05 Sep Jeuveau Gives You More Options
Botox is the most well-known neurotoxin, but you deserve options when it comes to wrinkle control. Refined MD now offers Jeuveau as well as Botox, ensuring patients always have the entire full suite of safe, effective products available. Jeuveau is the first FDA-approved anti-wrinkle injection in a decade and is being touted as a Botox alternative.
Jeuveau made its debut earlier this year, and one of the biggest appeals is the cost. It is significantly less per unit, yet matches Botox in terms of longevity, efficacy, and safety. The more high-quality neurotoxins there are on the market, the better the patient outcome. In some very rare instances, some patients can develop antibodies to specific strains of neurotoxins, so Jeuveau may be an option for the few who do not tolerate Botox well.
Jeuveau Appropriate For Adults Of Any Age
The latest injectable works just like the others you’re familiar with. As we make the same facial expressions over and over, such as smiling or squinting, we contract our facial muscles. This eventually causes wrinkles at the skin folding site. Neurotoxins work by temporarily freezing those muscles and drastically reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Just like any other neurotoxin, Jeuveau may be appropriate for adults of any age. Many younger clients use them as preventative care—if you can’t create skin folds, you’re simply not going to have as prominent of lines and wrinkles in those areas. Muscles are not paralyzed entirely, but rather relaxed enough to prevent the formation of wrinkles. Younger patients generally benefit more from lower doses (units).
Jeuveau has been approved for treating frown lines near the mouth. However, likely, it will soon be approved for forehead lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Many clients take advantage of the fact that our clinic offers both facial plastic surgery and esthetic services, so you can make the most of your treatments. Combining Jeuveau or another neurotoxin with procedures such as a facelift or eyelid lift can maximize results and give you the best outcome.
