It can be truly frustrating to walk into a room with an angry expression on your face, even though you’re happy. Thanks to frown lines that become increasingly etched into your face as you get older, you can often look more tired, older, or angrier than you feel.
Thankfully, there’s a new game in town that can do away with those pesky frown lines: Jeuveau®. And we’re pleased to offer this new, more affordable option.
At Skin Med Spa we pride ourselves on providing our patients in Downers Grove, Illinois, with the products and services they need to look their very best. While neurotoxins that tackle the fine lines and wrinkles around your brows and eyes aren’t new, Jeuveau is the newest neuromodulator, and it helps erase wrinkles without the heaviness or stiffness that other products, such as Botox, create.
Here’s a look at how Jeuveau can remedy some of the expression lines around your eyes and brows.
If you look in the mirror only to find an increasing number of temporary expression lines taking up permanent residence on your face, welcome to the world of aging.
Take, for example, your glabellar lines, which are also known as frown lines. When you crinkle your brows in concentration, frustration, or anger, vertical and angular lines form on the bridge of your nose and between your brows.
When you were younger, these dynamic lines disappeared as soon as you unfurrowed your brow, leaving smooth, expressionless skin behind. As you age, though, several things happen that cause these lines to stay put in between expressions.
To start, your skin naturally loses elasticity and tone thanks to a natural decrease in collagen and elastin. This decrease often speeds up through exposure to the sun, which can break down the connective fibers in your skin.
Also playing a part is just simple use. As the years go by and your expressions pile up, these lines form well-worn paths in your skin that refuse to smooth out.
Jeuveau was recently approved by the FDA to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines in adults. To do this, Jeuveau contains 900kDa purified botulinum toxin type A, which relaxes the muscles responsible for contracting and forming lines in your face.
Our Jeuveau treatment is quick and easy, and we inject the product within minutes in the comfort of our office. Our team has extensive experience using neurotoxins and knows exactly where to place the injections for the best effect. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with a more youthful appearance without giving you a frozen look.
Jeuveau goes to work within a few days after your injections and lasts up to four months, though results vary from one patient to the next.
Jeuveau is not just limited to frown lines, it is also used for:
One of the best benefits of Jeuveau is its affordable price, which means you can make it a regular part of your beauty regimen.
