As you age, lines and wrinkles will form across your face, neck, chest, and hands. If you want to erase these lines and wrinkles, topical anti-wrinkle treatments will not be very effective. On the other hand, anti-aging injectables are incredibly effective for the treatment of lines and wrinkles. At AURAE MD in La Jolla, CA, Dr. Margo Aura Emami offers Jeuveau, a revolutionary injectable muscle relaxant.
How Does Jeuveau Work?
Jeuveau impedes communication from the nervous system to the treated muscle by binding to some of the receptors. This results in the relaxation of the treated muscles. It prevents the muscles from contracting excessively, relaxing away the lines and wrinkles in the treated area and stopping the formation of new wrinkles and lines for several months.
Generally, the results of this injectable muscle relaxant last four months, but it is possible to enjoy ideal results for up to six months. Since the results of this treatment are temporary, one to three annual follow-up sessions are necessary to maintain the desired appearance.
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is an injectable muscle relaxant featuring A botulinum toxin. This neurotoxic protein is FDA-approved to relax away dynamic wrinkles in most healthy individuals. The bacterium that creates this neurotoxic protein is known as clostridium botulinum. Like similar injectable muscle relaxants, it provides natural-looking results in under an hour with no discomfort, pain or downtime.
What Areas Can This Injectable Treat?
This injectable muscle relaxant is most commonly used to treat the forehead wrinkles between your eyebrows, commonly known as glabellar lines. However, there are several other potential applications for Jueveua. For example, it can be used to smooth neck bands, frown lines above your eyebrows, smoker’s lines, and laugh lines.
What Should I Expect During My Injection Session?
You can expect an incredibly convenient treatment session. The average session lasts between 10 and 30 minutes. Since the administration of this injectable muscle relaxant is so convenient and improves the contours of the face, it is often called a lunchtime facelift. However, unlike a facelift, there is no need for general anesthesia or a combination of local anesthesia and sedation.
Rather, people opt to have the treatment area numbed with ice or a topical anesthetic cream. Before your injections are administered, we will sterilize the treatment area and use a marker to note the most strategic injection locations. Then, we will administer the medication to the targeted muscles with a fine-gauge needle. The typical treatment area receives between three and five injections.
What Should I Expect After My Injection Session?
Even though there is no required downtime following this anti-aging treatment, you are strongly encouraged to avoid intense exercise, alcohol and tobacco consumption, and excessive heat and sunlight for 24 hours. Adhering to these guidelines mitigate the risk that your face will not become flushed.
Furthermore, you should refrain from lying down within the first four hours of your injection session. Finally, you should not massage the targeted region during this time. If you feel the need to apply cosmetics to the treatment area, be very gentle.
What Benefits Can Be Derived From This Treatment?
Thanks to how effective this non-invasive injectable muscle relaxant is, you can expect the treated muscles to be smoother and more relaxed in just two to three days. You may even feel your muscles relaxing on the same day as your treatment.
Typically, the final results of this treatment become apparent after seven to 10 days. At this time, the treated area will be smooth and youthful. To reiterate, you can expect these ideal results to last between four and six months.
Another incredible benefit of this anti-aging injectable is how long the results of the treatment last. Affecting the durability of the results are such factors as the amount of muscle in the targeted area, the severity of the cosmetic concerns, your age, and your overall health. That said, most injectable muscle relaxants provide results that last between two and three months. In other words, this treatment lasts two to three times longer than similar treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Injectable?
Dr. Margo Aura Emami will determine whether you are a good candidate for this injectable anti-wrinkle treatment during your initial evaluation. While this injectable is safe for all skin types, tones, and textures, it is only effective for the treatment of lines, wrinkles, and folds caused by excessive muscle contractions.
If your cosmetic concerns are caused by volume loss, an alternative injectable will be more appropriate for you. For example, Dr. Margo Aura Emami proudly offers a number of dermal fillers to volumize, lift, tighten and recontour regions of the face suffering from severe collagen loss.
