Jeuveau injection is the latest cutting-edge neuromodulator that was approved by the FDA in February 2019. Jeuveau is the first neurotoxin that has been developed and approved purely for cosmetic use. When injected into the muscle, it will temporarily improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines or the glabellar lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Jeuveau Vs. Botox – what is the difference?
Jeuveau is structurally similar to the other neurotoxins and is even being marketed as NEWTOX and like them, it is used to improve the appearance of glabellar lines. Jeuveau is the first alternative to Botox in a decade and makes use of a state–of–the–art technology called ‘Hi-Pure’ for its manufacturing. This essentially means that they have used additional steps to purify the protein in Jeuveau.
What can you expect during your Jeuveau treatment?
You will not require anesthesia for your treatment, but you may ask for a topical cream to numb the area. A very thin needle is used to inject small amounts of Jeuveau to the area once it is cleansed. Your injector will carefully choose the specific muscles for your treatment ensuring that only the wrinkle producing muscles are weakened with the neurotoxin. This makes sure that you retain your natural facial expressions and the fact that you got a treatment is not visible to your friends or colleagues.
Your treatment will only take about 15 minutes.
What results can you expect?
Just like other neuromodulators, Jeuveau will stop the muscle movement improving the appearance of frown lines and preventing wrinkles. Jeuveau results last for several months for most patients and you may not require another treatment session for 4 to 6 months.
