If you’re tired of those lines that crease the area in between your eyebrows – frown lines – we have good news for you. Peraza Dermatology Group is pleased to announce that we now offer Jeuveau™, aka Newtox, approved by the FDA for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines.
“Our patients have a wide range of questions about the aesthetic aspects of their skin,” Dr. Daniel Peraza says. “There has been a definite uptick in the number of inquiries about this particular area of the face. Jeuveau™ adds another element to our comprehensive toolkit that we offer to our patients. I’m excited to expand the services we offer in our constant effort to meet the demands of our patients.”
Generally speaking, frown lines are caused by the aging process. As you grow older, your skin loses some of its native elasticity. Wrinkles appear in the spots where you’ve lost the most. Frown lines “live” in between the eyebrows and have the nickname “the elevens” for their resemblance to the number. As they typically appear when we are expressing certain types of emotion, many people find them particularly bothersome. First off, patients don’t like the look of frown lines from a beauty standpoint. Second, people often talk about how the lines can give the people around us a false sense of our mood.
“Nobody wants a little wrinkle to send a perfectly nice conversation down the wrong path because of a misinterpreted ‘look’ that is really just a wrinkle,” notes Dr. Peraza.
Jeuveau™ is 100% for cosmetic use. It is injected into the target area in a procedure that only takes a few minutes, and there is no downtime or additional measures necessary. Patients can expect to see full results in 4-7 days, which typically last for 3-4 months.
Especially for the face, we always encourage a regimen of appropriate skin care techniques and strategies: limit sun exposure, use sunscreen, and wear protective clothing/hats. When those techniques do not prove effective, Jeuveau™ can deliver a more youthful appearance and reduce the effects of again.
