Botox is the most commonly sought cosmetic injectable, and for a good reason. Botox shots deliver small amounts of carefully formulated botulinum toxin that prevents the targeted muscles from contracting. It relaxes frown lines, forehead furrows, and other signs of aging.
Botox is FDA-approved for cosmetic and medical applications. In addition to smoothing wrinkles and creating a more youthful appearance, Botox is also a standard treatment option for issues like migraines, overactive bladder, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms.
Juvederm is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. It’s used to create plumpness in the targeted area, smoothing lines and wrinkles and providing a more youthful, rested appearance.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in your body, but its levels decrease as you age. Juvederm corrects those changes by delivering safe amounts of hyaluronic acid where more fullness is needed.
Juvederm is available in several formulations, making it a highly customizable cosmetic treatment option. The most common applications are to provide fullness in your lips or to smooth the appearance of smile lines that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
Juvederm injections provide natural-looking results that last 6-8 months in most patients.
