Are you worried about wrinkles and facial creases? Do you want to prevent wrinkles from appearing or reverse the signs of aging? West Coast Eye Institute, the leading ophthalmology practice in Bakersfield, now offers Jeuveau injectables to soften and smoothen your facial wrinkles and lines.

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau, also known as Newtox, is a new cosmetic injectable used to soften or suppress the dynamic wrinkles on your face or neck. This injectable is FDA-approved to correct dynamic wrinkles formed as a result of overused facial muscles. The cosmetic provider injects Jeuveau into strategic locations around your face to soften the crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and smile lines.

What does Jeuveau treat?

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds and bunny lines around the nose
  • Marionette lines and smile lines around the mouth
  • Perioral lines around the lips
  • Dimpled chin

How does Jeuveau work?

Jeuveau corrects dynamic wrinkles on the face and neck. Dynamic wrinkles are the types of lines that appear due to the overuse of certain facial muscles to produce facial expressions, such as laughing and frowning. The overuse of these muscles makes them grow larger, leading to permanent furrows and creases on your skin.

Jeuveau is a neuromodulator with the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin protein that blocks communications between nerves and muscles. When injected into your facial tissues, Jeuveau temporarily freezes the muscles responsible for your dynamic wrinkles. This softens the unwanted expression lines, making you look younger.

Jeuveau vs. Botox

Jeuveau and Botox are extremely similar neuromodulators made of botulinum toxin type A. They have similar results, longevity, and onset periods. However, Jeuveau is produced using Hi-Pure technology, which purifies the neurotoxin protein better, thus ensuring safer results with fewer side effects and complications.

Am I a suitable candidate for Jeuveau?

You’re a good candidate for Jeuveau if you’re between 18 and 65 years of age, physically healthy, not pregnant or nursing, and if you don’t have existing neuromuscular diseases. You can consider this treatment if you have forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, or other types of expression lines. You can also consider this treatment if you want to prevent these wrinkles from appearing.

How is Jeuveau administered?

During your Jeuveau procedure, the cosmetic provider will apply topical anesthesia to ensure comfort. The cosmetic provider selects the appropriate Jeuveau dose for you to ensure subtle and natural-looking results. Finally, it’s injected into strategically chosen locations on your face to soften the unwanted wrinkles and lines.

How are the side effects of Jeuveau?

You may experience mild redness, swelling, and irritation around the injection points, but these side effects dissipate after a few days. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but you should keep your head elevated and avoid strenuous workouts for a day.

When do the results appear?

The results start appearing after 3 to 4 days, with continued improvements for 2 weeks. The final results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you need maintenance treatments.
