How Jeuveau™ Works
Jeuveau™ treats horizontal forehead lines, brow furrows, and crow’s feet much the same way BOTOX® has for years. The muscles in the forehead are responsible for our facial expressions when we frown, furrow or raise our brows, or squint. Jeuveau™ blocks the nerves responsible for the movement of these muscles, giving our skin a chance to relax and smooth out so lines and wrinkles don’t deepen over time. Jeuveau™ shares the same treatment protocol as BOTOX® in injection depth and distribution, as well as the same safety and effectiveness profile. Jeuveau™ is truly the first genuine competitor BOTOX® has seen since it emerged.
Jeuveau™ has one big advantage over BOTOX®: cost. Evolvus, Jeuveau™’s manufacturer, perfected Hi-Pure Technology, which allows Jeuveau™ to be freeze dried. This eliminates the need for refrigerated shipping and vastly reduces the cost to distribute Jeuveau™. Jeuveau™ also has more flexible pricing due to not being restricted by government reimbursement for Medicare or Medicaid and similar programs. This is because Jeuveau™ is only approved for cosmetic enhancement, unlike BOTOX®, which is also used to treat migraines and other conditions. With the promise of up to 25% savings compared to BOTOX®, Jeuveau™ gives patients the greatest value per treatment.
