Jeuveau® on Long Island
Jeuveau® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used in adults for a short period of time (temporary) to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).
When injected, Jeuveau® temporarily prevents your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex. The result? In clinical trials, Jeuveau® was shown to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
How Does Jeuveau™ Work?
Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, Jeuveau™ is derived from the purified form of Botulinum toxin A. It is the first product of its kind to hit the market in the United States in almost 10 years.
Jeuveau™ is a neuromodulator. It’s designed to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by relaxing the muscles. Think for a second about smiling, laughing, frowning, squinting, and furrowing your brow. You probably do each of those actions more times every day than you can count, often without realizing you’re doing them.
Jeuveau™ works by targeting the muscles that control the actions that cause wrinkles when you smile, squint, frown, laugh etc. When you perform any of these actions, your brain sends a signal through your nervous system to your muscles. Your muscles receive the signal, then do what your brain tells them to. Jeuveau™ blocks that signal from reaching your muscles.
Anyone who wants to improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines is a good candidate for Jeuveau™.
