What is Jeuveau (Newtox)?
Jeuveau (Newtox) is a type of muscle relaxer that possesses many similarities with Botox. It is used in the form of injection. It can be injected into the Glabella (the area between the eyes, where the 11 or mad lines are), the forehead, and the lateral canthal area (Crow’s feet). Jeaveau (Newtox) will erase the wrinkles that stem from muscle contractions and animations. If there are deep wrinkles that are etched in the skin, then Jeuveau will soften them and can potentially reverse them with time from repeated injections.
Benefits and Applications of Jeuveau
Jeuveau Newtox is an FDA approved medication. It works by temporarily freezing or blocking the nerve-muscle conduction present in the applied region. This will improve fine lines and wrinkles in the affected area as the eleven, forehead lines or Crow’s feet. Jeuveau Newtox smoothens the muscles of the face and gives a more youthful look. It is injected with a hair-thin tiny needle into the targeted area. Newtox is now widely used all over the world to treat wrinkles and other aging symptoms.
Jeuveau has achieved success in multiple markets, and it is used all over the world. The rare complications are comparable and similar to other neurotoxins as Botox and Dysport. These rare complications are short-lived and readily treatable in most instances. Like Botox, it lasts between two to six months and most patients would need a maintenance injection every 3-4 months.
The clinical signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, are inevitable. However, we can always fight back and delay these signs with many methods, including Muscles relaxers as Jeuveau (Newtox) and other treatments. You are in the right place at Beverly Hills Wellness Center & Med Spa!
How Does Jeuveau Work?
Jeuveau Newtox is a neurotoxin that is safe in professional hands. This neurotoxin is produced by clostridium botulinum (a bacterium). The protein produced by these bacteria temporarily blocks the conduction and signal transmission between the nerve ending and the muscle it supplies. This will relax and smoothen the muscles at the targeted location.
Like all other Cosmetic muscle relaxers, Jeuveau Newtox is available in the form of powder. Before inserting it into the body, it is diluted with a saline solution to make it injectable. When the drug starts moving from the dermis layer into the anticipated muscles, the nerves and their synapses are blocked; thus, the brain becomes unable to signal your body to move those muscles. After some time, the injected muscles lose the ability to contract, which causes fine lines and wrinkles to unwind and become soft. This will help in preventing new wrinkles from appearing on the skin.
Is there a systemic effect from Jeuveau (Newtox)?
This effect of Jeuveau Newtox is always localized as the drug stays where it is injected and doesn’t roam around the entire body. It might go up to a few millimeters from where the injection was inserted. Nevertheless, even if some molecules do enter the bloodstream and migrate to distant regions in the body, it is so minute, and there are no systemic side effects.
After the injection, the site might get a little red or may feel swollen. The redness diminishes after a few minutes so the patient can resume their routine activities after they are done with the procedure. Also, some temporary bumps might appear after the injection. These bumps and swelling will disappear as well within a few minutes. Similarly, bruising could also occur. The injector will try his/her best to avoid visible vessels, but sometimes the vessels could be buried. This bruising is temporary as well. Ice and Arnica help in shortening the duration of these bruises in case they happen.
Safe procedure with a minimal minor, rare adverse effects
There is a small chance of bruising from the injection but using proper technique can minimize the chances. Avoid rubbing the area for a few days after the injection. This might exacerbate the bruising and potentially spread the medication to unwanted places.
Within a week, you will start noticing the improvement in your skin. It will look more refreshing, vitalized, and smooth. The maximum result will appear in about two weeks. After three to four months, you might need to get the treatment again. The molecule gets metabolized by the body, and the conduction between the nerve and the muscles comes back again. If the patient has strong muscles, they will see the wrinkles return faster. If the muscles are small, the effect of Jeuveau will last longer.
