Frequently Asked Questions
How is Juvederm different from Botox?
Although Botox and Juvederm are both very popular products for reducing wrinkles, they are very different products. Botox injections paralyze the muscles under the wrinkles, thereby relaxing the muscle and removing the wrinkles above it.
Juvederm is a filler that plumps out the area under the wrinkles to create a smooth surface on the skin above it. Itcauses less puffiness for the first few days after a treatment and is commonly considered slightly smoother. .
What is treatment like?
Most treatment sessions only take about 15 minutes. As with all dermal fillers, Juvederm is injected into the treatment area with an extremely fine needle, so discomfort is usually minimal.
How long does it take to work?
The effects of Juvederm are typically visible immediately, but it can take a few days to “settle into” its final shape.
How long will it last?
Depending on the area treated and your individual skin type, Juvederm will typically last about 4-6 months.
