Botox Cosmetic is a safe, FDA-approved treatment that smooths out moderate-to-severe wrinkles. Botox contains minute amounts of a highly purified protein that comes from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

Juvederm is a family of safe, FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers that are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that’s found in your body where it hydrates the skin and lubricates the joints.
You start to lose HA as you age, leading to such issues as wrinkles, creases, and sagging. Juvederm treatment areas include:
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Perioral lines
A nonsurgical liquid facelift combines Juvederm dermal fillers and Botox to smooth wrinkles, fill in lost facial and lip volume, and lift facial tissues to create a younger, fresher look.
If you're in the early stages of aging, the effect of a liquid facelift can be similar to a surgical facelift. That's especially true if you use it in conjunction with another lifting, tightening, and rejuvenating procedures, such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and Kybella® to remove a double chin.
You may feel a slight pinch when your Art of Rejuvenation Medicine professional injects Botox or Juvederm. All of the Juvederm products are formulated with lidocaine to make them more comfortable.
Each of the fillers and Botox has a different longevity. You and your Art of Rejuvenation Medicine professional work out a maintenance schedule, just as you may have a schedule for regular haircuts and coloring:
