To treat aging-related issues, many patients seek treatment with injectables. These products offer quick and convenient non-surgical revitalization and are quite popular.
At Vitalyc Medspa, we offer two main types of injectables: neuromodulators and dermal fillers. The neuromodulators (also known as anti-aging injections) that we provide are Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau. The fillers we offer are Radiesse, Juvederm, Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, Restylane, and Refyne/Defyne.book a complimentary consultation

What Are Neuromodulators?
Injectable neuromodulators, often called wrinkle injections or anti-aging injections, are products composed of botulinum toxin type A and are used to treat fine age lines. Repeated muscle movements over time (such as forming facial expressions and performing actions like chewing) lead to contracted muscles. Neuromodulators block muscle movements, relaxing the muscles to eliminate wrinkles.
Botox and Dysport are the two most popular options for neuromodulators, and we also carry several other options. Choosing a brand is often a matter of personal preference, and they all create the same result: a decrease in visible fine lines and wrinkles in 7 to 14 days.
These products are most effective on surface wrinkles and cannot be used to treat deep wrinkles effectively. For treatment of deep wrinkles, dermal fillers are typically a better choice.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are products composed of synthetic versions of substances found naturally in the human body. These substances include hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.Fillers are used to create volume in, or “build up,” areas. They can be used to treat thin lips, sunken cheeks, or a non-existent jawline. Fillers are injected directly into the target area, naturally filling in moderate and harsh wrinkles and folds. Many stimulate creation of new collagen and elastin protein, restoring skin health.Restylane and Juvederm are used more generally to address a variety of issues. Other filler options in the Restylane and Juvederm families of products are specifically used for certain types of rejuvenation:
- Voluma – Restores Cheek Volume
- Volbella – Enhances Thin Lips
- Vollure – Fills in Harsh Nasolabial Folds
- Refyne/Defyne – Fills in Harsh Nasolabial Folds
First, the areas to be treated will be carefully marked as a guide. If necessary, topical or local anesthesia will then be administered to ensure that the process is comfortable. In some cases, products contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, making separate injection of local anesthesia unnecessary.
Once the anesthesia takes effect, the skilled medical professional will inject the chosen product into the targeted areas. These injections can be made in a number of areas during a single session.
After an Injectable Treatment
Following a treatment session, patients will be able to return to their normal daily activities without any need for downtime or recovery time. This makes injectable treatments extremely convenient, especially in comparison to surgical services, which often require weeks or even months of healing.
A small degree of temporary swelling, bruising, or redness may be present at the treatment sites. Avoid scratching or rubbing the treated areas and do not apply any heat.
The effects of your injectable treatment may either be seen immediately or over time. Most dermal fillers provide immediate results, whereas neuromodulator results typically start to appear in a few days.
Injectables are not permanent, and the effects can last anywhere from three months to two years or sometimes even longer. Duration of results depends on factors like the specific product chosen and the patient’s unique physiology. Touch-ups and maintenance treatments are usually available.
Why Are Injectables Called “Lunchtime Services”?
Injectables are called “lunchtime services” because they can be quickly and efficiently performed during a person’s lunch break. Patients can return to their workday without the need for downtime or healing, and days off are not required.
What’s the Difference Between Neuromodulators and Fillers?
Neuromodulators relax muscles to resolve fine wrinkles, whereas fillers restore skin volume to address moderate and harsh wrinkles and hollow regions. Filler results also last longer than the results of neuromodulators.
What Do I Do If I’m Unhappy with My Treatment Results?
Touch-ups can be performed to adjust/improve results in cases where patients are unhappy. In the case of hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, results can be reversed with the help of a simple hyaluronidase injection.
Can I Come Back for Maintenance Treatments?
In most cases, once the results of an injectable treatment start to fade, patients can come back in for maintenance treatments to preserve their new appearance.
