Our practice has added Jeuveau® as a choice for reducing or eliminating facial wrinkles. Jeuveau® is neurotoxin made from a different form of botulinum, which is the neurotoxin found in BOTOX®. Clinical trials have shown that both Jeuveau® and BOTOX® have a similar safety profile. Both are equally effective in the treatment of wrinkles.
Jeuveau® has a high rating among patients who have experienced treatment. In a 2019 survey of patients who received injections of Jeuveau®, 95% somewhat to strongly agreed results appeared “natural looking.”
Juveau® can be used to treat small wrinkles that commonly appear between the eyebrows that won’t go away. These “frown lines” are called glabellar lines, and they are a common early sign of aging skin. A treatment with Jeuveau® temporarily improves the smoothness of those frown lines in adults. Results can be seen in both moderate and severe cases of frown lines.
As a neurotoxin, Jeuveau® temporarily affects nerves that cause facial muscles to flex. When properly injected, this affect temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, restoring a smooth, youthful appearance.
Clinical trials show Jeuveau® temporarily improve sthe appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. In U.S. studies, 68% and 70% of Jeuveau® patients had a 2-grade or better physician and patient-rated improvement in frown lines at Day 30. In European and Canadian studies, 54% of patients had visible results as early as 2 days after treatment.* And at 5 months after treatment, 38% of patients had visible results with Jeuveau® **
* 54% of patients had a >1-grade improvement in frown lines at Day 2 based on physician assessment compared to 12% for placebo (secondary endpoint). In US studies, 46% and 56% had a >1-grade improvement in frown lines at Day 2 based on physician-assessment compared to 8% and 17% for placebo (exploratory endpoint). Results based on a 1-grade improvement may not be considered clinically meaningful.
** 38% of patients had a >1-grade improvement in frown lines at 5 months based on physician assessment compared to 8% for placebo (secondary endpoint). In US studies, almost 5% of patients had a >2-grade improvement in frown lines at 5 months based on both patient and physician assessments compared to 0% for placebo (secondary endpoint). Results based on a 1-grade improvement may not be considered clinically meaningful. (from the Jeuveau® web site)
