Have you started to develop lines that just won’t go away? Thankfully, Infinity MedSpa, located in Sudbury, Massachusetts, carries Jeuveau. Jeuveau is an FDA-approved, non-invasive injectable designed to improve the look of frown lines. As you age, your skin naturally loses elasticity and tone thanks to a natural decrease in collagen and elastin. This decrease often speeds up through exposure to the sun, which can break down the connective fibers within your skin. Jeuveau can help erase wrinkles without the heaviness or stiffness that other products, such as Botox, create. Here’s a deeper look into how Jeuveau can remedy some of the lines around your eyes and eyebrows.
What is Jeuveau & What Is It Used For?
Jeuveau, like BOTOX, uses purified botulinum toxin to temporarily relax the small muscle groups that cause dynamic wrinkles. When these compounds are injected into muscle tissue, they block nerve signals so that the brain can no longer instruct treated muscles to move. It’s also sometimes called the new Botox or “Newtox” for short because it’s the same active ingredient used in original Botox Cosmetic injections. This botulinum toxin type A injection is used in the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Glabellar lines are the pesky frown lines that occur between the eyebrows. When left untreated, these lines can become deeper over the years. Treating these lines with Jeuveau can prevent them from deepening over time. Jeuveau is also used to treat the horizontal lines on the forehead and crow’s feet.
What Causes Wrinkling?
If you want to understand how Jeuveau works, then it helps to learn about why your skin wrinkles in the first place. There is no singular factor that contributes to changes in the texture and appearance of your skin. It’s a combination of things such as aging, repeating facial movements, loss of proteins within your skin, and exposure to UV rays. Your skin is comprised of protein collagen, providing your skin with its firmness. As you age, you lose large amounts of it, causing your skin to wrinkle more as the muscles underneath move.
Am I A Good Candidate For Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a great choice of treatment for healthy adults of all skin types between the ages of 20-65.
When you meet with our team of professionals, we will examine your skin and discuss possible treatment options with you. If you’re seeking an injectable instead of a surgical option to treat the appearance of wrinkles, this may be the solution for you. However, if you have previously shown bad reactions to other botulinum toxin type A products like Botox and Dysport in the past, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, then this may not be right for you. Whatever your anti-aging goals, we will help you every step of the way in your private consultation and determine if Jeuveau is right for you.
How Much Jeuveau Is Injected?
Jeuveau is measured by units and a treatment for a single area can rage from 10-20 units. A typical treatment for all three areas of the face, forehead furrows, frown lines, and crow’s feet is 50 units. By measuring in units, rather than areas, we truly can customize each treatment to each face. One person may require 15 units, while another will require 35 units.
Is Jeuveau Safe?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Jeuveau for the treatment of wrinkles in February of 2019.
In clinical research trials involving more than 2100 patients globally, versus the market leader Botox, Jeuveau treatments provided comparable results. These results had no reported serious drug-related adverse events.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Before treatment, a local anesthetic is applied to the skin to numb the area. This helps to mitigate any potential discomfort a patient may experience. Once the area is numb, your provider uses a small needle to inject Jeuveau into your muscles between your eyebrows. This prevents frown lines from developing. After the injection, your face is cleaned again and you are able to resume your daily activities. The entire treatment process takes roughly thirty minutes, and the recovery process is very light.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
After receiving your Jeuveau injections, you can resume your daily activities immediately.
For most patients Jeuveau takes effect within 2-3 days post-treatment, otherwise, results are usually visible in about a week. Initially, you may experience minor bruising at the injection site that will dissipate over time.
After your Jeuveau treatment, we recommend that our patients avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for 24 hours following treatment. You should also keep from touching your face for the first 4 hours; no massages, facials, or makeup application for a full day after your injection.
When Will I see Results?
Patients typically start seeing results from Jeuveau within two to seven days after their first treatment. However, it’s important to remember that results vary from patient to patient.
Two separate trials reported by the FDA Trusted Source found that 67 percent and 71 percent of people saw significant improvements after receiving these injections. This is compared to a 1 percent improvement reported in the placebo groups.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Injections of Jeuveau typically last 3 months and sometimes longer. However, for some patients, their outcome may remain for a more extended period, while others will diminish quicker. In addition, people with a greater muscle mass find the product will metabolize faster, meaning they will need another session sooner than those with less muscle mass. We can also schedule your re-touch appointment before your Jeuveau treatment wears off, so there is no need to worry about returning wrinkles.
