Aging may make you wiser, but it doesn’t do any favors for your skin. That’s where cosmetic injectables come in and throw you that much-needed lifesaver.
At Radiant Divine Medical Spa in Avon, OH, we are proud to offer Jeuveau. This cosmetic injectable will minimize the appearance of aging in the upper half of the face so that you can reclaim your youth, increase your confidence, and say goodbye to the fine lines and wrinkles.
Where Can Jeuveau Be Used?
Jeuveau specializes in treating the lines and wrinkles that form between the eyebrows and around the eyes. It is FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines, which is the technical term for frown lines. It can also erase crow’s feet that form at the outer corners of the eyes. If crow’s feet and frown lines have become prominent yet unwanted features defining your face, this injectable can erase those lines and restore your youth.
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a cosmetic injectable that works similar to Botox. It has been nicknamed Newtox and has become a popular option for those who struggle with frown lines and crow’s feet. It contains botulinum toxin A as its primary ingredient. It works by relaxing the muscles in the forehead and around the eyes that cause frown lines and crow’s feet by creating repetitive, dynamic movements.
Dynamic wrinkles form from dynamic movements of the face over time. Aging causes the body to decrease collagen and elastin production, which leads to a weakening of the skin’s structure. Dynamic movements continue, but the skin cannot respond the same way, and, thus, dynamic wrinkles form.
How Does It Work?
Once your injector administers this injectable into your muscles, it begins working immediately, though visible results may take a few days. It works by preventing your nerve signals from communicating with your facial muscles.
After treatment, the dynamic muscles that caused your frown lines or crow’s feet can no longer flex or contract, and as a result, the skin can rest from repetitive expressive movements. The result is smooth, wrinkle-free skin that lasts for several months.
Is It Safe?
This cosmetic injectable is FDA-approved to treat the lines and wrinkles that form on the upper half of the face due to dynamic, repetitive facial movements. It is a safe and effective choice for those who suffer from frown lines and crow’s feet, especially those whose lines have affected their confidence in their appearance. Clinical studies have shown this product to be a safe way to combat aging.
Furthermore, this injectable requires extensive training and certification two administer it. You can rest assured that when you choose our office for your treatment, you will be safe in the hands of skilled injectors who are experienced in administering this cosmetic injectable. They know the ins and outs of injectables and are skilled in the art of facial anatomy. They know exactly how much product to use and exactly where to inject it.
Will My Results Look Natural?
Another benefit of this cosmetic injectable is that it does not change the way the rest of your face moves. You will still be able to express, but those expressions will be softer and more subtle. The goal of Jeuveau is to smooth pre-existing wrinkles, keep your wrinkles from deepening over time, and help prevent the development of new wrinkles. Once you undergo treatment, you can expect to look more rested, youthful, yet completely natural.
Most people around you will not be able to tell that you underwent a cosmetic treatment, but they may comment on your results and compliment your appearance. You will look like a more youthful, rested, and improved version of yourself, but you will still look like you.
How Long Does It Take To Work?
Our patients love this particular injectable because not only is it effective, but it delivers quick results. While results do vary among patients, most begin to see a positive change in the appearance of the wrinkles within 48 to 72 hours post-treatment.
The severity of your wrinkles, the state of your skin, and your age all play a part in how quickly this injectable works. However, you can rest assured that when you do undergo treatment, you will get results. Best and final results appear within four to seven days of an initial injection.
How Is Newtox Different from Botox?
Newtox is similar to Botox, but one of the main differences between these two is the rate at which results appear. Jeuveau delivers results a little bit quicker than Botox. Most patients experience Newtox results three to five times faster than they do Botox. Botox injections can take up to 13 days to deliver the best and final results, but with Newtox, final results may only take up to one week to appear.
Another difference between Newtox and Botox is that Newtox undergoes a unique process during formulation. It is a highly purified protein that doesn’t contain extra additives. Additionally, Botox is FDA-approved to treat several areas of the face, but this cosmetic injectable specializes in one primary region of the face.
Can I Make My Results Appear Faster?
