Wrinkles that develop around the eyes are often called "expression lines" because they're caused by the repetitive movement of facial muscles when we frown, squint, smile, or arch our eyebrows when surprised or angry. The appearance of these worry lines and crow's feet is one of the primary aesthetic concerns of women and men who want anti-wrinkle treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic at our Shreveport, LA, practice.
The introduction of Jeuveau now gives patients who come to Jade MediSpa at The Wall Center another treatment alternative to minimize these dynamic wrinkles. The Wall Center is among the first in the U.S. to offer Jeuveau, which was approved in February 2019 for use in the U.S.
Women and men bothered by vertical lines between the eyebrows are the best candidates for Jeuveau because it is approved by the FDA specifically to treat these wrinkles (called glabellar lines). Injections of neurotoxins such as Jeuveau can also help postpone the appearance of these lines by limiting the movement of the tiny muscles that lead to their development. Results of Jeuveau treatments are temporary, and patients need follow-up treatments to maintain the outcomes.
Our Jeuveau patients have a brief consultation with 1 of our aesthetic specialists, who reviews their skin health and cosmetic goals and determines if they can benefit from nonsurgical wrinkle reduction treatments. We can perform the injections during the same visit.
Even though dermal fillers and Jeuveau are both injectable anti-wrinkle treatments, they actually complement each other. That's because they treat different types of wrinkles and lines. The dynamic wrinkles targeted by Jeuveau, BOTOX Cosmetic, and other neurotoxins are formed by repeated muscle movements. Static wrinkles, on the other hand, develop as our skin loses volume and becomes less elastic. Fillers restore volume in areas such as the nasolabial folds, under the eyes, and around the mouth. They can also augment thinning lips.
As with BOTOX, Jeuveau treatments are brief. Injectors at our med spa use pinpoint precision when using Jeuveau to minimize the worry lines that form between the eyes. Patients experience only minor discomfort during the injections, and there is no downtime or lasting discomfort following the treatments.
Changes to your appearance won't be seen immediately after the Jeuveau injections. Clinical trials showed that Jeuveau treatment results are very similar to results achieved by BOTOX injections, which take about 2 to 3 days to appear. Every patient's experience is unique, however, and it can take up to 2 weeks to realize the final results. The more youthful, smoother look can last for several months before you'll need a follow-up treatment.
