Juvéderm vs. Botox

Juvéderm vs. Botox
   
As you age, wrinkles and fine lines are an inevitable part of the process. Even when you’re not tired, you look tired. And, you certainly don’t feel as beautiful as you did in your early 20s. These feelings can have a significant impact on your self-esteem, especially when wrinkles start to appear far before you think they should. So, if you are looking for a self-esteem boost and a way to diminish those wrinkles and fine lines, you have probably read about Juvéderm and Botox. Stuck trying to choose between the two? Let’s go through the benefits for each one to help you better determine which is best suited for you and your goals! Relaxers Versus Fillers Botox is a purified protein that works by relaxing muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, folds and fine lines. Botox is a great tool to reverse the unfortunate side effects of aging. Many patients use Botox as a preventative measure to help avoid wrinkles from appearing. Juvéderm facial fillers are sterile gels made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar found in the skin. Juvéderm fills in the grooves and lines throughout the face which causes your skin to smooth out! Types of Wrinkles While there are benefits to both Botox and Juvéderm, each one has different wrinkles they target. For instance, Juvéderm is excellent for wrinkles that are present when your face is resting. While Botox is the perfect choice for wrinkles that appear when your face is moving. So, if your wrinkles and fine lines appear when your face is stagnant, Juvéderm may be the best choice for you! But, if you see those aging side effects when you laugh or smile, perhaps Botox is the route you should choose. Results from Botox & Juvederm Each treatment should have results that are noticeable within a few days following your session. All results have a natural appearance and are safely injected into the skin and absorbed by your body over time. Therefore, results are no permanent and further treatment will be needed. Botox can last for about three months to a year, while Juvéderm results may last a year, dependent on the concentration of hyaluronic acid.
