Jeuveau is an FDA-approved injectable used to treat frown lines.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is an injectable neuromodulator, similar to BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin. This treatment is approved by the FDA to treat moderate-to-severe frown lines (glabellar lines) by temporarily paralyzing the underlying facial muscles. This action allows your facial muscles to entirely rest, which results in the reduction of frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and more.
How does Jeuveau work?
Injectable neurotoxins smooth wrinkles by temporarily freezing the underlying facial muscles. Jeuveau blocks nerve impulses to the muscles, which selectively weakens muscular contractions. Facial wrinkles are caused by the repeated expressions that we make over time (smiling, frowning, laughing, etc.). After several months, your muscles will slowly regain their full of strength of contraction, and more treatments will be needed to maintain your results.
What can I expect during my appointment?
During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Rubin will create a custom treatment plan. Dr. Rubin will assess the movement and strength of your facial muscles. This assessment will help her determine the amount and location of the injections.
During treatments, a series of small shots are injected into the targeted muscles. A precise amount of product is carefully placed into each site for maximum, lasting results. The entire procedure takes 10-15 minutes, and there is no downtime. A topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort during your treatment.
What should I expect from the results?
You will begin to feel the effects 2-7 days after the treatment.* Your results will depend on your metabolism, muscle strength, and how active those muscles are. Some clients will metabolize the product very quickly and will, therefore, need injections more often. The stronger your muscles are, the more product you will need.
Typically, results last a few months.* Since Jeuveau is temporary, it is best to come in every 3-4 months to maintain your results. We recommend scheduling your maintenance appointments before your treatment wears off completely.
