Botox & Juvederm Q&A
What is Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin that, when injected into the facial muscles, relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. Besides reversing signs of aging, Botox can be a preventive measure for wrinkles that appear when smiling, laughing, or frowning.
Lines and wrinkles Botox is effective on include:
- Forehead lines
- Between the brow lines or furrows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
Botox works quickly, and the effects can be seen within days of receiving treatment. Botox can last an average of 3-4 months. Patients who receive Botox report little to no pain during the process and none afterward.
Botox is FDA-approved and considered a safe anti-wrinkle treatment option. Dr. Wyatt has extensive training and experience in providing Botox treatments to achieve natural-looking results.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally in the skin. Juvéderm is most effective on wrinkles appearing around the nose and mouth when at rest and targets lost volume in the face.
Juvéderm can address volume loss and wrinkles in the following areas.
- Around the mouth
The length of time Juvéderm dermal fillers last depends on the treatment area. Most treatments last between nine months to a year.
Juvéderm is a reliable treatment option and has FDA-approval. At Metairie Village Dentistry, Dr. Wyatt can assist patients who are seeking Juvéderm to diminish the signs of aging.
Should I use Botox and Juvéderm?
Botox and Juvéderm are both treatment options for those looking to improve their appearance and lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. However, there are key differences to consider.
Botox is most effective for wrinkles that appear when moving facial muscles. Juvéderm is best for wrinkles that appear when facial muscles are at rest. The effects of Botox are most noticeable after a few days and disappear sooner, while Juvéderm is noticeable right away and tends to last longer.
Both procedures can be completed rather quickly and without discomfort. While some side effects may occur, they are rare for both treatments.
