True or False: Botox and Fillers Can Be Used in the Same Way

A common misconception about Botox in Utah County, is that Botox and fillers are used in the same way. That is not the case!

While both products lessen the appearance of wrinkles, they work very differently.

I once had a friend tell me that she wanted to get her lips “Botoxed.” I let her know that what she wanted was a dermal filler to plump up her lips, such as Juvederm. Surprisingly, her mistake is not an uncommon one. Many people, who have come to our medical spa in UT County, ask the same question. But you would definitely NOT want to inject Botox in the lips.

And I will tell you why!

Botox is a neurotoxin that actually relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles. It smoothes those wrinkles that are caused by the active muscles in your face. Botox is used in the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows, and lasts around 3-4 months.

So, if you were to use Botox in the lips, you would not be able to move your mouth like you normally do. You would probably look like you do after a visit to the dentist…but for about 3- 4 months, which is probably not the look you are going for.

That’s why there are dermal fillers.

Dermal Fillers work in a much different way. As opposed to Botox, you would use a Dermal Filler, such as Juvederm or Restylane, to actually fill a line or wrinkle. Generally, fillers are used for the lower half of the face. They can be used to fill the cheeks, smile lines, lips, and vertical lip lines. Occasionally, fillers are used for very deep set lines in the forehead, in conjunction with Botox. And the product lasts much longer than Botox, around 9 months to a year.

So while the two products are used for similar things, looking younger and getting rid of wrinkles, they work in very different ways.

There are many medical spas that provide Botox in UT County.

It’s All About the Lips!

Unfortunately, we weren’t all blessed with naturally luscious lips like Angelina Jolie. And those of us who weren’t have had to find our own solutions.

How many of you out there have gone to medical spas in Utah, and gotten lip plumping products, or tried doing your lip liner/lipstick to make your lips looks bigger? Sadly, I have tried these tricks, and either ended up looking like a clown, or not noticing a difference.

So what’s a girl to do?!

Have you ever considered Dermal Fillers, such as Juvederm?

Juvederm is a cosmetic Dermal Filler, which is an injectable gel that is incredibly effective in attaining plumper lips. It’s a hyaluronic acid product, which is a substance that is naturally found in the human body. Juvederm is ideal for soft tissue augmentation, such as the cheeks, smiles lines, and of course, the lips.

I know what you’re all thinking. You would love to have luscious lips, but you’re imaging one of the women on Housewives of Beverly Hills, with big, giant, duck-like lips. I’m here to tell you, that is an absolute misconception.

Obviously, there are people out there who overfill their lips. And believe me; we think they look ridiculous too! But did you know that you can get a lip augmentation and actually have it look plump, beautiful, and very natural?

I had my lips done using Juvederm, and while I was terrified they were going to look overfilled, the result was so subtle, most of my friends and family didn’t even notice. And I was left with fuller, more beautiful lips.

Now I can finally wear lipstick and actually have full lips to put it on!

So how does it work?

Juvederm is injected into the lips with a fine needle, by one of our license Medical Professionals. The product has lidocaine in it, which helps reduce pain. It takes around 20-30 minutes at our Medical Spa in Orem, and the down-time is generally not too long. You will see the beautiful results after just one week.

Plus, if you end up not liking your results (which I highly doubt you will), you can have it reversed by injecting Hyaluronidase.

If you are looking for fuller, more pouty, luscious lips, Restylane or Juvederm is the perfect solution! Plus,right now we are offering $100 instant rebate. Now is the time to get those lips you have always wanted! Give us a call at Spa Trouve at 801.229.2229 . We have some of the best Juvederm Utah prices, and to set up your free consultation today!
