Most people are familiar with Botox as a cosmetic injection for unwanted facial wrinkles. But Botox is only one amongst many neuromodulator brands, including Jeuveau. Promising the same results as Botox, Jeuveau is a new botulinum toxin available at a more affordable rate.
The New Botulinum Toxin on the Block
Most patients use “Botox” as synonymous with all wrinkle relaxers that target dynamic wrinkles. But in actuality, Botox is simply the most popular neuromodulator because it was the first such injection to receive FDA approval for wrinkle correction. You can also suppress unwanted facial wrinkles using numerous other cosmetic injections, including Jeuveau, a new botulinum toxin injection with similar properties as Botox. Jeuveau is also more affordable than Botox injections.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a cosmetic injection that corrects moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as the angry 11s or the glabellar lines. While Jeuveau is FDA-approved for the correction of frown lines, its off-label applications also extend to the forehead lines, crow’s feet, perioral lines around the mouth, and other parts of the face. Jeuveau injections suppress the unwanted wrinkles within a few days and last several months.
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
- Smoker’s line around the lips
- Chin creases, also known as a cobblestone chin
- Banding on the neck
How Jeuveau Works
Jeuveau is made of a neurotoxin protein that can temporarily block the passage of signals from nerve endings to muscles. Dynamic wrinkles occur because of excessive facial muscle contractions after years of communicating certain facial expressions, such as laughing and frowning. Jeuveau temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles responsible for the unwanted expression lines, thus smoothening the facial skin and reversing the signs of aging.
Benefits of Jeuveau:
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Only involves a few simple injections
- Minimal discomfort during the treatment
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Addresses the root cause of wrinkles
- Prevents the onset of new facial wrinkles
- No post-treatment downtime
What’s the difference between Jeuveau and Botox?
Jeuveau and Botox are made of the same active ingredient — botulinum toxin type A. When injected into targeted facial muscles, both cosmetic injections are equally effective in reducing the prominence of facial wrinkles. But the two injections may have minor differences in the formula, making one more suitable than the other for some patients. Furthermore, Jeuveau is a new botulinum injection available at a lower rate.
How long will the Jeuveau results last?
The Jeuveau results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you need additional treatments.
How many Jeuveau sessions do I need?
Most patients need 3 to 4 Jeuveau sessions per year to maintain youthful skin all year long.
What happens during the Jeuveau treatment?
During your Jeuveau treatment, we cleanse your facial skin, apply a numbing gel to the skin, and mark the targeted injection points. Finally, we inject Jeuveau into the targeted areas using ultrafine needles. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes.
What are the side effects of Jeuveau?
Jeuveau involves minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, numbness, and bruising around the injection points. The side effects dissipate within a few days.
Is there any downtime after Jeuveau?
Jeuveau doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment, but high-intensity workouts should be avoided for a day.
When will I see the results of Jeuveau?
You should see mild improvements after a few days, with continued improvements for 2 weeks.
