Getting Rid of Forehead Wrinkles: Botox or Juvederm?

Redheaded GirlWrinkles are a natural result of aging, and one of the first places they’ll begin to show is on your forehead. Fortunately, there are safe treatments that you can go through to eliminate forehead wrinkles.

Two of the most popular procedures for wrinkle removal are Juvederm and Botox, which you can get here in our clinic in New York. They’re both injection procedures that help bring back the youthful texture of the skin, though in different ways. Find out which one is more appropriate for you.

Botox

Botox is one of the three main types of non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques available in NYC. A diluted botulinum protein, Botox relaxes wrinkles, including the worry lines on your forehead and other fine lines caused by repeated facial expressions.

The effects of a Botox injection last for three to six months for most patients. The results, however, depend on the used number of units and how strong the muscle is. Follow-up visits should be every three months to keep the wrinkles from reappearing. Moreover, regular treatment may shrink the problem muscle areas, letting the wrinkles fade away.

Using Hylacross technology, Juvederm is a sterile gel made of hyaluronic acid. This type of acid is a natural gas that you can find in your skin, and it acts as a cushioning agent by holding in water at the injection site. It has the best safety profile compared to other fillers because it doesn’t contain any human or animal DNA. Rather, biosynthesis develops the acid in a Juvederm gel. Because of its nature, taking an allergy test before the treatment will not be necessary.

Juvederm treatment lasts for six to eight months and corrects moderate wrinkles on your forehead and other parts of your face.
