How Does Jeuveau® Work?
Facial expressions help us communicate joy, concern, or curiosity, but they can also create lines and folds in our skin. The muscles pull and contract the skin, forming creases. In the beginning, these creases, called dynamic wrinkles, fade when your muscles relax. However, deeper wrinkles start to linger even when your face is at rest. Jeuveau® relaxes these muscles by silencing signals from the facial nerves. As the muscles relax, so do your wrinkles. Although you may hear them called neurotoxins, these treatments cause no damage to the nerves or muscles. Once your Jeuveau® wears off, your nerve function returns to normal.
Jeuveau® vs. Botox®
You may wonder whether there are any differences between the different types of wrinkle relaxers. Jeuveau® and Botox® work the same way. However, they have some minor differences that might make one better for some people. We offer several wrinkle relaxers since each person will have a unique response to these slightly different formulas.
Both products can last three to six months, although one might last longer than the other for some people. You may see results appear within a few days for Jeuveau® instead of seven days or more like Botox®. Jeuveau® uses a unique purification method that may help some people see longer-lasting or more noticeable results, but this will vary by individual. Your injection specialist will recommend a product based on their experience and understanding of your goals.
