Neurotoxin beauty treatments remain the most popular cosmetic non-invasive injection on the market. Ever since Botox was cleared for use, people adored the easy way to reduce fine lines and prevent them in the future. Jeuveau is the newest treatment to use neurotoxin to reduce fine lines, and we at The Kaplan Center are pleased to offer it to our patients.
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a Botox alternative that is also derived from botulinium toxin A. This injectable wrinkle reducer weighs the same as Botox, and can be used and stored in the exact same way. Unlike Botox, Jeuveau is only FDA-approved for cosmetic purposes, and is also known for being slightly more affordable.
Why Use Jeuveau Instead of Botox?
Cost aside, providers use Jeuveau because it’s simple to use and delivers similar results. Jeuveau’s purification process is slightly different and it’s made in small batches. That being said, there are no major differences between Botox and Jeuveau in terms of results or administration. In their clinical studies it has been reported to last up to 4 months in some patients, while Botox last 3 months as per their FDA label. Please keep in mind that individual results may vary by patient.
How Is Jeuveau Used?
A typical Jeuveau procedure takes only 15 minutes to do. In it, Dr. Kaplan will examine your face and determine how many syringes will be necessary to use. After that, they will create a map that will show where the Jeuveau will be injected. Then, a series of injections will be done targeting areas where your face has wrinkling.
Jeuveau, like other neurotoxin treatments, requires no downtime for recovery. As a result, it’s very popular among people who have little time for their beauty treatments.
When Will I See Results?
Generally speaking, people will start to feel the effects of Jeuveau hours after the injections are performed. Most people will start to see results in as little as 48 hours of the injection period.
How Does Jeuveau Work?
Jeuveau works by blocking the nerve receptors that tell muscles to contract. By forcibly relaxing your muscles, Jeuveau reduces the appearance of fine lines and softens wrinkles. The injectable treatment continues to stay in your dermis for up to four months.
Since you aren’t contracting your muscles after you use Jeuveau, the creation of new wrinkles or deepening of fine lines is also blunted. People who use it regularly tend to enjoy preventative perks as a result.
Where Can Jeuveau Be Used?
Jeuveau can be used anywhere that Botox is used for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Some of the more popular places to use Jeuveau include:
- Glabellar lines
- Laugh lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
Some people also pair Jeuveau with other treatments for added efficacy such as dermal fillers for static wrinkles such as smile and marionette lines.
Is Jeuveau Safe?
Jeuveau is absolutely safe. It was studied in a major clinical trial and found to be safe for use by the FDA.
How Long Does Jeuveau Last?
Jeuveau’s results will last anywhere from four to five months, depending on the person and the regions chosen. Typically, people will go back to get more Jeuveau three times times per year.
Who Can Use Jeuveau?
Anyone who is over the age of 18, has reasonable expectations in terms of results, and does not have an allergy to Botox is a good candidate for Jeuveau.
