Frown lines, or “eleven” wrinkles between the brows, are often considered one of the biggest signs of facial aging. These vertical lines typically appear when the brows are furrowed, although at a certain age they may remain fixed in the skin even if you’re not making any facial expressions. Consequently, these glabellar lines can unintentionally produce an appearance of constant anger, stress, or concern without your knowledge. Jeuveau™ is a groundbreaking injectable offered by our Minneapolis-area plastic surgeon specifically formulated to smooth moderate to severe frown lines, serving as a highly effective alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
What are the Benefits of Jeuveau™?
Jeuveau™ is the first neurotoxin approved by the FDA for aesthetic purposes only, speaking to the unique composition of the non-surgical frown line treatment. This injectable can benefit men and women who have deep glabellar wrinkles, or who may have the look of a permanently furrowed brow. For our patients who would like to reduce expressions of stress or concern for a more approachable appearance, Jeuveau™ can offer the following benefits:
- No downtime after treatment
- Performed in-office at Gryskiewicz Twin Cities Cosmetic Surgery
- Ability to smooth deeper or more severe frown lines when compared to other injectables
- Formulated with Hi-Pure™ technology under rigorous standards of quality and safety
This innovative injectable can help you look more youthful and relaxed by temporarily preventing overuse in the corrugator and procerus muscles located between the brows. By limiting motion in these facial muscles, frown lines can be temporarily softened or erased.
Jeuveau™ vs. BOTOX® Cosmetic
As a frown line treatment, Jeuveau™ is commonly referred to as “the next generation of BOTOX® Cosmetic,” as the injectable has received results that are comparable or superior to BOTOX® Cosmetic in clinical trials. Both injectables can help men and women appear more relaxed with natural-looking results, but Jeuveau™ may be able to treat more severe frown lines when compared to BOTOX® Cosmetic. The addition of Jeuveau™ to the collection of state-of-the-art dermal fillers and injectables at our practice allows our patients a wider range of options in finding the best possible treatment for their unique concerns.
How is Treatment with Jeuveau™ Performed?
First, our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz, will examine your concerns and speak with you about your cosmetic goals. If Jeuveau™ is the best solution to improve the appearance of your frown lines, the injectable will be conveniently administered in our treatment rooms. A numbing agent is applied to the skin, if desired, and Jeuveau™ is gently injected into the facial muscles between the brows. Some redness and/or swelling may occur, but this is normal and discomfort is usually minimal. The whole process takes 15 to 30 minutes and patients can return to work and normal activities immediately after treatment.
How Long Does Jeuveau™ Last?
The results of Jeuveau™ typically last for three to four months, although many patients experience improvement for even longer. The outcome should be noticeable within a few days as swelling fully dissipates. We often recommend a series of three treatments spaced out over the year for long-lasting rejuvenation of the brow area.
Jeuveau™ can be an excellent treatment to smooth deep frown lines, restoring a more rejuvenated and youthful version of yourself. If you have any questions about treatment, or if you would like to book an appointment, please contact Gryskiewicz Twin Cities Cosmetic Surgery for more information.
