The Difference Between Botox and Juvéderm

The Medspa and Wellness Center at ESG

In the past few years cosmetic injectables have gained enormous popularity. The two most popular cosmetic injections are Botox and dermal fillers Juvéderm. In 2015, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported 10 million procedures just for these two products.  

Botox and Juvéderm are cosmetic procedures using injections to combat the signs of aging while also rejuvenating the skin. They are both minimally invasive and provide anti-aging results. Although they are primarily used for the same reason, combating the aging process. 

What is Botox? 

Botox is a derived from a botulinum toxin, then synthesized to work as a muscle relaxer. It can be used for neurological disorders and to treat migraines. When it is injected into the jaw it can even help with teeth grinding. For cosmetic purposes, Botox injections are put directly into the muscles that cause wrinkles. The injection into the muscle results in wrinkle lines relaxing and fading. Botox is considered, a “lunch-time” procedure because it can be done in a short amount of time depending on how much is needed. After Botox is injected, results can be seen in as little as a week or two and it can last up to three to four months. 

What is Juvéderm? 

Juvéderm is a cosmetic treatment in the dermal-fillers family. Dermal fillers are used to restore facial fullness and contour the face. Juvéderm is a dermal filler with a base of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is already a compound produced in the body that helps with retaining moisture. Juvéderm offers a family of fillers. Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Vobella XC are two members of the Juvéderm family. Both types of Juvéderm are used to plump and fill areas of the face that have lost volume due to the natural aging process. The several types of filler contain different consistencies, some fillers are thicker such as Juvéderm Voluma which can provide beautiful cheeks and enhance the jaw line. Juvéderm XC is injected around the smile lines for wrinkle reduction between the nose and mouth. Juvéderm is often used to restore fullness in areas of the upper face, mid face and in the lips. Depending on the amount of filler used to achieve your desired look it could take 30 to 60 minutes for the procedure. Many times, both Botox and Juvéderm are used during the same office visit. Botox is injected into the muscle of the face that cause wrinkles, while Juvéderm injections restore fullness to the areas of the face that have lost their youthful look.
