At San Antonio Prime Wellness in San Antonio, TX, we know that expression lines and wrinkles don’t always respond to even the most powerful and effective anti-aging skincare products, which is why we offer cosmetic injectables, specifically neuromodulators, which can target these lines at the source. We offer Jeuveau: a highly renowned products that contain neurotoxins that can safely and effectively help you achieve wrinkle-free skin and enjoy it long-term.
Neuromodulators are cosmetic injectables specifically designed to combat expression lines. Unlike dermal fillers that restore volume to different areas of the face, a neurotoxin, also known as a purified protein, which relaxes muscles and, in doing so, helps patients achieve smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
Injectables have been studied, tested, and proven to be an effective solution for men and women who are bothered by moderate to more severe expression lines on the upper halves of their faces.
Neurotoxins are highly purified proteins that work on the muscular level by blocking the communication between the nerve signals and the muscles. By blocking this line of communication, this active ingredient forces the muscles to relax, and as they do, expression lines soften and may even fade altogether.
The neurotoxins in these injectables help patients achieve relatively quick and long-lasting results so they can enjoy wrinkle-free skin long-term with regular follow-up treatments. Plus, they’re incredibly safe, so you can rest assured that when our injectors administer them, not only will you be in safe hands, but you’ll be undergoing a safe treatment.
Jeuveau is a wrinkle-relaxing injectable that also uses a neurotoxin to relax dynamic wrinkles resulting from repetitive expressions over time. The formula in this particular injectable is very similar to Botox and is specifically designed to smooth frown lines between the brows, also known as glabellar lines. Like Botox, this injectable works by blocking the communication between nerve signals and facial muscles to relax that area between the brows.
The treatment process begins with an initial consultation at our office, where an expert injector can evaluate your expression lines, ask questions about your medical history, learn more about your cosmetic or aging-related goals, and determine which of these products is the right choice for you.
Some patients use both products to treat different expression lines: others just need one. Once we create your treatment plan and confirm that one of these products is a safe and effective choice for you, we can schedule your injection appointment.
You won’t have to do much to prepare for this treatment, and when you arrive, we will cleanse the treatment area before administering your injections. If needed, we can apply a topical numbing cream to enhance your comfort, but most patients don’t need it.
The injectables have a very thin, fine needle, and the injection process is quick. The entire treatment can take as little as ten minutes to complete, and you’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities.
Once your treatment is over, you can return to work or resume your normal daily activities. However, you will need to be mindful of the treatment area and follow the post-treatment instructions to achieve optimal results. You’ll be asked to avoid vigorous exercise for 24 hours post-treatment and environments that raise your body temperature and avoid touching the treatment area.
You should schedule your appointment at a time when you know you can keep your head elevated for at least four hours post-treatment and avoid thinning blood supplements, medications, and alcohol consumption for the first-day post treatment.
Don’t be surprised if you don’t see an immediate change in your expression lines following your appointment. These injectables take a few days to effectively relax the muscles in the treatment area. You’ll notice improvements in your expression lines within three to seven days of undergoing the treatment process, and the results will continue to improve for 30 days post-treatment.
While these injectables deliver long-lasting results and can help you live wrinkle-free for anywhere from three to six months at a time, you will need to schedule regular follow-up appointments to maintain your results. Follow-up appointments are quick, just like the initial treatment, but will help you maintain your desired appearance long-term.
If expression lines affect your confidence, know there is a solution, and you don’t have to continue trying different topical skin care products to achieve results. Jeuveau can help smooth wrinkles on the upper half of your face long-term so that you can feel more confident in your skin, regardless of your age.
