Botox is the most popular neurotoxin which is used to fill the wrinkles. But now there is a new treatment for adults that was recently approved by the FDA and it is called Jeuveau. In this text, we are going to introduce you to this new anti-wrinkle treatment.
Just like Botox, Jeuveau is a neurotoxin that can be injected at the corners of the eyes or in between eyebrows with the main goal of stopping natural contraction of muscles that causes wrinkles. Not only does it prevent new wrinkles from forming but it also smooths out the existing ones.
Jeaveau is a 900 kDa purified botulinum toxin formula type A that can temporarily correct moderate to severe wrinkles in adults. As mentioned above, this form of botulinum toxin is injected into the 5 muscles locations that are most affected by facial movements. It stops the communication between nerves and muscles thus improving the quality of the skin. This drug is manufactured in first-rate facilities according to the precise quality standards.
Experts from beautyfixmedspa.com suggest that Jeuveau is a non-invasive and safe treatment. The whole treatment takes about 15 minutes and there is no need for rest afterward. When it comes to uneasiness, it is minimal since the small about of the toxin is being injected. The only thing that is required from patients is to hold their head in the upright position for 2 to 3 hours upon the treatment. After that, they can freely go back to their everyday life.
Side effects of this treatment are minimal since the treatment involves a small number of products. However, some minor side effects can occur such as swelling, bruising and redness around the site of injection but they will subside on their own. More severe reactions such as weakened muscles, droopy eyelids, and an allergic reaction are extremely rare.
Furthermore, the optimal time for visible results is 7 to 10 after the procedure, although some patients were able to notice the results after only 2 or 3 days. When it comes to the number and frequency of the treatments, patients need one treatment every three months.
Are there any differences between Jeuveau and Botox? Well, basically, no, these two treatments are similar since they are extracted from the same type of bacteria and they offer similar results. However, Jeuveau is created and produced with Evolus’s propriety Hi-Pure technology and it was also the first anti-wrinkle treatment that was approved by the FDA in the United States.
The greatest advantage of Jeuveau is its price. The price of this treatment is around 25% lower than the price of Botox treatment. Because of its price and efficiency, Jeuveau is expected to build a strong base of patients in a short period of time.
When it comes to choosing between Botox and Jeuveau treatment, it all comes down to the patient’s personal preference. If someone has already been treated with Botox, they can switch to Jeuveau treatment without any worry since there have not been any side effects concerning the interaction of these two treatments.
