What is the Difference Between BOTOX and Juvederm?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


There are a number of procedures Denver-area patients can use to achieve dramatic facial rejuvenation. One of the best options is Juvederm, an injectable dermal filler offered at Grossman Plastic Surgery.

In the field of facial injectables, BOTOX® is certainly the most well-known. As such, comparisons between Juvederm and BOTOX® are inevitable. And both are extremely effective at smoothing out skin and eliminating the signs of age and wear.

But they accomplish these goals in vastly different ways. BOTOX® is a medically engineered and weakened form of the botulism toxin that works by blocking the nerve receptors in your facial muscles from receiving contraction signals sent by your brains.

By contrast, Juvederm is a dermal filler compound made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acids. It is injected under the skin, replenishing your skin’s lost stores of hyaluronic acids and plumping the treatment area.

With a smooth, gel-like consistency, Juvederm provides a uniform, predictable and natural-looking set of results. Our doctors will be happy to evaluate your cosmetic needs and determine if BOTOX® or Juvederm is the right treatment for you.
