As you age, your skin begins to change, and lines and wrinkles start to form around your face. While people used to have to live with these changes, cosmetic products now exist to help treat the appearance of creases and aging. Jeuveau treatment can help smooth the appearance of frown lines and give you a rejuvenated glow.
So what is Jeuveau, and how long does it last? Continue reading to learn more about this product, and contact Aurae MD in La Jolla, CA, to schedule your Jeuveau appointment.
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a cosmetic injectable treatment used to treat lines and wrinkles. While other injectables like Jeuveau exist, this product is specifically used for its outstanding treatment of glabellar lines, or the lines that form between the eyebrows.
This injectable treatment reduces the movement of muscles around the area between the brows, which helps reduce the appearance of lines. While you’ll still have some movement and the ability to form expressions, you won’t have to worry about creasing and wrinkles.
How Does Jeuveau Injection Work?
Wrinkles and creases result from excessive muscle movement in the face. When you make certain faces, like a mad face, you may notice lines that form between the eyebrows. Jeuveau works to eliminate these creases.
Jeuveau’s main ingredient is botulinum toxin A. This toxin significantly slows the movement of muscles.
Muscles move because nerves carry messages to them to make certain movements. When Jeuveau is injected into these muscles, it blocks these messages, which results in the slowing or stopping of movement.
Jeuveau vs. Botox: What’s the Difference?
If you’re familiar with Botox, you’ll likely recognize the active ingredient in Jeuveau to be the same as that in Botox. This makes patients wonder if there is a difference between these two products.
Jeuveau is often referred to as “the new Botox,” or “newtox,” as this product is a newer, or revamped, version of the already existing Botox.
While these products share many similarities, certain characteristics help Jeuveau stand apart. Jeuveau is a better treatment for specific types of wrinkles, primarily those that form between the brows.
The two products have the same active ingredient, but the overall formulas differ. Some people respond better to Jeuveau than Botox.
It all comes down to personal preference. However, because we know these products so well, we can guide you in choosing the best botulinum toxin A product to effectively treat your wrinkles and give you the youthful glow you seek.
What to Expect During a Jeuveau Treatment
Before we begin your Jeuveau wrinkle treatment, we’ll examine the area to determine exactly where we will administer the product. We will then cleanse and prep the area.
Throughout your treatment, we will carefully inject the product in a way that will provide the best results. Because Jeuveau is solely a frown line treatment, the session will be quick, lasting only about 10 to 20 minutes.
After your treatment is complete, you’re free to go and return to your normal daily routine.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re interested in trying Jeuveau, you may have questions about the product. We’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions to give you a better idea of what you could expect after this wrinkle treatment.
Is Jeuveau Injection Safe?
Yes. While the word “toxin” in the primary ingredient makes patients question the safety of the product, there is nothing to worry about.
When botulinum toxin A is administered in small doses and done so by a trained professional, it is safe to use for cosmetic purposes.
What Is the Downtime After a Jeuveau Frown Line Treatment?
After Jeuveau treatment, there is no downtime. We may recommend avoiding exercise and alcohol for at least 24 hours after your appointment and suggest not laying down or rubbing the area for at least four hours post-injection. Aside from this, you can return to your routine after you leave the office.
When Can I Expect to See Results After Jeuveau?
Due to the way botulinum toxin A products work, you likely won’t see results immediately after your treatment. It takes a few days for the product to settle in and begin working to slow muscle movement.
One of the benefits of Jeuveau vs. Botox is that Jeuveau tends to work more quickly. While Botox takes one to two weeks to see results, with Jeuveau, you can begin to see a noticeable difference in only two to three days. Full results take four or five days.
How Long Does Jeuveau Last?
Jeuveau typically lasts five to six months after treatment. This is longer than other neuromodulator products, like Botox, which usually lasts three to four months.
Can Jeuveau Be Coupled with Other Treatments?
Yes. Jeuveau can be combined with other injectable treatments, depending on your needs and aesthetic goals.
How Do I Know Whether Jeuveau Is Right for Me?
We encourage you to schedule an appointment. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your areas of concern and examine the treatment area to determine whether Jeuveau is the right product to give you the desired results.
We can also create a personalized treatment plan to include other injectable treatments to give you the overall improvement you seek.
