Botox and Juvederm are both used to reduce and remove wrinkles, yet they perform in different ways and are best in individual specific regions of the face. The following information is important for considering if Botox or Juvederm is suitable for removing your wrinkles.
How does Botox remove wrinkles?
Botox is a muscle relaxer, so it loosens up the muscles under the skin. Botox does not specifically treat the wrinkle, it affects the nerves attached to the muscle. Once the muscle relaxes, the wrinkle region diminishes, and the skin appears younger. Botox affects the muscles under the skin and does not actually remove wrinkles. Botox will not fully smooth a deep wrinkle area. Treating a deep wrinkle could still leave a hint of a wrinkle line.
How does Juvederm remove wrinkles?
The FDA has approved Juvederm as a facial filler. It is applied under the skin, filling out areas that are missing volume, helping to instantly restore your skin by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is a naturally occurring water-binding molecule that fills the void in the skin to remove wrinkles. A Juvederm injection immediately smooths your facial contours, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
What is a Botox Treatment?
A Botox treatment involves a specialist injecting Botox into facial muscles utilizing a fine needle. The Botox hinders the nerve action of the muscle, which restricts the capacity of the muscle to move. This makes the wrinkles in the overlying skin continuously lessen and regularly vanish as the muscle compression that prompted the wrinkles relaxes.
What kinds of wrinkles would Botox be able to remove?
The primary impact of a Botox application for wrinkle removing is smoother skin, particularly on the brow. Botox treatments are successful in diminishing a few other types of wrinkles as well, for example, crow’s feet at the sides of your eyes and the grimace lines between your eyebrows. Unfortunately, Botox will not successfully removed laugh lines around your mouth. Laugh lines generally are deep static muscles and do not disappear with Botox. Since Botox restricts the underlying muscles, your facial expressions may be less expressive. Botox medications might be appropriate for your wrinkles and recall that Botox medicines won’t help the strength of your skin – it just lessens the presence of wrinkles.
Which types of Wrinkles does Juvederm remove?
“Smile lines” are the primary wrinkle lines lessened with Juvederm. While not approved by the FDA for this purpose, some places will inject into your lip area to instantly create fuller lips. Juvederm is also ideal for skin depressions, scars, wrinkles, and hollow areas on the face.
How long does Botox remove wrinkles?
The results of a Botox treatment last for around three to five months. To keep wrinkles away, you will need consistent treatments. Botox will permanently block the nerves cells connected with the muscle when it bonds. Yet new nerves connect to the muscle, so muscle movement resumes within a couple of months. When the muscle recovers movement, any wrinkle lines that were initially there will return.
How long will Juvederm remove wrinkles?
In most cases, Juvederm® lasts from 6 months to 1 year. There will be noticeable wrinkle improvement immediately following the treatment. While swelling at the injection site may cause some excessive plumping, after a few days, the swelling will go down.
Are there any worries for utilizing Botox?
If too much Botox is used or if Botox was inserted into the wrong muscle areas, it could result in a rigid appearance. For instance, injecting Botox into too many areas, could cause the muscles in your forehead to become immovable. These immovable muscles will freeze your expressions from your brow through your eyebrows. Injecting too much Botox in one spot, or not injecting it properly, could cause your forehead can drop, and you would look consistently angry. Injecting Botox too low near your eyebrow, may cause you to look like you have a droopy eye. All of these are reasons why you want a doctor to perform the Botox injections, and not someone with improper training.
Are there any concerns with using Juvederm?
Filling wrinkles with Juvederm is a very simple and safe procedure which provides immediate results, because Juvederm is produced from Hyaluronic acid, a fluid we produce naturally in our skin. Typical side effects include redness immediately after the injection. There may also be some soreness, swelling, or possible bruising at the injection site. Occasionally, after an injection, there may be slight bumps which is considered normal. Fortunately, these bumps typically spread out within a few days. Juvederm is still supple for about 24 hours allowing any bumps to be massage smooth after the procedure. In the event that you are unhappy with the procedure, injecting a retroactive agent can dissolve Juvederm.
