Frown lines and wrinkles across our forehead and round our eyes can cause us to look older than we really are. However, since the skin is particularly thin here, it is very easy for it to be affected by facial movements and expressions and develop signs of aging. These can be frustrating, causing us to feel self-conscious or even embarrassed about our appearance. Whilst cosmetics can help to mask some imperfections, only cosmetic procedures can truly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. One of the newest and most effective cosmetic treatments is known as Jeuveau and we are delighted to be able to offer this effective and transformative procedure here at our clinic in Deerfield Beach, FL.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a newly-developed injectable that shares a number of similarities with Botox and is the only new brand of neurotoxin to enter the U.S. cosmetic surgery market during the last ten years.
Like Botox, Jeuveau works by freezing the muscles in the area that it is injected into. In doing this, it prevents them from contracting when you move your face and make a different expression. This means that the overlying skin is also prevented from moving and contracting, eliminating the possibility of the creation of lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Jeuveau is recommended for use in the forehead area and around the eyes. This enables the prevention of frown lines that run horizontally, as well as the deep frown lines that form between the eyebrows that are known as glabellar lines.
The Jeuveau procedure
The procedure for Jeuveau is exactly the same as it is for any other injectable procedure, including Botox. The appointment, which usually lasts less than half an hour, is carried out in the comfort of our offices. Many patients find the ultra-fine needle that is used to administer the neurotoxin does not cause any discomfort. Nevertheless, it may be possible for you to have a topical anesthetic if you desire.
Once you are settled into position, our team will inject small amounts of Jeuveau into the planned areas where the neurotoxin will start to work immediately. You may be left with a few, very small red marks on your face where the needle has been placed, but these fade within a few hours. At the end of your appointment, you will be able to return to your work or other day to day activities with no need to take any downtime.
How long do the effects of Jeuveau last?
As with other injectables, the effects of Jeuveau are only temporary. Exactly how long they will last can vary between patients, but typically most patients will enjoy between three and six months of clinical longevity before an additional treatment is required.
