How to Decide Between a Botox or Juvederm Treatment

Are you looking for a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that will help instantly rejuvenate your appearance? Here’s everything you need to know about Botox vs Juvederm, and how to decide which injectable is right for you.

Today, more and more patients are seeking out non-surgical anti-aging skin treatments such as Botox or Juvederm because they offer an effective, less-invasive option for individuals wanting to look younger and fresher, without any of the surgical downtime.

In fact, injectables such as Botox and Juvederm are highly preferred because:

  • They are more cost-effective than surgeries such as facelifts.
  • You can return to your usual activities almost immediately after the treatment.
  • There are no surgical risks
  • The side effects are temporary and minimal
  • They can be customized to suit your specific aesthetic needs

Botox vs Juvederm: Which Skin Treatment is Right For You?

Botox and Juvederm are two of the most popular injectable treatments today, and this is well deserved. Both procedures are able to quickly reverse signs of aging, while being fast, relatively painless, and requiring little to no recovery period.

However, while these are both ideal anti-aging skin treatments, they differ widely in what concerns they can address, as well as how they work.

How They Work

Botox: This injectable works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles which cause wrinkles. When injected into the treatment area, Botox blocks neuron signals to the muscle, allowing you to conduct facial expressions without developing any unwanted wrinkles or creases.

Juvederm: Juvederm is a dermal filler, and like other fillers, works by adding volume under the skin to fill in wrinkles and smoothen out your skin. In addition to addressing facial lines, Juvederm can also be used to fill out sunken or hollowing areas of your face due to age.

What They Address

Botox: Botox is often used for areas in the upper face, around the eyes, and forehead. It can be used to eradicate:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead creases

Juvederm: On the other hand, Juvederm is used to address wrinkles around the mouth and can be the treatment for you if you are worried about:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Thin lips
  • Hollow cheeks

How Long They Last

Botox typically lasts 3-4 months while Juvederm can last a little longer (6-9 months) depending on where it is injected. However, if patients undergo periodic ‘touch ups’, they can maintain the results of both treatments for longer periods.

Can the Treatments Be Reversed?

While both treatments are temporary, there is a difference when it comes to reversibility. With Botox, a reverse is not possible, so patients must wait for the effects of their treatment to fade. However with Juvederm, the results can be reversed if need be by using hyaluronidase if needed.

Tip: Either way, it is always recommended that you seek out the services of an experienced injector to avoid the need for changing your results, or more importantly, dangerous side effects.
