FAQs: Dermal Fillers in Mill Valley, CA
How do I know which dermal filler is right for me?
There are nuances and specific benefits for each dermal filler, and we can help you discover your ideal treatment plan during your personal consultation. For example, if you are seeking subtle, natural-looking lip enhancement, you might be well-suited for Volbella, which features smaller molecules and a thinner gel that is specially formulated to rejuvenate the delicate mouth area. If you are seeking bolder augmentation, however, you might need a thicker gel like Juvéderm Ultra or Restylane. After careful consideration of your goals and facial structure, we will help you determine your optimal treatment for the most flattering, balanced rejuvenation.
What’s the difference between Juvéderm fillers, Belotero Balance, and Restylane fillers?
Every dermal filler on our menu is an HA-based filler, but they offer distinct benefits. Belotero Balance completely integrates into your skin to correct moderate to severe nasolabial folds and vertical lip lines. Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are formulated with a special XpresHAn Technology™ to help soften nasolabial folds or marionette lines while maintaining your natural facial movement. Restylane Lyft replenishes lost volume in the cheeks and hands. We can help you determine which fillers best suit your particular needs during your personal consultation.
How long does it take to see the results from dermal fillers in Marin County, CA?
One of the many benefits of dermal fillers is that they provide immediate, noticeable benefits. You’ll enjoy plumped up, revitalized skin with diminished lines and wrinkles only moments after your injectable session. Optimal benefits with all fillers can be enjoyed up to two weeks following your session, as it may take time for the filler to settle and any side effects to fully subside.
How long do the benefits of dermal fillers last?
Juvéderm Voluma is the longest lasting filler, providing up to 2 years of enhanced cheek volume. Most dermal fillers offer six to 12 months of rejuvenation, depending on the area treated and your unique response. We will help you understand the exact benefits of each filler you are considering during your consultation.
Do dermal fillers cause any side effects?
Every injection carries some risk of bruising, swelling, or pinpoint bleeding, but these side effects usually subside quickly on their own. To help reduce swelling, we will apply ice to your treatment areas following your session. We also recommend avoiding blood thinning-substances (NSAIDS like aspirin, and alcohol) up to a week before and after your dermal filler session to reduce your risk of bruising.
Will dermal fillers make me look overdone or fake?
The beauty of dermal fillers is that you have control over your results. Some clients do request noticeable rejuvenation, while others prefer more subtle benefits. Our injectors will work closely with you to accomplish your goals, taking into account your facial structure and skin type to determine the exact amount of product needed and its ideal placement for the most flattering results possible. Keep in mind that you will experience some swelling immediately following your dermal filler session. This is normal, and will subside in the day or two following treatment. It can take up to a week for your dermal filler to fully settle into your face, so be patient for your optimal results.
Do dermal fillers hurt?
Dermal filler injections are a well-tolerated treatment that take only minutes to administer in our office. To ensure your comfort, our HA-based fillers are formulated with the pain reliever lidocaine, which gently numbs skin during the injection process. You may experience a pinching or slight stinging sensation, depending on the areas being treated, but these sensations are well-tolerated and usually subside immediately following treatment.
