Have you heard about the “new-tox” craze in the cosmetic world? Jeuveau™ has taken over as a leading injectable in the cosmetic and plastic surgery fields. At Orlando Plastic Surgery Associates, we now offer Jeuveau™ to our patients. We welcome patients from the Orlando, Lake Mary, and Orange County areas.
What is Jeuveau™?
Jeuveau™ is a new injectable filler that is a purified botulinum toxin. This has the same active ingredient as Botox® and is also similar to Dysport® and Xeomin®. Jeuveau™ is used to treat the appearance of glabellar lines, which are the wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows.
What Makes Jeuveau™ Different from Other Injectables?
Jeuveau™ is different when compared to other injectables because the creation and drying process is different from leaders such as Botox®. During the drying process, Jeuveau™ is vacuum dried and has been shown to not damage the botulinum toxin. It is possible that this process may make Jeuveau™ more effective than other injectables because the active ingredient is not compromised.
Where can Jeuveau™ Be Injected?
Jeuveau™ is intended to be injected between the eyebrows and near the eyes to reduce the appearance of glabellar lines. This injectable has not yet been proven to work on other areas of the face or body, but as time passes and there are more clinical experiences with Jeuveau™, it is likely that it will be more versatile.
