What is Jeuveau®?
Jeuveau® is a neuromodulator similar to Botox® and Dysport. Jeuveau® is made of prabotulinumtoxinA. This helps to smooth out the lines and wrinkles on the upper face while also preventing future lines and wrinkles.
This treatment, when done by a trained specialist, will provide you with natural results that won’t inhibit your normal facial expressions.
How Does Jeuveau® Work?
It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals that cause the facial muscles to contract, causing wrinkles and lines. During a consultation with Dr. Collins, he will go over your skin care goals and examine the face. For the treatment, he will pick specific points to inject Jeuveau® in order to achieve your best results. This process overall takes about twenty minutes to complete.
Who is a Candidate for Jeuveau®?
Candidates for Jeuveau® must be at least 18 years of age or older. Most people choose to get Jeuveau® when they start to experience some early signs of facial aging. This could be frown lines, crow’s feet, or forehead lines. This is a great treatment if you wish to improve your facial wrinkles, but do not wish to undergo surgery. Some patients may use this procedure in combination with other treatments or to help prolong results of a previous treatment. Dr. Collins will make sure that Jeuveau® is right for you during your personalized consultation. He will lay out all of your options depending on the type of change you desire.
Results from Jeuveau® Treatment
The Jeuveau® treatment is great because it doesn’t require any downtime or recovery. Patients are able to return to normal daily activities and work right away. It is normal to experience some mild swelling, redness and bruising, but this should subside within a few hours. You will begin to notice a change from Jeuveau® within a week of treatment with the maximum results after two weeks. Most patients enjoy their Jeuveau® results for 4-6 months, at this point a touch-up session is required if you want to keep your refreshed appearance.
