Jeuveau™ is a neuromodulator that works to block the signals between muscles and nerves, allowing facial muscles to relax and overlying skin to smooth. The main ingredient in Jeuveau is botulinum toxin A, the same primary ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin, earning it the nickname Newtox, but Jeuveau undergoes a more rigorous purification process – known as “Hi-Pure” technology – which helps preserve more of the active ingredient, enabling Jeuveau to deliver a higher potency injection.
If you are considering nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, Newtox treatment with Jeuveau may be exactly what you have been waiting for. Call Genesis Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa at 405-340-9949 or 405-310-6767 to schedule your initial consultation at our Edmond or Norman office. We welcome patients living throughout the Oklahoma City area.
Where can Newtox be Injected?
Similar to Dysport, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and Xeomin, Jeuveau is labeled for use on frown lines, those furrows between the eyebrows that can make a person look both more aged and unpleasant. Newtox can also be used to smooth fine lines and deep wrinkles throughout the face and neck including:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Pebbly chin
- Neck bands
The best way to learn where Newtox may prove useful for your goals is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Panchal. During this meeting, Dr. Panchal will carefully evaluate your areas of concern, discuss the benefits and limitations of various nonsurgical options, and help you choose the most effective technique for your needs.
Is Jeuveau Safe?
Jeuveau is an FDA approved neuromodulator with the same active ingredient as several that have been on the market for decades. The cosmetic benefits of botulinum toxin A are well documented and efficacy and safety of the ingredient have been extensively researched.
There is no downtime following Newtox injections. The most common side effects are minor swelling and discomfort, both of which tend to subside within just a few short days. While extremely rare, botulinum toxin A injections may produce an allergic reaction in some patients and can cause difficulties breathing, trouble swallowing, and slurred speech. These symptoms should be brought to the attention of Dr. Panchal in the rare case they occur.
How Long Does Newtox Last?
It typically takes four to seven days for results from Jeuveau to become apparent. The smoothing effects of the product should last for three to four months. As with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can maintain results by coming back to our office at regularly scheduled intervals, typically two or three times a year, for repeat injections. This is not required, however. As with Xeomin, Dysport, and other neuromodulators, Newtox will not cause you to age more rapidly nor will it enhance wrinkles after it has worn off. If you choose against additional injections, your skin will simply return to its untreated state.
While Jeuveau is a new product, similar products have been on the market for decades. During this time, there has been no evidence that continued use of a neuromodulator will produce future problems. In fact, studies conducted by federal and international government agencies, the companies that manufacture these products, and third-party health, safety, and medical groups have found botulinum toxin A injections to be safe and effective for both short and long-term use.
