How Quickly Does Jeuveau Start Working?

In the world of aesthetics, one name that has been making waves recently is Jeuveau, sometimes called “Newtox.” This innovative treatment has swiftly become a sought-after solution for those eager to combat the signs of aging, particularly fine lines, and wrinkles. At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in the Baltimore, MD area, we know this is a great treatment and one worth talking about.

How Quickly Does Jeuveau Start Working?

Most individuals who opt for this treatment start witnessing noticeable changes within two to three days of the procedure. However, it’s important to note that factors such as the strength of facial muscles and the patient’s metabolic rate can cause some variation in this timeline. The maximum effects of the treatment are typically seen around seven to ten days post-treatment.

Factors Influencing the Speed of Your Results

Although Jeuveau typically yields results within days, individual factors can influence the speed of outcomes. For instance, a person with a robust metabolic rate might experience the results faster than someone with a slower metabolism. Likewise, the severity of wrinkles, skin elasticity, and precision of application can affect the treatment’s speed, as can the amount of product you need.

The Longevity of Treatment

This product’s swift action does not compromise longevity. On average, the results of the treatment are maintained for about three to four months. To keep the youthful appearance intact, regular follow-up treatments are recommended. You’ll also want to take good care of your skin, stay well hydrated, and eat a diet full of healthy nutrients that support the skin.

How It Works

Jeuveau is a type of neuromodulator, much like its counterparts BOTOX and XEOMIN. It works by hindering muscle contractions that lead to the formation of wrinkles. It achieves this by interrupting the transmission of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. Consequently, the overlying skin appears smoother and more youthful.

Precise Application

The precision with which this treatment is applied plays a key role in its effectiveness and the speed of results. This precision is crucial because the product needs to reach the motor nerve endings within the muscles to work effectively.

The Ripple Effect

When the targeted muscles are relaxed post treatment, the skin lying over them becomes smoother. This is because the constant muscle movements that caused the skin to crease and form wrinkles are now muted. Consequently, with the muscle under relaxation, existing lines appear softer, and the creation of new ones is prevented.

Dermal Fillers and Neuromodulators: What’s the Difference?

In contrast to neuromodulators, dermal fillers work on an entirely different principle. While neuromodulators target muscle activity to smooth out wrinkles, dermal fillers focus on adding volume to the skin. Composed primarily of substances like hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the skin, fillers are used to restore lost volume, smooth lines, soften creases, and enhance facial contours. They directly fill in areas of the face that may have lost volume or elasticity due to aging, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

How Do the Treatments Compare?

Jeuveau typically starts to work within two to three days, while the effects of dermal fillers are often immediate, as the added volume shows up right after the injection. However, it can take a couple of weeks for the filler to fully integrate into the skin.

In terms of longevity, dermal fillers often outlast neuromodulators. While the effects of Newtox usually last for three to four months, many dermal fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the specific product and the area of the face where it is applied.

Newtox and dermal fillers have distinct applications, however. While Newtox is primarily used for lines and wrinkles caused by muscle movements, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, dermal fillers are used to fill in static wrinkles (lines present even when your face is at rest), augment lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, and remove or diminish shadow or wrinkle under the eyes.

Complementary Roles in Aesthetic Dermatology

Despite their differences, Newtox and dermal fillers can work synergistically to provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation. For example, a patient might opt for a neuromodulator to address dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, while using a dermal filler to add volume to the cheeks or lips. Dr. Rodney’s in-depth understanding of facial anatomy, aesthetic principles, and product characteristics allows her to create balanced, natural-looking results using a combination of these treatments.
