Jeuveau, or #NEWTOX, is a new injectable that relaxes facial muscles and improves the look of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Jeuveau is a modern treatment that was FDA approved in February 2019. The scientific name, PrabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs, is the same molecular weight as Botox. It has a faster onset (1-2 days) and lasts an additional month longer than Botox. Jeuveau is manufactured by Evolus in Newport Beach. In addition, Jeuveau does not contain preservatives!
Jeuveau is injected with a fine needle, smaller than an insulin needle, and is therefore a comfortable procedure that does not require anesthesia. Side effects are similar to those with Botox, including bruising, headache, lid ptosis and brow ptosis.
There is no real downtime, however we do recommend against lying flat, rubbing the area or applying direct pressure to the area for 4-8 hours post injection.
Dr. O’Connell customizes each treatment to the individual and prices depend on the amount of Jeuveau used.
