BOTOX® injection is able to interrupt neuromuscular transmissions (signals being carried between the muscles and the brains) through the botulinum toxin that makes up the main part of its composition. When these transmissions are halted by the toxin, the muscles are given enough time to relax, affecting the skin above them and allowing lines and wrinkles to soften and, ultimately, smooth. BOTOX® is an FDA approved treatment for glabellar lines, smoothing them away and preventing future ones from developing for the duration of its effect.
Juvéderm™ is also an injectable but, instead of being composed of botulinum toxin, it employs hyaluronic acid to help plump up the skin and stimulate natural processes that can reverse common signs of aging — such as glabellar lines. Juvéderm™ can also effectively treat this concern, and is often used in conjunction with BOTOX® to remedy more severe and deep wrinkling. Like BOTOX®, Juvéderm™ can also eliminate severe creases and lines with recurring use.
Regular BOTOX® and/or Juvéderm™ sessions can drastically reduce the appearance of glabellar lines and allow you to look younger and more refreshed.
