Over the past 20 years, Botox has become synonymous with anti-aging injections.
To the extent that many people believe Botox is a treatment in and of itself, rather than a brand-name neurotoxin. This is similar to the notion that Coke and soda are the same thing.
However, Botox’s reign as the top wrinkle-busting treatment may be coming to an end. A new neurotoxin called Jeuveau is poised to become a worthy Botox competitor.
Here’s why many patients and providers may be making the switch from Botox to Jeuveau Newtox!
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that has recently entered the aesthetic market. Like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, Jeuveau is composed of botulinum toxin type A and temporarily paralyzes targeted muscles to relax frown lines and wrinkles.
Jeuveau may also have the potential to be used off-label for a number of medical conditions, including chronic migraines, hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, and muscle spasms.
Is Jeuveau the Same as Botox?
Jeuveau is the first known 900kDa molecule in the U.S. since Botox, which makes it structurally similar to Botox.
Accordingly, Jeuveau will be administered in the same way as Botox in terms of dosing, storage, and injection technique. Both neurotoxins also have the same longevity and can relax wrinkles for three-to-four months.
For these reasons, Jeuveau and Botox may be used interchangeably for women and men who are seeking correction or prevention of moderate to severe facial lines.
Why Consider Jeuveau Newtox over Botox?
One of the key advantages of Jeuveau over Botox is price. With a 20-30 percent price reduction, Jeuveau may be much more appealing than Botox when looking at the sum of units needed.
Additionally, this price reduction could make Jeuveau more accessible to patients, including those who are already receiving antiaging injections and those who are new to neurotoxins.
Best of all, Jeuveau and Botox have been shown to have similar efficacy and safety profiles. This means that Jeuveau can produce the same great results and longevity as Botox, but at a lower cost.
