In your face’s “race against time,” it may often seem that time is winning. Lines and wrinkles can rob you of a youthful appearance and even damage your confidence and outlook. Maybe it’s time to take the lead with Jeuveau in Annapolis, MD!
Jeuveau is an injectable prescription drug that has proved extremely effective in temporarily smoothing facial lines and wrinkles, particularly those frustrating severe frown lives between the eyebrows. Jeuveau is FDA-approved and is in the same classification of medications as other cosmetic injections like Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®.
Classified as a “neuromodulator,” and derived from Botulinum toxin type A, Jeuveau works by temporarily paralyzing or weakening the muscles that control selected facial movements. Lines and wrinkles result from years of repetitive muscle contractions. By allowing those muscles to rest and relax, Jeuveau diminishes or eliminates facial lines while preventing the formation of new ones, so it is effective as a wrinkle treatment.
Jeuveau has become the injectable gold standard in treating frown lines and an amazingly effective Botox alternative. But it has also proved very effective in addressing:
Both injections have the same active ingredient (botulinum toxin type A), but the respective formulae differ slightly.
In Annapolis Jeuveau has emerged as more effective than Botox in treating frown lines. Plus, Jeuveau uses Hi-Pure Technology to take additional steps to promote absorption.
You are if you are in good general health and do not have certain neuromuscular disorders Don’t use Jeuveau if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products or have any kind of skin infection at the desired injection site. Pregnant or breastfeeding moms are excluded from Jeuveau treatments. If you feel you are a good candidate for Jeuveau Annapolis patients should schedule a consultation today!
Jeuveau is considered a safe and effective treatment, but only when administered by a trained and experienced medical professional who uses only FDA-approved products. At Murthy Facial Plastic Surgery, we “cut no corners.” We warmly invite you to contact us for your Annapolis Jeuveau consultation.
We’ll have a relaxed conversation about your goals and then design the best plan to achieve them. Ask to see “before and after” pictures of our previous Jeuveau Annapolis patients. Tell us about all medications you are taking. We may direct you to suspend use of any supplement or drug—such as aspirin—that might promote excessive bleeding.
Your treatment session will be quick and comfortable. No anesthesia is required. The whole process takes about 15-30 minutes, after which you are free to leave and just get on with your day.
It’s good to refrain from vigorous exercise, alcohol consumption, and exposure to excessive heat or sunlight for 24 hours, until you know how the medication affects you. Now would also be a good time to commit to diligent and daily use of a high-SPF (30 or higher) sunscreen.
You won’t have to wait long! You’ll see a difference in two days or less, with full results evident in about a week. A recent FDA trial found that 71 percent of people saw significant improvement, compared to a one percent reported improvement in a placebo group. Ninety-five percent of Jeuveau patients described their results as “natural-looking.”
At Murthy Facial Plastic Surgery, we believe in achieving harmonious beauty through conscientious care.
