Dr. Alison Black & Brooke Smart, FNP is an expert in the use of Jeuveau injections to treat unwanted wrinkles including frown lines. Dr. Alison Black & Brooke Smart, FNP is one of the first physicians in the U.S. to provide this new competitor to Botox for patient use.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A, the same “active ingredient” in Botox Cosmetic & Dysport. Similar to Botox, Jeuveau is composed of the same 900 kDa protein but undergoes a different purification and drying process termed Hi-Pure technology.
Is Jeuveau Available in the U.S.?
Yes. Jeuveau was FDA-approved in February 2019 for injection of facial muscles to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Jeuveau is also approved in Canada under a different trade name.
What Makes Jeuveau Different from Botox?
Jeuveau was designed and positioned to be a premium competitor to Botox. In clinical studies, Jeuveau was found to soften the appearance of frown lines as well as Botox. Jeuveau is different from Botox in that it undergoes a different purification process, as well as a different drying process. The vacuum drying process of Jeuveau has been shown to not damage the botulinum toxin protein. Therefore, it is theoretically possible that Jeuveau may have better potency to other wrinkles relaxers, aka neuromodulators.
Where Can Jeuveau Be Injected?
Jeuveau is FDA-approved on label for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Similar to Botox & Dysport. Jeuveau can be injected “off-label” to treat unwanted wrinkles and overactive muscles over many areas of the face and neck. These include forehead lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines of the nose, wrinkles around the mouth, the lip flip, gummy smile, pebbly chin (peau d’orange), and neck bands (platysmal bands).
