Procedure Walk-Through

  1. Preparation: Before receiving Jeuveau™ treatments, you should be tested for possible allergies to the substances present in the injection mixture, and should discuss any medications or known allergies with Dr. Vallecillos. Be sure to tell Dr. Vallecillos if you have received injections of any other botulinum toxin in the past. You should also avoid medications that contain aspirin for three weeks prior to, and those that contain ibuprofen for two weeks prior to, your appointment. Your skin should be free of any infections, as Jeuveau™ can exacerbate the condition. On the day of the procedure, your face should be free of any makeup or lotion.
  2. Anesthesia: A numbing cream may be applied to the affected area to minimize a patient’s discomfort during the procedure.
  3. The injections will be administered to the affected areas using a very fine needle, usually on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and in the corners of the eyes. Jeuveau™ works by blocking nerve impulses to selected muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, relaxing them and in turn allowing skin to appear smoother.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for Jeuveau™?

You should consider Jeuveau™ if you are an adult under the age of 65 and suffer from moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, especially those across the forehead and around the eyes. You should not use Jeuveau™ if you are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant.

What is the recovery time for Jeuveau™?

Patients should experience little to no recovery time after a Jeuveau™ treatment. No dressings are required, and any bumps that may appear at the injection site usually disappear within 30 minutes. Side effects are temporary and may include minor tenderness and slight bruising.

Are there risks or side effects with Jeuveau™?

The most common side effect of Jeuveau™ is tenderness and bruising at the injection sites, usually slight and temporary. Applying ice to the affected areas directly after the procedure can help to minimize this. Some patients experience nose and throat irritation, upper respiratory tract infection, temporary headaches, or dizziness. Other rare complications can include flu-like symptoms and blepharoptosis (or drooping of the upper eyelid). You should not use Jeuveau™ if you have a skin infection, as it can exacerbate the condition.

How long do the results last?

Results from Jeuveau™ injections will begin to show within 3-5 days after the procedure, and should last for up to 4-5 months. While additional injections of Jeuveau™ can be administered to improve results, patients should wait at least 90 days between treatments.
