Which is Best, Botox or Juvéderm?

We all want to be ageless, and the good news is that there are ways of slowing down aging and looking years younger than we really are. But the challenge is to find the treatment that works best for you.

The AgeLess Center in Atlanta, Georgia offers a range of procedures including Botox, various dermal fillers, and a number of other non-surgical treatments for cosmetic enhancement. Two of the favorites with our loyal customers are Botox and Juvéderm. So which is best?

While a Botox procedure will cost you less than a Juvéderm procedure, each has its own advantages, and we know that our customers have their own preferences that lead them to chose one rather than the other.

So, which is best, Botox or Juvéderm?

Benefits of Botox

Used to provide temporary reduction of wrinkles, particularly those between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and those horrible crow’s feet below the outer corners of the eyes, Botox has been administered successfully worldwide since 2002.

It’s a prescription medicine that is non-surgical in nature. In essence, the way it works is that it blocks nerve impulses to the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines.

Botox is a procedure that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – initially as a treatment for eye-muscle disorders. It is made from a neuromuscular botulinum toxin and is totally safe.

Benefits of Juvéderm

Juvéderm is also used to temporarily reduce wrinkles, but is more often chosen as a procedure that will get rid of those nasty creases that form between the corners of your mouth and bottom of your nose, as well as the lines that form under the eyes.

Also non-surgical in nature, it is made from a substance that occurs naturally in human skin – hyaluronic acid – that adds volume to the skin and hydrates it. The newest Juvéderm formulation contains lidocaine, that is incredibly quick to take effect, ultimately reducing the need for anesthetics.

So Which Procedure Should You Choose, Botox or Juvéderm?

Both Botox and Juvéderm effectively reduce wrinkles using non-surgical procedures. Neither will achieve a permanent effect, but both achieve immediate results that AgeLess customers value.

Whether you want to try Botox or Juvéderm, the professional team at the AgeLess Center will answer any questions you have about the procedure and advise which we believe will be best for you.
