Jeuveau® is an FDA-approved prescription cosmetic medicine made from the botulinum toxin type A. Jeuveau® was approved for cosmetic use in 2019 and is the most current approved neurotoxin. Like Botox®, Jeuveau® is introduced into the muscles to temporarily decrease the look of moderate to deep frown lines between your eyebrows. Flexing the muscles between your eyebrows is what causes wrinkles, and when Jeuveau® is injected, it prevents the nerves from instructing your facial muscles to flex and cause wrinkles. Jeuveau® is injected in small doses into the basic muscles of your forehead to numb muscular functions that cause wrinkles. Different characteristics make Jeuveau® stand apart from different botulinum toxin injections. Jeuveau® may be a better fit for you, and it may be somewhat less expensive than other neurotoxins. Discuss the possibilities of using Jeuveau® with your skincare professional.
In trials, Jeuveau® temporarily improved the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines that make you look older and angry. In some patients, Jeuveau® produced visible results in two to three days after treatment. Visible results get better over time, and after 30 days, you will see a vast improvement in frown lines. Jeuveau may last from five to six months, but the stability varies from patient to patient. Jeuveau® is safe, and there is little downtime.
