BOTOX® vs. Juvederm® for Younger Looking Skin
Do you dream of soft, smooth, beautiful skin? You’re not alone. Thousands of people have turned to skin rejuvenation treatments like BOTOX® and Juvederm® to transform the appearance of their skin and achieve a more youthful look. While both of these cosmetic injections help produce younger looking skin, there is a notable difference in how the treatments accomplish this end goal. Continue reading below to learn the key difference between BOTOX® and Juvederm® and discover the advantages of skin rejuvenation treatments at Palos Verdes Aesthetics.
What is the Difference Between BOTOX® & Juvederm®?
The most basic difference between BOTOX® and Juvederm® relates to how they work. There are various types of facial injections, all of which benefit the skin in some way. Both BOTOX® and Juvederm® are injected into the skin; however, BOTOX® is a type of neuromodulator, whereas Juvederm® is a type of filler. What does this mean?
help replace lost volume in the skin to lift and soften it. They are especially effective for areas such as the cheeks, smile, and under the eyes. Whether due to sun damage or lost volume, wrinkles and fine lines are visible when there is a depression on the surface skin. Fillers are used to “fill” those depressions, pushing the skin back up to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and provide a more voluminous and firm look.
help relax the muscles in and around the face and neck to help combat the signs of aging—most specifically wrinkles and fine lines. When certain facial movements like frowning or squinting are performed repeatedly, the facial muscles contract, which causes lines and wrinkles to form on the surface of the skin. When neuromodulators are injected into the muscle, the nerve is blocked from sending a message to the brain to contract the muscle, resulting in no muscle contraction and no surface wrinkles.
Benefits of Skin Rejuvenation
Aging, sun damage, and many other factors can affect the skin’s appearance. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that provide the firm, smooth suppleness that we see in babies and children. As we age, these proteins can diminish in production and be influenced by outside factors. This is where skin rejuvenation comes in. Treatments like BOTOX® and Juvederm® offer the following incredible advantages:
- They are minimally invasive
- The procedures are quick and comfortable
- Results are fast and effective
- Treated skin has a natural look
- Injections stimulate collagen production
- Works for deep wrinkles and lines
- They restore confidence and a younger looking face
