Purpose of the study:
The overall goal of this study is to better understand patient experience with injectable facial fillers so that the investigators may provide the best results for their patients. To do this, the investigators are administering surveys to approximately 50 patients who have been treated by Dr. Anthony P Sclafani, MD, FACS.
Participants will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire regarding their most recent treatment by Dr. Sclafani with a facial injectable filler. All responses will be analyzed anonymously.
Patients previously treated by the PI with dermal fillers will be mailed questionnaires about their experience with the treatment. These questionnaires will be deidentified prior to recording answers on a computer based spreadsheet.
