Persistent wrinkles that have developed between the brows are a common concern among patients at Aloha Laser Aesthetics who want to achieve a more youthful look. These vertical creases, which are often referred to as furrows, worry lines, or “11” lines, can develop as early as your 20s or 30s and typically progress in severity as skin ages. Most commonly, frown lines have been treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections; however, Jeuveau™ by Evolus® is a newly FDA-approved product formulated specifically to reduce the prominence of moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows. After a thorough evaluation and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Faulkner can determine the best treatment approach for achieving the more youthful look you desire.
What is Jeuveau™?
Jeuveau is a next-generation, cosmetic neurotoxin that is FDA-approved to relax the muscles that cause moderate to severe vertical wrinkles to form between the brows. While Jeuveau is applied and works similarly to BOTOX Cosmetic, the active ingredient in Jeuveau offers unique properties. When compared with BOTOX Cosmetic injections, Jeuveau can more effectively diminish deep glabellar (frown) lines. For patients who have not achieved the degree of frown line reduction they desire with BOTOX Cosmetic, Jeuveau offers an exciting and potentially more effective alternative. Jeuveau can relax targeted muscles for between three to four months. Treatment with Jeuveau is quick and can be performed with minimal discomfort with the help of cold compresses and/or topical anesthetics.
Is Jeuveau™ Right for Me?
If you are interested in finding out if Jeuveau is the right injectable for improving the appearance of your frown lines, a consultation at Aloha Laser Aesthetics can reveal the best approach for smoothing these wrinkles. Dr. Alan Faulkner is experienced in performing facial rejuvenation with all types of cosmetic injectables, from wrinkle relaxing products to dermal fillers. During your consultation, he will take the time to discuss your cosmetic concerns, review your injectable treatment history (if any), examine your skin, and gain an understanding of the results you would like to achieve. Based on your discussion, he will present a customized treatment plan designed specifically for your needs. In addition to Jeuveau injections, Dr. Faulkner may suggest BOTOX Cosmetic for other areas of the face as well as aesthetic skin treatments, such as PicoSure® skin rejuvenation or TempSure™ Envi skin tightening, for comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Your priorities and budget will also be taken into account when designing your treatment plan.
How Is Jeuveau™ Treatment Performed?
Prior to receiving your injections, a cold compress and/or topical anesthetic can be applied to the skin to desensitize the area and reduce discomfort. The entire treatment process typically takes about 30 minutes or less and most patients find that the injections are easily tolerated. The needle used to inject Jeuveau into the targeted facial muscles is micro fine and injections are performed quickly. Once treatment has been administered, Jeuveau then works to relax the muscles that cause your frown lines. When the muscle activity is reduced, the wrinkles will have the opportunity to soften and smooth. You can return to your usual activities immediately following Jeuveau treatment, as there is no downtime required.
How Long Do Jeuveau™ Results Last?
Jeuveau typically reduces frown lines for between three to four months, though individual results may vary. Once the full effects of Jeuveau have become apparent, you may require a small touch-up to perfect your results—especially if it is the first Jeuveau treatment session you have ever had. To consistently maintain the quality of results, properly timed re-treatments can be scheduled at Aloha Laser Aesthetics. The more treatments you undergo with Jeuveau the more effective the results may appear, as muscles can weaken with extended lack of activity.
How Much Does Jeuveau™ Cost?
The overall cost for treatment with Jeuveau is determined by the number of units injected during your session. Currently, Jeuveau costs the same as BOTOX Cosmetic, but we are currently offering pricing incentives to help encourage patients to try this exciting new product. During your consultation, Dr. Faulkner will tell you how many units of Jeuveau you will likely need so that you are informed as to how much your treatment will cost. At Aloha Laser Aesthetics we accept several forms of payment, including major credit cards. If you are looking for ways to make the treatment you want more budget-friendly, we also offer third-party financing opportunities for qualified applicants through CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit.
