Jeuveau in Pasadena and Beverly Hills Los Angeles at Beauty by Dr. Kay

With over 15 years of experience and proven results performing cosmetic injections, Dr. Kay has the practice and knowledge to give you confidence in any wrinkle relaxer injection, whether it be Jeuveau or another toxin. Our high patient satisfaction and substantial results are reflected in our high reviews and real patient outcomes, illustrating why we are one of the top choices for Jeuveau injections in the Los Angeles Area.

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau is the newest neurotoxin to gain FDA approval for diminishing glabellar, or frown lines between the eyebrows and the first to gain FDA approval in over 10 years! Juveau (prabotulinumtoxinA) is the purified form of botulinum toxin A and thus is similar to its competitors. Like the other toxins, Jeuveau is a neuromodulator that temporarily softens wrinkles and improves fine lines on the forehead and around the eyes by relaxing the nerves that cause muscles to flex. Manufactured and purified with newly designed processes and machinery in South Korea, this toxin has a higher purity that allows greater activity and minimizes the risk of developing resistance over time.

Jeuveau treatment options

Like most muscle-relaxing toxins, Jeuveau can be used for a number of different areas and treatments.

Frown lines:

Frown lines, or glabellar lines, are the fine lines between your eyebrows caused from furrowing of the brows. Jeuveau softens these lines, reducing the effects of time and restoring your confidence.

Crow’s feet:

Crow’s feet are the fine lines on the outside corners of your eyes caused by the repetition of smiling, laughing, and squinting. Administering Jeuveau to these muscles diminishes these lines to provide you with a more fresh, youthful appearance.

Forehead lines:

As we age, the constant raising of our brows causes wrinkles and lines to form on our foreheads, leaving us feeling old every time we look in the mirror. Relaxing the forehead muscles with Jeuveau smooths those frustrating lines and slows their progression, helping you look and feel younger.

Patient consultation

Dr. Kay consults with each patient individually, assessing their physical features, personal situation, and areas of concern, to determine if Jeuveau is right for you. You must provide us with your full medical history during this consultation as well.  If it is decided that you are well-suited, you will be given a personalized treatment plan, which may include other toxins and fillers that will optimize the results.

Procedure

The administration of Jeuveau is a quick and minimally painful procedure. The actual injection lasts about 10 minutes with no downtime, so you can complete your consultation and injection in the same day! Before beginning the injection, you will have photos taken in order to help you track your results and identify areas of concern. Dr. Kay uses an effective numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Am I good candidate?

Generally, Jeuveau is well-tolerated by most people, however if you’ve had any reactions to similar treatments in the past, you should avoid it. Jeuveau cannot be injected if any infections are present at the injection site, and anybody with neuromuscular diseases are advised against it. Prior to injecting, you must inform us of any medications, vitamins, and/or supplements you are taking. Good candidates are healthy adults displaying lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin.  We recommend avoiding Jeuveau if you are nursing or pregnant.

Is Jeuveau safe?

Jeuveau is a safe, non-invasive, and FDA approved procedure with minimal risk of complications when administered by an experienced and qualified injector. In terms of hypersensitivity and immune responses, Jeuveau is one of the safer toxins as it has a higher purity than most of its competitors. Like most injections, bruising may occur following injection.

Downtime, results, and follow-ups

The best part about Jeuveau is that there’s no downtime and you can go about enjoying your day as soon as you walk out of the office! Results vary in every individual, but you should expect full results by 1 week. We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment 4-6 weeks out in order to evaluate the results and give additional injections to enhance the effects if necessary. Jeuveau lasts around 4 months on average, but unlike its competitors, can last up to 6 months or longer.

How should I prepare for Jeuveau injections?

Before coming in to receive your treatment, you should follow these pre-procedure instructions to minimize the risks of adverse reactions:

  • Avoid alcohol, as it may increase your risk of bruising
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood-thinning medications 2 weeks in advance if possible, as these can increase your risk of swelling and bruising (Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, and other NSAIDs).
  • Avoid coming in with makeup or be prepared to remove it.
  • Try to schedule appointment two weeks before special events, as swelling can take up to two weeks to resolve.
  • Stay hydrated and eat well before your appointment.

What should I do after receiving Jeuveau?

Although there is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities, it is important to follow these post-treatment instructions in order to maximize the results and avoid complications:

  • Remain in the upright position and avoid laying down for 3-4 hours after the procedure. This allows the injections to settle.
  • Avoid excessive facial expressions for the remainder of the day
  • Avoid facials and facial massages for the first week. This can disperse the injections.
  • May ice the treated areas to reduce swelling and bruising if necessary, but be sure to press lightly
  • Use sunglasses in the sun, as Jeuveau can prevent you from squinting, frowning, and furrowing.
