Dermal and Lip Fillers for Lost Collagen
Choose from a Range of Volume-Adding Injectables in Madison, WI
A youthful look depends on having the right amount of facial balance. As we age, we naturally lose collagen, fat, muscle, and even bone in our face. That means gravity will take effect, and we may start noticing wrinkles, lines, hollowness, or jowls. In addition to losing volume in our face, we can also notice our lips thinning. Thinning lips can not only lead to noticeable volume loss, but can also alter the main source of support in our lower face. To address these changes due to diminishing tissues and collagen, Madison’s Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center uses injectable dermal fillers to smooth out creases and rebalance the face to help restore a natural look.
Do You Have Questions About Collagen Loss, Lip Fillers, and More?
Injectable dermal and lip fillers are made up of ingredients that are all naturally occurring substances in the body. We have only the best portfolio of fillers at Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center, including the RHA® Collection, Revanesse® Versa™ , Juvederm® Voluma®, and Volux™ XC, as well as members of the Restylane® family, such as Lyft® and Contour®. Our products are meant to individually enhance and restore balance to the face, versus generating unnatural results. These treatments are done in the office over an hour or less and can provide an immediate youthful appearance with minimal downtime or discomfort.
Dermal and lip fillers are great in combination with other services. For example, we may combine fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and a laser treatment. This type of combination addresses collagen and volume loss, lines, and, wrinkles along with the uniformity of the skin. The outcome? A natural and youthful appearance.

Tips to Consider for Your Dermal and Lip Filler Treatment in Madison
At Radiance Skin Therapy, we value education and safety. We choose to implement these extra safety measures while doing our injectable dermal and lip filler services to ensure that your safety is at the forefront of our practices. Here are a few added safety measures taken at Radiance:
- Accuvein: a device that uses vein illumination to help us locate and avoid veins, minimizing the chance of bruising during dermal and lip filler treatments
- Clarius Handheld Ultrasound: a visual tool used to help recognize facial anatomy including skin, muscle, vessels, and fascia. This device also helps to locate filler placement to ensure vessel flow or in the case of needed dissolving.
- Cannula: a blunt-tip tube (“needle”) used to minimize tissue trauma and bruising
- Microcyn: a broad-spectrum anti-microbial spray that we use before, during, and after dermal and lip filler treatments
- Closys Oral Rinse: used prior to any injections around the mouth or lips to kill germs and reduce bacteria
- Silver Gel: an anti-microbial gel applied after treatment to prevent bacterial growth and promote healing
- Hylenex: a solution always kept on hand in the small chance that we need to dissolve the dermal fillers
- Aspiration: a technique of pulling back on the syringe plunger to be sure there is not a flash of blood, prompting re-positioning of the needle during dermal and lip filler treatments
- Advanced Education: ongoing learning to provide our clients with the safest and best results
Information About Dermal and Lip Fillers at Radiance
RHA® Redensity, RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4 is a collection of injectable dermal fillers designed for dynamic wrinkles of the face. Radiance Skin Therapy is excited to be the first and exclusive provider of RHA® in Madison, WI. The innovative hyaluronic acid filler collection is resilient enough to adapt to the constant movements of the face. Its adaptability allows us to offer natural looking results, whether for smoothing fine lines around the mouth, improving the appearance of wrinkles, facial folds, under eye hollowness, enhancing the lips, adding lost volume in the cheeks, or defining your jawline or chin. The results are long-lasting, with effects typically remaining for six to twelve months.
Versa™ is an injectable dermal filler which can improve the appearance of lines, facial folds, under eye hollowness and enhance the lips. Versa™ is another filler that Radiance is proud to bring to Madison as, currently, an exclusive provider. Versa™ is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all species, that has a high affinity and binding ability to water. The results are very natural, smooth, and long-lasting. Effects can remain for six to twelve months.
Juvederm® is a family of dermal fillers that can enhance and contour facial features like the chin, cheeks, and jawlines, where collagen diminishes over time. The results are very natural and long lasting, with effects typically remaining for up to 12 months.
Juvederm® Products Available at Radiance:
VOLUX™ XC – Recently FDA approved in August of 2022 for the improvement of jawline definition. This unique hyaluronic acid dermal filler is a robust gel that has lifting ability to define the jawline, providing a more chiseled, sharp appearance.
Voluma® – Was FDA approved in 2013, and the first and only filler to temporarily correct age-related collagen and volume loss in the cheek area. Uses Vycross®technology that results in a smooth gel, which contributes to the lift capacity, as well as the duration of the product. Results can last up to two years with full correction.
Restylane® was the first dermal filler to be approved by the FDA, back in December of 2003. It is a hyaluronic acid used to soften facial wrinkles and folds. It will volumize and contour many areas of the face that have lost collagen. The results typically last six months or longer, with minimal downtime.
Restylane® Products Available at Radiance:
Lyft® – Contains larger particles of hyaluronic acid, making it ideal for natural-looking volume. Lyft is FDA-cleared for both Cheeks and Hands!
Contour® – Is an HA filler designed to refresh the contours of the midface from lost volume. This unique technology is designed to move with your expressions while still providing a more balanced contour.
RADIESSE® is an injectable dermal filler that is calcium and hyaluronic acid based. Radiesse® provides immediate volume restoration as well as stimulating your body to produce new collagen. Approved by the FDA in 2006, Radiesse® helps to restore a youthful look to hands by reducing the appearance of veins and tendons and helps to smooth dimpling on the buttocks. Results last up to a year in most patients.
Sculptra Aesthetic® is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. Sculptra Aesthetic® gives you subtle results over time by gradually replacing lost collagen, resulting in a more natural-looking appearance. It helps correct the shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that tend to appear with aging. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. Sculptra Aesthetic® is usually done in a series of three treatments. It offers a natural progressive enhancement that occurs over three or more months. Once the series is completed, most people can expect to maintain their results with one treatment per year.
