Juvéderm or Botox for Wrinkles: Differences, Results, and Costs

Large numbers of patients across the country are considering either Botox or Juvéderm to smooth the look of their wrinkles. But what exactly is the difference between these two types of treatment, and which one is right for you? By knowing a few facts about both options, it’s easier to find an anti-aging solution that’s right for you.

Injection procedures

There are a number of similarities between Juvéderm and Botox treatments.

  • Both products are injected to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including crows feet around the eyes, horizontal forehead creases, and vertical lip lines between the nose and mouth.
  • Botox is primarily used to treat wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.
  • Juvéderm is an injectable filler that’s designed to instantly add volume back to facial tissues, smooth deep lines between the nose and mouth, and improve the look of lips.

Effects of each treatment

When it comes to both types of injection treatments, there are several visible differences.

  • With Botox, the effects will usually last for about three to six months. After that period of time, the wrinkles start to reappear, and another treatment is needed.
  • The effects with Juvéderm anti-wrinkle injections may only last two to four months because the injected product starts to break down over time.

One of the benefits with Juvéderm is that multiple treatments may be performed to deliver long-term results, while Botox isn’t recommended for more than three months of injections.


The cost for each anti-aging treatment procedure can vary based on where it’s performed, by whom, and what type of product is used.

For instance, one Juvéderm syringe is valued at $1,000 to $1,200, which may last up to six months. The standard Botox injection can cost around $10 each for between 12 and 20 units per treatment.

Both products are considered safe and effective anti-aging treatments that can help you maintain a youthful appearance without undergoing surgery or any invasive procedures.
