Jeuveau in Indian Wells, CA
Achieving youthful looking skin is easier than you may think. New Jeuveau injections offer men and women the opportunity to smooth wrinkled skin and turn back the clock on their looks. In Indian Wells, Dr. Cosgrove’s medial spa is among the first in the area to offer this innovative treatment that promises Botox®-like results without the Botox® prices.
The Culprit Behind Wrinkles
What comes to mind when you think of aging?
For most, it’s the wrinkles and creases. Although these lines may appear gradually, once they’ve made their appearance, they can be difficult to ignore. Furthermore, wrinkles can start to develop early – for some, fine lines can start to form as early as their late 20s to early 30s. While they may not be noticeable yet, they can still age an individual’s appearance. As a result, wrinkle treatment is a high priority for countless men and women looking to rejuvenate their appearance and retain their youthful looks.
As with any other cosmetic treatment, finding the best solution starts with understanding the condition. Unlike other signs of aging, wrinkles can result from a combination of factors including diminished collagen production and extensive sun damage. Another culprit responsible for causing wrinkles are underlying facial muscles. Located right below the skin, facial muscles control our facial expressions. Over time, however, frequent use can cause these muscles to tighten and tense to the point where they cause wrinkles and creases to appear on the skin above.
Neurotoxins are a more effective solution to smoothing these unwanted creases. This type of injectable uses a highly purified form of the botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze facial muscles. This allows the muscles to relax, thereby smoothing surface wrinkles. Recent years have seen neurotoxins jump in popularity among old and young patients alike. While the industry has long been dominated by brands like Botox® and Dysport, newly FDA-approved Jeuveau is quickly becoming a popular alternative.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a neurotoxin-based treatment that uses a highly purified form of the botulinum toxin to treat and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and creases. First approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines, Jeuveau is the first new neurotoxin wrinkle treatment to reach markets in over ten years.
Jeuveau is chemically similar to existing Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport. Each uses a form of the Clostridium botulinum toxin to target nerve receptors on the muscles. Like Botox®, however, Jeuveau injections stay in one place and do not diffuse to the broader muscle tissue. As a result, the treatment is highly precise as well as effective.
Why We Recommend Jeuveau
While Jeuveau may be new to some practices, Desert Med Aesthetics is among the first in the Palm Springs region to make this new treatment available for patients.
Like other facial rejuvenation procedures available at our Indian Wells med spa, there are a few reasons why we feel Jeuveau is a treatment worth getting. These include:
Jeuveau was specifically designed to be a minimally invasive yet highly targeted treatment. Most patients getting injections are in and out of our office within thirty minutes and experience minimal side effects following their procedure. Jeuveau injections can be easily completed over a lunch break or as a stop before heading home for the day.
Jeuveau delivers near-immediate results to patients. Depending on where the injections are placed, most see noticeable improvement within three days of treatment, with maximum results achieved between seven to ten days following their procedure.
While injectables may be minimally invasive, they can still cost a significant chunk of change. Jeuveau is changing the neurotoxin industry on its head by offering Botox®-like results for a fraction of the cost. For patients who’ve long considered undergoing Botox® treatment but have been discouraged by the cost, Jeuveau is the ideal alternative solution to a renewed appearance.
Ask our Expert: Top Jeuveau Questions Answered by Dr. Cosgrove
As with any other newly released procedure or technique, there are only a few patient-friendly resources readily available for Jeuveau. To help interested persons better understand the process behind this anti-aging treatment, we’ve pulled together some of the most frequently asked questions about Jeuveau.
What is the treatment process?
Getting Jeuveau injections starts with a consultation with our Indian Wells cosmetic specialist. During this visit, board-certified Dr. Doriana Cosgrove will evaluate the depth of any wrinkles and creases and discuss with you your long-term aesthetic goals. If we determine that you’re a candidate for this treatment, we’ll schedule you for a session.
During the procedure, Dr. Cosgrove will first mark areas along your face to identify where the formula will be injected. A dose is then administered via ultra-small hypodermic needles in order to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Following your Jeuveau appointment, our specialist will send you with special instructions to ensure the formula doesn’t dissipate like other neurotoxin treatments.
What are the side effects of Jeuveau treatment?
In clinical studies, Jeuveau was shown to have a slightly more favorable safety profile compared to other neurotoxins. However, like Botox®, Dysport or Xeomin® there are some rare but serious risks that come with using a neurotoxin to treat wrinkles. These can range from nausea and dizziness to muscle weakness and heart conditions. If you start to experience any of these side effects, call our specialist immediately.
How long will my Jeuveau treatment last?
Like any other Botox®-like treatment, how long the results last can vary from patient to patient depending on factors such as muscle mass, metabolism, and location of the injection. During your preliminary consultation, Dr. Cosgrove can provide a more realistic timeline for what you can expect your treatment longevity to look like.
