  • Jeuveau FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Jeuveau is considered the newest neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin type A. It is specifically approved for cosmetic use and has coined the phrase #newtox. In 2019, it became FDA approved, the last injectable to do so in over ten years. Compared to other neuromodulator injectables, Jeuveau has created ‘Hi-Pure’ technology. This helps Jeuveau to work efficiently by interrupting the communication between the nerve ending and its targeted muscle. Patients may see results in as little as 2-3 days. It’s commonly used to reduce forehead and frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines, and other fine lines and wrinkles.
