Jeuveau in Houston, Texas
Seeing lines is the hallmark of aging that we all dread. Expression-based wrinkles can form as early as your 20s and can be difficult to treat if they become deeper, stagnant lines. There’s no better way to treat and prevent wrinkles than with neurotoxin injections!
Jeuveau at Dr. Sharon Aesthetics, also known as “Newtox,” is the newest member of our neurotoxin offerings. Jeuveau is another muscle relaxant similar to Botox, serving the same purpose of preventing and softening dynamic wrinkles for a youthful appearance. This product uses prabotulismtoxinA, in contrast to the use of onabotulinumtoxinA used in Botox; however, they both provide the same effects, causing muscle weakness in wrinkle-forming areas.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is an injectable botulinum toxin that works by weakening muscles to prevent them from contracting and creating wrinkles. It can be injected into the forehead, around the eyes, the mouth, or anywhere else where you wish to soften lines and wrinkles. The treatment takes about 20 minutes, and the full results are typically visible two weeks after injections.
benefits of Jeuveau
The benefits of Jeuveau are similar to those of Botox, however, some patients have reported longer-lasting effects. Jeuveau has been proven to be safe and effective at relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles, such as frown lines between your eyebrows. It can also help prevent forehead lines from deepening over time.
Jeuveau is a new way to kiss those wrinkles goodbye here at Dr. Sharon Aesthetics, Houston, Texas! Preventing and treating the appearance of lines in a wide range of facial areas:
- Facial Lines
- Facial Wrinkles
- Vertical Frown Lines
- Lip Lines
- Crow’s Feet lines
- Bunny Lines
- Laugh Lines
- Large Jaw Muscles
- Facial Creases
- Glabellar Lines
- Drooping Eyelids
- Expression Lines
- Gummy Smile
How does Jeuveau work?
Like Botox, Jeuveau works by blocking nerve signals that cause facial muscles to contract. Because the wrinkle-forming muscles are relaxed, the overlying skin cannot fold and form lines and wrinkles. The result allows for a more relaxed appearance to the face; however, you will still be able to make natural expressions and will not be frozen.
During your treatment, optional numbing cream may be applied to sensitive areas prior to injection for your comfort; however, Jeaveau is well-tolerated and typically painless.
How long do results last?
Results from a single treatment can be expected to last up to 4 months before a maintenance treatment is needed. This is recommended to maintain the muscle relaxing effect and prevent future lines from forming in problem areas such as frown lines, and crow’s feet.
Some patients have reported effects lasting up to 5 months, longer than other botulinum toxin products, such as Botox Cosmetic and Dysport.
Am I a good candidate?
You are a great candidate for Jeuveau if you wish to reduce the appearance of expression-based wrinkles and prevent the formation of deeper lines. This cosmetic procedure is quick and easy, delivering maximum results in every session.
Injections of Jeuveau are well-suited for the prevention of the premature aging. Those with existing deeper lines may benefit from the addition of Dermal Fillers.
Jeuveau vs Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin
At Dr. Sharon Aesthetics, we carry a wide range of wrinkle-fighting injections to deliver a customized patient experience. While all these are botulinum toxin products, they differ in dilution and spread, making some injectables advantageous in different areas of the face.
Although these products deliver the same effect, they cannot be used interchangeably as this may increase the chances of unwanted side effects.
Is it safe?
Yes, Jeuveau injections are safe to use cosmetically and are FDA-approved. Serious side effects are not commonly reported, when correctly administered by an experienced injector.
Notify your injector of any medical conditions prior to your treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Although Jeuveau cosmetic injections are safe, some common side effects may include tenderness in the injection sites; however, this should subside within a day. Mild bruising may occur in some patients.
More serious side effects such as swelling, itching, pain, numbness, headache, dizziness, blurred vision, double vision, and allergic reaction, can occur; however, these symptoms are not common. If any of these occur, immediately contact your doctor or treatment provider.
