Patients learn more about Juvéderm and Botox treatment in Alpharetta
A smile is more attractive when it is surrounded by youthful skin. As we age or if we encounter dental issues, we lose fullness in the face and the profile begins to morph. Lines and wrinkles appear. A sunken look in the cheeks and thinning lips may develop. Botox and Juvéderm are common procedures in Alpharetta for the treatment of lines and wrinkles.
Botox safely softens lines
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments. Offered by some dentists, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and medical spas, it is easily accessible. Botox is a neurotoxin that, when injected into the face, gently relaxes facial muscles. This causes lines to soften and skin to smooth out. Botox can be used to treat lines between the eyebrows, along the forehead, or at corners of the eyes. Although it is most commonly used in the upper half of the face, Botox can address lines around the mouth, as well.
Juvéderm adds volume and fullness
Juvéderm is an FDA approved injectable gel that adds volume, plumps the skin, and fills lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm uses hyaluronic acid to bring moisture, nutrients, and fullness to the skin giving patients long lasting results. Juvéderm can fill out parentheses or nasolabial folds around the mouth, add volume and lift at the cheekbones, augment lips, or soften vertical lines around the lips.
Points to remember
l Botox and Juvéderm are separate treatments but often complement one another.
l As Botox softens lines along the forehead, Juvéderm can fill wrinkles on the lower half of the face.
l Botox lasts three to six months. Juvéderm results last up to twelve months.
