Jeuveau ® is one of the simplest, fastest, and most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments, acting to reduce facial lines and wrinkles without surgery. When we smile, frown, squint or make any of the hundreds of facial expressions humans are capable of, tiny muscle contractions are subtly shifting the position of our facial skin. Over time, these muscle contractions and skin movements result in lines and creases, which grow deeper and more pronounced as we age. These movement-related wrinkles (also called “dynamic wrinkles”) often appear near the eyes, in between the eyebrows, and across the forehead.
Jeuveau ® injectable treatments reduce and soften these movement-related lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them to form. Known as neuromodulators, they act by interrupting signals from the nerves to the muscles. In cosmetic treatment, Jeuveau ® is precisely applied with extremely fine needles to specific muscles, reducing only the facial movements that are causing wrinkles
without otherwise affecting full facial expression. Josh Waltzman MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Long Beach, CA. He knows which of the face’s 43 muscles to treat to eliminate the wrinkles that bother you with this popular Botox alternative.
If you are bothered by lines and wrinkles caused by regular facial movement but aren’t ready to consider cosmetic surgery, you’re likely an excellent candidate for Jeuveau ® . These injectables are minimally invasive, so they carry very few risks for healthy people and they are highly versatile.
They produce the best results when treating dynamic wrinkles, the lines and creases formed when you squint, smile, or make other facial expressions. They do not work on wrinkles that are present when your facial muscles are at rest, which are known as “static” wrinkles.
Jeuveau ® is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Ideal candidates for Jeuveau ® include men and women seeking treatment for the following:
Many patients choose to pair their Jeuveau ® injections with dermal fillers. When performed together, they can create a fully rejuvenated appearance that can look completely natural.
Neuromodulators can also be an effective treatment for conditions other than dynamic wrinkles. They can stop excessive sweating on the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet, and under the arms. They can calm muscle spasms in the neck and eyes. And they can reduce migraines.
Before any Jeuveau ® treatment, Dr. Waltzman will consult with you to answer your questions, and perform a detailed examination of your face. He will recommend a customized treatment plan to meet your cosmetic goals, and explain any opportunities for more comprehensive improvements combining treatments.
