All About Jeuveau
For nearly a decade, there were just three neurotoxins to choose from–Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.
However, many patients in the Washington DC area will be pleased to learn that a new, FDA-approved neuromodulator recently entered the market called Jeuveau NEWTOX.
Continue reading to learn all about Jeuveau, including how it works, where it can be injected, and how it compares to Botox.
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a new FDA-approved neurotoxin for the treatment of facial wrinkles and lines.
Like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, it is comprised of a highly-purified form of botulinum toxin type A and injected into targeted facial muscles to effectively relax expression lines.
How Does Jeuveau Work?
As a neuromodulator, Jeuveau blocks communication between nerves and muscles to temporarily inhibit muscle contraction.
This paralytic effect diminishes wrinkles and lines and produces smoother skin for a period of three-to-four months.
Where Can Jeuveau Be Injected?
Currently, Jeuveau is cleared for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
It can also be applied off-label to address a wide-range of concerns, including horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, neck bands, bunny lines, downturned corners of the mouth, and a gummy smile.
What’s the Difference Between Jeuveau and Botox?
Despite being produced by different aesthetic companies and manufactured in separate facilities, there are a number of commonalities between Botox and Jeuveau.
To start, both products are derived from Clostridium botulinum bacterium and injected into overactive muscles.
Jeuveau and Botox are also structurally similar, and each have a molecular weight of 900 kDa. As such, their safety profiles, efficacy, and applications are quite comparable.
In fact, a skilled and experienced injector like Dr. Hayre can use Botox and Jeuveau interchangeably to achieve natural-looking neurotoxin results.
