Difference between Wrinkle Reducer and Dermal Fillers like Juvéderm.

Is aging optional? What is the difference between wrinkle reducers and fillers like Juvederm. Many women are willing to fight the signs of aging and turn back the clock to care for their skin. Two popular injectables fight the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss.  Botox and The Juvéderm Family of fillers are a dynamic duo.  

Botox or Filler? What is the difference? 

Both Botox and fillers are administered through injections. That is where the similarity ends. The difference is that botox acts to relax the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles while fillers are injected under the skin to add volume to the skin, making it look fuller, giving it a more youthful appearance.  

Benefits of Botox

  • Reduces wrinkles by reducing the movement of muscles in the face. 
  • Botox blocks the nerve signals from the targeted muscle. Blocking the signals paralyzes the muscle and freezes it. When the muscle is paralyzed, the wrinkles are significantly reduced or can completely disappear. 

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

  • As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin. Fillers stimulate the production of collagen.  
  • Dermal fillers provide instant volume in the targeted area, giving it a youthful appearance.  

Advanced Laser Clinic of Modesto provides both Botox and The Juvéderm Family of fillers.  Many patients will desire a combination of both Botox, to smooth out wrinkles and expression lines, and plump and fill other areas of the face with a filler like Juvéderm.  Our medical providers can explain both procedures and provide you with the information necessary to decide which treatment(s) would provide your desired result.
