The New Kid on the Block: similar but different from Botox (Colorado Springs, CO).
Men and women looking for a solution for frown lines and other facial wrinkles have a wide range of options available to them at Perfect Skin Dermatology. Colorado Springs, Colorado area patients can speak to Dr. Susan Schroeder about cosmetic injectable treatments, including Jeuveau.
What is Jeuveau?
Patients who have used neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) for the treatment of aging skin now have another choice: Jeuveau. Jeuveau is formulated with a highly purified form of the primary ingredient used in Botox known as botulinum toxin type A and works similarly as Botox when injected into facial muscles. The muscles are not able to contract as strongly, smoothing the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. In addition to treating horizontal lines across the forehead, those around the eyes, and at the frown area, this injectable can also be used to adjust a gummy smile, change a down-turned smile, relax an arched eyebrow, smooth, superficial crepe-like skin and temporarily reduce the size of pores (micro-tox).
Why choose Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is the newest neurotoxin injectable available in the U.S. and received FDA approval in early 2019. Patients may choose this injectable over other botulinum toxins, as it:
- has a shorter onset of action, with most patients seeing initial changes in about 3 days, as opposed to 5-7.
- tends to have a more natural, softer appearance than some of its competitor injectables..
- safe and FDA-approved.
- highly purified.
- is the most similar in molecular structure to Botox, as opposed to Xeomin or Dysport.
- effective for treating dynamic wrinkles and folds.
Additionally, some patients believe that Botox may have become less effective for them over time. A solution to this concern might be to switch to Jeuveau.
Who is a candidate for Jeuveau injections?
To determine if a patient can benefit from Jeuveau, an initial evaluation with Dr. Susan Schroeder and her team is encouraged.
