Most people begin noticing the first signs of aging sometime in their mid-to-late 30s. While the wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and facial deflation that come along with aging are to be expected, you don’t have to live with them — cosmetic injectables can help you turn back the hands of time. At Victoria Biondi, MD in Bristol, Connecticut, Dr. Victoria Biondi and her team of aesthetic medicine experts offer several top cosmetic injectables, including Botox® and dermal fillers.

Botulinum toxin (Type A) is a natural, purified protein that's used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Botox is a neurotoxin that works by blocking the nerve signals that cause your facial muscles to contract, leaving your skin looking naturally smoother.
Using a tiny needle, small doses of the protein are injected into specific points in your facial anatomy to relax the underlying muscles and help diminish the appearance of the deeper wrinkles caused by your everyday facial expressions.
Although the term Botox is commonly used to describe all cosmetic injectables made with botulinum toxin, there are several different products available, each with varying formulations, potencies, and approved dosages.
Dr. Biondi and her team offer only the safest, purest, and most effective products, including:
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved for use to help improve the appearance of angry 11s, which are the deep furrows between your eyebrows, and crow's-feet, which are the tiny smile lines at the corners of your eyes.
This advanced Botox product is used to help diminish the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. It's typically administered at five precise points between and above your eyebrows for natural-looking results.
Botox is the No. 1 cosmetic injectable because it delivers immediate results — most patients begin to see smoother skin within 24-48 hours. It also carries few risks or side effects, and requires little to no recovery time.
Because Botox results typically last anywhere between three to six months, you’ll need regular treatments to maintain your new, younger-looking skin.
If you’re looking for a safe, effective, nonsurgical way to temporarily reverse age-related facial deflation and smooth out wrinkles, dermal fillers can help.
Dermal fillers are minimally invasive cosmetic injectables made with collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other beneficial substances that help revitalize facial skin and add facial volume.
They can be used to reduce the appearance of deep lines around your eyes, brow, or mouth, change the contour of your jawline, subtly flesh out your cheeks, or even enhance your lips.
With immediate results, few risks or side effects, and little or no downtime, it’s not surprising that dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments.
Victoria Biondi, MD offers top-line dermal filler products by Restylane®. This advanced collection of hyaluronic acid fillers is designed to restore facial volume and correct moderate to severe wrinkles to create a fuller face with smoother, more youthful looking skin.
