Not only is the aging process inevitable but it comes with wrinkles and fine lines which makes the face to look droopy and tired. This can sometimes have an impact on your image and confidence particularly if the aging process has begun earlier than usual. Thanks to juvederm and botox treatments the aging signs can be reversed leaving you looking naturally young and beautiful.
Both juvederm and botox are non-invasive injectable treatments which are similar and treat the same thing but have different active ingredients, results and timeline. In order to know which one is right for you we have to compare them.
Juvederm facial filler is a sterile gel made from hyaluronic acid. It gets rid of wrinkles by filling the lines and grooves on the skin.
Botox is purified protein which relaxes the muscles that cause folds, fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used to prevent the emergence of wrinkles by younger patients.
Juvederm is a volumizing solution which treats different types of wrinkles. It treats the lips lines and mouth area wrinkles, the lines outlining the nose and mouth and adds volume to the cheeks.
Botox stills and relaxes the muscles on the face. It is used to treat wrinkles around the eyes, eyelid twitching, vertical lines between the eyebrows, eye area wrinkles, crossed eyes, muscle spasticity, excessive sweating, incontinence and migraines.
The results of both treatments can be visible within a couple of days and the outcome are usually natural-looking results but this also depends on the specialist handling you. Since they are injectables they get absorbed by the body over time hence the results are not permanent.
Juvederm results depend on the concentration of the hyaluronic acid and they last for a year or more.
Botox results last between three months to one year at most.
There can be some minimal and temporary discomfort caused by both treatments. You might get some scarring and allergic reactions from juvederm and droopy skin and headaches from botox. Most risks and side effects are usually due to sensitive skin and poor application by unqualified personnel. Both juvederm and botox are fast treatments which take just a few minutes to complete but this depends on the area being treated.
The juvederm and botox treatments are not appropriate for persons under the age of 18 or pregnant women.
Juvederm is for adults who are 21 years and older and a person should not use juvederm if he/she I allergic to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine.
To use botox you must be between the ages of 18 and 65 years and you do not have any skin disorders or thick patches of skin on the treatment area.
Doth juvederm and botox are efficient treatments but juvederm works quicker and lasts way longer. Botox takes more days to show its effects and the results start declining after a few months. No matter which treatment you choose you will need follow up treatments because the results are not permanent.
