If you have been searching for ways to improve your skin, whether it is to reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines between the brows, or add volume to any facial fold, you may have come across BOTOX and JUVEDERM as injectable non-surgical solutions.
Difference Between BOTOX & JUVEDERM
At their core both BOTOX and JUVEDERM are two possible ways to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and facial lines. However, they each go about their intended outcome in different ways.
BOTOX gets injected beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity, which typically causes frown lines between the brows and the laugh lines around the eyes (crow’s feet).
JUVEDERM, on the other hand, gets injected into the skin to temporarily smooth the wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
What is BOTOX?
Botox is essentially a neurotoxin that is derived from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in the natural environment where it is largely inactive and non-toxic. Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscle which causes wrinkles.
Cosmetic Uses of BOTOX
You may have heard of groups of people getting together and having “BOTOX parties” where injections are performed by medical professionals to adults that have moderate to severe wrinkles and facial lines. The aesthetic uses of BOTOX are commonly known, and BOTOX is widely used by scores of celebrities. However, BOTOX is also used for certain medical conditions such as overactive bladder, hemifacial spasm, and blepharospasm (eyelid spasm).

What is JUVEDERM?
JUVEDERM is a non-surgical facial filler that is approved by the FDA for injection into the outer layer of the skin for the correcting of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (commonly known as laugh lines). For many, JUVEDERM is an excellent solution that adds volume to the skin giving it a more youthful appearance. JUVEDERM is a bit different than other facial or dermal fillers, as their manufacturing process uses HYLACROSS™ technology to provide a high concentration of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid.
