Botox vs Juvéderm

Wrinkles are an effect of aging that most want removed from their face. Because of this, we may jump too quickly at a treatment before we know if it’s the best for our area of concern. Different wrinkle treatments focus on specific areas of the face and have better results when applied to that particular area. Additionally, these different treatments may be treating the same overall problem of aging, but they are doing so using different methods.  

Botox and Juvéderm are prime examples of this. Both are anti-aging injectables designed to reduce wrinkles on the face. However, the specific areas they best treat and the way their products work are different. Exploring both products, understanding the areas they treat and learning how they treat them can help you decide which will smooth your wrinkles the best. Read on to learn everything you need to know when comparing Botox vs Juvéderm.
