For many years Botox has been the recognized brand of wrinkle relaxing injectables. Even with newer competitors like Xeomin and Dysport appearing on the market Botox continues to be the gold standard. Botox is safe, it’s effective and it’s a proven treatment for many medical disorders as well as for cosmetic purposes. Perhaps until now? Enter Jeuveau.
Jeuveau, also known as #Newtox is another purified form of botulinum toxin that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle that cause frown lines and help reduce the appearance of movement lines in the forehead and around the eyes. Jeuveau is another good, non-surgical options that reduces the effects of aging and helps regain and maintain a more youthful appearance.

What is the difference between Jeuveau and Botox?
Overall Jeuveau and Botox are very similar as each is a type of botulinum type A used to relax the muscles that cause frown lines and other fine lines and wrinkles. Personal preference is the determiner as to which serum is chosen.
How long will a treatment last?
You can expect results from either injectable to last three to four months.
When will I see results?
Patients typically see results within five to seven days.
How much does a treatment cost?
Our Expert Injector Dr. Bounds will listen to your concerns and evaluate your needs. Charges for the treatments are by area. A follow up appointment is scheduled approximately two weeks after your treatment and any additional treatment that is needed will be at no charge.
Tell me more about the actual treatment.
Treatments are injections with a very small needle which may feel like a pinch and are generally well tolerated. There is really no downtime other than a few red marks at the injection site that should disappear in a few hours.
