Chances are, you’ve heard of Botox and probably Juvéderm too. Used alone, these products do wonders for decreasing wrinkles and erasing years from the face. Used together, Botox and Juvéderm offer a literal “liquid facelift” that is virtually pain-free and requires no real downtime.

Botox relaxes muscles that pull the skin and cause wrinkles, while Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid based injectable filler that plumps up wrinkles and fills creases. Most commonly, Botox is used to eliminate crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. Juvéderm is typically used on the lower half of the face and works wonders on folds like those smile lines, or “parentheses,” that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It’s also used to improve fine lines around the mouth and hollow areas under the eyes.

Done properly, this liquid facelift provides natural looking results. Find an injector who focuses specifically on administering injectables and fillers, and you will be on your way to a safe, beautifying experience!
