What To Expect Before The Treatment

You should also inform your medical practitioner about any medication you are taking such as aspirin or any other anti-coagulants.
Finally, you should definitely avoid the treatment if you are on a course of antibiotics within the last 6 months – this is best discussed with your doctor!

However, there might be small, raised areas at the injection site, though it will disappear within 1-2 hours post treatment. There might also be minor bruising, tenderness or redness that might resolve in a few days. This could be due to the sensitivity of your skin.
To quicken the healing process, you should avoid drinking alcohol and applying makeup for 12 hours, refraining from exercise for 48 hour and take special care to stay away from sun exposure, UV light, saunas and freezing temperatures for 2 weeks.
What Side Effects Should You Look Out For?
- Minor reactions, such as redness, itching, pain or pressure
- Minor bruising, hardening or lumps at the injection site.
- Staining or discoloring at injection site
- Poor or weak filling effect
Differences Between Juvederm Volite And Botox
Are they both safe?
While both are FDA-approved injectables used as anti-aging treatments, Botox and Juvederm operate on different principles and are best on different types of wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein that relaxes the muscles that cause fine lines, wrinkles and folds. In contrast, Juvederm is a line of fillers rather than a relaxer, that works by filling in the grooves and lines to eliminate wrinkles and smooth the skin.
Types of wrinkles treated
While both treatments are effective for smoothing out the wrinkles on your face, they do not work on the same type of wrinkles.
Botox is best for the expression lines that develop as we age like the deep lines and wrinkles in the skin around the eyes and on the forehead. These wrinkles appear on movement such as when you furrow your brow, squint your eyes, or smile, laugh or frown.
Juvederm is more suitable for wrinkles that are present when your face is at rest. It is a smooth gel filler made of hyaluronic acid that can help replenish the areas of the face where the skin’s volume and fullness have been lost due to age, sagginess, or other reasons.
Time and results of treatment
Both treatments work fast and the results are noticeable within a couple of days after your session.
With Botox, typically you can expect the results to last from three to six months. But over time when facial muscles aren’t used, they eventually get shorter and smaller so regular use of Botox may extend the results for longer periods of time.
Juvederm typically provides optimal results with a single treatment ranging from 9 months up to 18 months. These results also depend on the concentration of hyaluronic acid with the highest concentrations providing longer-lasting results.
