Jeuveau® is an injectable formula that has been developed and FDA-approved exclusively for cosmetic use. At Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery in Greenwood and Carmel, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Mark M. Hamilton, MD, FACS, is pleased to offer this safe and effective Botox® alternative to residents living in and around Indianapolis, Indiana.
What Is Jeuveau®?
Jeuveau® is an injectable cosmetic product used to address frown lines between the eyes, otherwise known as glabellar lines. Glabellar lines form over time due to repeated muscle movements in the face. Jeaveau® relaxes these muscles, smoothing out frown lines for a softer and more youthful appearance. Plus, unlike Botox®, which has many clinical applications, Jeuveau® is designed exclusively for cosmetic use and the treatment of frown lines. That’s why many people are calling Jeuveau® “newtox”!
What are the Benefits of Jeuveau®?
Jeuveau® may be a nice option for you if you want to:
- Temporarily lessen the appearance of frown lines.
- Look younger and have softer, smoother skin.
- Rejuvenate the appearance without surgery.
How Does Jeuveau® Work?
Jeuveau® is an injectable formula composed of a purified botulinum toxin. This is the same ingredient that Botox® and many other reputable injectables are based on. When injected into the facial muscles, the Jeuveau® formula blocks nerve signals that would cause these muscles to contract. As a result, the muscles relax, and the appearance of frown lines will gradually fade.
How Is Jeuveau® Administered?
In some cases, Jeuveau® is administered after a local anesthetic has been injected into the treatment areas. However, many patients find the treatment comfortable enough to forego the local anesthetic. The Jeuveau® treatment is injected into the facial muscles in and around the area between the eyes. The exact number and location of these injections will vary based on the severity of the wrinkles. The injection process takes only a few minutes, making Jeuveau® a quick and convenient treatment. The process is often not uncomfortable enough that patients feel the need to request it. A nurse injector will use an ultrafine hypodermic needle to deliver Botox® into the muscles of your face. How many injections you receive depends on how many wrinkles and lines you want to be treated and their severity. For most patients, the benefits of this in-office procedure will last between three and six months before wearing off. At this time, patients normally return for another treatment.
What Can I Expect After Receiving Jeuveau® Injections?
Common side effects from Jeuveau® injections include swelling, bruising and tenderness in the treatment area. The extent of these effects will vary by patient, but they typically subside within a few days of treatment. The results from your Jeuveau® injections will become visible within a week, after the Jeuveau® formula has fully taken effect in the body. The results from Jeuveau® typically last between 3 and 6 months, after which point additional treatments can be received to maintain the results.
