Add Volume to Reshape and Beautify Lips with Injectables in Denver
Like the rest of the skin on your face, your lips don’t stay the same as you age—and represent one of the areas where particularly noticeable changes can occur. A primary cause of this change is natural collagen loss,but UV damage, smoking, and inflammation also speed up the process. Shrinking fat pads in the lips further cause them to lose some of their roundness and projection.Lip fillers from Denver’s AboutSkin Dermatology and DermSurgery can give you plumper lips(restoring a more youthful fullness) and also help soften some lines in the skin (especially along with laser treatments).
Apart from aging, some people have smaller lips because of genetics. Lip fillers work well for these patients, too, by giving them volume they have been lacking for years and helping them to shape the lips they have always wanted. At AboutSkin, our six Board-Certified Dermatologists are all well-trained on performing lip filler injections,and they all have a keen eye as to achieving the “natural look.”
How Do Lip Fillers Work?
The Juvederm® and Restylane® collections both include injectable cosmetic dermatology treatments designed specifically for targeting the lips and the surrounding area. Much like fillers for other areas of the face, lip fillers work by volumizing the skin. The soft gels are injected below the surface and blend into the tissue, resulting in a very natural look and feel. Discomfort is minimized by the use of a topical anesthetic.
The lip fillers used at AboutSkin Dermatology are made with hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in the skin and used to maintain hydration by pulling in water from the surrounding atmosphere and from the deeper layers of skin to the surface.
The lip filler gels replace the volume that has been lost when collagen and moisture diminish in the lips as you age. Lip fillers are typically softer and lighter compared to the fillers used for volumizing cheeks and softening deep wrinkles. Restylane Kysse® is an option created specifically for lips, while Silk® is a thinner filler used for subtle lip augmentation and reducing wrinkles around the lips. Juvederm® Ultra and Ultra Plus add more noticeable volume.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Lip Fillers?
Anyone who wants to add volume and alsomaintains a positive outlook and realistic goals for what can be achieved with cosmetic procedures like lip fillers.During your consultation, our Board-Certified Dermatologists at AboutSkin Dermatology discuss your medical history and skin health with you to determine the right treatments for you—including lip fillers and/or laser treatment sessions.
What Can You Expect from Lip Filler Recovery and Results?
There is very little downtime associated with lip fillers. The treatment takes just a few minutes to be completed, and patients can return to most of their usual activities afterward. Common side effects include mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising. Patients who have had lip fillers should avoid heavy exercise for the first couple of days, and avoid heated environments like saunas and steam rooms for the first two days as well (since the high temperatures can intensify anypost-injection swelling).
Why Choose AboutSkin Dermatology for Lip Fillers?
Selecting a skilled and experienced injector is one of the most important steps you can take when having lip fillers, as it helps to ensure that the procedure is as safe as possible and that you get satisfying results. Board-Certified and Fellowship-Trained Dermatologist Dr. Joel Cohen teaches courses every month on fillers (and lasers) and lectured as faculty for the launch of Restylane®Kysse and Restylane® Contour. He has participated in clinical trials for Restylane® and other lip fillers like Juvéderm® and has co-authored an article ona validated lip fullness grading scale.
What Other Filler Options Are Available in Denver?
Aside from lip fillers, other types of dermal fillers can be used for addressing volume loss in other areas of the face, which can lead to wrinkles, depressions, and sagging. It’s common for the cheeks to become flatter or hollow as we age, causing the shape of the face to change. Juvederm Voluma® and Restylane Lyft®or Restylane® Contour are ideal for cheek augmentation.They add lift and volume to re-define the contours of the face.
Several types of fillers can be combined and tailored to address the unique concerns of each individual patient.

What our patients say about usBOOK NOW
Dr. Cohen is 'a derm's derm' -- his published research and opinions are sought after by other dermatologists obsessed with the latest innovations in cosmetic dermatology, including lasers, neuromodulators, and fillers. He's also trained many of these derms. Dr. Cohen is arguably one of the best in the U.S., though he's not flashy or self promoting --just intensely focused on achieving elegant, successful results. I stumbled into his practice quite by accident, and could not be happier. His PA Christina is also phenomenal.
I am so pleased with the high level of expertise and care I have received from Dr. Cohen, Dr. Ho and his medical assistants Cristina and Emily. From the Mohs surgery, to a multitude of lasers, to skin checks; the doctors have been extremely conscientious and strive to have a relationship with their patients. I am thrilled with the results of my cosmetic procedures and surgery. In addition, They are kind and very humble providers. It truly is an honor to be a patient of Dr. Cohen and to be a valued patient of his medical practice. Truly the best in the country.. and The World. Thank you Dr. Cohen and Dr. Ho and staff!
Have been a patient of Dr. Stoler for a long time. She knows me well and takes excellent care of my skin. Also gives good and appropriate advice!
Dr. Joel Cohen was highly recommended to me by several other dermatologists for his expertise in laser technology. I was not only impressed with the treatment I received from Dr. Cohen, but also his wonderful, highly skilled staff. The entire experience was top notch!
This is the BEST dermatology and cosmetic location you will ever find! Truthfully they give all the attention and care anyone could ask for. I’m always blown away at their kindness and their service.

Dr. Stoler is the best!
I have been a patient of About Skin Dermatology for over 12 years. Everyone that I have ever encountered at this practice has been knowledgeable and very kind. I see both Dr. Ho and Dr. Cohen. My skin has not looked this good in years. My whole family goes to this practice. I would highly recommend About Skin Dermatology.
Dr Fettig was great- took her time with me and answered my questions. She has a nice bedside manner and good sense of humor.
I used Dr. Cohen for a Mohs procedure. He is fellowship trained and extremely competent. Dr. Cohen remained involved in my follow up care with a plastic surgeon and was always readily accessible and available to address my concerns. Both he and the office staff are caring and committed to providing the highest level of professional service. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. I think it’s very nice.
