What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a type of cosmetic injectable known as a neuromodulator. Jeuveau is derived from the same botulinum toxin type A used in Botox and Dysport®. It’s sometimes called “Newtox” because of its similarities to the popular injectable Botox.
When injected into specific muscles in the face, Jeuveau relaxes their activity, so you don’t have dramatic lines when you smile or frown. Jeuveau injections are a noninvasive way to effectively create a more youthful, pleasant expression.
How does Jeuveau differ from Botox?
Jeuveau works better for certain types of wrinkles and comes at a lower price. Jeuveau’s formula differs slightly from that of other neuromodulators like Botox. It works especially well on glabellar lines. These frown lines between the brows can make you look angry or stressed.
Right now, Jeuveau is only FDA-approved for use on these glabellar lines. It can be used in other areas, like crow’s feet or horizontal forehead lines, but these uses are considered “off-label.” Your provider will let you know if they’re using Jeuveau for off-label treatments.
Jeuveau also comes at a lower price point than Botox.
What is it like to get Jeuveau?
Your appointment for Jeuveau only takes 15-20 minutes. Your provider cleanses your skin and identifies the exact spots for injection.
You feel a slight prick at the time of each injection. The treatment is quick, however, and most people do well. If you’re concerned about the sensation, talk to your provider about using a numbing cream or ice before applying the injections.
You can start to see results within 2-10 days.
The effects of Jeaveau last about 3-4 months. The team at Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy can help you schedule additional treatments to maintain its effects.
Do I need to schedule downtime following Jeuveau injections?
You can go right back to work or school after Jeuveau injections. There’s no need to take time off from any activities. You should avoid rubbing the treated areas for a few hours to prevent unwanted distribution of the medication.
