Jeuveau, also referred to as “newtox” is the latest competitor to Botox®, adding another option when it comes to smoothing out your fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Ricardo Mejia offers Jeuveau treatment to patients in the Jupiter, FL area.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a neuromodulator injectable similar to Botox and Dysport. Jeuveau is composed of prabotuliniumtoxinA and works by temporarily blocking the signals that tell the facial muscles to contract. This leads to fewer fine lines and wrinkles in the upper face that are caused or worsened by facial expression. Jeuveau is not permanent, but can lead to long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
Who is a Candidate for Jeuveau?
Like other injectables, Jeuveau offers a nonsurgical solution to looking younger. When placed into areas where fine lines and wrinkles are present, patients can expect smoother, younger-looking skin in just a few days, without any required downtime. The most common areas treated with Jeuveau are frown lines between the brows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes. These are some of the first signs of aging that occur, and do not require a surgical procedure, making a nonsurgical injectable like Jeuveau a great solution. The formula is also more cost-effective than other neuromodulators like Botox. Dr. Mejia can meet with you to determine if Jeuveau is the right rejuvenating formula for you.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Prior to treatment with Jeuveau, the skin will be cleansed and topical numbing cream will be applied to maximize your comfort. A small amount of Jeuveau will then be placed in the target areas around the eyes, forehead, and brows using a very thin needle. The injection process is typically quick, lasting about 10-20 minutes.
Recovery and Results from Jeuveau
After treatment with Jeuveau, there is no required downtime, so you can get right back to your regular routine. Results are not immediate, and you may notice some mild swelling, redness, and bruising for several hours after treatment. You can begin to notice the results of Jeuveau in about 5-7 days, with maximum results present after 2 weeks. After this time, you can enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin with fewer wrinkles. These results have proven to last for about 3-4 months before a touch-up session is required.
