FAQ

How do dermal fillers work?

To put it simply, fillers are injected into the skin where lines and wrinkles have formed with the purpose of “filling” in those areas and creating a smoothing effect. The majority of fillers on the market can be lumped into one of two categories: those that contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body that serves as the building block of youthful skin, and those that contain calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), a mineral-like compound found naturally in your bones.


HA fillers are great for adding both fullness and hydration, as are CaHA fillers. But naturally occurring HA production diminishes as we age, hence the need for replenishment with fillers. HA holds much more than its own weight in water, so it adds both fullness and hydration when injected in the form of dermal fillers. HA also helps boost your own natural collagen production, leading to more long-term results for regular users.


CaHA, on the other hand, is biosynthetically produced, which means there are no animal products. That translates to a lower risk for allergic reaction. This type of filler is also known to produce very natural results with a low risk of side effects. Upon injection, the special gel-like substance provides immediate improvement as the CaHA particles integrate into your skin and create a kind of “scaffold” that stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which means longer lasting results.

When will I see results from fillers and how long do they last?

The cosmetic results of filler injections are most often immediate, natural, and subtle. They’re also long-lasting but not permanent. The filler substance is eventually metabolized by the body’s normal processes. But most people enjoy anywhere from 6-18 months of the full filler effect (depending on the exact type of filler used), thanks to the collagen and elastin produced. It also depends on your individual body chemistry and where the filler is used. To maintain desired results, injections may be repeated periodically to keep that smooth, sexy look.

How does botox (Xeomin) work to smooth wrinkles?

Xeomin (IncobotulinumtoxinA) is injected into the skin where lines and wrinkles are present. There, it binds to nerve endings in the muscle beneath the skin to temporarily stop the contractions that cause skin creasing in the first place. The result is reduced or eliminated frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other wrinkles, giving your skin a noticeably smoother appearance for several months and leaving people guessing your real age.

What can botox (Xeomin) treat?

At ZenVita, Keysha (our resident syringe savant), uses botox for a laundry list of concerns, including:

Fine lines and wrinkles have met their match.

PURE FOR A REASON And the reason is you. Xeomin® is a smart toxin with a double-filtered formula that removes unnecessary proteins, so you get only what’s needed for smoother frown lines, treatment after treatment. Aging skin eventually catches up to us all with those pesky fine lines and wrinkles that seem to show up out of nowhere. And let’s face it – all our time in sunny Colorado doesn’t necessarily help matters. Fortunately, there are cosmetic options that can combat these aging effects, such as Xeomin. Xeomin is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that effectively smooths lines and wrinkles on the face, providing a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Many people choose regular treatments with botox to maintain a smoother appearance and prevent further signs of aging.
