Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located at 3717 E. Thousand Oaks Boulevard in Westlake Village, CA 91362, just off US-101 Ventura Freeway at the Westlake Boulevard, exit in the center of the Paseo Marketplace Shopping Center.
DO YOU SERVE PATIENTS OUTSIDE OF WESTLAKE VILLAGE?
Yes. We not only have patients that travel from across the country for medical skincare procedures; we also offer treatments in the Los Angeles metropolitan area including Beverly Hills. For further location needs please contact us.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You can expect to see positive results right away. Donna will hand you a mirror while you are still sitting in the chair for you to examine the noticeable improvements in your appearance.
HOW LONG WILL THE POSITIVE EFFECTS LAST?
The positive results of medical skincare vary on a case-by-case basis. Generally speaking, you can enjoy the benefits of Botox for a period of 3-4 months. A dermal filler such as Radiesse can frequently last as long as one year or a year and a half because of its calcium base and ability to naturally stimulate further collagen growth.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Bedford Skincare Clinic’s competitive pricing depends on the individual needs of the patient and areas needing treatment. We charge for procedures by the units of product used rather than charging by the procedure area, a much more cost-effective method for our patients.
We suggest you use caution in seeking treatment from those who offer steep discounts on units of Botox or dermal fillers or “similar” products. Bedford Skincare Clinic uses only FDA-approved injectable products.
WHAT AGE RANGE IS RIGHT FOR BOTOX OR DERMAL FILLERS?
The age question with skincare is really more about how old you want to look rather than how old your birth certificate says you are. We have patients from their early twenties into their eighties come to us for Botox and fillers. The right age for fighting the effects of aging on your appearance is whatever age you are ready to take action.

During Your Visit
WHO WILL ACTUALLY DO MY PROCEDURES?
Donna Sollima, R.N., under the medical direction of Dr. Cambre, personally performs all procedures. Donna has more than three decades of medical skincare experience, including many years of working alongside the finest plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, CA. Donna also hand-selects every product for procedures and services she offers.
DOES IT HURT?
Most of our patients say, “No, not really,” or “it’s not bad,” and there are a few reasons why. We use a combination of a topical anesthetic and ice, a very effective method for minimizing any discomfort. Also, based on decades of experience and precision over thousands of procedures, Donna uses finer, smaller needles for procedures.
WHAT AREAS OF MY BODY DO YOU TREAT?
On a daily basis, we treat the forehead, eyes, lips, chin, cheeks, and nose, however, our procedures extend well beyond the face and forehead. Patients have received dermal fillers such as Radiesse in places like hands and elbows, and the Morpheus 8 can be used on multiple body segments during treatment.
HOW LONG WILL MY PROCEDURES TAKE?
Normally your procedures will take thirty minutes to an hour, however, the time required depends on your conditions and the outline of your treatment.
WILL I BRUISE AS A RESULT OF RECEIVING TREATMENT?
While bruising is a possibility any time you receive an injection, at Bedford we use AcuVein technology that reveals patients’ veins for injection, greatly reducing the probability. We also utilize ice compresses and very small, fine needles to administer injections.
Why people from all over the country come to Bedford Skincare Clinic is for the solutions. We’re focused on repairing and replenishing your skin and like many of our patients you’ll be amazed to see the beautiful, healthy results that defy the signs of aging. We aim to be a “No Wrinkle Zone” with expert medical skincare from facials and peels, dermal fillers, Botox and liquid facelifts.
After Your Visit
CAN I DRIVE FOLLOWING MY MEDICAL SKINCARE TREATMENTS?
Yes, you can drive yourself to and from your procedures. However, for safety reasons, we suggest keeping your eyes focused on the road and not on the rearview mirror checking out how great you look!
CAN I GO BACK TO WORK IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING MY PROCEDURES?
Yes, you can go back to work right after your procedures.
HOW SOON CAN I EXERCISE AFTER A PROCEDURE?
We recommend a waiting period of 24 to 48 hours before you do any kind of strenuous exercise following medical skincare treatments. Sleeping with your head slightly elevated can also help prevent swelling.
