Men and women concerned about frown lines, smile lines or other fine lines and wrinkles in the face now have a new, natural and effective option to minimize their symptoms and avoid problems before they occur — Jeuveau™. Jeuveau™ — also known as “Newtox” or “New Botox” — is a tested, proven and FDA-approved neuromodulator similar to Botox but with added advantages. If the lines between your eyes have begun to age you, or if you want to get started on an effective dynamic wrinkle preventer to maintain your youth, schedule your in-person consultation with Dr. Leslie Smith at Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics and ask about Jeuveau™. You can keep these troubling aging signs at bay quickly, easily and affordably with Jeuveau™.
What is Jeuveau™?
Jeuveau™ is a new and aesthetics-only use neuromodulator that is very similar to other neuromodulators on the market, such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. The injectable, however, is derived from a different strain of botulin than Botox. Botox is a safe derivative of onabotulinumtoxinA, while Jeuveau™ is derived from prabotulinumtoxinA, which is also safe when used in appropriate quantities and for prescribed uses. The two injectables are also produced by different manufacturers; Botox is manufactured by Allergan in the United States, while Jeuveau™ is produced by Evolus, in South Korea.
Despite the differences in the makeup between the two treatments, Jeuveau™ improves the same facial aging symptoms and works in much the same way as Botox. Jeuveau™ is an ideal injectable for the treatment of the glabellar lines (also known as “11 lines”), which appear between the brows and can have unwanted aging affect on an individual’s appearance. The injectable can produce results quickly, which can be easily and affordably maintained through routine follow-ups.
How does Jeuveau™ work?
Jeuveau™, a neuromodulator, effectively treats “dynamic wrinkles,” wrinkles that are produced and exacerbated by the stress on the skin caused by repeated muscle movements. These types of wrinkles commonly occur between the eyebrows and across the forehead and are the natural result of emotive facial expressions, such as smiling and laughing. Short of avoiding making those expressions, dynamic wrinkles can’t be prevented, but they can be effectively treated, minimized and controlled with Jeuveau™.
A Jeuveau™ treatment temporarily interrupts the signals which cause muscles to contract, creating and contributing to the formation of dynamic wrinkles. As treated muscles relax, patients experience much smoother skin with minimized wrinkles and a much more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Jeuveau™ is not a permanent treatment, however. You will need additional, periodic sessions to maintain your results, but additional sessions are as quick, convenient and effective as your first. Also, like Botox, Jeuveau™ can be discontinued at any time without permanent side effects.
What are the benefits of having Jeuveau™?
Jeuveau™ is intended for the treatment of the glabellar or “11” lines which are found between the brows and are the result of repeated muscle movements on the skin. Patients who have Jeuveau™ will enjoy smoother skin as a result of inhibited muscle movements in this area, with minimized wrinkles and can help delay the deepening and progression of these wrinkles, as well.
One key and one highly beneficial difference between Jeuveau™ and other neuromodulator injectables that prospective patients should be aware of is cost. Patients can have a Jeuveau™ treatment often for 20 to 30 percent less than the cost of a comparable Botox treatment, which makes the product very attractive for a variety of reasons. The cost enables individuals of all income levels to have the treatment and maintain regular follow-ups cost-effectively.
The lower cost of treatment can especially aid younger patients who wish to treat the symptoms they have but need to do so on a budget. Additionally, Jeuveau™’s cost-point makes preventative treatments available to more patients, so they can minimize and control potential problems before they require more substantial treatment. Jeuveau™ patients can avoid more expensive, time-consuming and invasive treatments as a result.
Am I a candidate for Jeuveau™?
Jeuveau™ has few contraindications and is an ideal solution for men and women of all ages and for most skin types. Patients interested in having Jeuveau™ should be in good overall health and have reasonable expectations about the results a Jeuveau™ treatment can provide.
Contraindications for Jeuveau™ include:
- Breathing problems
- Problems swallowing
- Speaking difficulties
- Allergies to botulin toxin products or other ingredients in Jeuveau™
- Nerve conditions such as ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome
Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also delay their Jeuveau™ treatment temporarily, but they may be good candidates for other skin rejuvenation treatments in the meantime.
What To Expect From Your Jeuveau™ Treatment
Jeuveau™ is a fast and convenient treatment that you can have at Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics during your lunch hour. You will not need to prepare for your treatment in any way. Your entire Jeuveau™ treatment will take only a few minutes and, afterward, you will not have any limitations on your activities; you may immediately return to work or your other daily plans.
Patients who have Jeuveau™ may experience some mild bruising and swelling where they have their injections; this is normal and temporary and will not keep you from your regular routine. In a few hours, these symptoms will naturally subside. After treatment, patients should avoid rubbing their treatment area for a few hours after their injections to prevent the migration of Jeuveau™ beyond the concern area. Jeuveau™ will remain in the treatment area if undisturbed.
How long does Jeuveau™ last?
Results from Jeuveau™ will develop quickly but not immediately. Most patients notice improvements at the site of treatment within 48 hours of their office visit, with full results apparent within one week. Most patients enjoy months of healthy and natural rejuvenation, which can be maintained indefinitely with regular touch-ups. Dr. Smith will recommend the ideal treatment cycle for your needs to ensure you continue to enjoy your outstanding results.
Who do I see for my Jeuveau™ consultation?
Jeuveau™ offers patients many advantages that other similar products can’t. The affordability of this effective treatment makes long-lasting rejuvenation available to more individuals than ever, and continuing your treatments with routine follow-ups is also much more cost-effective, as well, so you can always count on having a refreshed and relaxed look. Preventative treatments also can be enjoyed on their own or as a part of a comprehensive plan to stave off many early aging signs.
Whatever your goals, you can rely on Dr. Leslie Smith of Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics to obtain and maintain the level of facial rejuvenation you want. Dr. Smith can help create a course of treatment around your specific needs to treat the skin problems you have and prevent issues from occurring. Your skincare plan can include other treatments as well for whole-body rejuvenation, without invasive surgery.
