Horizontal forehead lines form over time as you frown, squint, or raise your brows. Depending on how long the area remains untreated, multiple lines can form. Jeuveau by Evolus offers treatment and prevention of forehead lines while creating a smooth, youthful appearance. Dr. Ran Rubinstein is proud to be among the first plastic surgeons to offer this treatment option in the United States. Patients can enjoy the long-lasting results from Jeuveau in Hudson Valley, NY at our beautiful plastic surgery center.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau by Evolus is a new neurotoxin-based injectable treatment, similar to Botox. The 900 kDa botulinum toxin is FDA-approved to temporarily smooth mild to severe glabellar forehead lines, which are also called the “11s”. Jeuveau works like Botox by blocking the communication between the nerve and the target muscle but may last longer and provide extended results. Dr. Rubinstein, an expert injector and Jeuveau trainer, is pleased to add this excellent wrinkle-relaxing option to his menu of services.
Benefits of Jeuveau
Over time, repeatedly and subconsciously frowning and lifting your eyebrows causes the formation of deep lines that remain present even when your face is relaxed. Jeuveau by Evolus is an ideal treatment for glabellar and horizontal forehead lines, also known as the “worry lines” and “11 lines.” This injectable treatment relaxes the frontalis muscle, which is responsible for lifting the brows and the corrugator and procerus muscles responsible for frowning. Jeuveau is a convenient, non-invasive treatment that offers these additional long-lasting benefits:
- May last longer than other wrinkle relaxers
- Softens the deep lines between the eyebrows
- Helps prevent the formation of deeper lines and additional wrinkles
- Creates natural-looking results
- May prompt skin regeneration with consistent treatments
Dr. Rubinstein is in the top one percent of injectors and trains hundreds of dermatologists and plastic surgeons to use fillers and other injectable treatments, including Jeuveau by Evolus. Advanced injection techniques by Dr. Rubinstein may be able to address additional muscles for the treatment of:
- Lip wrinkles
- Under-eye wrinkling
- Chin dimpling
- Jawline shaping
- Lip drooping
- Brow sagging
- Nose drooping
- Neck banding
- Nostril flaring
- Gummy smile
- Excessive sweating
Who is a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for Jeuveau by Evolus are physically healthy, 18 years of age or older, do not have a history of neuromuscular diseases like multiple sclerosis or myasthenia, and are not pregnant or nursing. Candidates must have realistic expectations, as the level of improvement may vary during the first treatment. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the desired results. Dr. Rubinstein determines each prospective patient’s candidacy during a private consultation.
Your Jeuveau Consultation
Dr. Rubinstein will review your health history and examine your skin during a consultation at our office to determine if Jeuveau by Evolus is the right wrinkle treatment for you. Dr. Rubinstein can use 900 kDa botulinum toxin to treat areas that you have previously had treated with Botox.
The doctor may also recommend Jeuveau in combination with a chemical peel, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, or another cosmetic treatment. A combination of therapies can help to rejuvenate your skin and slow down the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
The Jeuveau Procedure
Dr. Rubinstein has been specially trained by Evolus to inject Jeuveau and actively trains other physicians to perform this procedure. He uses the smallest available needles and applies ice and numbing cream for a pain-free treatment session. Many spas, doctors’ offices, and even dentists offer injectable treatments, but the results cannot compare to Dr. Rubinstein’s. He is a highly skilled injector who achieves long-lasting natural results with his artistry and attention to each detail.
Once the area is numb, Dr. Rubinstein strategically injects small amounts of Jeuveau into distinct muscles that are typically overworked by repetitive facial movements. The product blocks the communication between the nerve and the target muscle and creates a smoother and more youthful appearance.
We recommend visiting Dr. Rubinstein for a follow-up treatment soon after the first session. During the follow-up, the doctor may make subtle adjustments. Dr. Rubinstein will create an ongoing adaptable maintenance program based on your initial results.
The Recovery Process
The Jeuveau treatment is virtually pain-free, and no downtime is required. You are advised to hold your head in an upright position for two to three hours after the procedure. You are free to return to your normal daily activities, and there are minimal social limitations immediately after the treatment.
Common Questions about Jeuveau
What are the side effects or risks associated with Jeuveau?
The most common Jeuveau side effect is mild bruising, which you can help prevent by avoiding medications on our “Meds to Avoid” list. Flu-like symptoms, headaches, eyelid droop, and other side effects are rare when Dr. Rubinstein performs the procedure. Muscle weakness, pneumonia, and other side effects may occur with any neural modulator injection, although they are uncommon.
New injectors may create additional risks, as they commonly cause the eyebrows to overly arch or to droop over the upper eyelids. Choosing a skilled and experienced provider is key.
How many Jeuveau treatments will I need?
You may need more than one initial Jeuveau treatment to achieve and establish ongoing results. Dr. Rubinstein’s patients typically need one treatment session every four months to maintain their smooth, wrinkle-free results, but the treatments may provide longer results after two years.
Is Jeuveau safe?
Though new, Jeuveau has a favorable safety profile and is FDA-approved. Jeuveau is beneficial for the treatment of mild to severe lines and has the potential to last longer than other similar products on the market.
How does Jeuveau work?
Jeuveau blocks the communication between the nerve and the muscle and is similar to Botox. Jeuveau is used to treat, prevent and temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows. Dr. Rubinstein also offers advanced Jeuveau injections to block the muscle causing chin dimpling (mentalis muscle), under eye wrinkles (orbicularis oris muscle) and other critical facial muscles.
Can Jeuveau be used on areas other than the face?
Dr. Rubinstein performs advanced off-label injections and can often inject Jeuveau in areas where Botox is used since it is also a neural modulator. For example, Dr. Rubinstein may use Jeuveau to treat neck bands and excessive sweating.
When can I resume my normal activities?
You can resume your normal activities immediately after having your injections. Mild bruising is rare, and you will need to keep your head raised for two to three hours after the treatment. Many patients slip in for a quick 15-minute treatment with Dr. Rubinstein and head back out to enjoy their day.
Jeuveau and dermal fillers provide quick, minimally-invasive options for rejuvenating the aging face that can last for several months. Jeuveau relaxes the muscle to prevent the movements that create creases and lines. Dermal fillers are used to fill wrinkles and fine lines and to restore plumpness that has diminished due to aging.
Dr. Rubinstein may recommend a combination of fillers with Jeuveau. This may be a beneficial option for older men and women because fine lines and wrinkles become more prominent with age and with facial movement, which is gradually followed by reduced facial volume.
Jeuveau and Botox, are both premium products with similar costs and price points per unit / per site. Jeuveau may last longer than Botox.
Jeuveau is not covered by medical insurance because it is a cosmetic treatment.
When will I see the effects of Jeuveau?
You will see the first improvements within two to three days, but it can take seven to ten days to experience the full results.
How long will my Jeuveau treatment last?
Jeuveau typically lasts for several months, and patients report satisfaction ranging from three to five months. Jeuveau may last longer for some individuals because the duration is dependent on several factors, including muscle mass, metabolism, the dosage, and the location of the treatment. Dr. Rubinstein strategically administers the dosage and expertly injects Jeuveau into the target area to achieve significant, long-lasting results.
Why choose Jeuveau over Botox?
Choosing a neuromodulator brand is a personal decision that should be based on your goals and the injector’s experience and recommendations. Dr. Rubinstein provides only the best and most reliable FDA-approved neuromodulators, and he will work closely with you to decide on the best product for your needs.
