Planning Your Injectables Treatment with Botox and Juvederm

Botox and Juvederm are two of the most popular aesthetic treatments available today. Botox targets facial wrinkles around the eyes and forehead by relaxing specific muscles to smooth out folds in the skin. Alternatively, Juvederm is a line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers with three formulations to address different types of facial volume loss and wrinkles in the mid-lower face. While each product is amazing on its own, many patients find that they’re even better together.  If you’re thinking about combining the forces of Botox and Juvederm to address facial wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging, schedule a consultation with Perfection Plastic Surgery & Skin Care. We’re ready to answer any questions you have about these popular injectables and design a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique aging concerns. 

Botox and Juvederm: Better Together

The signs of aging affect everyone a little differently. That’s why there’s so many products out there that all address similar aging skin concerns. It’s not unusual to see crow’s feet appear around the same time you notice those lines around your mouth become just a little more defined. Fortunately, Botox and Juvederm are complementary injectables that can yield dramatic results. Here’s a closer look at why they’re so great together. 

Botox and Juvederm are related brands.

Botox and Juvederm are both produced by Allergan, which is a leading brand in non-surgical aesthetic care. Not only can you count on their track record of safety and product compatibility, but you can expect great patient loyalty perks too. Juvederm and Botox will both earn you points under Allergan’s Allē loyalty program. Other treatments that will rack up points include DiamondGlow, CoolSculpting, and SkinMedica skin care products!

Each injectable can address a unique problem area.

Juvederm fillers are intended to add volume to specific areas of the face for improved contours along with fewer lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Voluma targets the cheek bones and chin with a visible lift and added volume in these areas. By restoring volume in the cheek bones and chin, you can also address sagging skin in the lower face, jawline, and upper neck. Alternatively, Juvederm Vollure fills in deeper lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). Juvederm Volbella is a lip filler that also smooths out perioral lines around the lips, so it is the perfect solution for thinning lips and vertical lip wrinkles.  While Juvederm fillers all work wonders for the lower face, Botox targets the lines and wrinkles that appear around the eyes and forehead. 11 lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines are all improved by Botox. 

You can get everything done in a single appointment.

In fact, you should get both Botox and Juvederm injections on the same day, at the same appointment. The reason is that both treatments will trigger changes throughout the face by recontouring and reshaping the facial tissues. When both are done at the same time, they work together to sculpt the face. In addition, your nurse injector will strike a delicate balance between the two products to yield your desired effects in treatment. 

What to Expect During Your Consultation

When you schedule a consultation for either Botox or Juvederm treatment in our office, we’ll take the time to discuss your full range of treatment options. So, if you would likely benefit from a combo of dermal fillers and Botox, we’ll work with you to customize the right treatment plan. Be prepared to share your desired treatment outcomes. Our nurse injectors can help you highlight your favorite features while minimizing any you aren’t so fond of. You will also want to be ready to discuss any known allergies you have as well as medications and supplements you’re currently using. 

What to Expect After Your Treatment

You’ll likely see the results of Juvederm fillers before the effects of Botox are noticeable. Your best results will be about 2 weeks after treatment. Some mild bruising, swelling, and redness may occur immediately after treatment, but you shouldn’t have many side effects to worry about. With ongoing treatment, you may need Botox refreshers more often than Juvederm. Botox typically lasts about 3 months, while Juvederm fillers can show results for up to 2 years.  Are you ready to discover how Botox and Juvederm can work better together?
