Restylane®, Juvederm®, and More Are Ideal for Lip Injections, Smoothing Wrinkles, and Other Treatments in Denver

One of the primary reasons women and men alike begin to show signs of aging is loss of the skin’s structural support (especially collagen). Denver’s AboutSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics team regularly provides consultations with patients who want to address any of a number of facial changes, including volume loss and the development of nasolabial folds and similar creases, thin lips, and facial hollows. All of these cosmetic issues can be attributed to collagen loss and changes in the structural support of the skin. Fortunately, they can also all be minimized and addressed with dermal fillers, which can restore volume in areas of the face, hands and chest.

What Does Collagen Do?

Collagen is a structural protein found throughout the human body. Its main role is to provide flexible structure and support—especially for the skin.

In the skin, collagen not only works as an internal scaffold that keeps tissues elevated in youthful positions, but it also creates space for “storing” other structural components of the skin, such as hyaluronic acid (HA). HA sugar molecules can hold up to 1,000 times their own weight in water, making them critically important for hydration and supporting the skin.

Collagen molecules are not permanent. They actually break down due to both the passage of time and the effects of environmental exposure, such as sunlight.

The body tries to constantly replenish collagen molecules to maintain their presence in the skin, but this natural process begins to slow and taper off as a person ages. Eventually, the creation of new collagen can no longer keep pace with the destruction of old collagen. This causes collagen levels to drop, which leads to a loss of structure, flexibility, and moisture. Dermal fillers can help minimize the appearance of significant collagen loss.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

While many dermal fillers in the past contained actual collagen, the most commonly used options today have hyaluronic acid as their base. Facial injectables typically take the form of a clear gel, which adds volume in areas where collagen loss has caused hollowing, drooping, or folds.

By filling in these areas of collagen deficiency, the skin regains more youthful contours, prominences, roundness, and smoothness. While the effect of fillers is temporary, with the body gradually absorbing the hyaluronic acid, many fillers last for months or even a few years (often depending on the movement in the area of placement, as well as the agent actually injected).

Discover What Expert Injectors Can Do With Dermal Fillers in the Denver Area

The AboutSkin Dermatology team can accomplish a wide range of rejuvenating effects with dermal fillers. Denver-area women and men can alter their facial contours, proportions and shape by adding volume to their forehead, cheeks, lips, chin and jawline. Fillers can also address hollows under the eyes and at the temples, smooth creases and lines between the eyebrows and around the mouth, and reduce the appearance of veins and tendons so the backs of the hands appear younger.

What Dermal Fillers Are Available?

AboutSkin Dermatology carries numerous dermal fillers to be able to meet the unique cosmetic need of a diverse range of patients. Some fillers are better suited to specific areas, with benefits that make them ideal in certain cases. Options include:


Smooths moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.


Similar to Restylane with the addition of lidocaine for enhanced comfort during treatment.

Restylane Contour®

Provides cheek enhancement and contouring.

Restylane Lyft®

Increases volume in cheeks, midface and back of hands, and smooths the décolleté area.

Restylane Silk®

Primarily used for etched lines and lip augmentation, this HA filler is great for imprinted lines (especially wrinkles around the mouth in patients who don’t yet want laser resurfacing).

Restylane Eyelight®

Specifically formulated for correcting under-eye hollows.

Restylane Kysse®

Boosts lip volume and color while smoothing upper lip lines.

Restylane Refyne®

The hyaluronic acid in this filler helps to soften nasolabial folds and marionette lines while maintaining flexibility and enhancing support of the muscular structures below the skin.

Addresses deep lines around the mouth and subtly lifts the eyebrows.

Juvederm® Ultra

Designed for lip enhancement and to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles, particularly around the mouth.

Juvederm® Ultra Plus

What to Expect at Your Dermal Filler Consultation

If you are interested in volume replacement with fillers, please consider scheduling a consultation. One of our Board-Certified Dermatology Physicians will meet personally with you to discuss your aesthetic goals, assess the signs of aging and treatment area, and determine which treatment (or combination of treatments) can work best.

Specific treatment details depend on the filler chosen and how much is used. Time, cost, and the expected scope and duration of results will also be discussed during your consultation.

Despite the many variables to take into account, dermal filler sessions all typically work the same way: Needles are used to introduce the chosen filler into the appropriate tissue, which takes a matter of minutes. The treated area will likely feel sensitive and may appear swollen or bruised for a short time after the injections. Obviously, not all folds and lines will resolve, but there should be a noticeable improvement seen in photos—depending on how much volume is used.

Are There More Options for Facial Rejuvenation?

While fillers are ideal for addressing collagen loss, other signs of aging require a different approach. Wrinkles that form due to muscle movement are one example. For this condition, dermatologists use injectables known as neuromodulators, which relax the muscles. Options include BOTOX® CosmeticDysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau. Fillers and neuromodulators can be combined (often leading to a more synergistic effect and even longer duration), as well as incorporated into more global treatment sessions for patients who want to address multiple issues at once.
