The most common injectable treatments are Botox and Dysport. Both of these injectables are virtually painless because ice and/or a numbing cream are applied in advance of the injections. For most patients there are no side effects to injectables, although in some rare instances, some patients experience some minor bruising that is hidden with makeup.
Botox is used primarily to treat the muscles between the brows. Botox relaxes moderate to severe lines in this area of the face for most patients 18 to 65 years old. Dr. Justin Yovino, can safely inject this treatment into the muscles that rest just beneath the surface of the skin in order to block the nerve impulses to that area. Because the muscle activity in that area will be significantly reduced, the deep lines, wrinkles, and folds will begin to decrease. Botox is non-invasive, pain-free, and has no recovery period, so naturally it is extremely popular.
Another injectable option for those wishing to reduce frown lines and wrinkles is Dysport. Dysport uses a slightly different protein than does Botox, and in some patients, it works more quickly than Botox would, and has seemed to last longer as well. As your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Yovino has the experience of working with countless patients who have benefitted from both Botox and Dysport, and he can use the knowledge from all of those success stories and bring it to bear on your particular case.
XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and is used to treat the abnormal head position and neck pain that happens with cervical dystonia (CD) in adults, abnormal spasm of the eyelids (blepharospasm) in adults who have had prior treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA, and to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Xeomin is approved by the FDA for the treatment of adults with cervical dystonia or blepharospasm. IncobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.
Are you frustrated with frown lines? Does a surgical procedure feel like the wrong choice for you and your aesthetic goals? Jeuveau may be the treatment for you! This exciting new neuromodulator achieves a more relaxed appearance of frown lines by changing the relationship between nerve signals and muscles. Discover the benefits of this powerful new treatment during a consultation with us at Ideal Face and Body in Beverly Hills, CA!
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau™ is an FDA-approved treatment option specifically formulated for the reduction of frown lines. This non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment smooths the appearance of glabellar lines, also known as frown lines. These dynamic lines occur between the eyebrows, and they are a result of natural facial expressions and muscle movements.
Jeuveau is a neuromodulator and it contains a highly purified form of botulinum protein A. When this protein is administered into the body, it disrupts the path of nerve signals. Nerve signals are blocked from reaching muscles, preventing muscles from contracting. This prevents the creation or worsening of lines.
What Could I Expect from a Treatment Session?
Jeuveau is an injectable treatment administered in the comfort of our California office. During these outpatient treatment sessions, each injection is carefully administered into the area between the eyebrows. The purified botulinum protein A begins working to prevent interactions between the nerve signals and facial muscles.
The treatment process is often quick, and there is no set downtime associated with the process! There is minimal discomfort associated with treatment, but you may experience some pinching at the injection site. Although you should be able to return to your normal daily activities, you may notice some slight bruising or swelling in the treatment area.
The individual results achieved with Jeuveau will vary for each person and their unique frown lines. However, most people enjoy results shortly after treatment. Although results are not permanent, a series of treatments may help maintain ideal results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most generally healthy adults who are frustrated with the presence of dynamic lines may be able to benefit from this injectable treatment option. It may be a good choice for those seeking a non-surgical treatment method to smooth and reduce frown lines created by natural facial expressions.
A consultation with our professionals can help you decide if Jeuveau is the best option for you and your goals. They will also help you develop your personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique goals and experiences.
