What is the Difference Between Botox and Juvederm?
If you’d like to get rid of wrinkles but don’t like the idea of surgery, Botox and Juvederm are two treatments you should consider. They are both anti-aging injectables that can help you restore the fountain of youth without needles, anesthesia, or extensive downtime. When we introduce Botox and Juvederm to patients, they often wonder how these two treatments differ. Keep reading to find out.
Botox works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles as they contract. As soon as one of our expert providers injects Botox, the formula will block neuron signals to your muscles. This will allow you to smile, laugh, and frown without worrying about wrinkles popping up.
Botox can leave you with three to four months of anti-aging benefits. You are welcome to visit our office for maintenance treatments any time the results begin to fade.
Juvederm adds temporary volume under the skin. It will soften fine lines and wrinkles while adding volume to sunken or hollow areas. Essentially, the goal of Juvederm is to restore the volume loss that naturally appears with aging.
If you’re bothered by lines and wrinkles around your mouth, such as nasolabial folds (lines that extend from the corners of your nose to the outer corner of your mouth) and marionette lines (vertical lines from the corners of your mouth down to your chin), Juvederm may be the ultimate solution. Juvederm results usually last anywhere from twelve to twenty-four months.
Is it Safe to Get Botox and Juvederm?
Since Botox and Juvederm treat different aging concerns, they can be used at the same time. In fact, many patients receive them simultaneously for dramatic anti-aging results. While it may be more expensive to get Botox and Juvederm at once, you’ll likely find the investment to be well worth it.
Renew MD is great at scheduling appointments, they got me in right away. I was a little nervous for my first Botox procedure but Lauren, the medical assistant, was very helpful & gentle. She explained everything to me and made me feel very comfortable. I have now scheduled more appointments for other procedures and don’t plan on going anywhere else expect Renew MD!
