Neurotoxins vs. Dermal Fillers
What’s the Difference between Neurotoxins and Filler?
Even though dermal 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 Restylane® products offered by A Younger You Medical Spa—Restylane® & Restylane® Lyft—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.
Designed with revolutionary XpresHAn Technology, Restylane® Refyne is a specialized dermal filler that can remedy the appearance of laugh lines for a naturally younger appeal. This unique member of the Restylane® family of anti-aging formulas is mainly based with hyaluronic acid to restore facial volume without hindering muscle movement. Through Restylane® Refyne, nasolabial folds and marionette lines can appear softer while you remain in control of your looks, rather the other way around.
