Jeuveau (pronounced joo-voh) is the latest Botox alternative that has gained a lot of attention as a great option to help treat unwanted facial wrinkles and lines. Like Botox, Jeaveau is considered a neurotoxin. However, Jeuveau is a different type of toxin that can be used for the exact same cosmetic indications as Botox. Whereas Botox is made of onabotulinumtoxinA, Jeuveau is comprised of prabotulinumtoxinA. Jeuveau has undergone extensive analysis during multiple cosmetic studies and has been shown to be just as effective as Botox when it comes to treating those pesky forehead and glabella wrinkles.
You will hear many people referring to Jeuveau as ‘newtox’ since it is the newest option for treating facial wrinkles and frown lines. Since there hasn’t been a new type of Botox treatment for many years, you will also hear Jeuveau referred to as ‘the modern Botox’ – and often times referenced as ‘not your mama’s Botox’.
How is Jeuveau Treatment Done?
Cosmetic treatment with Jeauveau is done in the same manner as Botox and Dysport. In fact, the pattern of injection with Jeuveau is almost identical to Botox treatment. Results are typically seen within 1-3 days after Jeuveau treatment.
