Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that restore plumpness and volume to aging skin. At Marin Skin, the team uses the popular, proven RHA® for a wide variety of youth-enhancing purposes.
RHA® is a smooth gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a compound produced by your skin when you’re younger. Hyaluronic acid makes your skin look full, resilient, and hydrated.
As you age, your production of hyaluronic acid greatly decreases. With RHA® injections, it can be restored – and so can youthful contours.
What aging concerns can dermal fillers address?
Dermal fillers reverse the appearance of aging by:
- Filling in hollow cheeks
- Plumping thinning lips
- Smoothing out mild scars
- Erasing lip lines
- Smoothing nasolabial folds, the smile lines extending from your nose to your lip borders
- Smoothing marionette lines, the lines from your lip borders to your chin
When you come in for a dermal filler consultation, the team at Marin Skin works with you to understand your beauty concerns and aesthetic goals. Then they recommend the best course of dermal filler treatment for you.
What happens during dermal filler treatments?
A dermal filler session is relatively quick, so you can even schedule it during your lunch hour.
The injections are always given by a board-certified dermatologist who follows your personalized treatment plan to place the fillers in just the right areas to smooth out lines and wrinkles and fill in hollowed areas.
RHA® injections contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort, but you’ll notice a slight pinch with each injection.
The results of your dermal fillers are noticeable almost immediately, and the effects soften over the course of several days. Expect dermal fillers to lift your look for 6-18 months, depending on the area treated, the exact formula used, and your personal metabolism.
You may have slight swelling or bruising at the injection sites, we do not recommend scheduling immediately prior to an event.
If you’re ready to turn back the clock and restore a youthful look to your face, call Marin Skin to set up a dermal filler consultation. Alternatively, you can book an appointment online for a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Knott.
