Botox and Juvederm are both known as wrinkle reducers, but what is the difference between them? Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles it is injected into. It is these muscles that are responsible for aesthetic flaws like crow’s feet and brow furrows. The Botox injections allow these muscles to relax, which then allows the skin above these muscles to take on a smoother and softer appearance.
Juvederm does not paralyze muscles. Instead, it is designed to restore lost facial volume. A loss of facial volume is what causes folds and lines like nasal labial folds and smile lines to form. Juvederm fills in these folds and helps the skin to retain moisture so that it maintains a youthful appearance.
At Aura Laser Skin Care, we offer both Botox and Juvederm injections. You can even use both simultaneously for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Contact us today to see what these amazing products can do for your appearance.
