Juvéderm® vs. BOTOX
Juvederm® and Botox may be the two most popular cosmetic treatments for smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. Both cosmetic treatments are FDA-approved to be administered by a medical professional. However, how they work and the concerns they treat are different.
Juvederm® is a filler gel infused with hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin to plump and smooth lines and wrinkles from underneath.
Juvederm® treats minor to severe wrinkles and folds in the skin, hollows under the eyes and in the cheeks, thinning lips, and lines around the mouth, and can be injected into the chin to create a stronger profile. Results may last up to two years.
On the other hand, Botox is a prescription drug that, when injected into the face, temporarily relaxes facial muscles. This process fades wrinkles by preventing muscle movements that cause them.
Botox mainly treats wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and mouth, on the forehead, and between the eyebrows. Botox doesn’t fill in hollowed-out areas of the face. Results last for about six months.
What Does Juvéderm® Treat?
Our Juvederm® products can treat a number of specific concerns. The following are some of the most common.
LOSS OF VOLUME IN CHEEKS
As we age, our skin loses moisture and elasticity, and we also lose subcutaneous fat—fat that sits below the surface of the skin and gives the face soft, youthful contours. These changes cause the skin to sit closer to a person’s bone structure, making the cheeks appear sunken or hollow and contributing to the development of wrinkles and jowls.
The Voluma XC formula is specially designed to restore volume to the face. These cosmetic injections replenish the soft barrier between bone and skin, giving cheeks a plump, youthful fullness.
Thin lips may be the result of an age-related decline in collagen production, or they may simply be genetic. In both cases, many individuals choose to treat thin or thinning lips because those with fuller lips tend to be perceived as younger.
Juvederm® Vollure XC, Volbella XC, and Ultra Plus XC can all add volume to thin lips. Vollure XC is a softer, slightly more natural-looking formula, while Ultra Plus XC is firmer and may last longer. Volbella XC is specifically for plumping sensitive areas, like the lips and surrounding skin. These treatments aren’t permanent but can be applied regularly to maintain a full and younger-looking smile.
Diminishing moisture and elasticity in the skin also creates creases where it moves the most—particularly around the eyes and mouth, where the skin crinkles when we smile. These curving lines can become more pronounced over time, creating parenthetical smile lines on either side of the mouth and nasolabial folds.
Both Juvederm® Volbella XC and Ultra Plus XC are specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of lines around the nose and mouth. The Volbella XC formula is best for deeper, etched lines, while Ultra Plus XC is effective for mild to moderate lines.
Much like smile lines, marionette lines result from a combination of repetitive facial movements and a loss of skin elasticity caused by a decline in collagen. These lines form parallel parentheses around the lower half of the mouth and chin and can be moderate or deeply etched into the skin.
Juvederm® Ultra XC lifts and smooths the skin around the nose and mouth, reducing or eliminating marionette lines. This cosmetic injectable is formulated particularly to address lines and wrinkles on the lower half of the face.
