Dr. Y. Anthony Nakamura, a board-certified plastic surgeon and recognized expert in plastic surgery and body contouring, offers Jeuveau® injections to the residents of Arlington, Dallas Fort Worth, and the surrounding communities in Texas.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau® is an injectable neuromodulator that uses botulinum toxin type A to treat wrinkles, like Botox® and Dysport®. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve signals to the treated muscles, preventing muscle contractions and the formation of facial wrinkles. Unlike its neurotoxin partners, Jeuveau® is made with a unique purified formula that is only intended for cosmetic treatments.
Where is Jeuveau Injected?
Jeuveau® is designed specifically for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines (glabellar lines). These horizontal lines between the brows develop over time as the result of repeated facial expressions and muscle movements.
What to Expect
Jeuveau is a quick, minimally painful treatment that can be completed in as little as 10 minutes. Jeuveau injections are administered with a fine gauge needle into the forehead muscles around and in between the eyebrows. There is minimal downtime and recovery necessary. Mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the injection site are common but will improve within a couple of days and after that time, you can resume all your normal activities.
It is important to note that Jeuveau can spread from the injection site to other areas of the body. Although this is rare, especially when administered by injector specialists like our team, this possible risk could cause problems with swallowing, speaking, and breathing as well as blurred vision, weakness, and drooping eyelids. If you have any of these symptoms after your Jeuveau treatment, call your doctor immediately.
Who is a Candidate?
Adult men and women in overall good health who want to smooth their forehead lines for a more youthful look are the best candidates for Jeuveau. You might not be a candidate if you have an active skin infection, a history of bleeding problems, an allergy to botulinum toxin, or are currently taking blood thinners. Dr. Nakamura and our expert team will discuss all these factors with you and listen to your cosmetic goals at your consultation to determine whether you are a candidate.
