There are over-the-counter skin-care products like Simply Venom Day and Night Cream ($59-$69, simplyvenom.com) that help improve the look of skin. While they don’t work exactly like a neuromodulator, nor do they provide the same effect, they can help to lessen the look of some lines and wrinkles with time.
From one doctor to another, Dr. Andrew Ordon of the Doctors says, "this is a precision calibrated skincare line developed by anesthesiologists. Created in search of finding a safe alternative to medical grade injectables, which we love to use!"

Dolores Catania of The Real Housewives of New Jersey says, "this one is a MUST!" Created by anesthesiologists with an age-fighting active ingredient inspired by venom: SYNOX-MD. Dolores disclosed that her,"secret weapon for the holidays has been Simply Venom!"
There’s something about the rich texture of this peptide and squalane cream that says, “You sleep. We’ll take it from here.” Maybe because it was created by two anesthesiologists…?
Simply Venom: Two Anesthesiologists’Answer to Skin Care
By Rachel Strugatz
Simply Venom, a skin-care line created by anesthesiologists Dr. Monica Lilore and Dr. Milija Milic.
Dr. Monica Lilore and Dr. Milija Milic have taken their combined 35 years as anesthesiologists and developed the new skin-care line Simply Venom.
The collection, which quietly went on sale this week on simplyvenom.com and hsn.com, is comprised of two products that reportedly stave off the need for injectables, according to its co-founders.
“We’re using our experience with what we do every day, which is using muscle relaxants. The muscles working on the face affect the aging process and wrinkling, and by manipulating that, we can mimic the effects of injectables, but topically,” Milic said of the Simply Venom Day Cream and the Simply Venom Night Cream, which retail for $59 and $69, respectively.
Simply Venom contains SYNOX-MD, a proprietary complex of active peptides and purified yeast ferment delivery system that mirrors the way muscle relaxants work in anesthesia. He said that the topical formula, when used morning and night, works to decrease the appearance of wrinkles, boost collagen production and tighten the face. Clinical trials showed that facial wrinkles decreased by 52 percent and collagen was boosted by 76 percent after 28 days of usage.
It’s also the latest project that Jean Zimmerman, the beauty veteran who spent nearly three decades at Chanel as executive vice president of sales and marketing for fragrance and beauty, has a hand in.
“I was intrigued by the anesthesiologists’ development and the concept of a more potent surface antiwrinkle product,” Zimmerman said. She is both an adviser and an investor in the company.
Beyond their anesthesiologist’s point of view, the cofounders said two other things set this product apart. The first is that all ingredients used are included in their clinically recommended level, and the second is that the name and concentration of each ingredient is clearly listed on the bottle and packaging.
Lilore and Milic maintained that although no venom is used to formulate the cream, the desired results mimic that of snake venom. The duo spent two-and-a-half years developing the synthetic peptide found in Simply Venom.
“The reality is, our muscle relaxants work the same way that a peptide found in the venom of a snake works. Even though we’re using muscle relaxants every day, and not using venom, they work similarly in structure and function [to venom],” Dr. Lilore said.
There’s not a lot I wouldn’t do in the name of beauty… I’ve tried snail slime and growth factors derived from foreskin in an effort to reverse visible signs of time (but I do draw the line at placenta). I also get botulinum toxin (i.e. Botox) injected into my face regularly, so obviously products formulated with synthetic ingredients designed to mimic the muscle-relaxing effects of snake venom barely made me blink an eye—especially when they landed on my desk at about the same time my aforementioned Botox began to wear off.
Called Simply Venom, these day and night creams were created by two anesthesiologists who obviously know a thing or two about muscle relaxants. Fascinated by the power of the Temple Viper snake’s venom, the duo set out to create a synthetic way to mimic the effects of this venom merely by applying it to the skin. And wouldn’t you know, they did it—and then combined their muscle-relaxing peptide with other advanced ingredients that boost collagen production, hydrate the skin, restore elasticity and enhance the penetration of these innovative actives. The result: A 58% reduction in wrinkles and 76% increase in collagen after 28 days (according to one clinical study).
No, your face won’t be frozen from using these creams but you will notice improvement in fine lines and wrinkles. Offering both instant and long-term results thanks to wrinkle-plumping hydration and cumulative effects that begin to show after the first few weeks, I started using Simply Venom at the perfect time. The furrows on my forehead are definitely taking longer to become more pronounced, so much so that I haven’t scheduled my next Botox appointment yet.
For those of you who are concerned about safety, both of these formulations are free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, dyes and gluten—and I repeat: There is no actual snake venom! And for those of you who are thinking this sounds more like “snake oil,” try Simply Venom and you’ll stand corrected.

Better Than Botox? Simply Venom Strikes the Market You heard it here first: The hottest new anti-aging skincare is made with ingredients that mimic snake venom.By Susan Brierly Bush | August 9, 2016
Simply Venom contains no actual snake venom, but replicates its ingredients. That’s right. The latest in non-invasive, collagen-forming skin care agents is formulated with synthetic ingredients that copy muscle-relaxing viper venom.
This intriguing topical product, just hitting the market now, was developed by anesthesiologists Dr. Monica Lilore and Dr. Milija Milic who share 35+ years of medical expertise. Since the duo is skilled in the use of muscle relaxants, they saw a need for a non-invasive, skin-tightening solution that contains no fragrance, paraben, gluten or dye and is cruelty-free. (Actual snake venom is not among the product’s ingredients.)
Intrigued by the power of the Temple Viper snake’s venom, legendary for stilling the movement of its victim’s muscles, the doctors experimented with synthetic ingredients that would safely replicate the effect in a topical application. Clever, right? After collaborating with a homeopathic compounding pharmacist, their research and experimentation led to the launch of Simply Venom Skincare.
Lilore and Milic believe that their day cream and night cream, both made in the U.S.A., can decrease facial wrinkles and mimic the effects of medical-grade injectables like Botox and dermal fillers. In fact, they claim that the ingredients in Simply Venom have been clinically proven to decrease facial wrinkles by 52% after 28 days of application and boost collagen by up to 76% without a single injection. (I haven’t tried it yet, but the product is sitting right here on my desk and I plan to give it a whirl.)
“With so much mystery surrounding actual concentrations of active ingredients in current products on the market and realizing the complexity, expense and risks associated with many cosmetic facial procedures, we knew we had an opportunity to create something truly remarkable that delivers real results,” say Lilore and Milic. “Often, consumers have no clue what the ingredients are in the products they use, what percentage of active ingredients make the product effective, and if the product will really deliver. We are changing that by providing the active and key ingredients at the clinically recommended levels, revealing it all up front and listing them on the front of our packaging.”
The doctors recommend two pumps of day cream to a cleansed face and décolleté in the morning and two pumps of night cream before bed. Simply Venom Day Cream retails for $59.00/30ML and Simply Venom Night Cream goes for $69.00/30ML at SimplyVenom.com. (Although this online-only product isn’t in New Jersey stores yet, word has it that several big retailers are keenly interested in this most unusual product.)
If you want the effects of professional grade products without the needle try this line from Simply Venom. It mimics the effects in a topical application. I have heard so many great things about these products, I was excited to use them.

Okay, yes, I know this is expensive, but hear me out because it’s awesome. If you’re concerned about aging, you’ll want to use this product. Starting an anti-aging routine should actually be done much earlier than thought, since it’s more about prevention these creams are the best. They are super moisturizing and leave your skin looking and feeling amazing. I promise they’re worth the price if you can swing it.
