Although BOTOX® Cosmetic might be the most well-known injectable treatment, there are several other options on the market today, including Restylane®, RADIESSE®, and JUVÉDERM®. Our Denver med spa offers these injectable fillers to treat wrinkles on the lower portion of the face, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
For comprehensive correction of facial wrinkles, we may recommend combining your injectable filler treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic. The highly trained, professional staff at Campanile Plastic Surgery will help you make the right decision for your goals.

JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the skin that helps to provide volume. Available in several different formulation strengths, JUVÉDERM® is a good choice for reducing wrinkles and softening facial folds, and this injectable also can be used for lip enhancement or to improve the appearance of certain types of scars. Patients generally see results last 6 to 9 months before a touch-up is necessary.
Restylane® was one of the very first hyaluronic acid fillers available on the market, and remains a leading treatment. Restylane® can be used in various locations on the body, both for addressing aging signs such as wrinkles or for enhancing small areas like the lips. Like JUVÉDERM®, results typically last 6 to 9 months.
RADIESSE® does not use hyaluronic acid like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®, but instead is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral which already exists in the body naturally. Ideal for very deep lines, RADIESSE® injections actually stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, making results even more dramatic and long-lasting while still looking very natural. In some cases, our patients can go a year or more between treatments.
Which Is Right for Me?
Each injectable offers subtle differences in terms of treatment results. Often, the filler that’s right for you will come down to which filler in our experience works best for a certain type of wrinkle in a certain area. For instance, JUVÉDERM® is particularly good at smoothing out nasolabial folds and for lip enhancement.
Today’s injectable treatments have made it easier than ever to see a younger-looking face in your mirror every morning. Whether choosing JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, or RADIESSE®, Denver patients have many options for looking their absolute best.
