Neurotoxins vs. Fillers
What’s the Difference between Neurotoxins and Filler?
Even though fillers and neurotoxins both reduce wrinkles, they work in completely different ways.
Fillers minimize the lines and wrinkles caused as the skin loses both its elasticity and its youthful volume. When injected, fillers restore volume where it’s been lost to create a smoother appearance.
Neurotoxins, on the other hand, addresses “dynamic wrinkles” — those caused by the repetitive contractions of facial muscles as we change expressions. Neurotoxins, also known as a neuromodulator, temporarily immobilizes those tiny muscles.

Loss of collagen is an unfortunate result of age which can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and creases that mark the face. Thankfully, with these services offered by A Younger You Medical Spa these cosmetic concerns are conquerable.
Restylane® is an injectable dermal filler made of a solution of Hyaluronic Acid, a chemical that is already naturally present inside the body. The solution is designed to treat the areas that surround the mouth, like the jowls, lips and cheeks. The Restylane® solution will then facilitate the restoration of collagen and soft tissue, providing the dual function of clearing creases and lines while also volumizing the area of injection.
The procedure in itself should take less than an hour to complete. Restylane®, when properly administered, will smooth the skin and liven up its tone with minimal irritation and minimal downtime.
Restylane® Lyft utilizes a formula of hyaluronic acid that is specifically tailored for the cheeks. This product is best used for the definition of the midface contour and the treatment of nasolabial folds.
Similar to the other Restylane® products, this is a non-surgical, injectable treatment that takes about an hour to complete in most cases, with minimal downtime required.
Restylane® Lyft can help to restore the loss of volume to the cheeks that is caused by age as well as the decrease of soft tissue that comes with it.

Restylane Contour is the only cheek filler that uses XpresHAn Technology(tm) (pronounced like “expression”) for flexible movement and natura-looking results. It creates and restores midface shape for a flexible and smooth contour.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is injected below the skin to give the cheeks or hands a fuller appearance. It is made from calcium hydroxylapatite and is approved by the FDA for subdermal use. These injections are ideal for treating folds and wrinkles or augmenting the cheeks.
The procedure only takes about 20 to 40 minutes. The length of time for your session depends on the amount of injections needed and the treatment area’s size and condition. When we administer Radiesse® injections, we add a mild anesthetic into the syringe to reduce discomfort and also provide ice packs.
