The Truth About BOTOX and Fillers

If you’re interested anti-aging injectors such as BOTOX® and Juvéderm®, then it’s important to understand exactly how they work and how they benefit your skin! Both will bring a revived and younger-looking skin, just make sure you know which ones are right for you.


BOTOX is an excellent preventative care technique for wrinkles and fine lines. How does it work? It’s injected into the muscles on your face that cause crow’s feet and frown lines. It works underneath the skin to temporarily reduce the muscle activity. It’s for this reason, BOTOX is better as a preventative care. To target crow’s feet, a medical specialist injects three areas of the muscles framing the side of each eye. For frown lines, the specialist injects several muscles in the forehead and in between the eyes (

It’s recommended you begin injections in your 30s and 40s to help keep the muscles relaxed and prevent wrinkles from forming at all. However, even if wrinkles have already formed, BOTOX will temporarily reduce the appearance of those fine lines by relaxing the muscles underneath. Speak with your medical aesthetician to determine a plan for regular injections.  


Juvéderm filler injections are great for adding volume back into cheeks and lips! Three of the most popular types of Juvéderm fillers include Juvéderm Ultra XC, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC and Voluma® XC. They all target different areas, bringing a youthful glow back to your face so you feel confident and beautiful. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC adds volume to the areas around your nose and mouth that tend to lose elasticity over time resulting in wrinkles.

Growing old doesn’t just cause wrinkles, it also causes the cheeks to flatten and begin to sag due to a loss of volume. Voluma XC adds volume back beneath the skin’s surface for lifted and contoured cheeks!

Another sign of aging is when the lips begin to thin. Juvéderm Ultra XC is injected into the lips resulting in a fuller appearance. This procedure is also approved for those with naturally thinner lips who would like them to appear fuller.

We recommend visiting a medical aesthetician for a skincare consultation before getting BOTOX or Juvéderm fillers.
