What is the difference between BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®?

BOTOX® is a formulation containing botulinum toxin type-A. Botox is approved by the FDA for cosmetic usage and effectively paralyzes the small muscles of the face. Botox is used to reduce frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead.

JUVÉDERM® is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. JUVÉDERM® compensates for the loss of collagen and skin elasticity. JUVÉDERM® is a dermal fillers injected just beneath the skin to fill out and reduce small to medium lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® both fills out the volume of the face and attracts additional water to the area, maintaining a smoother, younger look.

Both BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM are effective anti-aging treatments which creates a younger appearance.
