About Injectable Fillers
Aging is an inevitable part of life that affects us all differently. As the years pass, our skin typically loses some of its tightness and our natural facial fat begins to thin out. This can lead to deep wrinkles in the face that make us appear tired or older than our years. Injectable fillers can minimize the appearance of these lines and restore lost facial volume to create a more youthful look.
The medical spa at Campanile Plastic Surgery in Denver offers a range of injectable fillers, including Restylane®, RADIESSE® and JUVÉDERM® to help men and women look and feel refreshed and revived. The low risk of adverse reaction combined with a quick procedure and virtually no recovery period is making injectables one of the most commonly requested treatments we offer.
Dr. Francesco Campanile and his dedicated staff will work closely with you to determine which treatments can best help you achieve the results you’re hoping for.

Your Injectable Filler Treatment
For the first step of your treatment, Dr. Campanile and his highly skilled team will mark strategic areas of your face for the injection sites. Next, a cleansing antiseptic solution will be applied to your skin. Numbing ointment or local anesthesia may be administered for your comfort.
The injection itself takes only a few moments. Depending upon the number of areas to be treated, the session can take from 15 minutes to an hour. And depending upon the type of injectable you received, your results may be visible quite soon or develop over the following days.
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 strengths, JUVÉDERM is an excellent choice for reducing wrinkles and softening facial folds, and can also be used for lip enhancement or to improve the appearance of certain types of scars.
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 places on the body to address signs of aging or for enhancing small areas like the lips. Dr. Campanile and his staff can help you decide whether Restylane or JUVÉDERM is best for your unique needs.
RADIESSE is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral that exists in the body naturally. Ideal for deep lines, RADIESSE injections stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, making results even more dramatic and long-lasting while still looking very natural. In some cases, people can go a year or more between treatments.
The Best Results
Customizing the procedure to your specific needs and cosmetic goals is the best way to ensure an optimal outcome. For comprehensive correction of facial wrinkles, you may wish to combine your injectable filler treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic.
Dr. Campanile and his staff may also suggest medical grade skin care products to ensure that your skin benefits from the best regular care.

Injectable Fillers FAQs
Am I a good candidate for dermal facial fillers?
If you feel like signs of aging are becoming more visible on your face, or you have deep wrinkles or minor facial scars, an injectable filler may be right for you. Injectable fillers are also FDA-approved to plump up thin lips or add volume to hollow areas of the face.
How do injectables work?
Using a chemical makeup that is similar to compounds found naturally within the body, injectables are used to add volume to specific target areas. JUVÉDERM and Restylane are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, while RADIESSE is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, another naturally occurring mineral already within the body. These injectable fillers are FDA-approved for temporarily treating deep lines.
What areas can be treated with injectable fillers?
Examples of common locations for treatment include the “parentheses lines” around the mouth, deeper furrows in the brow and finer lines throughout the face. If you have childhood scars, acne scars or other surface unevenness, these also may be treated with injectable fillers.
How are injectable facial fillers different from BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily paralyzes the muscles of the face that cause dynamic wrinkles. Fillers can minimize existing wrinkles without affecting the muscle movement. Additionally, injectable fillers can also be used to add volume if needed for fuller lips or cheeks, which BOTOX cannot do.
What happens during my dermal filler injection?
Dr. Campanile will determine the best injection sites for your desired results. A topical anesthetic may be applied before your treatment, and the injections themselves should take just a few minutes.
How long does it take for fillers to work?
Many patients see a difference very quickly after their appointment, although your results may be initially disguised by minor swelling in some cases.
What should I expect after dermal fillers?
There is virtually zero downtime following injectable fillers. Some patients may experience slight redness or irritation at the injection site, which can typically be relieved with cold compresses. Dr. Campanile does advise patients to remain upright and take it easy for a few hours after treatment, but then you should be able to get right back to your normal schedule.
How long will my results last after injectable fillers?
Injectable fillers are a temporary treatment and require periodic touch-ups to maintain results. Although individual results vary, many men and women who receive Restylane and JUVÉDERM injections experience results that can last between 6 and 9 months. While results from RADIESSE injections can last up to a year in some patients.
