When it comes to reducing wrinkles and attaining a youthful appearance, the benefits of Botox® and Jeuveau® stand out from the crowd. But as you plan to get this sought-after treatment, you may want to learn more about it first.
To help you get started with Botox® and Jeuveau® treatments in Long Beach, CA, here is a list of things to know about these neuromodulators.
First and foremost, it is important to learn that Botox® and Jeuveau® are injectable. This means that treatments do not require surgical incisions of any kind to provide you with the required results. Instead, this minimally invasive treatment is injected within your skin around your target treatment areas. While many providers are technically qualified to administer neuromodulator injections, it takes a highly skilled and experienced injector to achieve the best results. For this reason, it’s best to visit the office of a respected and knowledgeable plastic surgeon or a highly experienced injection nurse.
While Botox® and Jeuveau® share many similarities, there are a few differences. The main differences are related to how they’re made and the types of wrinkles they are able to treat. Jeuveau® like Botox®, uses a purified botulinum toxin, however, Jeuveau® uses a slightly different form of botulinum toxin. Botox® contains onabotulinumtoxinA and Jeuveau® contains prabotulinumtoxinA. Another key difference is Jeuveau® is more effective at treating forehead creases and glabellar lines, also known as frown lines that develop between your eyebrows.
By limiting the movement of your muscles, Botox® and Jeuveau® reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that appear from constant muscle movements, such as:
This gives your skin a smoother, younger, and more refined appearance. Additionally, as these muscles will not be contracting, the wrinkles will not worsen unless you stop treatments and the effects wear off.
One of the most crucial things to know about neuromodulators is how treatments can work on different areas of your face. This includes but is not limited to your forehead, in between brows, creases on nose, areas around the lips, and creases near your eyes, and the area around your mouth. However, you should only allow an experienced provider to administer treatments in these areas if they have demonstrated successful results and have positive reviews.
Botox® and Jeuveau® benefits are proven and work for nearly every type of patient.In most cases, it takes approximately 2 weeks for you to see the overall results of your treatment. Some treatment areas may take shorter or longer to show results. This depends upon a variety of factors that your provider will discuss with you. So, if you don’t see your results immediately, don’t worry!
Despite being highly effective, Botox® and Jeuveau® are not a permanent treatment and needs maintenance sessions to retain it’s results. This means that if you want to go back to your usual appearance, pre- neurotoxin, you have the flexibility to do so and forego ongoing maintenance or additional treatments in the future. Just be cautious, fine lines and wrinkles will return when treatment stops and results wear off. If the effects of neurotoxin stop working after years of use, or if your considering a more dramatic result, it may be time to look into surgical options such as a facelift.
Another reason neuromodulators are so popular, is that they are frequently used by both men and women. This unisex, universal treatment works on everyone regardless of their gender expression. This further adds to its popularity and makes it one of the most sought after treatments in the world for anyone looking to ease their fine lines and wrinkles.
One of the most significant Botox® and Jeuveau® benefits remains the minimal to no downtime requirement. After your treatment, you can get back to most of your regular activities promptly. Once a day has passed, you can even resume regularly scheduled activities after a discussion with your injection provider.
While Botox® and Jeuveau® is largely focused on delivering aesthetic improvements to different areas of your face, it can treat various complications you may be experiencing. Neurotoxins are also frequently used to reduce muscle spasms in areas such as your eyes or neck. Additionally, you can reduce sweating in your palms, underarms, and soles of your feet. Plus, neurotoxins can also be used to relax muscles in the jaw and relieve clenching, TMJ dysfunction, and headaches.
