What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a new drug approved by the FDA in February 2019 for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines called the “elevens” – short, vertical parallel lines or wrinkles between the eyebrows. Jeuveau is first new Botox alternative in ten years. It is made with the same botulinum toxin Type A that is in Botox.
The safety and effectiveness are similar to Botox. Treatment takes about 3-5 days to take effect and lasts about 3-6 months, but duration varies depending on each individual’s metabolism. It is projected to cost about 25% less than Botoxâ, and due to a new manufacturing process, it may last longer than Botox.
How does Jeuveau work?
Jeuveau blocks the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, halting the muscle contractions that cause and deepen wrinkles, to smooth facial wrinkles. It is beneficial for dynamic wrinkles that gradually deepen with repeated facial expression.
Treatment with Jeuveau
Jeuveau is injected into the muscles in the forehead to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It works like Botox, Dysport, and Zeominâ to block nerve signals to reduce muscle activity that causes deep grooves. It is also used at the corners of the eyes to temporarily halt muscle contractions that cause crow’s feet. It can be used for horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows that make us look angry and tired, to soften crow’s feet, smooth the chin, lift the corners of the mouth and reduce the appearance of neck bands.
In addition to treating glabellar lines, our dermatologists have the skills and expertise to:
- Create a mini brow lift using Jeuveau to elevate the brows and open the eyes.
- Reduce the appearance of vertical neck bands
- Reduce a gummy smile by weakening upper lip elevation for a more balanced smile
- Lift the corners of the mouth to relax a frown and improve your smile.
- Smooth chin dimpling
- Reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines.
