There is a reason that neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are the most popular cosmetic injections in the U.S. – they work! Over 7.4 million neuromodulator procedures were performed in 2018, up 3% from the previous year, more than any other type of cosmetic procedure. Botox has remained the dominant neuromodulator due to its specific molecule size and formulation. Now there is a new option that can rival Botox. Jeuveau injections were FDA-approved in February 2019 and are now available at Arcadia Wellness Center.
What Makes Jeuveau Unique?
Jeuveau is pronounced “Jū vō” and is the French word for new. This neuromodulator was created by Evolus, a beauty-tech company that focuses on cutting-edge medical breakthroughs for their products. Jeuveau uses prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs, which is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A. And like Botox, Jeuveau offers the molecule size 900 kDa protein. What makes Jeuveau unique is the drying and purifying process that Evolus uses, believed to make Jeuveau even more potent than the top-runner Botox.
Like all neuromodulator injections, Jeuveau can help smooth away those frown lines on the brow or diminish crow’s feet around the eyes. It works the same as other injections in the neuromodulator category, blocking muscle contractions. This can reduce the formation of the “11” between the brows, horizontal brow lines and other lines caused by muscle movement. Typically, results are evident in a few days and can last up to four months, similar to the other neuromodulators. Due to its highly purified form, some people who have not been able to use Botox may be able to use Jeuveau. to get the gold standard in wrinkle and line reduction. There have been some reports of Jeuveau injections lasting slightly longer than Botox but results can vary by patient.
