Both women and men who experience frown lines and deep furrows between the eyebrows now have a new, non-surgical option to address these common concerns. Jeuveau™ is an FDA-approved injectable solution designed to temporarily reduce lines and creases that can develop between the eyebrows in patients as early as their 20s, becoming even more prominent later in life. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Christopher Godek, MD and the experienced skin care professionals at the Personal Enhancement Center are pleased to be one of the first in the area to offer Jeuveau™, which is becoming known as the next generation’s BOTOX® Cosmetic. This effective injectable treatment can be an ideal way to create smoother skin and a more relaxed appearance in the upper face.
What Is Jeuveau™?
Jeuveau™, developed by the Evolus® corporation, is an injectable treatment designed to diminish the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows. The Jeuveau™ solution is composed of a purified version of botulinum toxin type A, which works to temporarily stop the contraction of facial muscles in the treatment area. This muscle contraction is what leads to the development of wrinkles and creases. Jeuveau™ is the first “aesthetic-only” neurotoxin injectable to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This treatment offers patients across a wide spectrum of ages the ability to effectively smooth away furrows between the brows with natural-looking results.
What Can Jeuveau™ Injections Do for Me?
One of the most prominent benefits of Jeuveau™ is its ability to diminish signs of severe and deep frown lines. These dark and noticeable creases commonly appear with facial expressions; however, at a certain point in life, they begin to appear even when an individual is not making an expression. This can yield an appearance that looks constantly angry, stressed, or tired. Jeuveau™ is designed to target the very muscles that create these furrows and give the skin a smoother, more refreshed look.
In addition to the cosmetic benefits of Jeuveau™, the treatment requires no surgery or extensive recovery periods. In fact, most patients are able to immediately get back to their normal routines. During your appointment with your injectable provider we will talk with you about your aesthetic goals and help you determine whether Jeuveau™ is an ideal option to address your concerns.
What Does the Jeuveau™ Treatment Process Involve?
Jeuveau™ treatments are performed in our office and the entire procedure usually only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. The Jeuveau™ solution will be delicately injected with a fine needle into the facial muscles targeted for treatment; a topical numbing agent can be applied to the skin to ensure that any potential discomfort is minimized.
Some degree of swelling and redness may be present after the injections; however, these effects are often very mild and should quickly fade. Most patients do not need a period of recovery following Jeuveau™ treatment.
How Long Do Jeuveau™ Results Last?
Jeuveau results are typically visible in 4-7 days, with full onset around two weeks post-treatment. In most cases, the results last at least three to four months. In fact, some individuals may experience results that last even longer than the average.
We are excited to bring this innovative new cosmetic enhancement option to our patients here in the Toms River and Wall, New Jersey area!
