My first Jeuveau patients!

· Neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau and Xeomin) · Comments Off on My first Jeuveau patients!

Pictured are Stephanie Lee, MD (right), a long-time patient, who brought her friend Soo Han, MD. 

Stephanie, who has tried Botox and Dysport previously, came in for a neurotoxin treatment.  I asked if she had heard about Jeuveau.  After I shared the story of the newest toxin to be introduced in nearly a decade, she wanted to be my first patient.

I told her what I learned at the physician advisory meeting* earlier this month.  Jeuveau is made in Korea exclusively for Evolus and it is distributed by Evolus in the USA.

Both ladies were excited to try something new.  They also mentioned that people in Korea are much more likely to start toxin treatments in their 20s, so this new approach to marketing to the young is the way to go.

Preparing for a cosmetic treatment—what you need to know

· Cosmetic Procedures · Comments Off on Preparing for a cosmetic treatment—what you need to know

If you are planning to get Botox, a filler, a chemical peel or a laser treatment, planning ahead can decrease problems during and after the treatment.

Stop exfoliating about one week before your treatment, especially if you’re getting a chemical peel or laser treatment.  Also temporarily eliminate any retinoid creams as part of your daily skin care.  Don’t add any new products right before your treatment to avoid problems with irritation.

Ask if you should avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E or fish oil (any omega-3).  These blood thinners can increase bruising.  Usually you would stop talking these one week before your appointment.

If you bruise easily and will be getting fillers, you might consider arnica montana tablets.  Found at health food stores, arnica is an herb that may help to reduce swelling and bruising.

Tanning, and even sunless tanning creams, interferes with some treatments like IPL or laser hair removal, so plan ahead when you schedule your treatment.

Alcohol is also a blood thinner so eliminate that from your diet immediately before your procedure.

If you have a propensity to get cold sores, take your prescription antiviral medication, such as Valtrex, the day before your treatment.  Reschedule your treatment if you have an active cold sore breakout—a treatment could spread the virus to other areas on your face.

Ask about any restrictions you may have after your treatment.  In some cases, you may be asked not to exercise, or you might be given other limitations.  After a chemical peel or laser treatment, for example, you’ll be asked not to exfoliate for a certain time period.  To decrease swelling and bruising you may be asked to ice the treatment area periodically.
