Jeuveau® — is it really the new Botox? #NEWTOX
As an aesthetics fanatic, I was ecstatic when I saw there was a product similar to botox. Of course I had to do my research before trying it to see if it was right for me.
What is Jeuveau:
Jeuveau is meant to be a play on the French word “nouveau” which means “recent” or “modern” and patients will evolve with the product as they move forward in their journey towards youth. Jeuveau is a 900 kDa purified botulinum toxin formula type A, which can temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in adults. In addition, the production of it follows the strictest quality standards in top-notch facilities. Its safety has been evaluated through a clinical study with over 2,000 patients.
The FDA approved Jeuveau because the drug has passed two clinical trials in the U.S with double-blind placebo studies. Both trials displayed efficacy and met their primary goals by reducing the glabellar lines over a 30-day period. In those clinical trials, Jeuveau had a 65.7% success rate in the first trial and 70.4% success rate with patients in the second trial.
To sum up all the fancy scientific facts, Jeuveau is a lot like Botox. The only difference is the place its manufactured and the price point is 25% lower than Botox per unit, but of course that’s always going to change according to the different provinces and market demand.
My experience with Jeuveau:
Needless to say I wanted to try Jeuveau. Here’s my experience thus far. I went into Neu Look Med Spa, where I had met Gita Izadi, my NP and injector. She is an artist with the needle and is a kind and sweet soul. She made me feel extremely comfortable and listened to everything I had said, including my worry about the new injectable. After we spoke, I was ready to go. I received 51 units of Jeuveau injected into my glabella and forehead. The glabella area is often referred to as the 11 lines, which are in between the eyebrows.
First day after injection after Jeuveau you couldn’t tell I had anything done which is completely normal, like Botox, Jeuveau also takes 7-10 days to take effect. Three days after I was injected with Jeuveau, I did notice a slight difference. My brows where slightly raised! I was so shocked because usually with Botox it doesn’t take effect until 10 days after the injection. Within 5 days Jeuveau had taken full effect. I was in disbelief and I was also sold on a faster acting botulin injection.
Now we are in close to mid- October and I am still loving Jeaveau. I have little to no movement, which I prefer but you can tell Gita what your preference is. Plus, like she told me, results are different per patient. But from my experience I would recommend it. Ultimately, if you want something fast acting and a little more cost efficient than Botox, Jeaveau is for you.
