Combining Juvederm Ultra and Botox for Optimum Results

Palm Harbor Medical Spa

Dermal fillers and Botox have been the gold standard for adding volume and reducing wrinkles for over a   decade, but have you considered using the two together? Combining Juvederm Ultra and Botox in one treatment session can give you some excellent results that you can’t achieve with one or the other alone.

What Juvederm Ultra Does 

Juvederm Ultra is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is appropriate for use in the cheeks, mouth, and lips. The dermal filler smooths out fine lines and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds (laugh or frown lines) and the lips and mouth. While the dermal filler plumps the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in these areas, it does not prevent the lines and wrinkles from coming back but does help build collagen.  Results may vary but typically lasts for about a year.   Read More

Similarities

This active ingredient relaxes the facial muscles that make repetitive folds of the skin, which in turn causes lines and wrinkles. By relaxing these muscles, the lines and wrinkles have an opportunity to heal themselves and become much less noticeable. The results of all three products are about the same, lasting about six months. Read More