There are some things that you can do to make your Newtox results show up faster. Exercising the muscles in your specific treatment area can help your results appear sooner. Moving these muscles and massaging them post-treatment will help deliver the product to the targeted muscles faster so that you can enjoy a wrinkle-free appearance quicker. All it takes is 10 minutes a day of exercising these muscles, and you will see your results appear even sooner.
Experts recommend performing three sets of 40 repetitions in your treatment area. By doing so, you are essentially giving your facial muscles a workout. You can set a timer to ensure that you give yourself 10 minutes of rest between each of the three sets. Performing these movements should make a noticeable difference in the appearance of your treatment area that much sooner.
How Long Do Results Last?
Not only does the product deliver quick results, but it also delivers long-lasting results. Most patients experience smooth, wrinkle-free skin for five to six months in total. Other similar products typically only deliver results that last three to four months. This injectable is a popular choice among patients because of its longevity. It does not lose efficacy after multiple treatments.
Can I Make My Results Last Longer?
There are some ways that you can positively impact the length of your results post-treatment to ensure long-lasting results. By following the recommended aftercare instructions and caring for your skin, you can rest assured that you will get beautiful results.
Follow the Aftercare Instructions
Adhering to the aftercare instructions, including avoiding heat, sun exposure, and facial pressure within the first 24 hours, will help ensure that you get beautiful results and maintain those results for the longest amount of time. Heat can negatively impact your results by promoting inflammation below the skin surface. Additionally, sun exposure will negatively impact your results since it promotes skin damage and premature aging.
You should also avoid laying on your back for an extended period to protect your treatment sites from pressure and gravitational forces. Once your treatment is over, refrain from makeup application if possible. Cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser and avoid products that irritate your skin with harsh ingredients post-treatment.
Schedule Regular Treatments
You can also maintain your results by scheduling follow-up treatments as soon as you notice a change in your results. Many patients can maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin by scheduling their follow-up appointments in advance. The sooner you come in for a follow-up treatment once your results begin to wear off, the longer you can maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
What Happens During a Treatment?
Before you begin treatment, you will undergo an initial consultation at our office to confirm that you are a candidate for this injectable. We will discuss your medical and health history during this consultation, review any medications and supplements you may be taking, and discuss any experience you have had with neurotoxins.
Once we confirm that you are not allergic to the ingredients in this injectable and that it is the right choice to help treat the signs of aging on your face, we will schedule your injection appointment. Injection appointments are quick but very satisfying. You can walk in knowing that you’ll be well on your way to beautiful, smooth, wrinkle-free skin when you walk out.
If possible, arrive with a clean face. If you cannot, your injector will clean your treatment sites before administering injections. We will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure that you don’t feel a thing during the injection process. To begin, your injector will administer a series of injections in the muscles around your eyes or forehead, depending on what areas you choose to treat. Appointments only take 10 to 20 minutes, and then you’ll be free to go about your day.
How Should I Prepare for Treatment?
Once you schedule your injectable appointment, you won’t have to follow a long list of instructions to prepare. During your initial consultation, we will review any medications and supplements you are currently taking and instruct you regarding which, if any, you should temporarily avoid pre-treatment.
Typically, we advise that patients avoid sleep aids, blood-thinning medications, and supplements like fish oil and anti-inflammatory medications. We also typically recommend that patients avoid alcohol and tobacco consumption pre-treatment to get the best results.
Are There Any Aftercare Instructions?
There isn’t any downtime associated with this treatment, but there are some ways that you can ensure the best results post-treatment. Avoiding heat, sun exposure, and side or stomach sleeping will ensure that this product effectively targets your treatment site and delivers the best results possible.
We also advise patients to avoid strenuous exercise 24 hours post-treatment to maintain stable blood pressure and avoid too much blood flow and heat to the face.
Am I a Candidate?
The best candidates for Jeuveau are men and women over the age of 21 who have developed lines and wrinkles between their eyebrows or the outer corners of their eyes. This injectable treats dynamic wrinkles, not static wrinkles. It will not add volume; that is the job of a dermal filler. This injectable will target the muscles that are responsible for dynamic movements that lead to dynamic wrinkles.
Ideal candidates should have realistic expectations about this treatment and its results, are willing to adhere to the preparation and aftercare instructions, and understand that this product is a temporary solution to aging requiring a commitment to regular maintenance appointments to maintain results.
