In early 2019, the FDA approved the first aesthetic-only neuromodulator for smoothing out muscle-related frown lines: Jeuveau™. Los Angeles-area patients can find the injectable at Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills, a practice made up of physicians known particularly for their skill and experience with injectables. In fact, Dr. Derek Jones and Dr. Naissan Wesley were investigators on the Jeuveau™ FDA study that led to the approval of this exciting innovation.
The fact that Jeuveau™ is "aesthetic only" sets it apart from neuromodulators that also have medical applications. BOTOX®, for instance, can be used to curb excessive underarm sweating, as well as combat chronic migraines and muscle spasms. Jeuveau™ has the same molecular structure and effects as BOTOX®, and the results are comparable to other longstanding and more broadly applied botulinum toxin type A-based injectables, but it is used solely for cosmetic purposes.
All of the neuromodulators work by disrupting the typical transmission of messages via nerves in the body. Since they can be used to temporarily stop uncontrollable spasms and crease-forming forehead muscles alike, these injectables have developed a reputation for versatility and broad applications. The uniquely aesthetic application of Jeuveau™ is a first for the industry.
Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills is known nationally for its reputation with fillers, such as Belotero Balance®. The practice regularly offers fellowships that attract physicians eager to learn the techniques and approaches that yield natural-looking results.
The muscles responsible for motion on the forehead—particularly between the eyes—help to convey countless expressions each day. That activity adds up, with each contraction serving to create increasingly pronounced lines and wrinkles over time. Jeuveau® relaxes the muscles that engage when someone scowls, squints, or makes any expression that bunches up the skin between the eyebrows where frown lines appear.
Our physicians are internationally regarded key opinion leaders and researcher in minimally invasive facial aesthetics
Once injected, the active ingredient in Jeuveau™ inhibits muscle activity, which prevents the skin between the eyebrows from forming visible wrinkles. This is a temporary treatment, so motion will gradually return.
Every Jeuveau™ treatment at Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills will be administered by a physician experienced in injectables. The session itself will last mere minutes. Patients concerned about the use of a needle can discuss anesthetic options prior to their appointment.
There may be slight redness or swelling at the injection site, which will resolve soon after the treatment. The effects of Jeuveau™ take a few days to appear.
In terms of dermal fillers to handle related signs of aging known as static wrinkles, Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills offers Voluma®, Vollure™, and Volbella® in the Juvéderm® family, as well as Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Belotero Balance®.
