The human face is a roadmap of emotions. It conveys joy, sadness, fear, and confusion through its every expression. But over time, this map gets obscured by wrinkles and creases. As the face ages, it has more and more difficulty smoothing the lines that form from past smiles, frowns, and other facial gestures. If you feel your face is conveying an angry expression that you are unaware of, the Jeuveay treatment can erase the scrunched brow or frown lines.
Jeuveau can alleviate the stress and strain on the muscles and fine tissue beneath the skin’s surface. By relaxing these muscles, Jeuveau reduces the amount of contractions that pull at facial skin. The fewer contractions a muscle makes, the less wrinkles it produces.
The experts at Plastic Surgery Specialists (PSS) are aesthetic wizards, and Jeuveau is their latest and greatest magic wand. PSS is conveniently located in Greenbrae, California, and proudly serves San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area.

What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a neuromodulator, in the same family as Botox. Neuromodulators disrupt the signals from the nerves to the fine muscles to which they are connected. By regulating these neural pathways, Jeuveau limits the number of repetitive contractions that a face will perform. Easing the facial muscles gives one’s expression a serene, smooth demeanor.
Jeuveau is an FDA approved injectable specifically designed for the treatment of glabellar lines, which are the stubborn creases found between the eyebrows. The skilled medical professionals at Plastic Surgery Specialists can administer the proper dosage of Jeuveau to target upper facial wrinkles. The immobilizing serum will release the network of fine musculature running through the eyebrow region. Jeuveau creates an even plain across the brow, conveying youth and confidence without all the lines to obscure your natural glow.
Jeuveau vs. Botox
In terms of neuromodulators, Jeuveau is the new kid on the beauty block. In fact, it is often nicknamed “Newtox” to those in the cosmetic world. Jeuveau is formulated via a proprietary technique that gives it a unique chemical makeup. Jeuveau is a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A, the same compound that gives Botox its powerful appeal.
Since the two neuromodulators have a different formula, they will produce varied results from patient to patient.
Because Jeauveau is a relatively recent innovation in the aesthetic realm, it has only been approved for use on glabellar lines. Compare this résumé to Botox, which has a proven track record and a myriad of applications. Botox has proven effective in treating everything from migraines to excessive sweating. While Jeuveau has some catching up to do, its ability to smooth out and erase upper face wrinkles is really raising eyebrows!
The Benefits of a Jeuveau Treatment
Confidence is priceless. When you experience the remarkable benefits of Jeuveau, your face will enjoy a whole new luster. As the worry and wear gradually disappear after a Jeuveau treatment, so will your insecurities.
But confidence is the less tangible of Jeuveau’s many benefits. You can see noticeable results within seven days of your first procedure, and the effects can last for up to four months!

Since Jeuveau treatments are minimally invasive, they require no preparation. Please do not wear makeup to your appointment; but if you do, we can clean and prep the area being injected. No worries!
The Jeuveau Procedure
In addition to providing gentle cleansing of the injection site, our nurse or doctor may apply numbing cream to ensure the utmost comfort throughout your procedure. Oftentimes injections are done without numbing cream because the discomfort is minimal and resolves almost instantly. Jeuveau is administered through an ultrathin needle, so it leaves only a microscopic dot at the site of each injection.
The doctors and nurse are experts on advising the number of units needed of Jeuveau to address your concerns. Jeuveau treatments are performed in the comfort of our relaxing Greenbrae clinic, and you will be provided with an ice pack if necessary to minimize any possible discomfort.
The Jeuveau procedure typically takes only 15 minutes. This message bears repeating: it only takes 15 minutes to deliver this muscle-relaxing treatment to the areas of concern.
Just as Jeuveau requires no preparation, it also entails no recovery time. You will be able to resume your normal routine immediately following your injections. For this reason, Jeuveau is considered a “lunchtime” procedure. Enjoy wrinkle-reducing enhancement with time to spare for lunch!
The Jeuveau treatment improves facial functionality in complex and profound ways. The neuromodulator reduces the release of acetylcholine in the area where it is injected. This, in turn, affects the delicate behavior of the neuromuscular junctions in the eyebrow region. To put it simply: Jeuveau releases the tension on your facial muscles, allowing a confident calm to envelop your expression.
Easing facial contractions is a great first step in minimizing wrinkles and maximizing aesthetic improvement. There may still be gaps below the surface of the skin, however, due to the natural aging process. As our skin gets older, it has more difficulty regenerating the building blocks of healthy skin, like elastin and collagen. When these elements fade, the skin hangs sallow and saggy.
Dermal fillers can plump these gaps and perk up your facial features. In addition to literally filling the space beneath your skin, these injectables will also promote increased collagen production to keep your skin health on track and making progress for months to come!
While you can receive both dermal fillers and neuromodulators during the same appointment, you may want to schedule a separate visit to experience the benefits of a chemical peel. This procedure coats the face with a powerful compound to remove blemishes and inconsistencies along the surface of your skin.
Your expression is as unique as your fingerprint. To leave the perfect impression on the world around you, consult with Plastic Surgery Specialists to discuss the combination of treatments that best fit your style.
The price of a Jeuveau procedure depends on the extent of your treatment area and the number of units you desire. To discuss payment options, cost, and other general inquiries, please call (415) 384-9787 and one of our friendly Plastic Surgery Specialists will help.
