Mukilteo, Washington, area patients looking for a non-surgical solution to aging skin on the face might be worried that they have no options to choose from. Luckily, our providers at Krueger Aesthetics, including Dr. Ronald A. Krueger and his team, can educate you on the various cosmetic injectables that are great solutions for treating these issues. One injectable treatment that might be recommended is Jeuveau, a product similar to the more well-known Botox.
Dr. Ronald A. Krueger and his team describe Jeuveau as a neurotoxin injected into the facial muscles to reduce or eliminate wrinkles associated with aging. It is a FDA-approved toxin closely related to Botox. The nickname for it “NewTox”! It is incredibly popular for these same effects on the face. Like its predecessor, Botox, Jeuveau works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses in muscles to prevent them from contracting and causing wrinkles. This makes it an excellent solution for dynamic wrinkles that develop on the face, including the lines and folds on the upper third of the face. This includes the glabellar lines between the eyebrows, forehead folds, and the crow’s feet that can develop around the eyes. Injection of this neurotoxin provides results that last several months before reinjection is required and is a wonderful alternative to invasive plastic surgeries such as forehead lifts and facelifts.
The best way to determine candidacy for Jeuveau is to book a consultation at Krueger Aesthetics to discuss with Dr. Ronald A. Krueger and his team the advantages of this treatment and if you are a good fit for it. If you are not considered the ideal patient for this injectable, you may still qualify to use other injectables depending on your overall health and well-being. The severity of the wrinkles, folds and skin laxity you want to treat can also determine if injectables are appropriate or if plastic surgery better suits your needs and the desired results.
During your appointment, our team starts by educating you on the product and determining if you are a proper candidate. Then, the face is cleansed, and a topical numbing agent is used on the treatment area for optimum patient comfort. Our doctor will then strategically administer the injections into the muscles of the face to reduce contractions that contribute to the formation of dynamic wrinkles. Within a few days, you will notice the difference in the appearance of your skin and will be able to enjoy the results for several months!
