One of the first places many men and women notice the visible signs of aging is in the annoying glabellar lines which appear between the eyebrows, which leave you looking old, tired, or even angry. Smooth and soften frown lines with Jeuveau, that latest neuromodulator to be approved for use in the USA by the FDA.
What if you could take your favorite things and improve them with modern technology and manufacturing processes? Meet Jeuveau. Jeuveau is a neuromodulator created specifically for aesthetic enhancement. Jeuveau treats the visible signs of aging by temporarily halting the constant motions of specifically targeted facial muscles. Jeuveau creates a smoother, younger look and prevents the formation of new lines. Jeuveau is a wonderful alternative to BOTOX, now offered to our patients at Rappaport Plastic Surgery in New York.
Jeuveau is a form of cosmetic injectable known as a neuromodulator or neurotoxin. Derived from a refined form of botulinum toxin A, when injected into the facial muscles these neurotoxins work to disrupt the communication between your nervous system and the muscles in your face that work all day long to create facial expressions.
Over time, the muscle contractions your face makes every day etch lines and wrinkles into your skin, adding years to your appearance. By injecting these muscles with Jeuveau, you can restore a more youthful look – in a treatment that takes less than half an hour in most cases.
Men and women who are interested in reducing the visible signs of aging and rejuvenating their facial appearance are usually excellent candidates for Jeuveau. Women who are pregnant, wish to become pregnant, or breastfeeding are not suitable candidates for Jeuveau or other neuromodulators.
While BOTOX and Jeuveau work in similar ways, there are some patients who no longer respond to BOTOX as they did in the past. Jeuveau has a softer finish than that of BOTOX and may last longer, often up to six months. Dr. Rapaport will carefully evaluate your unique needs and goals to identify which neuromodulator will best help you achieve your aesthetic vision of facial rejuvenation.
You want to smooth lines and creases but retain your natural expressions – with our meticulous injection techniques, your can expect compliments, as you will appear younger, more rested, and more approachable.
A topical numbing cream may be applied so you are comfortable during the procedure. Then Dr. Rapaport will carefully inject small doses of Jeuveau with precision, delivering just the appropriate amount to produce a very natural look. When you receive Jeuveau from Dr. Rapaport, your results will never appear overdone or artificial. His refined technique and experience will help you restore the youthful allure that improves your confidence and quality of life. Since treatment with Jeuveau is non-invasive, you may return to your normal activities as soon as your procedure is complete.
There is no downtime or recovery following treatment with Jeuveau. You may experience mild redness, tenderness, or swelling at the injection site, which should subside within a day or two. You should keep your head elevated for at least four hours following injection with Jeuveau and should avoid touching or rubbing the area in the initial hours to avoid spreading the medication to unwanted areas. Many patients report results in as few as two to three days, with the smoothing effect visible in seven to ten days.
Like all procedures, there are a few risks associated with treatment. While the occurrence of side effects is rare, they include headache, drooping eyelids, upper respiratory infection, nausea, dizziness, and an increased white blood cell count. This FDA approved injectable is very safe, and side effects are rare.
When seeking for a physician to treat fine lines and wrinkles, it is imperative to find a highly-skilled medical professional who has been trained in the subtleties of facial anatomy. You should never trust your face to a practitioner without the necessary skills or training, as they may not be as knowledgeable about the movements of facial muscles and may produce less than desirable results by over-injecting or injecting the product into the wrong muscles. As one of the most well-respected board-certified plastic surgeons in Manhattan, Dr. David Rapaport has the experience and skill to create remarkably natural-looking results.
