Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma … which one is for me?!

Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma

botox and juvederm

….Maybe both since they work differently. Botox is a type of purified botulinum protein and it is the most well known name brand but there are others, such as Dysport. They have been used cosmetically and safely for over 20 years. These products work by preventing a muscle from contracting and thus preventing wrinkling of the skin. The botulinum proteins are most commonly used to prevent frown lines between the eyebrows (commonly called the “11’s”) but are used in many other areas of the face such as, the forehead lines, the crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes and for an aesthetically pleasing, chemical brow lift. If used early enough, they can prevent the lines from ever forming!

You also lose fat and volume in your face as you age.  Look at a picture of yourself from when you were in your early 20s.  Now, your cheeks may not be as full, your temples may be more sunken in, your lips thinner, the deep lines around our nose and mouth more pronounced, or dark shadows may have appeared beneath your eyes giving a tired appearance.  Fillers, like, Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma are used to treat these concerns.  Fillers restore the facial volume and fullness found in youth.

Both Botox and the fillers can be administered separately and or together. Come in today for a free consult to see which option of facial rejuvenation would be best for you.
