‘Botox’ has been a catch all term for cosmetic botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) injections since 2002 when it was first approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the cosmetic treatment of glabellar lines. In reality, Botox® (onabotulinumtoxina) specifically refers to the formulation created by Allergan, which is estimated to encompass about 80 percent of the BoNT-A injection market. Competitors include Dysport®, Jeaveau®, and Xeomin®.
The latest entrant to the BoNT-A market, Jeuveau® (prabotulinumtoxinA) by Evolus, was FDA approved for cosmetic indications in 2019 following the completion of clinical trials. It is targeted to millennials and touts a price 20 to 30 percent less than Botox®.

What affects the cost of Jeuveau®?
The cost of a Jeuveau® treatment is influenced by a myriad of factors. The actual cost of the Jeuveau® units, the time of the injector, the body area being treated, the desired results, your geographic location, and the supplies used during the injection all affect cost.
It is also important to remember that Jeuveau® offers temporary results that can only be maintained with consistent sessions. For example, if your crow’s feet procedure costs $275 and maintenance is needed every four months, your cost per year to maintain results will be $825.
Many providers and facilities have discounts, special offers, and/or rewards programs for regular Jeuveau® patients to reduce the financial impact of upkeep. Looking into the programs and incentives in your area can help to lower costs.

Does insurance cover the cost of Jeuveau®?
Insurance coverage is confusing. When it comes to the combination of health insurance and plastic surgery, things are even more confusing. We’re here to help. It’s generally understood cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance. This is most often true, although certain cosmetic procedures that provide medical benefits for documented conditions could possibly be covered. Definitions from the American Medical Association (AMA) can help to further clarify:
- Cosmetic Surgery: Reshapes normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem.
- Reconstructive Surgery: Alterations to abnormal body structures caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease.
Jeuveau® is not a surgery, and it does not have FDA approval for any medical conditions. It is only approved for cosmetic use (although it has some off-label uses), so we’ll keep it simple: Jeuveau® will not be covered by your insurance provider.
Jeuveau® by Evolus is an FDA-approved injectable botulinum toxin used to treat age-related facial wrinkles. As with any neurotoxin, it’s popular with dermatologists and patients alike due to its effectiveness, minimal side effects, and little to no downtime.
