As we get older, fine lines, wrinkles, and deep facial folds can become our worst enemy. While some early signs of aging can be combatted with at-home creams and serums, chances are you’ll need more substantial treatment to prevent wrinkles from worsening. More and more men and women are turning to injectables for wrinkle reduction because they’re able to see near-instant results with no downtime.
When it comes to minimizing wrinkles with injectables at Levy Dermatology, your options are virtually limitless. Gone are the days of a one-size-fits-all treatment option for everyone. These days, you’re able to get natural-looking results with procedures designed for your specific concerns. But, what’s best for you, Botox® or Juvéderm®?
How Do Injectables Work?
Both Botox® and Juvéderm® are injectables used to minimize lines and wrinkles throughout the face, but that’s about where the similarities end. Each injectable works in entirely different ways to smooth your wrinkles.
- Botox® is a neurotoxin that once injected, helps to stop nerve-muscle communication. The procedure is ideal for treating deep dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements.
- Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based filler that works to plump and hydrates the skin from within. This injectable is better suited for wrinkles that are a result of sun damage or lifestyle factors.
Treatments are done in-office and typically take just a few short minutes. There is no downtime associated with injectables so you can get back to your normal routine immediately.
