New Visage is excited to welcome a new player in the wrinkle reducing game to our scope of services. We are now offering Jeuveau, which is an FDA approved injectable treatment that offers improvement to the appearance of mild to severe lines in the face.
How does Jeuveau work?
Upon injection, Jeuveau works by blocking nerves and the target muscle from communicating, thus eliminating the risk for wrinkles to deepen or form. Jeuveau works similarly to other facial wrinkle reducing tactics such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. It is a new brand to the market that is used to treat, manage, and prevent the appearance of moderate to severe facial lines. There is minimal discomfort and patients can expect the feeling of Jeuveau to feel like a small pinch or an acupuncture treatment.
What areas does Jeuveau treat?
Jeuveau treats a variety of areas in the face including the forehead, crow’s feet, kissers or smokers’ lines, frown lines, teeth grinding and neck bands. A recent study found Jeuveau to be effective at treating the glabellar lines, also known as the straight lines that form between the eyebrows. Jeuveau can also be used in the underarm to help treat excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis.
Timeline for Jeuveau
Once having the Jeuveau treatment done, patients often see an improvement in lines and creases in as few as 2-3 days with the final outcome usually appearing within 7-10 days. Patients can expect the longevity of Jeuveau to last from around three to six months, although the length of duration for Jeuveau’s effect is dependent upon a few factors. Everyone has different muscle mass and metabolism, which can affect how long the treatment lasts. Those with greater muscle mass can metabolize the drug faster. Additionally, more units will guarantee greater and longer lasting results. The location of where the treatment takes place can also impact length of effectiveness.
