The injectable neurotoxin Jeuveau received FDA clearance on 2/1/2019 joining Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin on the wrinkle relaxer shelves. Its self-ascribed nickname #NEWTOX suggests what Jeuveau has to offer which is a new botox alternative that also temporarily smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
So here is the million dollar question: What’s the difference between Botox and Jeuveau?
If you are scratching your head you’re not alone! The two products are very similar, however, there are some nuanced differences between them that make one a better option for certain patients.
To help you understand both options a little better, let’s compare a few important factors.
Jeuveau is slightly cheaper than Botox but again it depends on how many units prescribed, your provider and where you live. Here at The Med Spa at Scottsdale we always have excellent specials on Botox & Jeuveau. (This month we are having Tox Happy Hour on Jeuveau and it will be $10.99/unit plus $160 dollars off first two treatments)
Clinical Trials have shown the absorption for Jeuveau was 2-3 days for onset and the duration was just a little bit longer 3-4 months versus Botox absorption takes up to 2 weeks.
Both Botox and Jeuveau are injectable neurotoxin medications, made from botulinum toxin Type A. There are minor differences in the manufacturing and purification processes for each product. We can’t tell you exactly what these differences are, as they are under lock and key with each manufacturer—but basically the minor differences result in Botox being a little more effective for certain patients, and Jeuveau a little more effective and precise for others.
It’s a very similar situation as with the hyaluronic acid fillers Juvéderm and Restylane—they’re extremely similar, and we use both to treat the same types of concerns, but each has its own fan club.
