JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® in Denver, CO
Many of the early signs of aging in the face are the result of lost volume and hydration in the skin. That "tired" or lax look that starts to bother you in your 30s or 40s results from skin that is losing its elasticity and youthful "plumpness." As the fat pads in the cheeks break down, nasolabial folds or "smile lines" can become more prominent. As lips lose volume, lines around the mouth may become more pronounced. Most of these concerns can be greatly improved with JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel or Restylane® treatments in Denver, CO.
Dr. Michael Menachof offers both of these dermal fillers for his patients who want facial enhancement without cosmetic surgery. At Aesthetics Medical Day Spa, Dr. Menachof performs these treatments in a safe, medically supervised environment, either alone or to enhance the results of your cosmetic surgery procedure.

Why Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?
Both JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel and Restylane are hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and combines with collagen and elastin to form the skin's underlying support structure. Both JUVÉDERM and Restylane do not require allergy testing, and they are biocompatible and biodegradable, which means that the body will naturally and safely metabolize them over a period of time. Hyaluronic acid based fillers add volume and hydration, and can:
- Diminish the appearance of folds and wrinkles in the face, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines) and forehead furrows
- Fill indentations such as acne scars, tear troughs, or hollows under the eyes
- Create fuller lips
- Improve facial contours by adding volume to the cheeks
While injectable fillers can never achieve the same results as a facelift at my Denver area practice, they are an excellent option for younger patients who want to delay the appearance of aging. Another popular procedure is laser skin resurfacing in Denver for individuals who want healthier, more vibrant skin.
JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel is a smooth consistency gel that comes in several formulations to address a variety of concerns. This popular family of products is produced by the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic, and is used most frequently for adding volume to nasolabial folds - the deep creases that form "parentheses" around the corners of the mouth. JUVÉDERM results typically last 9 to 12 months, but may last longer with regularly scheduled treatments.
Restylane is another popular dermal filler that is widely used for lip enhancement treatments at our Denver, CO office. It is also very effective for raising indentations such as the tear troughs or hollows underneath your eyes, raising and adding youthful fullness to the area just underneath your eyebrow and just above your eye, or filling the indented scars left by acne. Results from Restylane last approximately 6 months, and longevity may increase with regular treatments.
Treatment with dermal fillers involves a series of tiny injections by Dr. Menachof, who understands both the art and the science of dermal fillers, and can perform the injections quickly and comfortably. Unlike BOTOX, Denver patients will see results immediately following their 15 to 30 minute procedure. As with all of Dr. Menachof's injections, patients experience minimal redness and swelling at the injection site. Most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately.
