Sick of pesky frown lines? Jeuveau may be the answer! This wrinkle-relaxing injectable treats expression lines on your face by blocking the nerve signal that causes the muscle to contract and fold, as it does when you furrow your eyebrows in concentration or frustration. Although the results are temporary, they can be restored with maintenance appointments. To arrange a consultation to discuss Jeuveau, please call Austin Plastic Surgeon at (512) 559-1376.

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau is a botulinum toxin type A injectable that smooths fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It has been FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines (vertical frown lines between your eyebrows), but it is also used by experienced cosmetic surgeons “off label” on other types of wrinkles on the face.

What Parts of the Body Does Jeuveau Treat?

Jeuveau treats the signs of aging on the face. It treats certain types of wrinkles:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • “Smoker’s lines” above the upper lip (which occur on non-smokers as well)
  • Forehead lines

These types of wrinkles are caused by the repeated folding of facial muscles, so they are often called expression lines because they are formed by years of smiling, frowning, squinting, grimacing, furrowing your brow in concentration, etc.

Is Jeuveau Painful?

The injections are pretty painless! If you’ve ever received BOTOX Cosmetic injections, you can expect the same sensation. There may be a slight pinch as the needle is inserted but the feeling goes away quickly.

In the hours following injections, it’s normal to experience tenderness and soreness at the injection site. These side effects are usually tolerated quite well by our patients. We can recommend over-the-counter pain relievers and other ways to reduce discomfort after treatment.

How Do I Prepare for Jeuveau?

The prep is really quite simple. You don’t need to do much in the days leading up to your appointment. There’s no anesthesia or surgery; you simply show up to your injection appointment!

To get ready for Jeuveau you should:

  • Schedule a consultation at Austin Plastic Surgeon
  • Discuss what you would like to change and receive personalized recommendations from our surgeons
  • Schedule your appointment
  • Consider taking the day off from work, although downtime is not necessary

That’s really it! One of the great things about injectables like Jeuveau is the minimal prep and virtually nonexistent recovery time.

How is Jeuveau Administered?

Jeuveau is administered with injections, using a very fine, narrow needle. We may ask you to scrunch your face up so we can pinpoint the best areas to administer injections. The injection portion of the appointment usually takes about 10 minutes total, although each injection itself takes only seconds.

What is Recovery Like?

It’s not absolutely necessary to take time off from work or other activities, but you may want to clear your schedule for the rest of the day so you don’t have to stress about fitting in the appointment. You should avoid lying down for several hours to prevent any migration or undesirable settling of the medication. Delay strenuous activities that get your heart racing for about 24 hours. Don’t rub or massage the injection sites for 24 hours. We can instruct you how to apply a cold compress to the area safely to reduce discomfort and swelling. Redness, swelling, soreness, and irritation at the injection site may persist for several hours to a couple of days.

What Can I Expect From My Results?

You may notice the first version of the results after one to two days. The full results will take shape in about a week. Your results will be tailored to the look you discussed with the doctors at Austin Plastic Surgeon. You can expect natural, flattering results that refresh your appearance. Jeuveau lasts about three to four months before another injection appointment is needed to maintain the effect.

” I saw Dr. Franco to have my first Botox injections. He listened carefully to my desires and explained what he would do to deliver the look I wanted. His bedside manner is better than any doctor I’ve been and his professionalism and expertise put me at ease. He was very gentle; I could barely even feel the needle.”- S.F., Google Review
