Jeuveau

Jeuveau Wrinkle Treatments in Vernon Hills and Chicago

FDA-approved Jeuveau, created by Evolus, is a quick, easy, and painless injectable offered to men and women who would like to smooth out wrinkled skin, crow’s feet, and laugh lines. 

With the doctors’ focus on providing patients with excellence in aesthetic rejuvenation, Drs. Daniel Ritacca and Leonard Lu are among the first in the area to offer this groundbreaking treatment.  This product has proven to be a safe and effective alternative to BOTOX®.

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau is a botulinum toxin, very similar to BOTOX®, and is the first aesthetic-only neurotoxin approved in the U.S. Initially approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines (vertical lines commonly found between the eyebrows), Jeuveau is the first new neurotoxin wrinkle treatment to reach markets in more than a decade.

Jeuveau temporarily paralyzes facial muscles, allowing the muscles to relax which in turn prevents the skin above from creasing over and over, forming grooves. In recent years, neurotoxins have been gaining in popularity among both old and young patients alike. While brands like BOTOX® and Dysport® have dominated the industry, the newly FDA-approved Jeuveau (900 kDa purified botulinum toxin formula type A) is quickly becoming a popular alternative.

Chemically similar to BOTOX®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®, Jeuveau also uses a form of the Clostridium botulinum toxin to target nerve receptors in the muscles. Unlike BOTOX®, however, Jeuveau injections do not diffuse into the broader muscle tissue. The treatment stays in place, making it highly precise and effective.

Jeuveau’s Unique Benefits

Jeuveau is new to some practices, and the Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Vernon Hills and Chicago is among the first to make this new treatment available to patients. 

While there are other facial rejuvenation treatments and procedures available at his Medspa, here are a few reasons why Jeuveau is a treatment worth considering:

Jeuveau’s Convenient Application

With Jeuveau explicitly designed to be a minimally invasive yet highly targeted treatment, most patients receiving their injections are in and out of our office within thirty minutes. And they experience negligible side effects following their procedure. The injections can be easily completed over a lunch break or during a stop before heading home for the day.

Reliable Results

Depending on the location of the injection sites, Jeuveau delivers near-immediate results to patients, and many see noticeable improvement within seven to fourteen days following the procedure. Maximum results can be expected seven to ten days following the procedure.

The Jeuveau Procedure 

A: Preparing for the Jeuveau injections starts with a consultation with our team. During this visit, our experienced injectors will evaluate the depth of any wrinkles and creases and discuss with you your long-term aesthetic goals. Once approved as a candidate for this treatment, your procedure is scheduled.

During the procedure, our experienced providers will first mark the target areas on your face to identify where the formula is to be injected. The entire visit takes 10 minutes so you can be out the door ready to resume your normal activities.

Following your Jeuveau appointment, our experienced providers will send you on your way with special instructions, such as the advice to hold your head in an upright position for two to three hours after the procedure. You are then free to return to your normal daily activities with minimal social limitations immediately after the treatment.

Common Jeuveau Frequently Asked Questions

For those interested in Jeuveau and the process behind the treatment using the product, here are some of the most frequently asked questions: 

Q: What Are the Side Effects of Jeuveau Treatment?

A: The most common side effect of receiving Jeuveau is mild bruising, which is best avoided by staying clear of any medications highlighted by our specialists.

Q: How Long Can I Expect the Results of My Jeuveau Treatment to Last?

A:  In general, results often last between four to six months, with individual variation. Factors such as muscle mass, metabolism, and injection site location influence this outcome. During your preliminary consultation, you will be provided with useful information about what you can expect.
