Denver Juvederm®Many patients in the Denver area opt for injectable treatments to help reduce the signs of aging. It's important to know the differences between the injectable treatments that Facial Aesthetics offers, as each has their own unique set of benefits and addresses different cosmetic issues. For instance, Juvederm® and BOTOX® Cosmetic have varying functions. Both can help restore your youthful look, but in different ways.


Juvederm® is an injectable gel solution that contains hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally occurring in your own body, and works to hydrate your skin and provide volume. When properly injected by our medical aesthetician, Juvederm® can fill out target areas reducing deep-set wrinkles.

This injectable treatment can be used to reduce age-related, cosmetic side effects, including:

  • Lines found between the nose and upper lip
  • Smile lines
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • "Marionette lines" (lines from mouth to chin)

Some of the benefits associated with this in-office procedure include:

  • Immediate, natural looking results
  • Treatment can last up to one year
  • Little to no recovery time
  • Virtually pain free

Because Juvederm® is made from a naturally occurring substance, it is a very safe dermal filler treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic, similar to Juvederm®, is an injectable procedure that treats signs of aging. However, it works differently than Juvederm®. The solution that makes up BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into target areas, temporarily relaxing the muscles. This reduces the appearance of fine lines in areas of the face, such as:

  • Forehead
  • Area between the eyebrows
  • Corners of the eyes

Many patients opt for this treatment for its many benefits, including:

  • Visible results within a few days
  • Nearly painless
  • Little to no downtime
