BOTOX® XEOMIN®, and JEUVEAU® are ALL FDA approved prescription products used to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, moderate to severe crow’s feet or forehead lines in adults.

How Do BOTOX®, XEOMIN®, and JEUVEAU® Injections Work?

All products work beneath the skin’s surface and target the underlying muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form over time. When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Dr. Hurvitz will inject BOTOX®,XEOMIN® or JEUVEAU® into the muscles of the areas you want to improve, which will temporarily reduce muscle activity, resulting in diminished visibility of facial lines/wrinkles.

None of the products offer a permanent solution, only a temporary improvement. We recommend coming in every 3 to 6 months for your BOTOX®,XEOMIN®, or JEUVEAU® treatment to maintain results.

Are BOTOX®, XEOMIN®, or JEUVEAU® Injections Suitable for Me?

Dr. Hurvitz will assist you in determining whether botulinum injections such as BOTOX® ,XEOMIN®, or JEUVEAU®are appropriate for the issues you want to address. It is also vital to note that certain therapeutic uses of botulinum toxin injections have age restrictions.

If you have a history of allergic reactions to botulinum injections, asthma, breathing difficulties, swallowing problems, or muscular or nerve disorders, BOTOX®, XEOMIN®, and JEUVEAU®may not be right for you. Due to unknown potential hazards to newborns, these injections are not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The BOTOX®,XEOMIN®, and JEUVEAU® Consultation

Using JEUVEAU®, XEOMIN® or BOTOX® for aesthetic purposes is a serious decision that should be made with the help of Dr. Hurvitz. If you are thinking about getting either injection, come in for a consultation.

By the end of this consultation, you should know how many injections you will need, how long the treatment will last, what other options are available, the potential complications, and any medications or supplements that are contraindicated.

JEUVEAU®, BOTOX® and XEOMIN® Administration

Muscle relaxants such as BOTOX®, JEUVEAU® and XEOMIN® are injected into targeted muscles using a fine needle. Typically, no anesthesia is required, though a topical anesthetic may be used to numb the region first if needed.

The exact dosage and number of injections vary depending on the problem being treated. Furthermore, while the effects decrease after a few months, individual results may vary.

BOTOX®, JEUVEAU® and XEOMIN® Treatment Aftercare

To limit the danger of adverse effects, it’s critical to properly follow Dr. Hurvitz’s aftercare guidelines. You can typically continue your normal activities after receiving these injections. They do not require any recovery time or downtime.

To avoid complications, do not massage the treated region. Avoiding alcohol and tobacco use for one to two days will help control any post-treatment bruising or swelling.
