Do you have unwanted wrinkles, frown lines or TMJ Problems?
If you have an interest in anti-aging treatments, then you have likely heard of Jeuveau by Evolus. The benefits of Jeuveau by Evolus for wrinkles are well known. However, we offer Jeuveau by Evolus as part of our dental services to improve your oral health as well.
Here at Michelle B. Deutch's, we typically recommend Jeuveau by Evolus treatment to help our patients have or maintain youthful facial appearance. We may also recommend it to address the painful symptoms associated with TMJ disorders. In many cases, it is an effective, although temporary, its an alternative to more traditional TMJ treatments.
What Is Jeuveau by Evolus?
Jeuveau by Evolus is a botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is a medication derived from a bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum, which is traditionally known to cause botulism, a rare foodborne illness. To create Jeuveau by Evolus, the active neurotoxin is harvested, isolated, and purified in a laboratory.
This laboratory process makes Jeuveau by Evolus completely safe and effective for treatment. Side effects, while they do occur, are rare. Most patients experience little or no complications following their treatment.
How Does Jeuveau by Evolus Work?
Jeuveau by Evolus works by blocking the nerve signals that are responsible for muscle contractions. The medication only affects nerves associated with motor function. When injected into the muscles, Jeuveau by Evolus can help eliminate or reduce the wrinkle lines caused by certain expressions.
The medication takes effect almost instantly. We can sometimes see results 2 hrs after treatment or as short as 2 days, everyone varies. On 2nd week or so Jeuveau by Evolus will continue to relax the muscles, causing the targeted wrinkles to become less visable. While the treatment is temporary, the results could last for up to six months. If you want sustained results, we may recommend Jeuveau by Evolus injections at regular intervals.

Jeuveau by Evolus And Your TMJ
Your TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is the complicated sliding hinge largely responsible for your ability to chew, speak, smile, and yawn. In other words, this joint allows you to move your jaw forward, backward, and side-to-side. Any problem that prevents you from properly using your TMJ is known as a TMJ disorder or TMD.
Because the medication targets the nerves that control muscle contractions, Jeuveau by Evolus can be used to control unwanted jaw clenching. People who clench their jaw or grind their teeth may be doing so unconsciously. Jeuveau by Evolus can relax the muscles, prevent you from clenching your jaw, and alleviate painful symptoms as a result, especially when used with a nightguard.
It is important to note that Jeuveau by Evolus is a temporary solution to these problems. We may recommend Jeuveau by Evolus in tandem with other treatments, such as stress counseling or the use of an oral appliance. However, Jeuveau by Evolus can help you establish better habits involuntarily, leading to longer-lasting results.
