What Happens When You Use Botox and Juvederm Together?

Some things are simply better together. Peanut butter and jelly; chips and dip; and now, Botox and Juvederm. These two injectables tackle unwanted signs of aging using different formulas, so many people don’t realize that they can be used strategically in tandem to support each other’s longevity and effectiveness. If you’re eager to find a simple yet long-lasting solution to the lines and wrinkles on your face, a combination of Botox and Juvederm could be the answer.

The Difference Between Botox and Juvederm

Botox is not a dermal filler like Juvederm. It is a neuromodulator that is injected directly into the specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles to form. The purified proteins in Botox relax muscles by blocking the signals that control contractions. Within a week of treatment, this makes it possible for wrinkles to fade away as smooth and youthful skin reappears. Due to the nature of Botox, it works most efficiently to smooth away frown lines in the forehead area, crow’s feet around the eyes, glabellar lines between the eyebrows, and neck wrinkles.
