Smoothing Frown Lines in Newton and the Boston Area
Many cosmetic treatments were originally developed with medical uses in mind, but Jeuveau™ at the Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics was designed from the start to relax wrinkle-causing muscles for a more youthful look! A prescription-only medication like BOTOX®,nvey the desired expression. Dysport®, and Xeomin®, Jeuveau™ temporarily reduces frown lines after a single session.
Though Jeuveau™ is a newer addition to the world of aesthetics, its formula is based on a chemical that has been safely used for decades. Dr. Holly Happe has been working with similar treatments since before 2006, when she first opened her practice. As a board-certified physician, she approaches every treatment with a focus on patient safety and beautiful results, relying on her years of experience.
What is Jeuveau™?
Clostridium botulinum bacteria naturally create a chemical that has a unique ability to temporarily interfere with how messages in the body are sent and received by nerves. When this chemical, known as a neuromodulator, is properly purified and injected into a muscle, it reduces that muscle’s ability to contract—even when a signal comes from the brain.
Jeuveau™ is specifically used for inhibiting contractions in the glabellar area, which sits directly between the eyebrows. When these muscles engage, they pull the surrounding skin into small folds known as frown lines.
By keeping the muscles at rest, Jeuveau™ prevents moderate to severe frown lines from forming. The glabellar area stays smooth, even as other muscles on the face work to convey the desired expression.
What Is the Newton Jeuveau™ Experience?
Every treatment at Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics starts with Dr. Holly Happe taking your full medical history and performing a total examination of your face. Based on the wrinkles and lines she sees when you make various expressions, she will determine the ideal treatment.

Dr. Happe’s extensive experience in pain minimization influences every session. While you will likely feel a small pinch or pressure where the Jeuveau™ is injected into the muscle, every step is taken to not only ensure the medication is going where it will be most effective, but also to keep stress and discomfort to a minimum.
Results will be visible within a couple of days after the injections, with activity fading in the glabellar muscles until they sit at rest. Women and men who choose Jeuveau™ often see their ideal results in about 30 days, with the smooth look lasting for months. Eventually, the effects wear off. Three to four treatment sessions a year can work well to provide an ongoing youthful look.
What Complements Jeuveau™?
Neuromodulators work only on lines related to muscle activity. Creases that develop due to volume loss require a different treatment, such as Juvederm®, Bellafill®, Sculptra®, or Restylane®. These dermal fillers can add volume for a smoother look, as well as address acne scarring, hollows, and more.
