Jeuveau – A New Botox Alternative


Botox has been almost unrivaled since 2002, but there is a new type of FDA-approved injectable aesthetic treatment for the temporary improvement in the appearance of mild to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabella) in adult patients called Jeaveau, or #NewTox. Dr. Matthew Elias and Dr. Merrick Elias are both experts at treating unwanted wrinkles and preventing aging using Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and now, Jeaveau. While Jeaveau is a new competitor to Botox, both treat and prevent unwanted wrinkles in the same way.

What is Jeuveau?

Like Botox, Jeuveau is an FDA-approved prescription medicine used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A, the same “active ingredient” in Botox, Dysport and Xeomin.

The safety and effectiveness of Jeuveau has been evaluated in clinical studies with more than 2,100 patients, including the largest aesthetic head-to-head pivotal trial comparing Jeuveau and Botox, which was published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal. In this study, the primary endpoint of non-inferiority was achieved with responder rates* of 87.2% for Jeuveau™, 82.8% for BOTOX® and 4.2% for Placebo at Day 30.

What makes Jeuveau different from Botox?

There is almost no difference between Jeuveau and Botox as they are both made using the same form of botulinum toxin A. Both Jeuveau and Botox have very similar safety profiles, effects and longevity.

In clinical studies, Jeuveau was found to soften the appearance of frown lines in the same exact way as Botox. They both are derived from the same bacteria and work almost exactly the same to improve the appearance of lines and creases on the face. Jeuveau delivers similar results as Botox, as seen in the before and after photos below:

How long does Jeuveau last?

Like Botox, Jeuveau lasts approximately 3 months. However, some patients may experience shorter or longer effects depending on several factors like muscle mass and metabolism.

Who is a candidate for Jeuveau?

Anyone who is a candidate for Botox, Dysport or Xeomin is likely a candidate for Jeuveau. Jeuveau is an excellent treatment option for patients who are looking to for a newer, alternative .

Is Jeuveau available at Elias Dermatology?

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. Both Dr. Matthew Elias and Dr. Merrick Elias have added Jeuveau as an alternative to Botox, Dysport and Xeomin at both locations in Fort Lauderdale and Pembroke Pines.
