Dr. Joseph Hadi specializes in non-surgical facial rejuvenation at his Encino, CA practice. For those wanting to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle motion, he offers both Botox and Jeauveau. Both are FDA approved wrinkle-reduction options that work nearly immediately to improve a person’s appearance for a more youthful look. Botox and Jeuveau are neuromodulators. A nueromodulator is a chemical that affects signaling between neurons and nerve cells causing the muscles to relax. The most widely known neuromodulator in aesthetics is Botulinum toxin type A. When injected into the skin it can eliminate wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
There are four neuromodulators on the market today: Botox, Jeauveau, Dysport, and Xeomin.
Dr. Hadi only offers Botox and Jeuveau at his Encino medspa. He finds these are the two that offer the most consistent results for his patients.
Both Botox and Jeuveau are excellent options for treating wrinkles and fine lines. Jeuveau has only been approved as a cosmetic product. Botox has been approved for both cosmetic and medical uses. If you are interested in therapeutic benefits of Botox, speak with Dr. Hadi.
Both products use the same ingredients, but the formulation differs. Jeuveau’s Hi-Pure technology takes added steps to remove dangerous proteins and to aid with absorption. This makes the product potentially safer. At the same time, safety also comes down to the person administering the product.
Jeuveau - is the newest neuromodulator specifically for cosmetic use and is referred to as “NewTox. Compared to other neuromodulators, Jeuveau has created what they called Hi-Pure technology, which helps it work more efficiently by interrupting the communication between the nerve ending and the muscle.
Patients generally see results within 2-3 days. Jeuveau can be used to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles or to correct them.
It is commonly used to reduce lines in the following areas:
• between the eyebrows
• crow’s feet
• bunny lines
• Upper lip and corners of the mouth
• Jawline for contouring
• chin for improvement of dimpling
Botox - is the original neuromodulator injectable approved back nearly two decades ago. Like Jeuveau, Botox ireduces or eliminates the appearance of wrinkles.
Not only is it used to correct facial wrinkling, but it is also used to treat the following conditions:
• neck spasms
• overactive bladder
• excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
• lazy eye
• Jaw clenching
Like Jeuveau, Botox works by paralyzing or weakening the affected muscles. It can take up to 10 days for the full affect of Botox to be seen. The duration of its effectiveness lasts for about 3 months with repeat treatment needed to maintain results.
Patients who have tried Botox and Jeuveau said that differences are almost not noticeable. The reason behind this is because both products are injectables that have the same applications.
To get the same desired end result, the cost is nearly the same, but Jeuveau tends to be more competitively priced due to the manufacturer offering better pricing to practices.
Both treatments are quick and virtually pain-free. Dr. Hadi can get you in and out of his office in about 15 minutes if you are short on time!
Botox/Jeuveau Q & A
What happens if I stop Jeuveau or Botox?
If you don’t seek out re-treatment once the product wears off, your wrinkles return back to their original state before you started treatment.
Can anyone administer Jeuveau or Botox?
Technically, no. Unfortunately, there are countless reports of individuals who are not certified to inject Botox or Jeuveau that are doing so. It is important that you see a board-certified physician who uses name brand products, takes care of the product properly, doesn’t over-dilute, and is experienced with injecting. There can be serious consequences when the product is not properly injected.
Is there downtime?
No, there is zero downtime! You will be asked to avoid exercising the remainder of the day following treatment and to avoid laying down for a few hours.
