FAQ's about Jeuveau (#NEWTOX)
What exactly is Jeuveau™?
You know those pesky little wrinkles between your eyebrows that won’t go away? Well, they’re called glabellar lines, or “frown lines.” Jeuveau™ is an injectable treatment that works to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines in adults.
How does Jeuveau™ work?
Jeuveau™ prevents your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex. The result? In clinical trials, Jeuveau™ was shown to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. In 2 long-term safety studies, patients received an average of 3 treatments over the course of 1 year.
What's the difference between Jeuveau™ and Botox?
Think about it like Pepsi vs Coke, or Adidas vs Nike. Like Botox, Jeuveau has a molecular weight of 900 kDa, but they're produced in different facilities and are derived from different strains of the same toxin. (Botox, or onabotulinumtoxinA, is made by Allergan in Westport, Ireland; Jeuveau, or prabotulinumtoxinA, comes out of Seoul, South Korea.) The risks and potential side effects listed by the companies are also identical.
What’s it like before and after treatment?
If it’s your first time getting a treatment, you may be a little nervous. And that’s okay! The Jeuveau experience is just like injections like Botox or Dysport. You can expect a pricking or pinching sensation, and with the possibility of a little bleeding or bruising afterwards.
