About the Procedure

Last Updated: 09.18.2021

Jeuveau® by Evolus contains the primary active ingredient prabotulinumtoxinA. Targeted to the millennial population with a slightly lower price point than Botox® by Allergan, Jeuveau® has a similar profile to Botox® — composed primarily of human albumin and sodium chloride (mixing solution). Due to the relative newness of the product (it was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use only in February 2019), there is limited data on Jeuveau®, however, it has shown a similar safety profile and efficacy to Botox®. Botulinum toxin type A (and all of its specially formulated offshoots like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) generally functions by inhibiting cell transmissions between nerve and muscle cells causing a flaccid paralysis. These are temporary results, as the body will naturally degrade the toxin over time.

The goal of Jeuveau® injections are varied, but they are most often used to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

Concerns

Jeuveau® addresses concerns such as:

Recovery Notes

Most candidates encounter few side effects lasting no more than 24 hours. Minimal swelling, pain, and redness resolve almost immediately after the procedure and most individuals resume activities directly following the injections.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate for a Jeuveau® injection is a patient looking for a safe, efficacious, and temporary solution to alleviate and mitigate the development of age related skin changes.

Not Recommended For

Jeuveau® is not recommended for those under 18, women who are pregnant or nursing, anyone with an allergy to the components of Jeuveau®, or those with certain chronic medical conditions.

Side Effects

Common side effects of Jeuveau® injections include skin reactions like redness, dryness, and flaking. Warmth, itchiness, tightness, injection site infection, and/or bruising may also occur. Some candidates experience dizziness, weakness, headache, or vision problems and these side effects usually resolve within two days. More serious, and less common side effects of Jeuveau® include double vision, muscle spasms, severe muscle weakness, hoarseness, and difficulty breathing. These types of reactions typically resolve within three to four months. Severe allergic reactions can occur.
