Botox vs Restalyne vs Juvederm -  Similarities and Differences Explained

Botox vs Restalyne vs Juvederm - Similarities and Differences Explained

13 June

For patients looking to reduce wrinkles, a variety of cosmetic treatments are available. Recently, Botox and dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm have become incredibly popular for achieving a more youthful look. But, what’s the difference between these treatments?

Botox, Juvederm And Restylane Can Help You Reduce Signs Of Aging

Botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxant that is generally referred to as Botox. It is known to rejuvenate aging facial skin by reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. To do this, it blocks the nerve signals that cause the facial muscles to move. Botox is injected directly into the affected muscle, paralyzing it temporarily to smooth the face.

Botox has been on the market for decades and has produced some exceptional results. Created from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria, Botox targets dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines and crow’s feet, that become prominent with age. Botox relaxes the muscles under these areas, temporarily reducing the look of wrinkles.

Both Juvederm and Restylane contain, hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is capable of binding to moisture, working to keep the skin fresh and healthy. As time passes, the skin loses this natural hyaluronic acid content, which makes it appear looser and less voluminous. Hyaluronic acid fillers provide additional moisture and fullness to the skin, making it appear younger. Poly-L-lactic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite are also popular filler ingredients. Dermal fillers also eliminate wrinkles on the face. In comparison to Botox, dermal fillers correct the appearance of wrinkles by filling in depressions under the skin. Restylane and Juvederm fillers may also be used to plump the lips and cheeks, contour the face, and reduce scarring. Similar to Botox, the effects of dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are temporary; however, depending on the filler, the effects can last several years.

How soon can you see results with Botox and with Juvederm or Restylane

On average, 80% of Botox’s effects are visible after 4–7 days. Depending on the filler used, the smoothing effect of dermal fillers is immediate. Some cosmetic fillers work by stimulating natural collagen production, so the full effect of these fillers may take several months to become visible.

How long do results last for Botox and dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane

Botox is not a permanent solution. The effects produced by Botox are temporary, and they wear off in around 3–4 months. To maintain the results, additional treatments are needed.

Dermal fillers typically last between 6 months to a year. Some fillers can last up to 2 years or more. Maintenance treatments are also needed.

Differences in cost from treatments

Botox treatments is usually priced by the unit. The average cost is $10 to $15 per unit in the US.

The cost of dermal fillers depends on the type and amount of the dermal filler that is used. For instance, collagen-based dermal fillers normally cost $250–800, whereas hyaluronic acid- and calcium hydroxylapatite-based dermal fillers cost an average of $600 or more.

Which treatment is less painful?

A Botox injection feels like any other injection—a minor pinch or sting. The amount of pain also depends on the area being injected. To reduce sensations of pain, a topical anesthetic or injection may be used.
These injections usually sting slightly and are only mildly uncomfortable. To reduce discomfort, a topical anesthetic or injection may be used prior to the procedure.

As they are both administered in a similar manner, neither treatment is considered more or less painful than the other.

Which treatment has less side effects?

Both injectable treatments commonly cause injection-related responses. These include redness, mild swelling, pain, and bruising around the site of injection. Dermal fillers and Botox may induce other side effects. Discuss all possible side effects with your injector prior to treatment.

Dermal fillers and Botox are both good options for eliminating wrinkles. Discuss both options with your doctor to determine which treatment is most suitable for the results you are looking for.
