What are Botox and Juvederm treatments? Both procedures are performed in-office in just thirty minutes or less. Both types of treatment help minimize wrinkles without surgery and can bring back youthfulness and vitality to your face. Both methods are highly effective, and results are evident in no time at all!
What are the main differences in these procedures? The biggest difference is the area of the face the procedure improves and the way it improves those areas. Botox works on the upper face and Juvederm works on the mid/lower areas of the face. Botox and Juvederm can be used separately or together depending on the areas you’re looking to improve.
Botox works to minimize wrinkles by causing the muscles to relax and keeping them from contracting. This can preserve youthfulness in the face and help prevent permanent lines from wrinkles forming in the face.
Typically, Botox lasts from 3 to 6 months.
No, if you are unhappy with your Botox treatment, your skin will return to what it looked like prior to treatment within 3-6 months.
The upper face is most affected by Botox treatment including the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes.
In under 30 minutes, your Botox procedure will be complete. A fine needle is used to inject the muscles which will cause slight discomfort but only lasts for a short time.
Botox blocks signals from certain muscles to the nerves. This prevents the muscles from contracting and also relaxes the existing wrinkles.
The best way to explain Juvederm is that it works as a filler. Fat in the face continuously diminishes with age. This results in deeper lines around the mouth, flatter cheeks and an overall sagging appearance. Wrinkled lips are also a result. Juvederm restores the fat that was lost with the filler that it puts into the face. This procedure can restore youthfulness and help reverse the effects of aging.
On average, Juvederm is expected to last between 6-12 months.
The benefits of Juvederm can be seen right away! Juvederm is recommended for all skin complexion types, hydrates the skin and adds volume. This type of treatment is made of hyaluronic acid which can be found in our bodies.
Most patients are able to continue their daily tasks the day of treatment. Most others resume their daily activities the day following treatment.
Yes, it can! As long as the treated area isn’t massaged, regular makeup application is okay. Alcohol should not be applied to the face after treatment and if you are exposed to the sun it is recommended to wear sunscreen.
