Jeuveau™ is the fourth and newest neurotoxin approved by the FDA to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. It is the first botulinum toxin injectable dedicated exclusively to aesthetic treatments. In addition, it is the only alternative to BOTOX® to enter the injectables market in over a decade.

What is Jeuveau™?

Jeuveau™ was developed by Evolus and is made using a patented manufacturing process called Hi-Pure™ technology. This new injectable neurotoxin works in a similar way to BOTOX® by utilizing the botulinum toxin type A to temporarily freeze the underlying facial muscles which contribute to the formation of glabellar lines, or frown lines.

How does Jeuveau work?

Jeuveau™ prevents and improves glabellar lines by temporarily preventing your nerves from signaling your facial muscles to flex, allowing them to relax. This results in a smoother and less furrowed appearance in the forehead. Jeuveau™ is the newest option to BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomin®.

Am I a candidate for Jeuveau™?

If you currently are healthy and have frown lines on your forehead, you are most likely a good candidate for Jeuveau™.

Our experienced double board certified facial plastic surgeons will discuss any relevant medical history with you during your consultation to ensure that your procedure is safe and effective.

Currently, the FDA has only approved Jeuveau™ for the treatment of glabellar lines although it is expected to be approved to smooth other facial lines in the near future. Like BOTOX®, Xeomin and Dysport, Jeuveau™ is not intended for use on static wrinkles (wrinkles that are the result of aging, sun damage and lifestyle). Jeuveau™ is meant to treat wrinkles from facial muscle contractions.

What should I expect during Jeuveau™ injections?

The procedure for Jeuveau™ will generally take less than 15 minutes. The injection site is cleansed and numbing cream is applied if requested. A very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of Jeuveau™ into specific muscles. By carefully pinpointing the exact muscles which are causing the wrinkles, our experienced doctors are able to preserve your natural facial expression.

You will notice an improvement in your glabellar lines as early as 2-3 days. A follow-up visit with Dr. Cheng will be scheduled in order to ensure you are happy with the results of your procedure.


What is the recovery time after Jeuveau™ treatments?

Jeuveau™ is similar to BOTOX® in that it is a “lunchtime facelift.” Jeuveau™ is a non-invasive procedure there is no downtime, allowing you to return to work or your other activities immediately. There may be a mild redness or swelling in the area for up to 30 minutes after the procedure.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Friday, May 22, 2020:

We are officially back!

It’s been a long 9 weeks and we cannot wait to see all of our loyal and supportive patients back in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call from your car once you’ve arrived at the office for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will then bring you inside, offer you hand sanitizer and bring you straight back into your designated room. We will at no point have any patients waiting in the lobby!
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

 

Watch us take you through what your next appointment will look like:

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,
