Do you constantly look stern, stressed, or angry because of a perpetually furrowed brow? This is a common concern for patients who struggle with frown lines, which develop due to overactive facial muscles in the forehead and eyebrows. This causes the formation (and deepening) of brow creases that can be evident even when the face is relaxed.
Distinguished as the first FDA-approved aesthetic-only neurotoxin in the country, Jeuveau™ by Evolus® is a revelatory injectable treatment specifically designed to smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Dr. Wesley Schooler is one of the first plastic surgeons in the area to offer Jeuveau™, giving Santa Barbara patients precedence in the opportunity to undergo treatment with the injectable. With Jeuveau™, patients can achieve a more relaxed and rejuvenated appearance by softening these wrinkles.
What Sets Jeuveau® Apart From Other Injectables?
Jeuveau™ is an exciting new treatment capable of smoothing deeper or more severe frown lines when compared to other wrinkle-softening injectables. Using botulinum toxin type A to temporarily relax the muscles that cause frown lines, Jeuveau™ is the first injectable neurotoxin FDA-approved for aesthetic purposes only. Furthermore, this advanced formulation is produced with Hi-Pure™ technology in a cutting-edge facility exclusively dedicated to high-quality manufacture of the Jeuveau™ solution.
What are the Benefits of Jeuveau™?
Frown lines caused by constant contraction of the corrugator and procerus muscles—the muscles in the brow and forehead—can make you look angry or concerned, even when the brows are not actively furrowed. By relaxing these muscles, Jeuveau™ can smooth frown lines and give you a more youthful, carefree appearance. Jeuveau™ injections have the benefit of:
- No surgery or downtime
- Performed in-office at Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center
- Formulated under strict standards of safety and quality
Clinical trials in which frown lines were treated with Jeuveau™ even resulted in outcomes that are comparable or superior to BOTOX® Cosmetic. If you are unsure whether Jeuveau™ is the right option for your concerns, our plastic surgeon can advise you on the best treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.
What is Treatment with Jeuveau™ Like?
Jeuveau™ injections are administered in our treatment rooms at Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center. Using an ultra-fine needle, precise amounts of Jeuveau™ are injected into the targeted facial muscles that produce frown lines. Patients generally report little discomfort during injections, if any, and a topical anesthetic can be applied beforehand to numb the area. The process usually takes as little as 15 to 30 minutes. Any post-treatment swelling can be controlled with over-the-counter medication.
How Much Does Jeuveau™ Cost?
The price of Jeuveau™ injections depends on the extent of your concerns and how many units of product are necessary to achieve your goals. Each patient will have a different cost estimate based on their unique treatment plan, but rest assured that a personalized quote will be provided once your needs are known. If preferred, our practice accepts plastic surgery financing plans from CareCredit® and ALPHAEON Credit™ to make the cost of injections more amenable to any budgetary concerns. These reputable healthcare lending companies offer qualified patients an array of payment arrangements to choose from, many of which include low- to no-interest rates.
