Are you curious about how to tell if you need the best Botox in West Virginia, or whether Restylane or Juvederm would better meet your needs?

Today we take a look at all three of these products to help you make an informed decision.

What Is Botox?

Botox is an injectable toxin that relaxes the muscles in your face which cause wrinkles to form.

This popular product is commonly used to treat the wrinkles in between the brows, on forehead lines, or crow’s feet around the eyes.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that is comprised of hyaluronic acid.

This product adds volume beneath your skin to combat wrinkles or to address laxity or hollowness in your face.

Most doctors inject Restylane into the upper cheeks, to smooth wrinkles on the face, to accentuate the jaw line, and more.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that treats moderate to severe facial folds.

Additionally, this product can raise the brows, enhance the lips or smooth out hollow under eyes.

Which Product Lasts Longer?

You can generally expect your Botox treatments to last three to four months before you will need to return for a repeat injection.

Restylane and Juvederm tend to last longer.

Depending on the treatment area, you can expect your filler products to last anywhere from six months or longer.

What are the Side Effects?

Side effects with injectables are typically very mild and should go down within a day or two.

The most common side effects you can expect from any of these treatments include bruising, redness, swelling, or itching at the site of the injection.
