If you are looking for a minimally invasive, effective treatment to turn back the hands of time, you have plenty of options. Among the most preferred options involve Botox and Juvederm. While the two are quite similar when resolving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, there are clear differences between the treatments. Dr. Sarah Pitarra has received advanced training in the anatomy of the face to offer both Botox and Juvederm in Corpus Christi. To help you make the best choice for your individual desires, she has the information you need about the treatments.

Benefit from Juvederm

Juvederm is a cosmetic filler that is most often used to resolve lines around the mouth, such as those that extend from the nose to the corner of the mouth. The simple treatment softens the harsh appearance of the lines using hyaluronic acids. These acids are a protein found within our body’s naturally as part of the cell walls. Therefore, it is a safe and natural option to revitalize a youthful appearance.

Juvederm is thinner than other types of fillers so there is less risk for bruising and swelling from the injections. The risks of the injections are minimal, making it a preferred choice among patients. In some cases, a lump may develop at the injection site, but the body will naturally absorb the enzyme to resolve the issue. Using the simple procedure, you can expect to see results in as little as one or two appointment with results that can last as long as nine months.

Benefit from Botox

Botox is one of the most widely known injections used to resolve fine lines and wrinkles. Most often, it is used to treat wrinkles and lines of the forehead and around the eyes. It is made from a diluted form of botulism toxin, which is injected into the muscles of the area being treated. The treatment will soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles and can be used to treat multiple areas at once.

Botox can also be used for medical purposes as well, such as to stop sporadic motions of the muscles. Essentially, the muscles are rendered unconscious, which can provide relief for certain conditions that cause chronic pain.

Botox is proven extremely effective and only takes a few minutes to complete the treatment. When compared to similar procedures, Botox does tend to cost more. In addition, treatment must be ongoing as results last three to four months on average. As with most dermal fillers and injections, there is a slight risk for bruising and swelling, which dissipates within a few days.

Restore Your Youth

If your confidence is starting to decrease due to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you can restore a youthful appearance with these simple cosmetic treatments. You will look younger without undergoing a surgical procedure. Your results will last for several months so you will love the face looking back at you in the mirror.
