Ever since Botox hit the scene in 2002, people have been using botulinium toxin to reduce their fine lines. It’s a great choice that offers safe, reliable results without plastic surgery. The biggest drawback for clients, though, has always been price. Recently, a new alternative to Botox has been revealed, and it’s been proven to offer great results.
Evolus’s own Jeuveau is a new way to get rid of (and prevent) frown lines from happening. Virtual Skin Spa is proud to offer Jeuveau, a new alternative to Botox, at our Long Island office.
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is now being called the “New Botox,” and rightfully so. It is the first neurotoxin treatment to be approved for cosmetic procedures by the FDA. This toxin is based off botulinium toxin and reduces wrinkles through the same face-relaxing methods that Botox uses.
Is Jeuveau Safe?
Absolutely! This injectable treatment has completed several major clinical studies that have proven it to be a safe way to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Jeuveau’s excellent scores and high standards of safety allowed it to get FDA approval for the use of wrinkle reduction. To date, there have been no adverse effects found with typical use of Jeuveau.
How Long Has Jeuveau Been Around?
Though it was only introduced in the United States market this year, Jeuveau still has a very long history outside of America. Jeuveau was regularly used in South Korea and other parts of Asia for years under the name Nabota. It has been a hit with the plastic surgery scene abroad, and is now coming to the US.
What Can Jeuveau Treat?
Jeuveau is an excellent choice for people who want to reduce wrinkles in the following areas:
- Glabellar lines (The “11s” between your eyes!)
- Crows’ feet
- Laugh lines
- Forehead lines (Also known as “worry lines.”)
- Wrinkles around your mouth
Simply put, you can use Jeuveau anywhere that Botox is typically applied!
What’s The Difference Between Jeuveau and Botox?
Jeuveau and Botox really aren’t that different. They are two brands of the same product, each with slight differences when it comes to how they are refined. Both weigh about the same, work the same way, and also are both made from botulinium toxin A.
Unlike Dysport, Xeomin, or Juvederm, Jeuveau and Botox can be used the exact same way. They can be stored the same way, injected the same way, and yes, will deliver the same results. The biggest difference is price. Jeuveau is a little less pricey than its predecessor, Botox.
How Does Jeuveau Work?
Jeuveau works by blocking nerves that control movement in areas that are prone to fine lines. By preventing muscle contractions, Jeuveau prevents fine lines from getting worse while softening the lines that may have already developed.
Why Use Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is an excellent alternative to other injectables, and is considered to be just as effective as Botox. It is safe, requires no downtime, and also provides excellent wrinkle-fighting results.
What Is A Jeuveau Procedure Like?
Patients who book a Jeuveau procedure get to come to Virtual Skin Spa’s office, where a specialist will examine their face. Once they determine the amount of units needed, they will sanitize your face and then inject the Jeuveau into key points in your skin. This entire procedure takes a maximum of 15 minutes to do.
Who Can Use Jeuveau?
Both men and women over 18 can use Jeuveau, as long as they don’t have a history of allergic reactions to dermal injections like Botox or Xeomin. Currently, Jeuveau is only FDA-approved for cosmetic purposes.
Of course, there is one contraindication to be aware of. People who are allergic to Botox should not use Jeuveau, since they are basically the same thing. That being said, Botox allergies are extremely rare and shouldn’t be a concern for most patients.
How Long Does Jeuveau Last?
Jeuveau is a wrinkle reducer that lasts approximately 3 to 5 months, with most the effects lasting for a total of 4 months for most patients.
