Botox or Fillers? Which Treatment Is Right for Me?
Are you thinking about injectables? Fillers (like Juvederm) and Botox are both great options for rejuvenation and are especially suited to the lifestyles of busy men and women. With just a few minutes of treatment and no downtime afterwards, you can improve your appearance.
Although both treatments are injectable, Botox and fillers aren’t one and the same. Which one is right for you? Find out below.
Is Botox Right for Me?
Botox is consistently the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment in the U.S. It uses a highly purified protein (known as botulinum toxin A) to temporarily relax muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. It works beautifully on crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, etc. Treatment takes about 10 minutes from start to finish with no downtime and few, if any, side effects. Results start to appear in about a day and last 3-4 months.
Botox might be right for you if:
- You want to smooth expression wrinkles (like crow’s feet, frown lines, etc.)
- You need a quick and easy treatment option.
- You want a safe, effective treatment option.
- You want natural looking rejuvenation.
Are Dermal Fillers Right for Me?
Dermal fillers are another injectable treatment option. They consist of a synthetic filler that is injected into the skin to add volume, fill in wrinkles, etc. There are many different types of fillers available, but one of the best is Juvederm XC.
Juvederm is a long-lasting, smooth gel hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is highly biocompatible, so no allergy testing needed. Juvederm is well known for its smooth, beautiful results. In addition to filling in wrinkles it can restore moisture to the skin for a dewy, fresh complexion.
Juvederm might be right for you if:
- You want to smooth wrinkles, add volume, or rejuvenate the skin.
- You want a quick and easy treatment option.
- You want instant results with no downtime.
- Safety and effectiveness are a priority.
- You want natural looking results.
Dermal Filler or Botox – Why Not Try Both?
If you’re trying to choose between Botox and fillers, let me tell you a secret: You don’t have to choose, as you can use both. Botox and Juvederm are wonderfully complementary procedures, so much so that we even have a special name for it—the “Liquid Lift”. Used together, Botox and Juvederm can even out wrinkles, smooth lines, and provide full face rejuvenation. If you can’t choose one, consider trying both.
