Botox vs. Juvederm
Fountain of Youth Med Spa in Dayton Ohio offers both Botox and Juvederm. These products work by completely different methods and for that reason are used for different purposes. Botox relaxes the muscles that pull wrinkles into the face. Juvederm fills the wrinkle. A knowledgable physician will know when one will be more effective to use than the other.*
Botox works very well for smile lines, frown lines, lines that appear when you look “puzzled”. Basically any lines that form when you contract the muscles of your face. These lines develop over time particularly around the eyes and mouth, between your eyebrows and on your forehead. Botox relaxes that muscles that cause these lines – making you appear younger and more wrinkle free.
Juvederm can complement the Botox procedure by filling in lines and wrinkles that develop as we age. These lines and wrinkles may exist regardless of whether we contract the facial muscles or not. In this case, these more permanent lines are better suited for “filling” then with relaxing the muscle. In this case, Juvederm works extremely well.
Our recommendation in any case is to seek the advice of an experience medical application specialist. Please come in for a free consultation before you embark on any such procedure.
Are the injections painful?
Didn’t your mom always say “It takes pains to be beautiful?” Well, rest assured that’s not entirely true. Yes there are needles, however they are extremely tiny. Botox injections are quite painless (at most a pinch).
