About Juvederm Filler
What are Fillers and Injectables?

What is the one thing that most of us want to do: stop the signs of aging from infringing on our faces. Wrinkles, sagging, and fine lines can make us lose confidence in our appearance. There are numerous treatments and procedures available to help you combat the signs of aging; many of them, however, can be pretty invasive, along the lines of cosmetic surgery. This is why the introduction of fillers and injectables has revolutionized the industry. Clients can take years off without enduring painful and costly medical procedures.

Enter: Juvederm and Botox. Both products are injectables given either by a dermatologist or aesthetician. Both serve to tighten the face, diminish the look of wrinkles, and ultimately make your complexion look younger and more rejuvenated. Even though given their intended use and purpose, the injectables are similar; they do contain different ingredients, not to mention, the results that you get with both Botox and Juvederm can vary in terms of how long those results last as well as the intensity of the results.

Juvéderm and Botox: What’s the Difference?

Both procedures can be done either by a dermatologist or a trained spa aesthetician. When considering whether to get an injectable or filler, there are a few things to consider, both in deciding whether this treatment is the right one for you and figuring out whether Botox or Juvederm is best for you.

Juvéderm

Unlike cosmetic surgery and more invasive procedures designed to take years off, Juvederm is noninvasive. The solution used contains a gel; this gel is made primarily from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has been known to work wonders when creating a smoother and more supple skin tone and texture. Juvederm is considered a volumizing product since it adds plumpness to the skin.

What areas are Juvederm significant for:

  • It can be used to plump the lips and add volume.
  • Many will get Juvederm injections to erase those “parentheses” that outline the nose and mouth.
  • It can also be great for cheeks.
  • In general, this filler can be used throughout areas on the face to diminish the look of wrinkles.
Botox

Botox is also a noninvasive process—meaning nonsurgical—and does very similar to what Juvederm does. In other words, it does help smooth out the skin and tighten otherwise sagging areas. Botox, however, is composed of different ingredients than Juvederm. Among the places that people will get Botox to treat include:

  • Those furrow lines between the eyebrows can make us look older.
  • Forehead wrinkles can also be addressed with Botox.
  • Any wrinkles around the eyes are good candidates for Botox treatment.
  • Some people will also get Botox to help treat excessive sweating issues.
  • It has even been used in the treatment of migraines.
What does a filler treatment involve?

Juvéderm and Botox are both pretty quick procedures. When the results are apparent: people note that with Juvederm injections, the results tend to be noticeable sooner than they are with Botox. Generally, with Juvederm, you can see results almost right away, whereas, with Botox, it will probably be at least 24 hours before you notice the difference in appearance.

When you go for your injectable session, you can expect the treatment itself to last anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour. The actual treatment length will depend on how many injections you will be receiving in a given session.

In both cases, the injections themselves will feel like tiny stings. Again though, this could vary depending on what area of your face you are having the treatment on. Some places can be more sensitive than others.

What results can I expect with dermal fillers?

What are the actual results that you can expect when getting dermal fillers? And what’s more, how long will the effects of the injections last? With Juvederm, clients say that they are noticing results lasting up to two years, though there is a decrease in the overall intensity of those results over time. Keep in mind, too, the formula itself of the injectable and the skill of the dermatologist or aesthetician will have an impact on the results. This is why it is so important to go to a trained professional with ample experience in dermal fillers for any such treatment of this type.

The part of the body you’re having treated will also impact how long the results last. For example, in many clients, lip treatments were seen to last up to a year. Another essential thing to note is that Botox results are generally not quite as long-lasting—with many clients citing that after 4-6 months, they notice the results of the injections start to fade.

Are you a good candidate for fillers and injectables?

If you have underlying health conditions or any concerns, you want to talk to your doctor before getting any dermal fillers or injectors. In a perfect world you should be in good overall health when getting dermal fillers. You should be over 18, and pregnant women are discouraged from getting these treatments. If you are allergic to either hyaluronic acid or lidocaine, if you are thinking about getting Juvederm, this is not the right treatment type for you.

If you have had any reaction to botulinum toxins, you want to avoid Botox as far as any relevant skin conditions that you may have; check with your dermatologist or doctor first before getting dermal fillers to ensure that this is a suitable procedure for you.

Are there side effects with dermal fillers?

Everyone wants to know before getting a dermal filler is whether or not they can expect any side effects from the procedure. As both Botox and Juvederm are noninvasive, the risks are relatively small; however, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind when going for this kind of treatment. Among some of the more common side effects that could occur are:

  • Pain at the site of injection
  • Slight swelling
  • In rare cases, a rash could form
  • Some soreness
  • Lumps or bumps at the injection site
  • Slight bruising and discoloration
  • Itching

While these are all mild and can happen in some cases, very rarely, there can be more severe side effects, and thus it is crucial to keep these in mind before your Botox or Juvederm appointment. Such reactions can include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Numbness
  • Scarring
  • Skin discoloration
  • Infection
  • Loss of blood
  • Muscle weakness
  • Headaches

Whether you opt for Botox or Juvederm (or perhaps some other type of dermal filler), you will be amazed at the results. And the great thing is, they do last for months if not years at a time. You can put a yellow light on the speed to slow down the signs of aging! It’s about helping you look younger and feel more confident about your appearance.
