What is the Difference Between Botox and Juvederm?
Want to erase wrinkles and facial folds from your gorgeous visage, but aren’t quite ready to sign your name on the dotted line for cosmetic surgery?
If that’s the case, it’s time to introduce yourself to anti-aging injectables – the secret to getting the youthful look and glow you’ve been chasing after with those over-the-counter creams and serums. Injectable treatments can restore your youth and take years off your face without any pain or downtime.
Plus, results can be downright life-changing, with many clients indicating that their treatments make them feel more confident and comfortable in their skin again.
Two of the most popular injectable treatments today are Botox and Juvederm. But what exactly are the differences between Botox and Juvederm – and how do you know which one is right for you?
Botox temporarily relaxes facial muscles that lead to fine lines and wrinkles as they contract. When one of our expert providers injects Botox into your muscles, the formula will block neuron signals to your muscles so you can laugh, smile, frown, and make other facial expressions without any wrinkles.
Juvederm works by adding temporary volume under the skin. You can expect it to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas of your face that appear sunken or hollow due to the natural volume loss that comes with aging. The Juvederm line of fillers includes Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm UltraPlus, Juvederm Volume, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Vollure. Each of these is specifically formulated to address specific areas of concern. For example, Juvederm Vollbella is typically used for lip enhancement.
If you have 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 can improve their appearance. Dermal fillers, like Juvederm, can also correct and plump facial volume loss in and around the lips, under the eye, and nose regions.
With Juvederm, you can expect long-lasting results that last up to one year.
Adriana, RN was very gentle giving me the injections. She knew exactly what my prioritis were with what I wanted to achieve with botox, I also go for a monthly facial with her and my skin has never been better , very smooth, and the redness I used to have (rosacea ) has almost disappeared. I rarely use foundation any more. She is also very knowledgeable about the different available skin products at the med spa, and has given me some very valuable information for me to use at home.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
