If you want to restore your youthful appearance, a cosmetic filler may be what you need to reach your goal. With so many different fillers available today, it can be difficult to choose the one that will work best for your needs. Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm each offer their own fair share of benefits for each specific patient. Though you should always speak with your plastic surgeon about choosing the right one for you, take a moment to read about the differences between these three cosmetic fillers.
Botox is probably the most popular of any cosmetic fillers available today. The word has practically become synonymous with the concept of fillers. Essentially, this FDA-approved formulation paralyzes small muscles in the face in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It works best to reduce wrinkles from frown lines that form on the forehead.
Juvederm cosmetic filler is a gel, and it’s best used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and nose. It works to smooth out lines in the face to provide the patient with a more youthful, smoother appearance.
Restylane cosmetic filler is injected slightly beneath the skin to smooth out medium to small lines in the face. Much like Juvederm, this filler does not contain any animal or human DNA, and it is very safe to use.
