Jeuveau – the “New Tox”

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau® belongs to a class of drugs that temporarily block nerve signals to muscles in the body. This differs from dermal fillers, which adds volume where it is lacking.

If you want to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on your face, you have a new option. Jeuveau® was approved by the FDA in 2019 to treat facial wrinkles, and is the newest addition to the wrinkle-relaxer pantheon of Botox® and Xeomin®.

What is the difference between Jeuveau and Botox?

Jeuveau® and Botox® contain the same ingredient botulinum toxin. However, the botulinum toxins used by Jeuveau® and Botox® are slightly different — Botox® uses onabotulinumtoxinA and Jeuveau® uses prabotulismtoxinA. In large doses botulinum toxin is considered to be one of the most potent neuromodulators.

Jeuveau injections

Jeuveau treatment

Treatment with Jeuveau is performed as an outpatient procedure and involves your nurse practitioner gently injecting the treatment solution into needed injection sites.

To begin, you will take a comfortable seated position. Treatment areas will be numbed prior to administration of the injection in order to ensure maximum comfort. Once you are comfortable and relaxed, your nurse practitioner will gently inject the Jeuveau solution into the skin.

Depending on your treatment needs, the Jeuveau injection will either be injected into the forehead, between the eyes, or other areas. The number of injection sites will vary based on your treatment needs.

After-Care

Immediately after the procedure is complete, you may notice slight bumps at the injection sites. These should go away after 10–15 minutes.

Treatment with Jeuveau is virtually painless and involves no scarring of the skin. Visible results can be seen two to ten days after treatment and can last around five to six months.

In order to maintain results, repeat visits may be needed. After treatment, it is recommended that you do not scratch or apply direct heat to treatment areas.

Pictures

Say “cheese”

Pictures taken before the procedure provide a better view and understanding of the areas to be treated, and can be consulted when discussing specific goals with the practitioner. When compared to your “After” pictures, they are an effective way to track treatment results over time.

Diagnosis

Personalized muscle diagnosis

The practitioner first conducts a personalized assessment of your facial anatomy and marks the exact injection points with a white makeup pencil. You will be asked to frown, raise your eyebrows, and smile widely to help determine the strength of your facial muscles and to identify the best treatment for achieving optimal results.

Injections

Begin treatment

The procedure lasts only a few minutes. No anesthesia is needed since injections are made with a small-gauge needle that minimizes any discomfort. Using the marked points as a guide, the practitioner proceeds with injections and determines the minimum amounts needed to achieve the desired effect.

How do I prepare for Jeuveau?2022-10-10T14:29:41-04:00

It’s essential that you notify your practitioner if you’ve received other kinds of injections in the three months prior to your Jeuveau appointment. Avoid using medicines, such as aspirin, ibuprofen and other drugs that thin the blood prior to your treatment. These may increase bleeding and bruising risks. Furthermore, be sure to tell your practitioner if you’re taking any allergy drugs, muscle relaxers or sleep aids.

With topical anesthetic, Jeuveau injections can be virtually painless. Even without a numbing agent, pain is minimal, and you may only feel a little pinch. Injections are very quick and with a trained Bion injector, you may not even notice when they happen.
