Botox & Dermal Fillers

What are Botox® and dermal fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers are cosmetic injections the team at Colorado Skin Care uses to reduce the signs of aging and rejuvenate your look by temporarily softening lines and adding volume under your skin. Colorado Skin Care offers a variety of brands to get you the look you want, including:

  • Botox
  • Dysport®
  • Xeomin®
  • Restylane®
  • Juvéderm®   

Botox and dermal fillers have different uses, but can be combined to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. The experts at Colorado Skin Care work one-on-one with you to design a plan that gives you the best results.

How does Botox work?

Botox is used to temporarily reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles by stopping the movement of the muscle under your skin. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are the brands of the cosmetic injections.

Aging causes many changes to your skin that make it more vulnerable to the development of lines and wrinkles, including a loss of subcutaneous fat and a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin. When fat stores diminish, the muscles work closer to the surface of your skin and create lines when you make facial expressions. Collagen and elastin are responsible for strength and elasticity, and when production decreases, your skin isn’t able to smooth out the lines, creases, and wrinkles created by the folding action.

Botox injections at Colorado Skin Care take only a few minutes to administer, cause little discomfort, and require no downtime. Depending on the brand of Botox used for your injections, you should start to notice an improvement in your look within one to seven days, and your results may last up to four months. 

How do dermal fillers work?

The hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used at Colorado Skin Care restore your lost volume and can last up to 18 months. Juvéderm and Restylane are the brands of dermal fillers offered at the dermatology practice. The team generally uses these dermal fillers in the areas of the skin that’s lost elasticity, most often around the mouth and cheeks. The fillers act like an inflated cushion to provide support to these facial structures. 

Dermal filler injections may take up to an hour to administer, and the team may apply a numbing agent to your skin prior to the injections in order to minimize discomfort. Like Botox, downtime isn’t usually needed after dermal filler injections.

Combined with a chemical peel, your Botox and dermal filler injections may make your skin look decades younger.
