Dermal Fillers

At Artistry Skin & Laser, our dermal filler treatments are performed by Nurse Practitioner, Laura Carlsen. Laura offers over 15 years of experience with advanced injection techniques and safety protocols. She is passionate about ensuring natural-looking results, enhancing facial structure, and balancing features to deliver the rejuvenation you desire safely and effectively.

How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers work by injecting a gel-like substance into the skin, plumping, contouring, and hydrating it. Depending on the formula, fillers can provide volume and significantly enhance facial contours, resulting in a more youthful and balanced appearance. To create a customized treatment plan unique to each client’s goals, we carry a wide array of different fillers, including:

Recovery and Results of Dermal Fillers

Most filler side effects are temporary and should fade within a few days. You should expect minor swelling and redness, which typically disappears within two days. Bruising is also a risk, so we recommend doing your filler 2 weeks prior to any important event.

The longevity of the results often depends on how fast your body processes the filler. As a general rule, dermal fillers last for about six to 24 months.

To maintain the results for as long as possible, you should avoid touching the treated area in the first few days. Avoid extensive exercise until the product is absorbed, and wear sunblock when going out. To maintain the voluminous aspect, we recommend touch-up appointments every 6 months.


Which Dermal Filler is right for me?
We carry about ten different types of filler. Each have tiny characteristics that differentiate from one filler to the next. We suggest a free consultation to find one that fits not only your skin and facial structure, but your pocketbook as well.
Will I retain my facial dexterity after receiving Dermal Fillers?
Thicker fillers may have an effect on the dynamic movement of your face. Sometimes we are creating symmetry where none exists. But, in most cases you should be able to fully move the areas treated by filler.
How should I prepare for my Cosmetic Injectable Treatment?
Avoid blood thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, garlic, ginger, gingko biloba and vitamin E up to 2 weeks prior to treatment to reduce the risk of bruising.
How long does the typical Dermal Fillers procedure take?

That depends on how long the consultation takes. Once we have a plan in place, each injectable vial typically takes about 20 minutes to put in.

Are there any side effects associated with the Dermal Filler procedure?
The most common side effects include bruising, tenderness and swelling. Other side effects can include headaches, redness, itching, cold sores, lumpiness. Potential and rare side effects include necrosis. This happens when the filler blocks a vessel causing the skin above to not receive oxygen, leading to open wounds and vessel damage. The majority of fillers used are dissolvable and therefore less risky since we can reverse their effect. Side effects should be fully discussed with your provider before the procedure.
How long do dermal fillers last?

The average filler lasts 6 months to 1 year. As the substance of the filler is broken down by the body’s enzymes, everyone is a little different with how long this process takes. Some injectable fillers are designed to be longer lasting. Sculptra for instance can last up to 3 years and Juvederm Voluma up to 2 years. The amount injected and the placement of the filler are also variables. Occasionally you find people that break down their filler in 1-2 months or where filler lasts 3-4 years.

Before & After

What Our Clients Say

You are worth your weight in gold. Thank you so much. My face looks amazing and I’m very happy, especially with what you did around my mouth. You are amazing.

B. D.

During my years working in the cosmetic industry I have had several different injectors… doctors, surgeons and nurses. I have to say Laura Carlsen is the BEST. She has a gentle touch and an artist’s eye, she listens to her patients and is committed to achieving THEIR desired results. Not only did get me amazing results I saw her treat hundreds of patients with the same outcome. I trust her so much that still fly to Denver from NYC (even with 1000’s of good injectors here) to be treated by her. If you are looking to enhance and freshen up your look without being “overdone” go see her, you will be glad you did.


After 10 years of getting botox with someone else, who I really liked, I thought I’d try the “new place” that opened up closer to me. I’m so glad I did! Laura was so great. She has a gentle touch, but even better, my results are perfection! My lines are gone, but I also look natural. She took her time, talked to me about what I wanted, and gave me her advice. She was right about everything. I’m grateful and glad I took a chance on something new. I’ve found my new home. I’m telling all of my girlfriends too. See you soon, Lisa


Working in the cosmetic industry for over ten years, I am very picky about where I go for filler and injections.
Laura, is by far, the best injector I’ve ever been to! She is extremely knowledgeable and always makes me feel comfortable. Her technique leaves me looking very natural and not “frozen” or over done(which is easy to do). Also, if you’ve never had Botox or fillers, she is extremely gentle. Definitely a huge plus!!

In addition to Botox and filler (Restylane, Juvederm and Volbella), I have also seen Laura to treat my chronic migraines and have had two treatments of Kybella!!! She really is an artist and I’m so happy to have found her!


The facility is very clean and inviting. Friendly staff. Most importantly, Laura is amazing! She is extremely knowledgeable, honest, And professional. I would recommend her and her facility over any other.

Jenna D.

This is the place to go if you are wanting a little work on your skin, face or body. Artistry was well named for this business as Laura (the owner) is a true artist at her craft. There is no one else that I would even allow to give me injections than her. And she is warm and friendly-I always leave feeling better about the world.

Lisa A.

I had the most remarkable experience a few weeks ago… Laura, who I admire and respect came in on a Saturday and not only gave me a unbelievable micro infusion facial but, also botox and just the perfect amount……
She listen too my concerns about not too much! Which is a beautiful thing because a lot of nurses do what they think you need, Laura did exactly what we discussed and this is why I will always make a special trip whenever possible from park city!

Crystal J.

I have been going to Laura for quite a few years and she is the absolute best. I have sent my friends to her as well and they all LOVE her. The new spa is beautiful and so welcoming!

Tricia L.

Laura is an outstanding aesthetician. Highly educated, very knowledgeable and extremely compassionate with her customers. She has YEARS of experience giving quality care and services!

KC Acampora

Laura is amazing! And just as her spa is named, she’s a skin care artist that’s very knowledgeable about the latest techniques and products! I’ve been a client for a few years now and I wouldn’t go to anyone else. I trust Laura and I’m always extremely happy with the outcome of her work!
Lindie is a sweetheart, and the rest of the Artistry staff are so warm and friendly, you feel right at home. Look no further than Artistry…you’ll be thrilled with your results, too!

Laura A.

I just wanted to send you guys a note to let you know I got to try out my newly tightened vagina recently and even after just one treatment I noticed a significant change.  I can’t thank you enough.  Going into menopause so early has been very difficult and this tiny procedure has made a world of difference to me.  So thank you so so much.
