Facial lines and wrinkles can make you look older than you feel. Neuromodulator injections are an excellent option for reducing facial wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Frown lines, crow’s feet, worry lines and other wrinkles can be eliminated with neuromodulator treatment. At pēkomd cosmetic surgery center, we offer Jeuveau® injections for wrinkle treatment at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
Jeuveau is a neuromodulator that is similar to Botox®. Like Botox, Jeuveau’s main ingredient is botulinum toxin type A. Injecting Jeuveau into targeted muscles that create dynamic lines can relax the muscles to smooth away certain lines and wrinkles. The 11s between the eyebrows can disappear, as well as horizontal lines across the forehead.
For some patients, Jeuveau is a better choice than Botox. Patients that have poor reactions or have built up tolerance to Botox may use Jeuveau as an alternative treatment. While both use botulinum toxin type A, the formulation is different, and some patients may have better results with Jeuveau.
Frown Line Treatment
Jeuveau is the newest neurotoxin cosmetic that is FDA-approved for the treatment of frown lines. Botox, Dysport® and Xeomin® were the first neuromodulators, and all offer similar benefits for relaxing muscles that cause lines or wrinkles on the brow. Jeuveau injections are performed like Botox, with the same benefits for frown lines and some other dynamic lines.
Jeuveau treatment can be completed in about 15-20 minutes, and you can expect results to be noticeable in the week following your procedure. The most common side effects are minor swelling or bruising from the injections. Most patients have results that last close to four months before the targeted muscles begin to respond to nerve signals again. To maintain results, repeated treatments a few times each year are needed.
If you have used Botox in the past with good results, but it no longer seems to give you the same level of frown line treatment, Jeuveau may be an excellent alternative.
