Botox and Juvederm for a Non-Surgical Facelift

If you are looking for ways to make your skin look younger and healthier without having a facelift, Botox and Juvederm treatments may be your best options. These two types of skin therapy are less invasive and do not require you to endure a long recovery period. Best of all, these treatments can often be completed quickly without a lot of pain.

Even though these two therapies are similar in how they are administered, there are a few fundamental differences you should know before proceeding with treatment. You may even elect to utilize both therapies for maximum results.

How Botox Works

Botox is a serum that is injected into facial skin by a licensed aesthetic professional to temporarily eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines and laugh lines. Botox is also often administered to the skin around the eyes to remove crow’s feet. The serum works by relaxing muscles while allowing the skin to appear smoother. You can receive Botox injections every three to six months for consistent results.

How Juvederm Works

This filler comes in gel form and can temporarily fill in facial creases and improve the skin’s buoyancy. Juvederm is also effective in eliminating the appearance of acne scars and can even be used to make the lips look fuller. Like Botox, Juvederm is injected into certain areas around the face by a licensed aesthetic professional and can often be administered quickly. Depending on the areas of the face where Juvederm is used, results typically last from six months to one year.

Botox and Juvederm can work wonders if you would like a safer and less-invasive way to look younger. For your safety, you should only be receiving treatment from a licensed aesthetic professional who has gone through all the necessary training.
