Although this isn’t an Adonis patient, we thought this Radiesse testimonial was worth sharing!
“I had Radiesse injected in the nasolabial folds and other areas around my face. My objective was to look less tired. The results look natural, and not only do I look less tired, I has somebody call me young lady the other day! I am 40 plus, this was unexpected and appreciated!”
Upon injection, Radiesse immediately adds volume to safely contour, correct, and beautify facial features.
Radiesse dermal filler actually helps your body create its own naturally younger look. RADIESSE wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
Radiesse can help add volume to:
Smile Lines – Lines and creases run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and get deeper as we age and lose facial volume.
Marionette Lines – Lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth can make you look like you’re frowning, even when you’re not.

One of the most revolutionary discoveries for cosmetic/aesthetic industry in this decade is the development along with easy access of fillers. Compared to aggressive nip and tuck of facelift surgery, fillers, along with non-invasive skin tightening procedures, have achieved a younger and less tired look for so many people without any downtime and almost without pain.
There’s a new understanding that what makes a person’s face look young, is not how much skin has been cut and pulled up, but how much fat is left in place to support the skin. As we age, we not only lose elasticity in our skin, thus the draping look of an old face, but also the fat underneath the skin which gives support to maintain its position above the bony structure. Cutting away the excess skin alone will not recreate the skin suspension that we had in our younger days.
Dermal fillers have been around for some time; natural substance such as one’s own fat was first used, but this was not always predictable in the outcome. The initial non-human filler was paraffin and liquid silicone. The next generation of fillers was bovine and later human collagens. Bovine collagen required allergy testing due to immune response.
It wasn’t until we saw the advent of hyaluronic acid fillers (such as Restylane, Hylaform, Juvederm, and newest Belotero) that the current dermal filler industry took off. Since early 2000, we have seen not only hyaluronic acid fillers but other combination fillers such as Radiesse, Scuptra, and Artefill. In fact, the field is burgeoning with newer and more fillers.
Appropriate use of dermal fillers has revolutionized the aesthetic market in recent years. Rather than the expense and pain as well as prolonged recovery related to the cosmetic surgery, people are choosing the dermal fillers which can be easily given to them in an outpatient setting with no recovery time, other than possible bruise that might need to be covered with makeup. Also there is a significant reduction in prices associated with fillers.
Additionally, dermal fillers can be given in gradual fashion so that the correction can be subtle and you don’t have to announce to the world that something was done to your face. And the results are immediate. You don’t have to wait until the swelling and bruising of an operation go down, which can take many months with traditional facelift surgeries.

NewBeauty.com had a good article about the benefits of using fillers, not just in the central part of the face, but in the cheeks, jawline and temples as well.
One of the first things we notice as we age is the loss of facial volume, often the result of a lack of collagen, which keeps the skin full, luminous and elastic.
However, the first places we think of for fillers, the central face and smile lines, aren’t the only ones that could benefit from fillers that replace lost volume, and, in the case of hyaluronic acid fillers, increase collagen production.
The lateral areas of the face—temples, cheeks and jawline—should be considered as well.
What lateral volumization does is bring the face back to its natural form—gentler, rounder, softer and very hard for the naked eye to detect that something has been done. It completes the picture for the patient.
Ready to bring your face back to its natural form and replace lost volume? Dr. Rina Shinn of Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa in Pueblo can help.
Read a great article about rejuvenating runner’s face on Skin Inc. Magazine.
And no, this is not referring to the aggressive face an athlete makes prior to crossing that finish line.
Runner’s face generally occurs in both men and women ages 40 + who exercise to improve their body, and in doing so, end up with a skeletal and bony face.
When exercising, athletes burns off fat beneath the layers of their skin. The marked loss of fatty tissue results in a loss of volume, which leads to a prominent appearance of the bones, accelerated development of skin laxity and deepening of wrinkles.
Runners often have wrinkles for reasons other than running itself. Many runners spend long hours outdoors without proper sun protection, so the wrinkles are a result of sun exposure.
If your skin has taken a beating from pounding the pavement, there are ways to chase those wrinkles away.
Botox treatments can target lines in the brows or around the mouth, but the result typically lasts about three to four months.
Injectable filler treatments to restore volume provide results that last at least a year, and often much longer than that.
Noninvasive treatments, such as chemical peels, and laser skin tightening assist in eradicating the lines formed within the skin itself, such as around the mouth, and greatly contribute to producing a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Shinn of Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa can help with your Runner’s Face. Please call 719-543-5000 for your consulation.
We found these wonderful tips for achieving fuller lips at NewBeauty.com.
- Research suggests that fuller lips may have as much to do with a woman’s perceived age as the appearance of wrinkles.
- The volume in your lips starts to decline as early as in the mid-30s.
- There are two different types of candidates that benefit from lip injections. “One needs volume; the other needs to balance their features.”
- A common concern among women who augment their lips is that they’ll be overfilled, creating a “duck-like” look where the lips jut out.
- But, in the hands of an experienced injector (Like Dr. Rina Shinn of Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa) who can fill the lips incrementally, the lips can be augmented to create a completely natural look.
- Injecting the lips with hyaluronic acid filler likes Restylane or Juvéderm can create fuller, plumper lips.

We found a great article that easily explains how Botox and fillers easily restore a youthful facial contour and erase deep wrinkles and contour the face to re-establish a youthful appearance.
From the article:
Ageing has never been easy on the body or on the mind. The perfect contour of the chin, plump lips, high cheekbones and a slim jaw line are literally a painless prick away.
Popularly referred to as ‘Liquid Facelifts’, dermal fillers and Botox are by far the quickest way to restore lost volume to the face or to rectify problems such as drooping forehead, disproportionate chin or ageing hands.
Fillers: Primarily used to restore lost volume due to ageing, dermal fillers are made of the basic ground substance of your skin-hyaluronic acid that is found in the eyes and joints. Dermal fillers are made of a fully degradable complex sugar molecule and have been used around the world for several years with an outstanding safety record.
Nose: The bridge of the nose can be filled in to make it smoother and nasal flares can be reduced by injecting a little filler material at the laugh line.
Lips: Lips can be plumped at any age as they are a sign of beauty and sensuality. Apart from enhancing your natural lips, fillers can correct thin, crinkled or inverted lips. Fillers for the lips are minimally invasive and aim at restoring lost volume without giving them a ‘trout pout’ look and hydrating dry, flaky lips.
Chin: Fillers can rectify the problem of a long chin or of a short one. Marionette lines that run from the sides of the lips to the chin can be corrected with fillers. Dimples can also be filled up.
Forehead and Eyebrows: Over time, scowl, frown and laugh lines become embedded into the forehead and deepen as elasticity is lost. Fillers can replace the lost volume that translates into wrinkles and lines becoming lighter.
Cheeks: The ageing process is most obvious in this area. The fat deposits inside the cheeks droop and begin to sag making them look hollow. A perfectly rounded pair of cheeks can be achieved by using a higher density filler material. As the skin on the cheeks gets lifted due to the filler material, it also lifts up the laugh lines and makes them appear less severe.
