Some of the earliest aging signs are lines and wrinkles that are caused by years of making facial expressions. For decades, Botox® has been regarded as the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment to treat these aging signs. Now, the FDA has approved a new treatment known as Jeuveau®. This neuromodulator injectable treatment is FDA-approved for the sole purpose of aesthetics. It targets the wrinkles between the eyebrows that cause people to appear older.
- Jeuveau® is a neuromodulator injectable formula.
- Jeuveau® is completely nonsurgical, so there is no scarring.
- Jeuveau® is FDA-approved to treat frown lines.
- Jeuveau® results can last for four months or longer.
No one enjoys looking older. That is why patients turn to products like Botox® and Jeuveau® to address early aging signs. Lines and wrinkles develop due to repeated muscle contractions in the face, loss of collagen, gravity, and even environmental factors. Everyone gets wrinkles, no matter what the cause is, but Jeuveau® can help to smooth out these aging signs.
Many people turn to Jeuveau® to prevent the formation of deep wrinkles. With over 2100 patients treated with 5 clinical studies, many are now turning to this proven method. Many patients use Jeuveau® to enhance their results from a surgical facelift. While others, who do not wish for surgery, use Jeuveau® to soften their lines and wrinkles. Patients are satisfied with this treatment because there is no scarring or downtime.
Jeuveau® is similar to Botox®. It is made of an injectable form of prabotulinumtoxin A. Wrinkles are formed by the contraction of muscles in the face. When Jeuveau® is injected near the nerve, the signal that tells the muscles to contract is stopped. This prevents the muscles from contracting, which results in a smoother appearance. Jeuveau® is ideal for frown lines because these are present with facial expression, but the face won’t appear frozen. Patients can still make their normal expressions. This treatment is temporary, eventually, it will wear off and the facial muscles will start to contract like normal again.
At BioSpa, we work with each patient individually to develop a custom treatment plan unique to their concerns and aesthetic goals. When it comes to using Jeuveau® to treat lines and wrinkles, your treatment plan will depend on the extent of the aging signs and where they occur. During the treatment, the injection points will be mapped out around the forehead and brows. Then Jeuveau® will be placed in these areas. Patients might feel a slight pinch during the injection process. This treatment is quick, only taking about 15 minutes.
There is no downtime required for Jeuveau®. However, there are still certain things to keep in mind to ensure the best results. These are:
- Do not massage or rub the treatment area.
- Avoid exercising right after the treatment. If possible, wait at least 24 hours.
- Avoid hot showers for 24 hours.
- Keep the head elevated for at least four hours after treatment.
- Watch for significant swelling, itching, or difficulty breathing. These could be potential signs of an allergic reaction.
Patients may notice some results from Jeuveau® immediately. It could take up to a week for the full results to show. Jeuveau® patients can enjoy a younger appearance with fewer lines and wrinkles. Results can last anywhere from four to six months. Maintenance sessions are recommended to refresh the results.
For cosmetic treatments, great results can come from combining different options. Jeuveau® alone is an effective solution but pairing it with other options can address various other concerns at the same time. Fillers can be added to a Jeuveau® treatment for subtle volume in the lips and cheeks.
Since the aging process doesn’t stop, a surgical solution may be a future treatment that can address severe volume loss, sagging, and deep wrinkles or lines. A facelift or neck lift can be performed to tighten the facial muscles and smooth out the skin.
