What can I say? People are ready for something new, and Jeuveau™ is the first real competitor to hit the market since Botox® was released in 2002. While Botox has been the go-to for treating forehead wrinkles for so long, it’s more than exciting to finally be able to provide patients with another option.
Here’s the gist on Jeuveau
Rhyming with “hello,” Jeuveau, which received FDA approval in February of 2019, is a modern-made neurotoxin used to treat the exact same areas as Botox, including moderate to severe frown lines, or those little wrinkles between the eyebrows. Just like Botox, it prevents your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex.
According to Evolus, the maker of Jeuveau, the product has been extensively studied in over 2,100 patients across 5 clinical studies in which patients received an average of 3 treatments over the course of one year. You can even see some of the before and after photos for yourself right there on their website.
Jeuveau vs. Botox: What’s the difference?
While similar in more aspects than not, studies have shown Jeuveau might last a little bit longer than Botox. The onset of it may also be a little bit faster and a bit more complete so you don’t have that interval where it’s not all quite there yet.
The main difference is that unlike Botox that also works to treat certain medical conditions such as migraines, Jeuveau is dedicated to aesthetics only.
Are you ready for Jeuveau?
This is truly a premium product that gives patients another option, and it’s the first one that’s just as good as Botox. Even if you’ve been on the fence about receiving injectable treatments for frown lines, Jeuveau may just be the option for which you’ve been waiting.
If you’re ready to get rid of frown lines with Jeuveau, you’ll be thrilled to learn that it’s now available at dermatology centers around the country, including the Skin Wellness Dermatology in Homewood and Chelsea, AL.
