Comparing Juvederm VS Botox for Forehead

One of the most tell-tale signs of aging is forehead wrinkles which are a given as we grow older. While there’s nothing we can do to completely stop developing those creases, at least we can have them smoothed out even temporarily with wonders of cosmetic treatment. Thanks to the magical effect of injectables such as Juvederm and Botox, we can somehow turn back the clock and look considerably younger than we actually are.

But how do you choose between Juvederm VS Botox for forehead wrinkles? Both of these products are immensely popular in the market as wrinkle relaxer, but they are drastically different from each other. While Botox is a drug that partially paralyzes muscles to stop the muscle contraction that produces wrinkles, Juvederm is a type of dermal filler that fills in existing wrinkles.

Juvederm VS Botox: How They Work

While both Juvederm and Botox are effective in reducing signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, it’s the way they work that spells the difference and will also help you decide which treatment is better for your skin problems. They also differ in terms of the kind of lines and wrinkles that they can fix.

Botox, which uses a bacterial neurotoxin called botulinum, works by relaxing the facial muscles, which makes it extremely useful as a cosmetic treatment. It is generally more suited for treating lines and wrinkles that form due to repetitive muscle movement, such as the forehead and eye area. After getting a Botulinum toxin injection, your muscles can no longer contract as strong. This makes both the muscles and the skin on top of them smoother. Deep facial folds and lines become less creased and wrinkles may even disappear altogether. The common treatment areas for Botox treatment include forehead lines and wrinkles, frown lines between the eyebrows or glabellar lines, crow’s feet lines, and smoker’s lines.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm contain a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in your skin. It helps your skin look smooth, plump, and youthful. As you get older, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, thus resulting in dry skin, skin folds, facial lines, and wrinkles. Juvederm, as a hyaluronic acid filler, is most often used for treating the lower face such as the cheek, jaw, chin and lip area. 

After being injected with a facial filler such as Juvederm, your skin plumps almost instantly, smoothing out those marionette lines, nasolabial fold, and other facial wrinkles and providing volume to areas of deficiency.

How Botox Cosmetic Can Help With Deep Forehead Wrinkles

Aging is the main factor in developing forehead wrinkles, but so is making the same facial expressions over and over again. The continuous use of our face for expressing our emotions leads to the formation of horizontal lines in the forehead, furrows, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Botox works best in these regions in preventing wrinkles from forming and also treats the ones that already exist.

What Can Dermal Fillers Do For Forehead Lines

Compared to Botox, dermal fillers are relatively new but it quickly gained a huge following as an anti-aging treatment. Dermal fillers may be more appropriate in certain areas than Botox, depending on the area of your face and how acute your wrinkles are.

Dermal fillers work using hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that assists your skin in absorbing water, giving it a plumper appearance. Some of the most common areas of treatment with dermal fillers like Juvederm include cheeks, chin, jawline, temples, lips and under eyes.

Who Can Use Juvederm and Botox

Most people can use both Juvederm and Botox safely, although there are some who are better off avoiding or delaying these treatments. Those who are pregnant and nursing are generally advised to avoid all injectables. You should also delay having injectable treatments if you have a skin rash or infection in any potential treatment area, if you were vaccinated or plan to be vaccinated within two weeks of the treatment, or if you had dental work within two weeks of doing the filler on or around the mouth. If you have multiple allergies or severe allergies, you should avoid having injectable treatments unless approved by your healthcare provider. 

Static VS Dynamic Wrinkles

Static wrinkles are those lines that you clearly see when the face is rest and relaxed. The dermal layer of our skin becomes thinner as we age and the loss of fullness and elasticity results in the development of static wrinkles. Meanwhile, dynamic wrinkles are those lines that develop when wrinkles no longer fade as your face relaxes. By enhancing fullness to the dermal layer, dermal fillers such as Juvederm assist with eliminating wrinkles by filling up the tissue and improving it to appear more youthful and with fewer creases.

What to Consider When Choosing Treatment Options

Evolve staff

Choosing between Juvederm filler and Botox as the better injectable treatment for you will depend on certain factors. You have to consider the dynamics of your facial muscles and then determine the type of deep wrinkles that you have. In a lot of cases and when you have both static and dynamic wrinkles, providers recommend combining both treatments to get the ideal results. This is effective in smoothing all types of wrinkles on your face. During your consultation with your provider, your face will be assessed to see which areas should be treated. He or she will explain the best course of treatment for each area.
