Jeuveau® in Tampa & The Villages, FL

By Dr. Richard Castellano, Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon

Jeuveau® is one of the newest options in injectable treatments. Like Botox®, it relaxes muscles to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles, which is why many refer to it as “Newtox”. At ImageLift®, Dr. Castellano offers Jeuveau® injections and other neuromodulator treatments to residents of Tampa Bay, including those in St. Pete, Clearwater, Ocala and the surrounding areas of Central Florida.

What is Jeuveau®?

Jeuveau® is a newer neurotoxin option for smoothing away moderate to severe wrinkles on the upper face. This wrinkle relaxer injectable contains the same active ingredient as Botox® and similar injectable products. It works by relaxing the facial muscles, which smooths out the wrinkles and lines that are caused by facial expressions. With Jeuveau® treatments, patients can reduce the appearance of these lines and wrinkles and even prevent them from worsening.

Jeuveau® is effective for addressing concerns that include:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Perioral lines
  • Gummy smiles

What Makes Jeuveau® Unique?

Jeuveau® stands out due to its unique Hi-Pure technology, which uses extra steps during the production of the Jeuveau® formula to eliminate excess proteins. As a result, Jeuveau® contains the lowest amount of proteins of any leading neurotoxin brand. This purer formula allows the injectable to get to work quickly, often with results appearing in as little as 2 days. Additionally, it helps minimize the risk of developing antibodies that can cause resistance to treatment.

What Should I Do Before Jeuveau® Treatment?

Jeuveau® requires little preparation, but we do recommend avoiding the following substances for 72 hours prior to treatment:

  • Retin-A
  • Blood thinners
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Fish or oils rich in omega 3
  • Allergy medication
  • Topical steroids
  • Sleep medications and supplements
  • Aspirin
  • John’s Wort
  • Supplements containing Vitamin E
  • Ibuprofen

This helps to minimize bruising, bleeding, and discomfort. Additionally, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Rich Castellano of ImageLift® to ensure that Jeuveau® is a good fit for you.

What is the Jeuveau® Procedure Like?

Your Jeuveau® treatment will begin with the application of a topical anesthetic, which numbs the skin to minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Then, one of our master injectors will use a fine needle to inject Jeuveau® into the desired treatment areas. The location and number of these injections will depend on the areas being treated and your desired results. The Jeuveau® treatment typically takes less than 45 minutes, making it a quick and convenient treatment for anyone with a busy schedule.

What Happens After Jeuveau® Treatment?

There is no required downtime after Jeuveau® injections. Some common side effects like redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites usually resolve within a few hours to days. We recommend limiting exercise on the day of treatment to minimize the chance of side effects, but otherwise, you’ll be able to resume your normal activities immediately after your visit.

What Results Can I Expect from Jeuveau®?

Jeuveau® begins working immediately upon injection, but it can take several days for the full effects of treatment to set in. Patients will start to notice a smoothing of fine lines within a few days of their Jeuveau® treatment. Full results become visible within 14 days as the muscles gradually relax. Results last approximately 3-4 months but can vary by patient.
