What Is Jeuveau®?
Jeuveau® (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is your premier FDA approved treatment for stopping lines and wrinkles in their tracts. This new treatment is injected into the facial muscles to effectively treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Stubborn lines between your eyebrows (glabellar lines) are hard to mask and can make you appear older. Jeuveau® softens and smooths your facial muscles to bring back that youthful appearance and lasts up to 6 months.
At the Glow Aesthetic Center, our expertly trained clinicians inject the neurotoxin made by Jeuveau® to paralyze the muscles in the face causing them to smooth out, making you appear younger. Jeuveau® is a new treatment that uses updated technology and state of the art facilities to deliver effective and fast-acting results. This treatment eliminates frown lines to help you regain your youthful appearance.
What Are the Advantages of Jeuveau®?
Jeuveau® is recommended for individuals who would like to lessen the appearance of vertical lines and wrinkles, especially in between your eyebrows (glabellar lines).
Jeuveau® utilizes a different purification and drying process than other treatments. Jeuveau® vacuum technology reduces the likelihood of damaging the botulinum neurotoxin while being manufactured. This entails that the neurotoxin may be more effective while combating wrinkles and lines.
Jeuveau® is great for individuals who wish to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Jeuveau® is especially effective for lines between your eyebrows and is FDA approved to treat migraines, adult spasticity, and cervical dystonia.
Jeuveau® is minimally invasive and results can be seen within a couple of days. Patients will notice lines and wrinkles becoming less visible as their face smoothes and softens.
Jeuveau® requires no downtime to heal unlike other surgical procedures.
Jeuveau® is a safe and effective treatment that temporarily paralyzes muscles within the treatment area. Patients can schedule another appointment once the neurotoxin wears off for best results.
Our certified clinicians apply an anesthetic before your treatment session to lessen any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
Before Your Next Jeuveau® Treatment:
The results of your Jeuveau® injection(s) last about three months. If it is your first injection, if a long period of time has passed since your last injection, or if your facial muscles are especially strong, your results may wear off more quickly
Patients who consistently receive their Jeuveau® injections and/or those with smaller or weaker facial muscles can space their injections by four or five months, sometimes more
To ensure the best result, schedule your next Jeuveau® appointment in about three months so your results do not wear off
Jeuveau® is not used in pregnant or breastfeeding patients. It is your responsibility to inform our staff of your health status and to cancel or reschedule your appointment as needed
If you have a social or work commitment immediately following your scheduled treatment that will interfere with your recovery time, please reschedule your appointment
A week before your treatment, stop all medications and supplements that can increase bleeding at the injection sites as well as swelling and bruising of the treatment area. These include NSAIDs and fish oil.
24 hours before treatment, avoid alcoholic drinks because alcohol can thin the blood, causing complications
Eat a healthy snack before your treatment to lessen the chance of lightheadedness during the procedure, and avoid caffeine
Come to your appointment with your face freshly washed and with no makeup
After Your Treatment:
Right after the injection, you may feel or see small nodules at the injection site. Do not massage the nodules in. They will dissipate in just a few minutes
Following your injections, your skin may feel dry and itchy. This is a result of the clinician cleaning the injection site with alcohol before treatment. You may use Vaseline® or other moisturizer to ease these symptoms
For 24 hours, stay away from direct high heat
You may experience a mild headache. This is normal. The headaches are not due to anything in Jeuveau® itself but because of the actual injection of the needle into your skin. They will usually pass within 36 hours. Over-the-counter pain medications can treat them, but do not take aspirin because it thins the blood, which can cause complications
You may note small bruises. These will disappear in a few days. You may cover them with makeup if you desire
