Jeuveau is structurally similar to Botox and is designed to treat the same aesthetic concerns.
Made of purified botulinum toxin A, Jeuveau works by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles to reduce or prevent wrinkling.
The most exciting possibility that Jeuveau brings is its reported potential for longer-lasting results than other neurotoxins.
Please continue reading to learn more about this treatment, including its history, benefits, side effects, and how you can get started with Jeuveau.
Jeuveau shares its roots with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin due to sharing the same toxin, botulinum type A. Besides being the first neurotoxin on the market in a decade, it is also the first to be introduced as strictly for aesthetic purposes. Jeuveau received FDA approval in February of 2019.
Jeuveau is developed by a company called Evolus, dedicated to “delivering beauty products with a customer-centric approach.”
Like the other established neurotoxins, Jeuveau’s main benefit is its ability to stop the natural contraction of the facial muscles that cause wrinkles.
In clinical trials, it has been noted to help prevent new wrinkles from forming and smooth out the existing ones in your forehead and between and around your eyes.
Its main competitive advantage is cost, as it’s been reported to be cheaper than the leading option.
I’d been an avid user of Botox for years, until one day my provider suggested I try Jeuveau at a special promotional rate, and so I did. Now I won’t go back to Botox unless they run out of Jeuveau!

The cost of this treatment is similar to its older counterparts, but is reportedly going to be a bit cheaper than Botox. It is estimated to be around a cost reduction of 25%. This means that each vial will be between $350-$400 a vial. Exact cost guidelines have yet to be established. The number of treatment areas, chosen provider, and your desired results will all influence the final cost.
Just like the other neurotoxins, only one treatment is needed. However, ongoing maintenance treatments are needed to maintain results. Keep in mind that your individual response may necessitate an adjustment to your treatment plan.
There is very little if any downtime with this treatment option. The main issue with Jeuveau is the possibility of side effects, which may cause some patients to adjust their activities for a couple of days. It is recommended to avoid exercise or rubbing at the injection site to minimize any negative effects.
In general, it is expected that patients will see improvement as quickly as 2-3 days. However, the full results are not seen until about a week after treatment. Your individual response will determine if your results occur quicker or slower. Consult with your practitioner if you are concerned the results are not happening soon enough.
Based on trials, it is expected that patients will see results for a minimum of 3 months but up to as many as 6-7 months. The key to maintaining results is an ongoing maintenance routine. Similar to the other similar treatments, over time your muscles may become conditioned to be relaxed making the results last longer.
There are three other similar options. They all offer similar results and benefits. These other three options are Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Jeuveau is largely unproven, but was made specifically for cosmetic use and hitting the market as a cheaper option overall.
With all neurotoxins, the differences are subtle so which one you choose will depend greatly on your response to treatment and individual appearance goals.
