The Difference Between BOTOX and Juvéderm
BOTOX Cosmetic and Juvéderm Collection fillers are both effective for softening wrinkles and giving your face a more youthful look. But what’s the difference between these minimally invasive injectable products? BOTOX is used for relaxing the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, while dermal fillers are used to add skin volume and improve the appearance of static wrinkles.
BOTOX Cosmetic for Dynamic Wrinkles
BOTOX and other botulinum toxin products effectively treat lines and wrinkles caused by the repetitive movement of facial muscles. Over the years, facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, laughing and squinting can lead to wrinkles that remain even when your face is relaxed. Injections of botulinum toxin temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines by reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes dynamic wrinkles.
Juvéderm Fillers for Static Wrinkles
The Juvéderm Collection of Fillers contain a modified form of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in your skin that helps to keep it plump and hydrated. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers temporarily replenish lost skin volume and smooth static wrinkles such as parentheses lines and vertical lip lines. The Juvéderm Collection contains five different formulations, which not only refine the look of wrinkles but are also used to plump the lips and add volume to the cheeks and chin.
