Neuromodulators & Dermal Fillers: the Lowdown on Injectables (real quick) !

Confused about what you need? Neuromodulators and Dermal Fillers are the must-haves of the 2020s. But which ones are right for you? At VillanoMD we’re the experts, and we are here to help you select which options are the Best options. We’re not about the latest buzz; what we look for are the safest and proven effective options. We study the field and understand how these products work—before, during, and after use. The products we offer pass the standards of safety and reliability.

Injectable Neuromodulators

Every time you squint in the direction of the sun or laugh hard enough to crinkle your eyes, you’re wearing wrinkles into your skin. No one can avoid facial expressions, and who would want to? But not everyone wants plastic surgery either. Injectable neuromodulators are FDA-approved, non-surgical alternatives to smoothing out unwanted lines and creases. Once injected into the muscle, these neurotoxins block nerve signals that are traveling to the muscles, which causes a reduction in muscle activity. This smooths out the skin that contained wrinkles before the injection, and the effects last until the toxin is fully absorbed. Whether you are looking to smooth forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet or creases across the neck, the neuromodulators offered at VillanoMD are proven safe and reliable.

Dermal Fillers

Collagen is the protein responsible for the strength and texture of our skin. Abundant collagen is the reason why kids and babies have that soft, luminous glow. The youthful face, the face we all admire, is one that is collagen-rich. But as the years go by the collagen in our skin begins to degrade, and slowing collagen production causes the skin on our face to become looser and the cushioning underneath thinner. The result? Wrinkles and folds begin to take hold. Dermal fillers combat the skin laxity that is inevitable as we age. They are injected into or just under the skin in small amounts to restore the volume and structure that has been lost over time, enhancing contours and facial volume. The dermal fillers offered at VillanoMD are FDA-approved, proven safe and effective.

Botox® Cosmetic

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better.

Don’t let your frown lines between your eyebrows define you. For adults who want a natural look, Dysport is a natural-looking, fast-acting, long-lasting injection proven to help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows—without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Dysport is approved in 69 countries and is supported by 25 years of clinical experience worldwide. Fully 97% of women treated with Dysport say they’d do it again.

Restylane® / Restylane family of products

Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines). Additionally, Restylane is FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 and is uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.

Restylane® Refyne

Restylane Refyne is designed with XpresHAn Technology to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions. So, you always look like you.

As we age and lose volume in the midface, we also lose definition in the cheeks. Restylane Contour is the only cheek filler with XpresHAn Technology™ that restores your natural contour, frees dynamic expression, and refreshes your look. Balancing the science and art of aesthetics, this unique injectable hyaluronic acid gel creates natural-looking, subtly rejuvenated cheeks that are reminiscent of your younger self, but true to what makes you beautiful today.

RHA® Redensity (RHA2, RHA3, RHA4)

Your face is dynamic—making millions of movements every day. Repetitive movements like laughing and talking create facial lines called dynamic wrinkles and folds. Because these areas are mobile, treating facial lines can be difficult. Sometimes fillers can make the treated area look stiff and unnatural when the face is moving. The RHA® Collection is different. It is designed to be resilient enough to adapt to your dynamic facial movements for a look that’s beautiful at rest and flawless in motion. RHA is designed for a natural look. Your skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which provides moisture, volume, and structure that help it appear smooth and refreshed. Your skin produces less HA over time as we age. The RHA® Collection uses a gentle manufacturing process to help preserve the natural structure of HA—allowing it to more closely resemble the HA in your skin—for clean beauty. Choose from amongst the following: RHA Redensity – A weightless filler that smooths delicate lipstick lines; RHA2 & RHA3 – Fillers that result in elegant and refined smoothing for those seeking a soft, natural look; RHA4 – Natural volume for deeper dynamic wrinkles and folds.

Timeless Beauty is that simple. Really.
