Juvéderm® or Botox®: Which Injectable Is Right for Me

The number of treatments for facial rejuvenation continues to grow. Patients now have multiple options for treating any condition thanks to injectables like Botox® and Juvéderm®, two treatments that can efficiently counter the signs of aging. However, Botox® and Juvéderm® target different concerns. For patients who are not familiar with these procedures, choosing between the two can be confusing. In this section, we’ll highlight the differences between Botox® and Juvéderm® to help patients pick the best treatment for their needs.


In recent years, Botox® has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. Along with its amazing results, it’s an incredibly simple treatment. If you’re concerned about increasingly visible wrinkles and facial lines caused by facial movements, Botox® could be the treatment for you. It temporarily relaxes facial muscles, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles that resulted from facial movement and expressions.

Botox® results typically show up 4-5 days after the treatment. Its effects can last up 3 to 6 months. Botox® can also be used in cases of migraine and excessive sweating. If you have the following concerns, you should consider a Botox® treatment:

  • Crows feet
  • Furrowed brow lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines
  • Lines and wrinkles caused by facial expression


Dermal fillers are also widely sought-out treatments. Juvéderm® is a dermal filler that restores a youthful look by adding volume to face. Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is administered underneath the skin through injections. It’s typically used to add volume to the cheeks and lips, which tend to droop and become thinner with age. It can also be used to eliminate “marionette” lines and nasolabial folds.

Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® target the signs of aging that appear in the lower two thirds of the face. It is the best option if you’re concerned about the appearance of deep creases in the face. The effect of Juvéderm® lasts for 6 months to a year. If you have the following concerns, dermal fillers may be the treatment for you:

  • Decreasing volume of the cheeks
  • Thinning lips
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Creases not caused by facial movements
