What is Jeuveau?
- Posted on: May 31 2019
If you haven’t already heard about the new neurotoxin, Jeaveau, you likely will at some point under the hashtag #newtox on social media. Jeaveau comes from the french word “nouveau”, which mean “new” or “modern”, and just went on sale for purchase by qualified practitioners around the country this past week.
Jeaveau was FDA approved in February 2019 for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines (lines between your eyebrows). Jeuveau is the first new neurotoxin brand to come to the U.S. market in almost 10 years (with Dysport and Xeomin released prior to 2009). The maker, Evolus, pride themselves on their state-of-the-art manufacturing process with Hi-Pure for the production of Jeuveau.
This new neurotoxin is very similar to current competitors…Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. Botox is currently the popular neurotoxin on the market today and has been for a number of years. While Jeaveau effects are similar to other neurotoxins, it is rumored to be easier on your wallet. It is expected to be priced nearly 20 percent lower than it’s biggest rival…Botox.
Botox has been around for almost 20 years and is highly consistent in delivering effective results for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles when injected by an experienced, qualified provider. Botox was first FDA approved in 2002 for temporary improvement of glabellar lines. Today, Botox is FDA approved to treat forehead lines, glabellar lines and crow’s feet, which are fine lines around the eyes. Botox is often used “off label” to slim the lower face, minimize neckbands, lift the brow and much more. Both Botox providers and patients love the results of Botox so it will be interesting to see how Jeaveau compares.
Will Jeuveau Last Longer?
Unfortunately, Jeuveau is not expected to last any longer than Botox with a similar average of 3 to 5 months. Although, in clinical studies many subjects claimed that they noticed a slightly longer duration of effect so time will tell.
Is Jeuveau Used to Treat Medical Conditions?
Evolus has made it very clear that Jeuveau was developed exclusively for aesthetics only, while Botox has been used for the treatment of a number of medical conditions over the years, including eyelid disorders and overactive bladder conditions.
This is an exciting time for the aesthetics industry with the release of Jeaveau and many more aesthetic treatment options. We recently received our first samples of Jeaveau and look forward to reporting injector experiences soon.
