TOP FDA Approved Wrinkle Treatment 2019 | Jeuveau #Newtox
Jeuveau, the latest Neurotoxin on the market is now available at Aesthetic Body Sculpture Clinic in Atlanta and Warner Robins Ga
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A, the same “active ingredient” in Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin. Similar to Botox, Jeuveau is composed of the same 900 kDa protein but undergoes a different purification and drying process termed Hi-Pure technology.
Is Jeuveau Available in the U.S.?
Yes. Jeuveau was FDA-approved in February 2019 for injection of facial muscles to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Jeuveau is also approved in Canada under a different trade name.
What Makes Jeuveau different from Botox?
Jeuveau was designed and positioned to be a premium competitor to Botox. In clinical studies, Jeuveau was found to soften the appearance of frown lines as well as Botox. This is called a “non-superiority” study. 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 not to damage the botulinum toxin protein. Therefore, it is theoretically possible that Jeuveau may have better potency to other wrinkles relaxers.
Where Can Jeuveau Be Injected?
Jeuveauis FDA-approved on the label for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Similar to Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, Jeuveau can be injected “off-label” by skilled physicians to treat unwanted wrinkles and overactive muscles over many areas of the face and neck. These include forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines of the nose, wrinkles around the mouth, the lip flip, gummy smile, pebbly chin (peau d’orange), and neck bands (platysmal bands).
Jeuveau Injections FAQ
Is Jeuveau Safe?
Yes. A treatment studied in over five clinical studies that included over 2100 patients. Two large-scale FDA-trials were required to demonstrate that Jeuveau was both safe and works for frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A products have been used for the cosmetic treatment of facial wrinkles in millions of patients for nearly two decades.
What is the Jeuveau injection procedure like? Is it painful?
The Jeuveau injection procedure is quick, easy, and painless and should be similar to past experiences with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin injections. Dr. Slater utilizes techniques and equipment to create minimal discomfort during the procedure. A typical injection session with Jeuveau lasts only a few minutes.
Can I Use Jeuveau as a Wrinkle Treatment if I have only had Botox or Dysport in the Past?
Yes. There is no limitation to patients that have used other products to try out Jeuveau. Results will likely be quite similar, although individual variability is possible.
Are Results from Jeuveau Seen Immediately?
No. Although some individuals may notice wrinkle relaxation within the first 24 to 48 hours, most patients see a full effect from Jeuveau within 4 to 7 days following the injection procedure.
How long does Jeuveau last? Does Jeuveau last longer than Botox or Dysport?
Jeuveau has a comparable duration to other neurotoxins such as Botox. These results typically last 3-4 months.
What is the downtime and side effects following Jeuveau treatment?
There is typically no downtime following treatment with Jeuveau. In terms of side effects, product labeling is similar to that of Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. Most patients have no side effects following treatment, and Jeuveau like other toxins are deemed very safe by the FDA.
Who should not use Jeuveau as a Wrinkle Treatment?
Limitations or contraindications to Jeuveau are the same as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. Individuals with an allergy to any part of Jeuveau or botulinum toxin type A treatment should not use Jeuveau. Patients with certain neuromuscular conditions such as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and myasthenia gravis should avoid use. Jeuveau should not be injected in an area of active skin inflammation or infection. Alert your physician to any medications you may be taking as rarely some may cause interactions with the effect of Jeuveau.
Can I use Jeuveau with other procedures?
Yes, Jeuveau can be combined with other procedures, occasionally on the same day. Some injectable filler treatments provide better results when combined with toxin treatment. However, Dr. Slater generally recommends performing light, laser, Vivace RF micro-needling, and other skin procedures on a separate visit. You can, however, receive your filler injections such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma and Sculptra the same day. We recommend refraining from exercising the same day of injections.
How much does the Jeuveau Wrinkle Treatment cost and how much do I need?
Prices for Jeuveau are comparable to Botox but vary by provider. Our patients are charged based on the amount of Jeuveau they receive. The strength of muscle movement and desired areas of treatment will determine the cost of the procedure. As the degree of improvement and effect of Jeuveau is highly dependent on the injector’s experience and understanding of the product, it is encouraged that our double board-certified physician Dr. Slater performs Jeuveau.
