Have you looked in the mirror recently and noticed your frown lines are more pronounced? Are there lines in between your eyebrows and around your eyes? While this is a normal part of the facial aging process, you don’t have to live with it. These lines and wrinkles can be quickly and effectively treated with the popular new injectable called Jeuveau.
Often referred to as the ‘Elevens’, the glabellar lines are vertical and they usually develop because of frowning, scowling, or focusing while listening or reading. In February of 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Jeuveau, a botulinum toxin type A, for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines. Because muscle contraction causes wrinkless, the injection of Jeuveau gradually causes muscles to weaken, which in turn smooths out the lines on your forehead. Generally, you can expect results to last anywhere from three (3) to four (4) months. It is not a permanent solution, but a maintenance procedure for non-surgical wrinkles and frown lines.
There is no reason to have your forehead, brow, and upper eyelids add years to your facial appearance. Most people start seeing the first signs of facial aging around their mid-20’s. As we age, the movement of facial muscles creates wrinkles on the face. The use of Jeuveau is safe for people younger and older as a preventative treatment and to reverse wrinkles, creases, and frown lines.
You don’t have to wait any longer when you see fine lines appearing on your face. Jeaveau, which Dr. McCracken injects into the facial muscles, will help to reduce facial wrinkles. Jeaveau is a neurotoxin like Botox, and is injected between your eyebrows or what some people refer to as 11’s. It also is injected into other areas of the face, such as the forehead lines or the corners of your eyes to stop your muscles from forming those pesky crow’s feet. In addition to proactively treating wrinkles, Jeuveau can also smooth out the older lines that get more profound with time.
Jeuveau got its name from the French word “nouveau" which translates in English to be recent or modern. Jeaveau was so strictly tested that the clinical study included over 2,000 patients. The FDA approved Jeuveau because it passed two (2) clinical trials in the U.S. with double-blind placebo studies.
Before Jeuveau, the only options to smooth out wrinkles and lines were Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin. Jeuveau was developed only for aesthetic purposes.
Jeuveau is the first 900 kDa molecule neurotoxin introduced since Botox came onto the market. The 900 kDa is the gold standard in neurotoxins for the treatment of wrinkles. Jeuveau is manufactured with proprietary Hi-Pure technology.
Jeuveau is injected into the muscles to temporarily relax them, temporarily reducing facial wrinkles such as your glabellar lines. These are the frown lines right between your eyebrows. Since it is a neurotoxin, it temporarily relaxes those muscles allowing them to smooth and give you a rejuvenated appearance.
Not to worry, if you have used Botox in the past, Jeuveau is an injectable that can be substituted in its place without any issues. They are essentially the same treatments, with Jeuveau being less costly than Botox.
In September I had an accident which vertically split my upper right eyelid. Dr. McCracken’s office made room to see me on an emergency basis and scheduled me for surgery a few days later…
