WHAT IS JEUVEAU™?
Jeuveau™ (a.k.a. Newtox) is the newest FDA approved neurotoxin, similar to Botox® Cosmetic, that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. Jeuveau™ rhymes with hello and comes from the French word “nouveau,” which means “new” or “modern.” Because Jeuveau™ uses the newest technology and methods of formulation that were not available when Botox® Cosmetic entered the scene, it is in high demand for patients of all ages.
IS JEUVEAU™ SIMILAR TO BOTOX COSMETIC?
Both Jeuveau™ and Botox® Cosmetic are created from a refined form of Botulinum toxin A. Botox® Cosmetic has been the gold standard in treating facial lines and wrinkles for years. While both Botox® Cosmetic and Jeuveau™ are created from the same basic neurotoxin, Jeuveau™ has the benefit of being created using a proprietary purification process approved by the FDA and is used solely for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles. Patients find that Jeuveau™ is typically less expensive and delivers quicker results than Botox® Cosmetic. Studies have indicated that Jeuveau™ may also have a longer lifeline than other neurotoxins.
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
Jeuveau™ is administered in the comfort of our Tampa, FL office who works jointly with double top cosmetic surgeon facial plastic surgeon, George Solomon, M.D.. During the procedure, injections are carefully administered into the area between the eyebrows, on the forehead, or around the eyes depending on each patient’s individual need. The purified botulinum protein A begins working to prevent interactions between the nerve signals and facial muscles.
AFTERCARE AND RECOVERY
The treatment process is often quick with no downtime! There is minimal discomfort associated with treatment, but some patients may experience minor pinching at the injection site with slight bruising or swelling afterward. The individual results achieved with Jeuveau™ will vary for each patient and their unique frown lines. Although results are not permanent, a series of treatments can help maintain ideal results.
