New Orleans Jeuveau to Make You Look Younger
At Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, patients in New Orleans, LA can work with a dermatologist who offers a wide range of medical and cosmetic dermatology solutions for the skin and body. For patients who are interested in combating the signs of aging, treatments of Jeuveau can help to make you look younger. Jeuveau is also known as “#NewTox” because of the new innovation in the formulation of this neurotoxin.

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau is a revolutionary way for adult men and women to achieve a smoother, more youthful appearance by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. Jeuveau is a medication known as prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs that was commercialized by a company called Evolus. This injectable has been approved by the FDA to temporarily improve the appearance of glabellar lines in adults. Dr. Lupo was a principal investigator in the FDA clinical trial. The glabellar lines are also referred to as “elevens” and develop between the eyebrows. They appear when patients furrow their eyebrows. However, for some patients, they are more moderate to severe and may be noticeable even when they are holding a neutral face. Injections of Jeuveau into the muscles of the upper face can significantly improve the appearance of these glabellar lines, and in some cases, reduce or eliminate them entirely.

Who is a candidate for Jeuveau?

Men and women who are unhappy with their glabellar lines and are seeking a safe treatment that has been approved by the FDA are welcome to ask Dr. Mary Lupo about Jeuveau. The best candidates for this treatment are patients with moderate to severe glabellar lines who are seeking aesthetic enhancement. To determine candidacy, patients are encouraged to book a consultation visit and initial evaluation at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology.

How quickly will patients see results from Jeuveau injections?

Unlike traditional dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Jeuveau does take a few days to improve the appearance of the glabellar lines. However, once it takes full effect, it will last several months before patients will need to have reinjections completed. The effectiveness of the drug will vary from patient to patient. Results are not permanent, but with periodic injections, patients can combat these troublesome imperfections and slow the appearance of an aging face.

Where are Jeuveau injections done?

Dr. Mary Lupo understands the muscles in the face are involved in the development of fine lines and wrinkles. With precision, she injects Jeuveau into the areas of concern to achieve the desired results. Patients can rest easy knowing she has experience in providing cosmetic facial injections. Areas that can be treated with Jeuveau include glabellar lines (“elevens” or frown lines), wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet/Lateral Orbital Lines), forehead lines and creases, corners of the mouth, lips (Lip flip), dimpled chin (Mentalis Dysfunction), bunny lines (Transverse nasal), peri-oral lines around the mouth (Smoker’s Lines), Vertical Platysma Bands (Platysma Muscle) and Brow Lift.

What other options are available?

What other options are available in New Orleans LA area Jeuveau is a medication known as a neuromodulator that works by reducing muscle contractions for aesthetic results. Other neuromodulators that have been used in this same manner include Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Jeuveau is another product that can provide similar results, though it is best used in the area where the glabellar lines form. Additionally, patients are excited to learn that they can use these injections along with other injections for cosmetic enhancement, including dermal fillers or collagen stimulators. In fact, many patients combine several injectable treatments to achieve the results they desire. By using other injectables in conjunction with Jeuveau, patients can obtain a more attractive appearance.

What can I expect during my appointment for injections of Jeuveau?

At Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, patients can ask about what to expect before, during, and after their appointment. Once patients have scheduled a consultation appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo and have decided to have injections done, their skin is prepared. The facial skin is cleansed to remove dirt, oil, and cosmetics. Patients are then encouraged to furrow their eyebrows to help the doctor determine the best areas to inject for the most effective results. Within minutes, the treatment is complete, and Dr. Lupo supplies aftercare instructions. Most patients return to their work and school without interruption.
