Botox & Juvederm Q & A

How do Botox and Juvéderm combat the signs of aging?

Botox is an injectable wrinkle reducer made from a purified neurotoxin. It offers temporary wrinkle reduction by lessening muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles to form on your face. 

Botox is well-studied and approved for use in 96 countries. The FDA approves it for use to soften crow’s feet around the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead, and lines between the brows.

Juvéderm is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid. You produce ample amounts of hyaluronic acid in your youth, but production decreases as you get older. Juvéderm provides you with the hyaluronic acid you’ve lost. Injections plump your skin and fill in hollow contours, fine lines, and wrinkles.

The team at Elevate Health Group may recommend Juvéderm to temporarily improve the look of such issues as:

  • Thinning lips
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Smile lines
  • Hollowed cheeks

Combining Botox and Juvéderm treatments often gives you the most comprehensive youth-enhancing results. Treatments keep you looking like yourself, but with fewer wrinkles, lines, and hollowing.

How long do the effects of Botox and Juvéderm last?

The effects of Botox start to show up about 24-48 hours following treatment, with full results evident in one week. Botox provides results that last 3-4 months.

The effects of Juvéderm are noticeable right away. You achieve a revitalized look for up to 18 months. 

Regular retreatments of both injectables allow you to maintain your youthful look.

Do injections of Botox and Juvéderm hurt?

The team at Elevate Health Group uses a tiny needle to apply Botox and Juvéderm, so you will feel a pinch with each injection. Most people tolerate the injections quite well. 

Juvéderm contains lidocaine to help ease any discomfort. The entire procedure to receive Botox and Juvéderm is quite short, too, lasting no more than 30 minutes.

If you’re concerned about pain, talk to the providers about using a topical numbing cream or ice prior to treatment so you have less sensation. 

Are there any side effects of Botox and Juvéderm?

You may have slight swelling or redness at the injection sites, but these effects fade shortly after treatment. No downtime is required following Botox or Juvéderm injections. You can have your procedure done during your lunch hour and return to work right afterward.
