Botox vs. Juvederm: What's The Difference?

Wrinkles are inevitably apart of the aging process. But that doesn’t mean you can’t disguise a few fine lines here and there. But which treatment do you choose — Botox or Juvederm? Keep reading to learn the differences and similarities between the two.

Relaxer or Filler?

Botox is a purified protein that relaxes the muscles that cause your wrinkles, fine lines, and folds. It’s great for wrinkles that are already apparent on your skin and for younger patients who use it as a preventative measure.

Juvederm are fillers made from hyaluronic acid. It fills in the lines, masking any wrinkles and smoothing out your skin.

Dynamic Wrinkles or Static Wrinkles?

Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles that are otherwise known as “expression lines.” As the targeted muscles are paralyzed, it will relax and smooth the wrinkles out.

Juvederm fills in lines and static wrinkles — and results can be seen immediately.

How Long Does it Take?

Both treatments show results fairly quickly. With Botox, you can see results anywhere between 3 months and a year. With Juvederm treatments, you may be able to notice a difference right away.

Is it Safe?

Both treatments are FDA-approved and are very safe. If you have sensitive skin you may see some puffiness or redness, but that should go away in time.
