Many patients begin to experience frown lines and wrinkles around their eyebrows due to the movement of muscles in their face. Frowning and other facial expressions can significantly affect a person’s appearance as they age, causing them to look tired or angry. While certain creams and exfoliants may try to address these concerns, they only offer temporary results.
Fortunately, there is a new solution that can provide you with the results you desire. Jeuveau™ is an FDA-approved injectable treatment by Evolus™ that treats lines along your forehead to create a relaxed and youthful appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for Jeuveau™?
Patients interested in Jeuveau™ must be in good health and have realistic expectations regarding their procedure. You will also be asked to quit smoking a few weeks before and after your treatment. You may benefit from Jeuveau™ if you struggle with one or more of the following concerns:
- Frown lines (glabellar lines)
- Sagging skin near the eyebrows
Jeuveau™ contains botulinum toxin and other ingredients similar to those found in BOTOX® Cosmetic. If you are allergic to these ingredients or have experienced an allergic reaction to other botulinum-related products, avoid undergoing treatment with Jeuveau™.
What Will My Jeuveau™ Treatment Entail?
Jeuveau™ is performed on an outpatient basis and only takes a few minutes to complete, depending on the severity of your wrinkles. Jeuveau™ works similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic by preventing the targeted facial muscles from contracting. During your treatment, the solution is injected into the skin and the nerves in your muscles begin to relax. The fine lines and wrinkles along your eyebrows and forehead will begin to soften, creating a smoother appearance.
What Will the Recovery Process Be Like?
Because Jeuveau™ is a non-surgical treatment, little to no downtime is required. However, you may experience some minor side effects, such as swelling, headache, mild eyelid drooping, and irritation or redness around the treated site. These issues should resolve after a few days. Apply plenty of sunblock to protect your skin.
What Results Can I Expect?
Following your Jeuveau™ treatment, you can expect results after a few weeks that will take years off your face. Jeuveau™ can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles along the forehead for up to six months. You may require multiple sessions to prolong your results.
