What is Jeuveau?
Cosmetic injectables fall into two categories: dermal fillers and neuromodulators. Jeuveau is created using a form of botulinum toxin A. When injected into the facial muscles, Jeuveau works to smooth unattractive forehead lines which form between your brows that leave you looking tired or angry by slowing the constant muscle motions creating the lines. The smoothing effect has the added benefit of preventing new creases from forming.
How is Jeuveau used?
The precise injection of neuromodulators requires extensive knowledge of facial muscular structure, as well as an understanding of the quantity of the product needed to create a very natural look. Jeuveau is best administered by a facial plastic surgeon who has the training and experience to produce fresh, natural-looking results. In the expert hands of Dr. Michael Kim, your Jeuveau injections will be performed carefully and accurately – for superior results.
What are the benefits of Jeuveau?
Hailed as “Newtox,” Jeuveau is the first neuromodulator of its kind created specifically for aesthetic purposes. When injected by a skilled surgeon, Jeuveau delivers:
- Reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Longer lasting results than its competitors
- Faster smoothing
- Can safely replace BOTOX
How is Jeuveau different from BOTOX?
Jeuveau and BOTOX are created from the same neuromodulator. BOTOX is the tried-and-true standard in the world of cosmetic injectables. Introduced in the early 2000s, BOTOX has been used for more than 15 years to give men and women a more youthful appearance. Jeuveau has the benefit of being manufactured with state-of-the-art technology and the most advanced manufacturing processes and was clinically tested on over 2,000 patients prior to achieving FDA approval.
What can I expect during treatment with Jeuveau?
When undergoing Jeuveau injections, Dr. Kim will first evaluate your facial condition and speak with you about what you want to achieve. The area to be treated, whether between the brows or to address forehead creases, can be numbed with a topical numbing cream if needed. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, Dr. Kim will strategically inject small amounts of Jeuveau to produce the smoothing effect. As Jeuveau is non-invasive, there is no recovery time – you are free to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.
What can I expect following treatment with Jeuveau?
There is no downtime with Jeuveau. You may experience mild redness, swelling, or tenderness at the injection sites. This is normal and should resolve within a day or two. You should avoid touching or rubbing the injection sites so the product does not spread more than it should and keep your head upright as you would after BOTOX injections. While some patients report seeing results in as little as two to three days, you should notice final results within seven to ten days. Studies have shown that results last for approximately three to six months, with an average duration of about five months.
