The Jeuveau™ Difference

For years, patients have felt limited with their treatment options for forehead wrinkles and frown lines between the eyebrows. With Botox® Cosmetic being the leader in the market for nearly ten years, it was the only choice for fighting these signs of aging. The FDA has recently approved Jeuveau™, a safe and effective alternative to BOTOX®.

 

Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A, the same “active ingredient” in Botox Cosmetic. Much like Botox, Jeuveau is composed of the same 900 kDa protein but undergoes a different purification and drying process termed Hi-Pure technology.

Jeuveau vs. Botox

Jeuveau was designed and positioned to be a premium competitor to Botox.

In a head-to-head study between Jeuveau™ and Botox® Cosmetic, patients who’d received an equal quantity of Jeuveau™ were more consistently satisfied with their results at the 5-month mark than those who’d received BOTOX®.

Jeuveau is different from Botox in that it undergoes a different purification process, as well as a different drying process. The vacuum drying process of Jeuveau has been shown to not damage the botulinum toxin protein. Therefore, it is theoretically possible that Jeuveau may have better potency to other wrinkles relaxers, aka neuromodulators.

Jeuveau is a new option in the medical aesthetics market to temporary improve the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox is still a tried and true excellent treatment that works similarly to Jeuveau.

Can I have Jeuveau if I’ve had Botox injections?

Yes! There are no limitations to patients that have used other products. Jeuveau is very similar to Botox and are both are derived from the same active ingredient and work similarly to improve the appearance of lines and creases on the face.

Why should I choose Jeuveau over Botox?

Choosing one brand of neuromodulator over another is often a decision made by yourself and your Injection Specialist. Our Specialists will work closely with you to help decide what one is right for you based on your individual goals.

Is there downtime with Jeuveau?

There is little to no downtime with Jeuveau injections, though with any form of injections, there is always a risk of bruising and pinpoint bleeding. The majority of Grand Pearl Spa and Plastic Surgery Associates patients do not look like they have had any treatment minutes after the injections.

How long does it take to see the results of Jeuveau?

Although some patients can see an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles treated with Jeuveau as early as 2-3 days, most patients will see full effect within 7-10 days following the treatment.

How long does Jeuveau last?

Jeuveau lasts several months and patient satisfaction is still high at even 5 months. Most patients will have anywhere from 3-6 months of longevity.
