At Thomas Wiener Plastic Surgery, patients have access to solutions to help them improve their body and skin. While we do provide a wide range of surgical interventions, we also offer alternatives that are less invasive though effective at helping patients feel more confident in their skin. Patients who are unhappy with the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the face may want to ask about cosmetic injectables that are available for anti-aging purposes. One of many injectables used by Dr. Thomas Wiener includes Jeuveau.
What is Jeuveau?
Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX describes Jeuveau as one of several neuromodulators on the market. It is a brand name that works similarly to other injectables including Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport. Neuromodulators are used to address dynamic wrinkles that form with time due to muscle contractions. The medication is injected directly into the facial muscles to reduce contractions and therefore smooth dynamic wrinkles. Jeuveau is best used on areas such as:
- Between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
- Forehead folds
- Crow’s feet around the outer eyes
How does Jeuveau work?
The medication in Jeuveau works to inhibit muscle contractions by blocking the signals sent from the muscle nerves in the face. With time, this can smooth wrinkles and folds that are caused by dynamic muscle tension in the face. This particular injectable has been FDA-approved since 2019 for cosmetic purposes and is one of several cosmetic treatments available at Thomas Wiener Plastic Surgery.
What can I expect from my Jeuveau injections?
Dr. Thomas Wiener cleanses the injection site thoroughly before using a very fine needle to administer Jeuveau into the muscles of the face. The entire process is done within just a few minutes. Patients might find some short-term side effects develop that will resolve on their own, including itching, redness, and discomfort at the injection site.
