Jeuveau® by Evolus™ is a newer injectable muscle relaxer treatment that is FDA-approved for improving the appearance of active frown lines (glabellar lines). These vertical creases tend to develop between the eyebrows over time, due to repeated muscle contractions caused by facial expressions. As frown lines become deeper, they can cause a sad or angry appearance, even when the face is in a relaxed state. Jeuveau can also be used off-label to treat your forehead and crow’s feet active wrinkle lines. Jeuveau, also referred to as #NEWTOX, is an alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic that helps smooth frown lines for a younger-looking facial appearance.
What Are the Benefits of Jeuveau?
As a neuromodulator, Jeuveau works by preventing your nerves from signaling the targeted muscles to contract. This helps maintain smoother skin between the eyebrows for a more refreshed appearance. Major benefits of Jeuveau injections include the following:
- Improvement in moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines) in adults
- No longer having noticeable furrows between the eyebrows that create an upset look
- Alternative option to products like BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®
- May also be used off-label to treat other areas such as the forehead and crow’s feet lines
- Ability to resume your normal schedule after treatment since no or little downtime is required
How Does the Jeuveau Treatment Work?
Jeuveau is composed of a purified form of botulinum toxin type A that is exclusively designed for aesthetic purposes. During treatment the liquid is injected into the target area using a very fine needle. Although discomfort is minimal for most patients, our office offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for those who are needle shy, which helps to provide a pain-free injectable process. The entire Jeuveau treatment usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete. Temporary side effects like mild redness and swelling may occur immediately after treatment, but these should quickly fade. You can return to your normal activities after leaving our office, with little to no downtime needed but we advise avoiding massaging the areas treated and avoiding strenuous exercise until the next day.
