Question : Is Juvederm used for the same problems that Botox is used for, the wrinkles in the forehead? How does it compare to Botox in price and in length of effects in keeping the face smooth?
Answer : Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler. This is used to actually mechanically fill the lines in the face and make them look smooth. Botox is a neuromodulator and this is used to weaken the underlying muscle which has intrinsic tension of the skin which, once this is relaxed, the skin appears smoother. The effects of these will vary based on patients.
