Jeuveau is one of the newest versions of botulinum toxin A injectables designed to treat specific types of facial lines. If you’re concerned about facial wrinkles and fine lines, a Jeuveau injection may be a great solution to restore healthy, younger-looking skin.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is also called “Newtox” because it is a newer version of Botox, one of the first and most well-known injectables. Like Botox, Jeuveau is FDA-approved and used to treat wrinkles, but there are some differences when it comes to the type of wrinkles each injectable can best treat.
Jeuveau vs. Botox
Both Jeuveau and Botox use botulinum toxin A, a safe neurotoxin that relaxes the muscles to smooth the appearance of the skin. Botox was first approved for cosmetic use in 2002, over ten years before Jeuveau’s approval in 2019. Although these injectables both use the same active ingredient, the formulas are slightly different, so people sometimes respond better to one or the other.
Botox can treat glabellar lines, more commonly known as frown lines, between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines, and wrinkles at the corners of your eyes called crow’s feet. Although Botox works well, Jeuveau was approved to solely treat glabellar lines so it may be the more effective option. In two separate trials conducted by the FDA, 67% and 71% of people saw significant improvement in the appearance of their glabellar lines after Jeuveau treatment. Jeuveau is also cheaper, making it a great starting option if you are new to facial injections and fillers.
Your provider will first discuss what you are hoping to achieve so that they can determine how many injections you will need and where these injections will be placed. This is a quick procedure that only takes about 15 minutes and no downtime is required. Jeuveau will be injected into five sites around your frown lines and you will begin to notice results right away, although it will take about a week for the filler to settle. After that week, you will see the full results of smooth, youthful skin.
What to Expect
One of the benefits of non-invasive injections is that there is no need for downtime or recovery! The only thing you should be cautious about is rubbing the injection site since this can shift the filler and increase the risk of side effects. The most common side effects are bruising and swelling, but these should resolve within a few days. If you are satisfied with your results, you can return every 3-4 months as the effects naturally wear off.
