We’re so excited to offer you a new product — meet Jeuveau!
Jeuveau is made with botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin wrinkle relaxer. This is the same neurotoxin used in Botox, but Botox has been around in its current form for many years and the technology hasn’t been updated.
Jeuveau, on the other hand, is more precise. The results of Botox don’t appear in their final form for two-three weeks, whereas Jeuveau results appear in three-four days. Botox results usually last about three months, whereas the results of Jeuveau can last up to six months.
In order to understand why Jeuveau helps smooth the skin, let’s first talk about how wrinkles are formed. There are two types of wrinkles: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are usually caused by age-related volume loss, and tend to be the most severe around the nose and mouth.
On the other hand, dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated facial expressions. Throughout the day, your facial muscles contract hundreds of times and eventually lines are permanently etched into the skin. Jeuveau can also be used to prevent lines from deepening, or from forming entirely, which can keep you looking younger for a longer amount of time!
When the face is treated, Jeuveau paralyzes the underlying muscles which prevents us from making the habitual facial expressions that cause these wrinkles to form. Over time, the wrinkles diminish, and are prevented from getting any deeper. Jeuveau can be used to treat the following areas:
In addition to smoothing wrinkles, Jeuveau can also be used to minimize a gummy smile, as well as treat migraines and excessive sweating!
To treat the upper lip, Jeuveau is injected in precise units along the muscle around the upper lip. The muscle relaxes and the lip flips outward, giving your mouth a poutier, less gummy look.
To treat migraines, Jeuveau is injected into the nerve endings around pain fibers responsible for headaches, blocking the release of neurochemicals involved in pain transmission.
“Hyperhidrosis,” the formal word for excessive sweating, is treated much the same way. When Jeuveau is injected into the treatment area — which could include the hands, feet, armpits, and forehead — it blocks the nerve signals responsible for creating sweat.
