Jeuveau is most commonly known as Newtox. This anti-aging injectable treatment can treat fine lines and wrinkles. It is FDA-approved to treat and smooth out moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines. Jeuveau can also be used to treat lines on the nose, chin wrinkles, crow's feet around the eyes, a gummy smile, lip lines, and even neck folds.

Jeuveau works similarly to Botox. It is a neuromodulator that temporarily blocks communication between the nerves and muscles. Once injected into the area, muscle contraction reduces, limiting the formation of lines. The injectable can also smooth out existing wrinkles on the face.

Jeuveau also works well as a preventative treatment for younger patients who wish to avoid the appearance of fine lines. It contains a higher potency, purified form of botulinum toxin A. This potency ensures a more significant effect and quicker, longer-lasting results. Due to its purity, Jeuveau has less chance of an antibody response.

Before the treatment begins, a licensed doctor will ask the patient to make several facial expressions to determine what areas need treatment. Practitioners then cleanse the face to prepare for the treatment. To treat glabellar lines specifically, Jeuveau will be injected over each eyebrow and in between the brows. There is minimal pain involved. Patients can request a topical numbing cream if needed. With Jeuveau treatment, there is no downtime.

Patients might experience mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection sites. These should fade soon after the treatment. Doctors recommend that patients not lie on their backs after a treatment to minimize the possibility of product migration. They also should refrain from strenuous activity and alcohol consumption for up to 24 hours after the treatment.

Due to its level of potency, results are noticeable after two days. This treatment provides only temporary effects. Patients must have touch-up sessions throughout the year to maintain their results because Jeuveau only lasts about 3-6 months.
