Give Your Skin a Time Machine With These Two Cosmetic Treatments

Wrinkles shouldn’t have to be a necessary part of aging, and thanks to treatments like Juvederm and Botox, they don’t have to be. Juvederm and Botox use different methods to stop and reverse signs of aging from showing on the skin. You can use Botox and Juvederm separately or together to halt unwanted signs of aging and embrace youthful beauty in your appearance. Here’s what you need to know about these popular treatments.

Botox Stops One Root Cause of Wrinkles

Many of the wrinkles on your face, especially those along your forehead and brow, are caused by repeated muscle contractions. Every time you smile, laugh, or frown, your muscles contract and wrinkle your skin in specific places.

Those wrinkles eventually become permanent fixtures on your face, especially as you get older and your skin loses the collagen and elastin it needs to bounce back. Botox is a quick and effective treatment to eliminate those expression-based wrinkles.

Botox is injected around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead to relax the facial muscles and wipe away glabellar lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Results show within a few days and last as long as three or four months.

Juvederm Boosts the Skin with Youthful Volume

Juvederm is a popular line of dermal fillers that offers a specific injectable for just about every cosmetic purpose you can imagine. The carefully formulated hyaluronic acid fillers are able to restore lost volume to the cheeks, plump the lips, soften vertical lip lines, and erase lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and chin. New and improved Juvederm products even last months longer than before.

Use Juvederm and Botox Together For Lasting Results

Juvederm and Botox tackle wrinkles differently, which makes them complementary treatments capable of being used simultaneously for maximum wrinkle-busting results. Since Botox relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles to form and Juvederm plumps the skin to push out wrinkles, both treatments together can eliminate wrinkles altogether.

In addition, each product helps the other last longer. The rate at which Juvederm wears away is directly correlated to the amount of muscle movement that occurs in the area of injection, Botox can extend Juvederm’s lifespan by minimizing muscle movement and preserving the Juvederm’s potency.
