Wrinkles and fine lines are inevitable as part of the aging process. But they make us look so tired and far less attractive than when we were younger. And this can potentially ruin your self-image and esteem, especially when the aging signs occur prematurely. For fast results, Botox® and Juvederm® treatments are touted as the best hot tickets in aesthetics today. They can reverse facial aging signs leaving you looking naturally younger and attractive. 


Botox® vs. Juvederm®

When you wish to improve your looks without undergoing cosmetic surgery, then FDA approved Botox and Juvederm offer perfectly effective and widely proven anti-aging treatments. But, it is important to know that they operate on totally different principles and each work on different types of wrinkles.


How does Botox work?

Botox works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles that cause persistent lines and wrinkles as they contract. When injected into the targeted muscle, Botox blocks neuron signals to the muscle allowing patients to conduct various facial expressions (smile, frown, etc.) without the unwanted wrinkles and creases.

Botox is mainly used for cosmetic purposes in the upper face, around the eyes and forehead. It is used to eradicate wrinkles that stem from repeated facial expressions like frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead creases.

How long before I see results?

While every patient is a unique case, most of our patients see results from Botox within 3-5 days with full results approximately 2 weeks after the procedure.


How does Juvederm work?

Juvederm, like other dermal fillers, adds temporary volume under the skin in order to fill in wrinkles and add volume to plump the skin. In addition to addressing creases and wrinkles, Juvederm can also address sunken or hollowing areas of the face stemming from volume loss.

Juvederm is primarily used to correct lines and wrinkles around the mouth, including nasolabial folds (lines that extend from the corners of the nose to the outer corner of the mouth) and marionette lines (vertical lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin).

How long before I see results?

Every patient is different, but typically full results can be seen in approximately 2 weeks. Also, dermal fillers such as Juvederm typically last anywhere from 1-2 years.
