Botox® and similar neuromodulator injections are popular cosmetic treatments to resolve multiple facial concerns. From smoothing frown lines on the brow to gummy smile and jawline treatments, neuromodulators like Botox injections can offer many benefits. A newer option that can be an alternative to Botox are Jeuveau® injections. At Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC, we offer Jeuveau injections for patients that want the benefits of Botox but need a different form.
All neuromodulators work similarly, and Botox, Dysport®, Xeomin® and Jeuveau all use a form of the botulinum toxin that interrupts nerve signals to targeted muscles. This process relaxes the muscles, which can smooth dynamic lines or furrows, or change the appearance of facial features. Jeuveau is the newest of the four neuromodulators and very similar to Botox. The difference is that Jeuveau is lacking certain proteins that are present in Botox. For some people that cannot use Botox due to these proteins, Jeuveau is a wonderful alternative.
Is Jeuveau Right for You?
Whether you have used Botox for years and built up a tolerance to the effects or you are new to neuromodulator injections, Jeuveau can be an excellent choice. The injections can be administered in a quick office visit at our Manhattan or Brooklyn clinic by Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg or one of our trained injectable specialists. Multiple injections are used to target the desired muscles – the glabella lines or “11s” between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and forehead lines are popular spots for Jeuveau injections. The results can take a few days to appear, and they can last about 3-4 months. There is no downtime needed after your treatment – the most common side effects are slight swelling or bruising at the injection site.
Jeuveau injections can help rejuvenate your face and smooth away lines that make you look angry or tired. The purified formula is great for those who no longer get results from Botox or for those who want to avoid building a Botox tolerance.
