Now that summer has finally arrived, you may be considering easy ways to improve yourself with little down time. If that’s the case, turn to dermal fillers and other injections. At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide range of products. If you’re looking for a way to reduce wrinkles, we offer the tried and true method of Botox. Additionally, we offer a newer method called Jeuveau. Overall, both work well for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. However, we like Jeuveau better than Botox for a variety of reasons.
What is Jeuveau
Jeuveau is a new FDA-approved injection that temporarily eliminates wrinkles. Many people in the industry call Jeuveau “newtox” since it’s a newer make up of ingredients similar to Botox. This injection works to improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds on your face, especially the wrinkles in between your eyebrows. Typically, we overuse those muscles, which creates the wrinkles. With Jeuveau, the main ingredient in the injection works to relax the muscles, eliminating the wrinkles on a temporary basis.
Nurse Injector Kimber has years of experience with injections and fillers. She’ll work with you to ease any fears and nerves you may have. Kimber’s experience helped many patients over the years.
How Does it Differ from Botox
In terms of their chemical make up, Botox and Jeuveau aren’t that different. They both use small amounts of a neurotoxin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles temporarily. However, one of the biggest differences rests in the amount of time it takes for the injection to work. Typically, with Botox, you see the results in five to seven days. But, with Jeuveau, you see the results within two days. That’s a drastic difference between the two.
Don’t let the word neurotoxin scare you. The amount used is incredibly small and it goes through a process to reduce the risks. However, risks do still occur. If you notice any side effects, you need to seek emergency help immediately.
Which is Better?
Just like everything we offer, there’s no way to determine what’s going to work best for you. However, if you have a quicker turnaround time to eliminate the facial wrinkles, we recommend Jeuveau. Or, if you have some time, you may choose between the two. We’ll work with you to help you choose the right injection for you. After all, Kimber has plenty of experience with injections and dermal fillers. She’ll guide you in the right direction and give you a face with less wrinkles in no time.
Both Botox and Jeuveau work to even out the wrinkles on your face. However, only one has the ability to work within a few days to relax the facial wrinkles. If you have an event coming up soon and want to eliminate facial wrinkles, Jeuveau is the way to go. On the other hand, if you still have a few weeks, Botox may work better for you. Ultimately, the choice is yours. Call the front office to get started with fillers and injections now.
