The Specifics

What is Jeuveau®?

Jeuveau® by Evolus contains the primary active ingredient prabotulinumtoxinA. Targeted to the millennial population with a slightly lower price point than Botox® by Allergan, Jeuveau® has a similar profile to Botox® — composed primarily of human albumin and sodium chloride (mixing solution). Due to the relative newness of the product (it was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use only in February 2019), there is limited data on Jeuveau®, however, it has shown a similar safety profile and efficacy to Botox®.

Where to Use Neurotoxin vs. Filler

Botox vs. Filler Uses on Face

Botulinum toxin type A (and all of its specially formulated offshoots like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) generally functions by inhibiting cell transmissions between nerve and muscle cells causing a flaccid paralysis. These are temporary results, as the body will naturally degrade the toxin over time.

What cosmetic concerns does Jeuveau® treat?

  1. Fine Lines & Wrinkles: Jeuveau® injections into facial muscles around areas prone to the development of fine lines and wrinkles can smooth, rejuvenate, and restore the skin appearance (think: frown lines, crow's feet, horizontal forehead lines, etc.)

Who is the ideal candidate for Jeuveau®?

The ideal candidate for a Jeuveau® injection is a patient looking for a safe, efficacious, and temporary solution to alleviate and mitigate the development of age related skin changes. Jeuveau® is very similar to Botox® and those interested in an injectable wrinkle reducer may consider both. Jeuveau® is not recommended for those under 18, women who are pregnant or nursing, anyone with an allergy to the components of Jeuveau®, or those with certain chronic medical conditions.

What is the average recovery associated with Jeuveau®?

Most candidates encounter few side effects lasting no more than 24 hours. Minimal swelling, pain, and redness resolve almost immediately after the procedure and most individuals resume activities directly following the injections.

What are the potential side effects of Jeuveau®?

Common side effects of Jeuveau® injections include skin reactions like redness, dryness, and flaking. Warmth, itchiness, tightness, injection site infection, and/or bruising may also occur. Some candidates experience dizziness, weakness, headache, or vision problems and these side effects usually resolve within two days. More serious, and less common side effects of Jeuveau® include double vision, muscle spasms, severe muscle weakness, hoarseness, and difficulty breathing. These types of reactions typically resolve within three to four months. Severe allergic reactions can occur.

What can someone expect from the results of Jeuveau®?

Jeuveau® results are temporary, and begin to take effect after three to five days. Full results are usually visible within two weeks. Maintenance treatments are usually needed every three to four months depending on the treatment area and individual.

What is the average cost of Jeuveau®?

The average cost of Jeuveau® is about 20 to 30 percent less than Botox® and ranges from $80 to $1,200. The actual cost of the Jeuveau® injection will vary by procedure, location, board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon, and individual candidate needs.
