BOTOX® injections are one of the top non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed each year. While this is the most well-known neurotoxin used for smoothing wrinkles on the face, such as frown lines, there are other brands that claim to offer a natural-looking rejuvenation, as well. One injectable that has gained more attention over the past few years is Jeuveau®. Formulated for cosmetic purposes, Jeuveau® is another FDA-approved neuromodulator that targets moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows. With BOTOX Cosmetic being such a trusted and widely used injectable, some men and women may wonder if Jeuveau is worth all the hype.
At the Dermlounge, our aesthetic professionals offer a variety of cosmetic injectables, from dermal fillers to KYBELLA® to neurotoxins. We strive to stay at the forefront of the latest advancements in minimally invasive aesthetic rejuvenation, which is why we are excited to offer our patients different types of neurotoxins to address our patients’ varying needs. Among the different formulas we use for natural-looking results are BOTOX Cosmetic and Jeuveau.
The two injectables both contain botulinum toxin A and have a similar molecular weight, meaning they are often administered in a similar way. In fact, Jeuveau is the closest injectable to BOTOX Cosmetic compared to others on the market. Both Jeuveau and BOTOX injections last approximately three to four months, have similar side effects, and have comparable costs. The main difference between the two neurotoxins is the purification process through which they are formulated.
While each injectable works in a very similar way, some patients may prefer their results from one over their other. Whether to choose Jueveau or BOTOX Cosmetic ultimately comes down to patient and/or provider preference. If you are happy with your results from BOTOX Cosmetic, you may want to continue with getting BOTOX injections. However, if you want to try an alternative like Jeuveau, our team can help you determine whether it is right for you.
