What Causes Signs of Aging?
If you’ve ever wondered why younger people look so young, it’s typically because their faces are still full of healthy amounts of fat, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen is a connective tissue that gives strength, elasticity and protection to the skin. Hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant and moisturizer for the skin. As a natural part of the aging process, collagen starts breaking down and the amount of hyaluronic acid lessens. As a result of reduced moisture, strength and elasticity, our once plump, smooth skin starts to show signs of wrinkles, lines, sagging and volume loss. Mix this natural occurrence with certain lifestyle choices such as sun exposure or smoking, and those signs of aging will be magnified.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are one of the simplest solutions to signs of aging, particularly a loss of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and overall skin volume. Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that use gel-like formulas to restore volume to the skin. These products are typically made with hyaluronic acid, which helps them provide a natural-looking plumpness to the skin that smooths out lines and wrinkles. At Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics, we offer a variety of dermal filler treatments in Lone Tree and Aspen, Colorado, to meet the different needs of our patients.

What is the Dermal Filler Treatment Like?
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin in specific areas of the face. Prior to treatment, a numbing cream or local anesthesia may be administered to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Some of our dermal filler products also include lidocaine to help further reduce any discomfort. Upon injection, the dermal filler gel immediately plumps the skin and smooths out lines and wrinkles. We may lightly massage the treatment area to ensure the dermal filler product is evenly distributed. The injection process takes only a few minutes, which means that the full dermal filler appointment typically takes less than 30 minutes.
Is There Any Downtime After Dermal Fillers?
There is little to no downtime after dermal fillers, which means that patients can get back to all of their normal activities immediately after their appointment. Patients may experience minor swelling or bruising in the treatment area, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days.
How Long Do Dermal Filler Results Last?
The results of dermal filler injections will vary based on your own unique skin, which type of dermal filler is used and how you care for your skin after treatment. Results can last from 1 to 2 years; injections usually must be repeated to maintain the results.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?
The cost of dermal filler treatments will vary depending on the product and how many injections are needed to produce the desired results. At Colorado Ophthalmology and CosMEDics, our dermal filler treatments start around $600. Before your treatment, Christine will do a one-on-one consultation to make sure you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. After this consultation, we can provide you with the specific costs associated with your treatment.
