Juvéderm vs. Botox – Which Filler is Suitable For You?

December 7th, 2018|

Botox and Juvéderm are both gel fillers mainly used to treat wrinkles. Although they have similar uses, they contain vastly different ingredients and each target specific areas of your face. Keep reading to find out which filler is most suitable for your needs!

Uses and Benefits of Juvéderm

Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, which is used to rejuvenate your skin, creates volume in different areas of your face and plumps up your lips. The smooth consistency of Juvéderm is recognized for providing clients with a more natural look. This is a non-surgical procedure, which can be performed in 15-60 minutes with minimal recovery time. Results from this surgery have been positive, can sometimes be seen instantly and will last a duration of 1-2 years.

Juvéderm targets the lips and mouth area, lip lines and wrinkles, lines outlining your nose and mouth and adds volume to your cheeks and lips.

Uses and Benefits of Botox

Botox contains botulinum toxin A, which also corrects your creases and relaxes and stills the muscles in your face. It blocks signals from the nerves to muscles and prevents the muscles from contracting, allowing your wrinkles to relax and soften. Similar to Juvéderm, Botox is a quick procedure, however, the more skin you want treated, the longer each session will take. Results may take approximately a week to show and generally, they will last between 3-4 months.

Botox targets vertical lines between the eyebrows, wrinkles around the eyes, eyelid twitching, crossed eyes, excessive sweating, muscle spasticity, migraines and incontinence.

Both injectables provide long-term benefits that will allow you to feel more confident and comfortable in your skin. Call us to find out more information about this treatment!
