Many facial wrinkles are caused by repetitive muscle movements when we frown, smile, laugh, squint, and lift or lower our brows. Fortunately, a new non-surgical solution is available to smooth aging facial skin and to help prevent new lines from forming. Jeuveau, also known as NEWTOX, is a modern injectable treatment that works by safely limiting facial muscle movements to temporarily improve lines and wrinkles. Dr. Louis DeJoseph, and our team of plastic surgeons and expert injectors at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, are pleased to offer Jeuveau in Atlanta to patients who want to look younger and more refreshed.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau (PrabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) by Evolus is an FDA-approved treatment for smoothing “dynamic” facial lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions, specifically mild to severe glabellar lines between the eyes that are often known as the “11s”.
This new injectable neurotoxin treatment, like Botox Cosmetic, is made with purified botulinum toxin, which safely and temporarily disrupts the communication between the nerve and coordinating muscles to smooth lines and wrinkles. Jeuveau has earned the name #NEWTOX and is already gaining recognition among plastic surgeons and patients alike.
Benefits of Jeuveau
Patients choose Jeuveau by Evolus for the same reasons they receive Botox: the treatments are minimally-invasive, safe, and effective. Dr. DeJoseph is pleased to offer NEWTOX based on the following standard results:
- Smooths deep dynamic lines
- Prevents the progression of lines and the formation of new wrinkles
- Creates younger-looking refreshed skin
- Yields natural-looking results
- Consistent treatments may regenerate the skin for lasting improvement
Dr. DeJoseph may also recommend #NEWTOX to treat a gummy smile, reduce excess sweating, smooth facial wrinkles, or improve other medical and cosmetic concerns.
Am I a Candidate for Jeuveau?
NEWTOX is best for men and women who wish to achieve a fresh and rejuvenated appearance without the downtime and expense of plastic surgery. Men and women who are over the age of 18 who have mild to moderate dynamic wrinkles like a prominent glabellar line may be ideal NEWTOX candidates.
If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, are breastfeeding, or have had allergic reactions to Botox treatments or another Botulinum type A product in the past, please share this information with your plastic surgeon. Our experts in Atlanta evaluate each patient’s candidacy on an individual basis.
The Jeuveau Consultation
During a Jeuveau consultation in Atlanta at Premier Image Cosmetic Laser Surgery, Dr. DeJoseph will examine your skin and review your health history to determine if the #NEWTOX wrinkle treatment is right for you.
Jeuveau can be used in areas previously treated with Botox injections and may be performed alongside dermal filler injections to improve and smooth wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness. Dr. DeJoseph will provide you with a treatment plan based on your specific needs and aging patterns.
Preparing for Jeuveau
When you schedule your Jeuveau injection appointment, Dr. DeJoseph will provide you with a complete list of pre-treatment instructions. One week before the NEWTOX treatment, avoid anti-inflammatory medications and supplements that can cause excessive bruising or bleeding like Advil, Aleve, Motrin, aspirin, ibuprofen, gingko, and fish oil supplements.
Our aesthetic medicine experts perform NEWTOX injections at our beautiful Premier Image facility in Atlanta, GA. Before the ten-minute treatment begins, the skin is cleaned and prepped with a numbing cream. The entire process is easily tolerated, and the small needle generates only a minor pinching sensation at the injection site.
Your Premier Image expert injector may perform subtle changes during a follow-up visit and will create a maintenance schedule to ensure lasting results and renewed skin.
Recovering from Jeuveau
The NEWTOX treatment is nearly pain-free, and downtime is not required. However, the effect of botulinum toxin treatments does take a few days to emerge. Jeuveau needs time to activate, so keep your head elevated for several hours, and do not apply ice or receive a facial immediately after the treatment.
Minor redness is common and may cause some social limitations, but most Premier Image patients resume their normal activities directly after the procedure and even go back to work right away.
Possible Jeuveau Side Effects or Risks
Mild redness, swelling, and bruising are the most common side effects associated with NEWTOX and may be reduced if you avoid anti-inflammatory medications and supplements prior to treatment.
Life-threatening allergic reactions, flu-like symptoms, headaches, pneumonia, muscle weakness, and other side effects are sometimes associated with neural modulator injections but are rare. Your plastic surgeon will discuss the risks and side effects of the treatment during your consultation.
