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.
What Botox Does
Botox is a neurotoxin that is used to relax the facial muscles of the target area, such as the forehead and crow’s feet. Botox prevents facial muscles from moving and creating the facial expressions that led to your fine lines and wrinkles. Botox typically lasts about four months, and may actually slow down the severity of lines as we age.
As you can see, Juvederm Ultra and Botox both have excellent effects for anti-aging, but they do very different things. When you combine these two treatments into one session, you get the best of both worlds and achieve results you couldn’t with just one or the other alone.
