Do you have moderate to severe frown lines that detract from your youthful appearance? Many people have what are commonly referred to as “angry 11’s” in between their eyebrows. These vertical lines appear whenever you furrow your brow, and as we get older these lines can stick around even when our facial muscles are relaxed. This tends to make us look angry, more tired, or older than we really are. To combat frown lines, Evolus has created a product known as Jeuveau™, which is FDA-approved to treat what is technically known as glabellar lines.
If you are interested in restoring some of your youth, consider us here at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center in Sacremento. We proudly offer Jeuveau™ as an option to rid your face of frown lines in a safe and effective manner. Contact us today to get started by scheduling your consultation!
How Does Jeuveau™ Work?
This treatment uses a strain of botulinum toxin to relax certain facial muscles. Once these muscles have been affected by the solution, they will no longer contract when you make certain expressions. This doesn’t mean your face will be frozen; you will still be able to smile, frown, and furrow your brows like normal. However, since certain muscles are no longer moving, the wrinkles associated with frowning have a chance to fade away, or soften with treatment.
Jeuveau™ was recently released as a prescription medication following its FDA-approval in the spring of 2019. The name itself is a play on the French word for “new” and “modern,” which is fitting for this injectable. This product should only be administered by someone who has been training in the proper injection technique so as to avoid unwanted side effects.
What Can I Expect?
Jeuveau™ treatment sessions are quick, so you won’t have to take more than a lunch break to receive injections. The results from your treatment are not immediately apparent, as the toxin takes some time to affect the muscles. The results will begin to fade within a matter of months. One long-term study concluded that patients see the best results when they receive three treatments over the course of one year, or, one treatment every four months. The most common side effect after a round of injections is a headache.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
We recommend this treatment to patients who are looking for an easy way to revitalize their appearance. Jeuveau™ is non-surgical and minimally-invasive, and it results in little to no downtime. It is important that you have realistic expectations regarding the treatment.
