What is Jeaveau?
Jeuveau is the newest neurotoxin to hit the market in almost 10 years with FDA-approval in February 2019 for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar line (lines between your eyebrows). According to Evolus, Jeuveau was developed exclusively for aesthetics. Evolus uses a state-of-the art manufacturing process with Hi-Pure for the production of Jeuveau.
Jeuveau (Jū vō) comes from the French word “nouveau,” meaning “new” or “modern” and can be found on multiple social media posts with the hashtag #newtox.
What are the benefits of Jeaveau?
Jeuveau is administered similarly to Botox with minimal time and discomfort. A tiny needle is used by all providers to safely administer Jeaveau with the least amount of discomfort possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
Jeaveau works by weakening the nerve impulses in the facial muscles. This causes the muscles to relax and not create as much contraction that often leads to wrinkles in the skin. The relaxation is temporary and does not effect untreated muscles. Treated muscles will regain full function within approximately 3-6 months.
Jeaveau is FDA approved for the cosmetic use of lines between the brows and often used for forehead lines and crow’s feet as well. Jeaveau is similar to Botox, a neurotoxin that has been on the market for nearly two decades and has proved to be safe and effective for the treatment of lines and wrinkles.
The best candidates for Jeaveau are both men and women concerned with lines between the brows, in the forehead, and/or around the eyes. Jeaveau may be recommended for other areas, including, but not limited to, the masseter muscles and neck bands. Fillers may be recommended in conjunction with Botox for full facial rejuvenation. Learn more about our Non-Surgical Facelift page.
Younger patients may begin Jeaveau treatments in their twenties or early thirties to prevent the formation of wrinkles or for a non-surgical browlift.
If you are unhappy with the Jeaveau treatment results you received, you’ll likely have to wait until the effects wear off, which typically take approximately four months. This is the case for patients who have been over-treated or are experiencing droopiness of one or both eyelids, though an prescription eye drop can help with the latter in some cases. If you are experiencing an asymmetric result, we can likely fix that with a minor adjustment.
It’s important to remember that Jeaveau isn’t simply injected under a wrinkle, like a dermal filler, which can easily be reversed with a specific enzyme. For a good Jeaveau result, the injector must be well trained with extensive knowledge in facial anatomy. At Utah Facial Plastics, we specialize in the face with the top facial plastic surgeons and injectors in the state of Utah.
Jeaveau is most commonly used between the eyebrows for “frown lines” and also used in the forehead and around the eyes. Jeaveau can be used in other areas but it’s best to consult with your provider about your specific concerns to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Jeaveau is treated with a recommended amount of “units” per area, similar to Botox. Different areas require different amounts to adequately relax the muscle. While we can give you an idea of how much your Jeaveau session will cost based on some averages (for instance, crow’s feet usually need from 5-15 units), every patient is unique. Factors such as gender, size, and the strength of your facial muscles, even your metabolism, all affect how much Jeaveau may be recommended. The following image and corresponding amounts can be used as a basic guideline.
Jeaveau treatments are quick at approximately 15 minutes. There is no downtime but patients may experience slight redness and swelling at the injections site(s). Patients should not rub the injection site(s) for at least 24 hours after treatment to ensure product doesn’t migrate to other areas.
Muscle relaxation typically takes effect within 3-10 days following treatment. Moderate to severe lines or wrinkles will soften over time with repeated Jeaveau use. Individual results may vary.
The length of result time is estimated to be the same as Botox, approximately 3-6 months. With continued use, treatments can often be spaced further apart as the muscle weakens over time.
A small needle is used for Jeaveau injections but there is some minor discomfort, though minimal and brief. We do provide ice packs with all injections to help with any discomfort and the possibility of bruising.
While the positive results are visible, Jeaveau will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look “over done”. Muscle use is still possible, just temporarily reduced. Cases of faces looking “frozen” are due to misuse or overuse of Jeaveau by the treating injector.
You should not use Jeaveau if you:
- are allergic to any of the ingredients in Jeaveau.
- had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Botox® or Dysport®.
- have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
- are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if Jeaveau can harm your unborn baby.
- are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if Jeaveau passes into breast milk.
The frown lines between your brows will gradually return to the way they looked before treatment after approximately 4-6 months. With continued use over an extended period of time, the muscles will weaken allowing you to extend the time period between treatments. The weakness is not permanent but easier to sustain for longer periods of time.
Yes and it’s best to consistently see a qualified provider who knows what is best for you and can provide the same great result for you time and time again. When jumping around to different providers, you may get different recommendations and treatment results so it’s best to find what works for you and stick with that treatment plan.
Jeaveau treatments require extensive training and knowledge and can come with serious consequences, such as blindness. Be sure to see a qualified injector for treatment.
At Utah Facial Plastics, we charge by the unit, versus the area, so you know exactly what you are getting. The cost is the same as Botox at $12 per unit. We do offer ways to save with new specials updated monthly. You can view our current specials HERE.
In addition, many of our patients also sign up for our Beauty Bank program where a certain amount of money is automatically withdrawn each month so your Jeaveau procedure is paid for by the time you come in for treatment.
During your consultation with an expert injector at Utah Facial Plastics, we will discuss your concerns, goals, and desires. Your provider will then examine the structures of your face, assess the quality of your skin tone and bone structure, and will make recommendations they feel will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. They will also discuss any possible risks and complications that could follow your procedure, if applicable. Information on skincare and other procedures that may enhance your overall result will be discussed as well. Financial information will be provided and treatment can be done at the same time if you decide to move forward.
Jeaveau works by softening “dynamic” wrinkles that primarily form on the upper third of the face, the area of the face where we make expressions such as frowning or showing surprise. Dermal fillers work completely different by adding volume to lines, wrinkles or areas to augment, such as the lips.
