Evolution MedSpa offers a variety of injectable products specifically designed to target fine lines, wrinkles, and the loss of volume that you may experience as you age. Injectables are also effectively being used more widely by those in their 20’s-30’s to prevent signs of aging. Injectables can reverse signs of aging to have you looking as young as you feel.

Botulinum toxins (Botox) was FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2002. Botox works to actually reduce muscle activity in treated areas. Injecting botox into a muscle causes it to no longer contract, which softens and relaxes wrinkles. Botox is a temporary treatment often used to moderate severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. Results can take from 7-14 days to take effect. Botox results could last 3-6 months before needing to be treated again. Over time, wrinkles may come back less sever due to the muscle shrinking. There is no downtime after Botox and only minor discomfort during the procedure.

Juvederm is an FDA approved gel filler made from hyaluronic acid- a sugar found naturally in your skin. Juvederm also treats wrinkles, but instead of relaxing muscle contractions the way that Botox does, Juvederm fills in wrinkles by injecting hyaluronic gel around the area. Juvederm results also take a few days to see and they last longer depending on the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the filler. Results of fillers with the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid can last more than a year. There is no downtime after Juvederm and only minor discomfort during the procedure.

Botox vs. Juvederm: The Main Difference

The main difference between these two injectables are that Botox relaxes wrinkles, while Juvederm fills them. With that being said, Botox is the best treatment for wrinkles that appear on movement, while Juvederm is perfect for wrinkles that are always present. Both can be effective in plumping lips.

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau is molecularly identical to Botox and actively marketed as #newtox. Jeuveau, or Newtox, is the first neurotoxin that has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use since Botox was approved in 2002. While Newtox and Botox are virtually identical, the price point on Newtox is lower than that of Botox, making Newtox a great alternative for those on a budget looking to try something new.
