When sorting through cosmetic injectables, the list of possibilities can seem endless. Not all injectable therapies are created equal. Jeuveau belongs to the family of injectables known as neurotoxins or neuromodulators.
When injected into the facial muscles, Jeuveau temporarily relaxes these muscles smoothing the facial skin to leave you with a smooth, airbrushed finish.
What is Jeuveau?
We believe in aging gracefully. That doesn’t mean, however, that you have to take the visible signs of aging lying down. When fine lines and wrinkles set in, your face can appear tired and worn, and much older than you would prefer. Jeuveau is the latest form of neuromodulator to be approved by the FDA. When injected carefully, Jeuveau can release the muscles which cause you to look tired and worn, relaxing the facial muscles and smoothing your furrowed brow. Your face will look more youthful, rested, and ready to take on whatever the day brings.
How does Jeuveau work?
Jeuveau is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin A. When injected into the facial muscles, Jeuveau blocks the nerve signals which cause your muscles to create expressions. This facial movement etches lines and wrinkles into your face over time. Jeuveau not only relaxes the muscles into which it is injected, revitalizing your appearance, it also prevents new lines from forming, stopping the signs of aging before they can take root. Injections of neurotoxins like Jeuveau requires a delicate hand so as to not produce a frozen or artificial result. When injected by Dr. Weitzbuch, your face will appear youthful, refreshed, and awakened.
What are the benefits of Jeuveau?
Jeuveau leaves your face looking rejuvenated, smoothing the facial skin for a more alluring, youthful look. As the newest neurotoxin to be introduced to the market, Jeuveau has the benefit of:
- Modern manufacturing processes
- Modern purification techniques
- Being the only neuromodulator created specifically for aesthetic purposes
Who is a candidate for treatment with Jeuveau?
Men and women who are interested in revitalizing their facial appearance without the need for invasive surgery or downtime are excellent candidates for treatments with Jeuveau. Jeuveau is not suitable for use in women who are pregnant, nursing, or who wish to become pregnant. Additionally, patients with neurological disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or myasthenia gravis are not suitable candidates for treatment with Jeuveau. If you are allergic to the ingredients in Jeuveau or have had a reaction to other neuromodulators such as Xeomin or BOTOX, you should discuss this with Dr. Weitzbuch prior to treatment.
What’s the difference between Jeuveau and BOTOX?
Both Jeuveau and BOTOX are made from a purified form of botulinum toxin A and are used for the treatment of facial lines and creases. BOTOX has been the gold standard in the treatment of expression lines since its introduction to the market more than a decade ago. Jeuveau, however, has the benefit of modern technology and manufacturing processes behind it. Just think of how much has changed in the last ten years. The makers of Jeuveau are dedicated to your aesthetic goals, and it is the only neurotoxin available today that was created strictly for cosmetic enhancement. Jeuveau may even last a bit longer than its counterparts – up to six months!
What should I expect following treatment with Jeuveau?
Because Jeuveau is non-invasive, no downtime is required following treatment. You may immediately return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our offices. You should avoid vigorous exercise for one day following your treatment to allow Jeuveau to settle into place properly. You should also avoid touching or rubbing the area, as this can cause the product to migrate to areas of the face not intended for treatment. You should avoid laying down for at least four hours following your injections. Many men and women see results in as little as a few days, with final results visible approximately seven to ten days following treatment.
