Jeuveau™ (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs), a.k.a. “Newtox” is a new type of Botox injection that has been studied and approved by the FDA for the reduction of severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as the glabellar lines, in adults.
Unlike other brands of the botulinum toxin (for example: Botox), Jeuveau is the only brand that was clinically developed specifically and only for cosmetic use. It is dedicated exclusively to the use of aesthetics and nothing else. We believe Jeuveau is a better fit for certain types of facial wrinkles compared to Botox and are proud to offer it to our patients.
Here at the Dental Standard, the safety and quality of products we use on patients must meet the highest standard and Jeuveau™ (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) does just that. In fact, Jeuveau, is manufactured under strict quality and safety standards in a state-of-the art facility, designed specifically to produce Jeuveau. Furthermore, several clinical studies with over 2,100 patients have confirmed the safety and efficacy of Jeuveau.
As we age, the frequent and repetitive contractions of our facial muscles from laughing, crying, smiling and frowning start to create creases or deep wrinkles in our skin. Specifically between our eyebrows, vertical lines often develop and give a permanent tired or irritated look that most of us find not so attractive.
Do you hate those pesky little wrinkles that make others think you hate the world because you look like you’re constantly frowning and furrowing your brow? Well, here at The Dental Standard, we have good news!
Jeuveau™ was specifically created to reduce the appearance of those frown lines between your brow. With a simple injection in the muscles in your forehead that are responsible for the contraction of your eyebrows, your entire image and appearance can be rejuvenated!
The ingredient in Jeuveau™, prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs, relaxes and prevents the brow muscles from contracting for a period of time. Without the contraction, the creases are reduced and many patients report not only visible improvement but improved self-confidence, approachability from others and a younger, more youthful appearance.
Treatment of frown lines with Jeauvea is a lot simpler than most people think. Done right in our office here in Chicago, Jeauvea is injected into 5 different locations in the brow muscles through a very fine, tiny needle once the skin is clean. The entire process takes maybe 15
minutes at the most and that’s it! Most people return to daily activities immediately afterwards.
Side effects are minimal and if they occur, are typically short lasting but can include pain at the injection site, swelling, redness, slight bleeding/bruising and in rare cases, eyelid droop, headache, and infection. If you see any signs that concern you, do not hesitate to contact our staff immediately.
The effects of Jeuveau™, like with other botulinum toxin injections, naturally wear off after several weeks to a few months. While results won’t go entirely back to where you began, a new round of injections are recommended after at least 3 months to maintain optimal results.
With high efficacy and patient satisfaction rates, low occurrence of side effects and little to no downtime after treatment, we are thrilled to offer Jeuveau™ to our patients here at The Dental Standard in Chicago.
