Jeuveau is a prescription medication that’s used to treat lines and wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows. These are known as glabellar lines or, more commonly, as frown lines. Jeuveau is injected into the muscles surrounding these lines, causing them to relax.

Who can have Jeuveau Treatment?

Jeuveau is used to treat mild, moderate, and severe frown lines between the eyebrows and is licensed for adults aged 18 and over. It’s suitable for most people but shouldn’t be used if you’ve had a previous allergic reaction to any of its ingredients or any other botulinum toxin product (such as Botox or Dysport).  

Other cautions include some cardiac conditions, bleeding disorders, conditions affecting the nervous system, if you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking certain prescription medications. If any of these apply to you, be sure to communicate this to your practitioner during your initial consultation. Should your situation change at any point in the future, you should also inform them before the next treatment is carried out.

Jeuveau works similarly to Botox or Dysport.

What are the Advantages of Jeuveau Compared to Botox or Dysport?

However, it has a unique formula, meaning that some people will experience better results with Jeuveau, and vice versa. What Jeuveau does bring is a further element to a practitioner’s repertoire, allowing them to select the best product to create a bespoke treatment plan.
Jeuveau is currently only FDA-approved for the treatment of glabellar lines, unlike Botox, which is approved for other areas of the body and issues including excessive sweating. However, like other injectables, an experienced practitioner can decide to use Jeuveau off-label to treat other wrinkles on the face or body, if he or she deems this is appropriate. However, it’s important to know that as Jeuveau is relatively new to the market (it was given FDA approval in February 2019), that there is limited data regarding its use anywhere other than on glabellar lines. One advantage Jeuveau has over other injectables is the price. It costs less and might, therefore, be more appealing to those who’re new to botulinum toxin injections.
