Find out more about the dermal fillers your Denver dermatologist offers.

Summer is just around the corner and thoughts may have turned to re-vamping your look. After all, spring does cause many to consider a host of different makeover options. If you want to reduce the look of your wrinkles, then it might be time to consider getting dermal fillers from your Denver dermatologist.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic treatments that help to improve the appearance of your skin by reducing common dermatological issues and giving your skin more fullness and volume.

What types of dermal fillers do you offer?

Your Denver dermatologist offers a variety of different dermal fillers to fit all of your aesthetic needs: Juvederm, Radiesse, Juvederm Voluma and Belotero.

What can dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers are a great way to increase volume and plump up skin that has lost elasticity and collagen due to age. Dermal fillers can also reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles including forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet.

Which dermal filler is right for me?

Which injectable filler you decide on will depend on what you are looking to achieve:


This injectable filer targets moderate to several facial wrinkles and folds, particularly around the nose and mouth. Unlike Botox, Juvederm products offer instant results.

Juvederm Voluma

This is a deeper volumizing filler than the standard Juvederm filler, which is softer and targets the folds and wrinkles of the mouth and lip area. Juvederm Voluma increases volume and fullness in the cheeks.


If you are looking for a natural dermal filler Radiesse injects calcium hydroxylapatite, which is naturally occurring within the body, to increase volume and fullness in the skin. Radiesse results also last up to a year or more. Furthermore, Radiesse can also be used with lidocaine to reduce discomfort associated with injections


This newer hyaluronic acid filler (the same ingredient in Juvederm) can reduce the appearance of both wrinkles and folds while also increasing volume in the face and lips. This injectable is ideal for targeting finer lines.

What should I expect when I get a dermal filler from my Denver dermatologist?

The process itself is fast and non-invasive. We may apply a topical numbing agent to the skin prior to the injections to alleviate any procedural discomfort. Then we will administer the series of injections to the areas to be treated. This only takes a few minutes.
