What is Jeuveau? What is Botox?

Jeuveau and Botox are both injectable treatments used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They belong to a class of medications called neuromodulators, which work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles.Jeuveau is a newer product on the market that was FDA-approved in 2019 and dubbed “Newtox” by some due to its similarity to Botox. However, Jeuveau claims to work faster than its predecessor with results appearing as early as 2-3 days after injection. It is also said to last longer than Botox with effects lasting up to 5 months.On the other hand, Botox has been around for decades and is one of the most well-known cosmetic treatments available. It boasts a proven track record of success with millions of satisfied customers worldwide. Botox typically takes about 5-7 days for results to appear and lasts anywhere from 3-4 months depending on individual factors such as metabolism.Both Jeuveau and Botox are administered through injections and require a licensed medical professional to perform the treatment.

What is the difference between Jeuveau and Botox?

Jeuveau and Botox are both popular injectable treatments used to reduce the appearance of different types of wrinkles and fine lines. However, there are some notable differences between the two that patients should consider before choosing one over the other.
Chemical composition
While both Jeuveau and Botox are made from botulinum toxin type A, the manufacturing processes and purification techniques used to create the products are slightly different. As a result, the proteins in Jeuveau are smaller and more uniform than those in Botox, which may result in a slightly quicker onset of action for Jeuveau.
Treatment areas
Jeuveau and Botox are both approved by the FDA for treating frown lines between the eyebrows, but they can also be used off-label to address other areas of the face. Botox is approved for use in the forehead, crow’s feet, and other areas, while Jeuveau is currently only approved for use in the glabellar area to target forehead lines.
Duration of results
Both Jeuveau and Botox typically provide temporary results, with effects lasting between three to six months. However, some patients may experience longer-lasting results with Jeuveau.
Possible side effects
Both Jeuveau and Botox can cause manageable side effects such as pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site. However, Jeuveau has been reported to have a lower incidence of eyelid drooping (known as ptosis) than Botox. Additionally, Jeuveau may be associated with a lower risk of developing antibody resistance to the medication, which can impact the effectiveness of future treatments.

How Does Jeuveau and Botox Work?

Jeuveau and Botox are both injectables that work to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the face. They do this by reducing muscle activity in targeted areas, which in turn relaxes the skin above it. The active ingredient in Jeuveau is botulinum toxin type A, which works similarly to Botox’s active ingredient.

What is your age requirement?

All clients must be 18 years of age or older to receive any of the treatments that we currently offer.

Are the results of non-surgical cosmetic treatments permanent?

The results of the cosmetic treatments offered by Transitions MedSpa can last anywhere from three months to one year, depending on the type of treatment you receive.

Which Is Better for Smooth Skin?

When it comes to achieving smooth skin and rejuvenation, both Jeuveau and Botox are effective treatments for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. Studies have shown that both botulinum toxin injections can provide similar levels of improvement in the treatment of frown lines.

Cost is another factor to consider when comparing Jeuveau and Botox. The cost of treatment may vary depending on the area being treated and the amount of product needed, but Jeuveau may be slightly less expensive than Botox in some cases.

Ultimately, the choice between Jeuveau and Botox will depend on the individual’s specific needs and goals. It is recommended that patients schedule a consultation with one of our licensed medical professionals to determine which botulinum injectable is the best option for their unique skin concerns. The injector’s experience and skill level, as well as the patient’s medical history and aesthetic goals, should all be taken into account when deciding on the most appropriate treatment.

How often should I treat with injectables?

Neuromodulators like botox and jeuveau should be used every 3-4 months for the best results. Fillers can last anywhere from 6-12 months, so a good rule of thumb is to return for assessment about every 6 months or so.
