Jeuveau is a botulinum toxin type A injection used in the treatment of wrinkles. It’s also sometimes called the new Botox or “Newtox” for short because it’s a new version of the same active ingredient used in original Botox Cosmetic injections.
While Jeuveau shares some similarities with Botox, there are key characteristics that make this injection stand apart from other botulinum toxin injections. Jeuveau is a better fit for certain types of facial wrinkles compared to Botox and is offered at a slightly less expensive price.
Both Botox and Jeuveau contain the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. This is neurotoxin that works by relaxing muscles beneath the skin. When used as a wrinkle treatment, these types of injections create a smoother appearance in the skin.
Patients can see results in as little as 2-3 days. The duration of its effectiveness lasts for about 3-12 months. Effectiveness depends on different factors, including the frequency of treatment.
Jeuveau positions itself as an injector for younger persons, namely millennials, who want to stop the early signs of aging. It’s commonly used to reduce forehead and frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, and other fine lines and wrinkles.
Fine lines and wrinkles are often considered to be the main sign of aging, but sun damage and skin sagging & texture also inhibit a youthful glow.
Combining a Neurotoxin Injection + VI Peel targets ALL signs of aging.
