What Is Jeuveau Used for?
At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, we offer a popular neuromodulator called Jeuveau to help our Baltimore, MD, area patients achieve their cosmetic goals. Like other similar cosmetic injectables designed to help patients achieve anti-aging goals, this product can smooth expression lines and help patients enjoy youthful-looking skin for several months at a time.
What Is Jeuveau Used For?
Jeuveau is an anti-aging injectable that is FDA-approved to treat frown lines that form between the eyebrows. When administered into different area muscles, it will cause those muscles to relax to soften and, in some cases, even eliminate frown lines altogether.
What Causes Frown Lines?
Frown lines often form as a result of aging and repetitive expressions over time. Expression lines form as your skin weakens and thins as your body naturally decreases collagen and elastin production. Frown lines range from light to more severe and often resemble the number 11. They can appear as light, moderate, or deep lines, making patients feel less confident in their appearance.
Frown lines can make you look angry, irritable, tired, and unapproachable. This cosmetic injectable can change that and restore smoother skin between the eyebrows to restore your youthful appearance and make you look approachable and well-rested.
FAQs About Jeuveau Treatments in Baltimore, MD
What Happens During a Treatment?
You can expect a quick and customized treatment when you schedule your Baltimore, MD, area Jeuveau injections at Eternal Dermatology. Most patients describe the treatment as comfortable and virtually painless, but you will have the option of a pre-treatment numbing cream if necessary to enhance your injection experience.
First, we will cleanse the treatment area to sanitize it, and then, using a very thin, small needle, make the necessary injections into the muscles around the eyebrows responsible for the repetitive expressions that contribute to the formation of frown lines and the worsening of existing ones.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients only need one treatment to achieve their desired results. Our goal is to design a custom-tailored treatment plan with the right amount of product to eliminate your frown lines and help you feel more confident in the appearance of your skin.
When Will I Notice the Results?
Jeuveau is a relatively fast-acting injectable. After your initial treatment, you won’t see immediate results the day of, but you will see improvements in the appearance of your frown lines within the first two to three days. Those results will only continue to improve during the first 30 days post-treatment.
How Long Will My Results Last?
After your treatment, you can expect your results to last anywhere from three to four months. If your body takes longer to metabolize the product, your results may last up to six months, but typically most patients need a follow-up treatment after three or four months. While this treatment delivers long-lasting results, those results are only temporary. As your body metabolizes the product, you’ll notice your frown lines begin to reappear slowly.
When that happens, you can schedule a follow-up treatment so you can maintain a frown line-free expression long term. Regular treatments will promote the longest-lasting results.
Will I Look Natural?
At Eternal Dermatology, our goal is to safely and naturally treat expression lines without compromising the integrity of your appearance. You can rest assured that when you schedule your Jeuveau treatments here, you’ll achieve exceptional results and will still look like yourself, just without the frown lines.
Is There Downtime?
You won’t have to plan around downtime after your initial treatment. Since treatments are so quick, patients can plan on resuming normal daily activities after they are over and even return to work if needed. There are some aftercare instructions you will need to follow to ensure optimal results. These may include the following:
- Temporarily discontinuing the use of blood-thinning supplements and medications
- Avoiding strenuous workouts for the first 24 hours post-injection
- Refraining from scheduling certain professional skincare treatments for the first few weeks after your injections
- Keeping your head elevated for at least four hours after the treatment
- Avoiding touching the injection sites
- Avoiding environments that increase your body temperature, even temporarily
- Avoiding sun exposure
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have frown lines that aren’t responding to other skincare treatments or anti-aging topical products and you want a solution that can temporarily eliminate them, you may be a good candidate for this cosmetic injectable. Ideal patients should be in good health and free of any infections or skin irritations at the planned injection sites.
Patients should have realistic expectations about the treatment and the outcome and should not be allergic to any of the injectable ingredients. Pregnant and nursing women do not qualify for treatment.
