A combination of factors causes facial wrinkles to appear. Wrinkles develop due to molecular changes, reduction of collagen, free radical damage – and facial motions. When you frown, focus, or squint, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to wrinkle and crease. Squinting, laughing, and concentrating are the constant facial motions causing crow’s feet, the tiny lines developing around your eyes.
Is Jeuveau a good alternative to BOTOX?
Jeuveau is a newcomer to the aesthetic market and a safe and effective alternative to BOTOX. FDA approved in 2019, Jeuveau is produced by a slightly different method and was developed strictly for the aesthetic market, whereas BOTOX is FDA approved to treat a range of conditions. If BOTOX injections are not producing the smoothing effect they did earlier, Jeuveau is an excellent alternative.
Cosmetically, BOTOX or Jeuveau are primarily injected into the upper third of the face to diminish wrinkles between the eyes, on the forehead, and around the eyes to smooth crow’s feet. It can also be injected to brighten the area around the eyes by lifting the brows slightly, and when placed around the mouth, it can give the lips a slight lift, adding volume to your pout when injected in small amounts.
There are many medical conditions, too, that BOTOX can successfully treat. TMJ, muscle stiffness, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and chronic migraines are complaints that could be treated with the administration of BOTOX.
