Patel to share your concerns and discuss the results that you hope to achieve. This will be followed by a facial analysis. Dr. Patel will then go over the risks and activity restrictions, and give you time to ask questions.

Prior to the injection treatment in Beverly Hills, you will fill out consent forms and have topical numbing cream applied to the treatment areas. Laughing gas may also be offered. The skin will be cleansed, cooled with gel ice packs, and prepped for injection.

Dr. Patel will then use a series of injections in precise amounts and targeted locations, specific to your anatomy, to achieve treatment goals. Pre- and post- treatment photos are taken to highlight results.

Are There Risks Associated with Fillers?

Certain things are natural side effects, rather than risks, and those include temporary swelling at the site, possible bruising, and possible lumps during the healing phase.

Actual risks are the chance of a lump that does not go away once the swelling goes down. Even so, these can be massaged out by the doctor, or if need be injected with an enzyme to soften or get rid of the lump. Other risks include asymmetry, vascular compromise that can lead to skin discoloration, skin loss, or vision loss. Skin loss and vision loss are the two worst possible risks, and while the percentage of patients experiencing these are very small, they are still possible.

" I had my lap band surgery three years ago now I was ready for my tummy tuck. But from the horror stories I heard I kept putting it off. I went to see two other doctors and wasn't happy, until I met Dr. Patel and her amazing staff. The first day I met them I knew I wanted her to be the one to do my surgery for me. Everyone was fantastic from Dr. Patel's staff to the after care. "

They took time discussing the procedures and options and put my mind at ease. I had a Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift with Implants. The surgery day went great and I am so happy with the results. I would recommend her to my family and friends and will use her for any future cosmetic surgeries I may have. Thank you Dr. Patel!! "
