If you’ve been considering injectables to help your skin look great, you may have heard about Botox and Juvederm. They’re both great options, but which is right for you? Today, we’ll talk about the differences and benefits of each.
Botox reduces facial lines. It works by temporarily affecting muscle movements that cause those lines to appear. Your skin is left smooth and younger looking, which will leave you feeling confident. Botox is FDA approved for improving moderate to severe lines on your mouth, forehead, and near your eyes.
If you have crows-feet lines near your eyes, frown lines near your mouth, or lines on the forehead, Botox may be a good option for you. It’s affordable, starting at $12 per unit, and it’s a quick and safe treatment that takes about ten minutes. The results from your Botox treatments will last for about three to six months.
Juvéderm is a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers, each of which target different areas of your face. It’s the top selling collection in the US. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that our skin produces naturally that helps it maintain hydration. This keeps skin soft, moisturized, and plump, which helps fight lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm uses these properties to add volume and softness to your skin through injection therapy. Different formulas in the collection are specifically designed for the target area. The collection includes treatments for:
- Nose and mouth - lines or wrinkles
- Cheeks – for added volume
- Lips - Parentheses lines or for added volume
Our med spa professional will assess your individual needs to determine which treatment is right for you. Juvéderm treatments start at $500 per syringe. Treatment time varies by individual, and the results can last one to two years.
