Non-Surgical Injectables Jeuveau®

Botox® has been around for decades, helping people smooth out lines and wrinkles. It isn’t your only option for injectable neuromodulators, however. Jeuveau® is a more recent addition to the anti-wrinkle toolbox. Since receiving FDA approval in 2019, Jeuveau® has been nicknamed “NewTox” as it has quickly gained popularity like its predecessor.

What is Jeuveau®?

Like Botox®, Jeuveau® is an injectable treatment for wrinkles made with botulinum toxin. Unlike Botox® and similar brands, Jeuveau® is the first botulinum toxin injectable formulated solely for aesthetic purposes. It is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines.

This neurotoxin temporarily paralyzes targeted facial muscles, causing them to relax and smooth out dynamic wrinkles. When your facial muscles make repetitive movements daily to smile, frown, or squint, they can eventually form dynamic wrinkles. The botulinum toxin blocks nerve signals, stopping these repetitive muscle movements. As the muscles relax, your dynamic wrinkles disappear.

The Jeuveau® formula is very similar to Botox®, more so than its other competitors like Dysport® and Xeomin®. Still, its unique differences may make it more effective for some patients. The Langdon Center offers Botox®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau®. Dr. Langdon will help you determine which of these neuromodulators is best for you during a detailed consultation. Jeuveau® is typically used for frown lines, also known as glabellar lines or “elevens.” However, it may also be used for other dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead wrinkles or lines around the mouth.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Jeuveau® procedure is fairly simple and entails one of our expert providers injecting the medication into the muscles responsible for your moderate-to-severe dynamic wrinkles. We recognize that each patient has unique needs and aesthetic goals, and you can trust our team to design the ideal Jeuveau® treatment plan just for you. A Jeuveau® treatment only takes about 15 minutes, making it a convenient lunch break procedure.

Some patients may have other injectables performed at the same time. You may have another type of neuromodulator to treat wrinkles in other parts of the face, or you may choose to receive dermal fillers to restore lost facial volume and enhance your facial contours.

Jeuveau® is a non-invasive anti-aging treatment, so you can resume work and your daily activities immediately. Jeuveau® injections require no downtime and have minimal side effects. It’s normal to experience minor bruising, redness, or swelling at the injection sites. These side effects should only last a few hours to a couple of days.

Though you can return to your daily routine immediately after Jeuveau® injections, Dr. Langdon may give you a few aftercare tips to minimize swelling and maximize your results. He may recommend not lying down or bending over for the first few hours and avoiding exercise, alcohol, or excessive heat for the first day after your treatment.

One of the advantages of Jeuveau® over Botox® is that results may appear faster. After a Jeuveau® treatment, you can expect a significant improvement in dynamic wrinkles in as little as one week. 

The results of Jeuveau® typically last three to four months but may persist longer. You are welcome to return for additional treatments whenever you’d like to maintain your more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance.

One of the reasons we offer multiple types of neuromodulators is that each patient is unique and may respond better to one formula than another. If you’ve tried Botox® or Dysport® but weren’t satisfied with the results, or if those brands are no longer working as well for you as they used to, Jeuveau® may be an effective alternative. Dr. Langdon can help you determine which neuromodulator is best for your specific needs.

You may be a good candidate for Jeuveau® if you want to prevent and temporarily improve moderate to severe wrinkles. This “NewTox” is an especially great option if you’re bothered by forehead lines, crow’s feet wrinkles, and vertical creases between your eyebrows. 

Jeuveau® is safe and effective for most adults and all skin types. Younger patients may benefit from Jeuveau® to prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming, while older patients can use it to smooth out existing lines. We do not recommend Jeuveau® if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have facial lines independently of muscle contraction, or live with a serious illness or neuromuscular condition.
