Approved for anti-aging by the FDA in 2019, Jeuveau® is a treatment that, like BOTOX, blocks the neuromuscular function of the tiny muscles responsible for wrinkle-forming facial contractions. By temporarily inhibiting the release of the organic chemical acetylcholine, Jeuveau can help achieve smoother skin, a more youthful appearance, and increased self-confidence.
A leading new BOTOX® alternative that promotes youthfulness without downtime
Just like BOTOX and Dysport, Jeuveau uses botulinum toxin Type A — but has some unique advantages over its predecessors. Its manufacture is more streamlined and it is only used for cosmetic reasons. This makes Jeuveau more cost-effective. Just like BOTOX and Dysport, Jeuveau can help provide relief from the dynamic creases that form as a result of laughing, smiling, frowning, and squinting. Results begin to reveal themselves after 3 to 5 days, and changes will last from 3 to 5 months. In the hands of our skilled, capable injectors, Jeuveau won’t leave your face looking frozen or stiff. Your natural-looking results will be carefully personalized to your unique facial contours, aesthetic sensibilities, and expressed wishes.

What to Expect During the Procedure
Jeuveau is administered at our immaculate, state-of-the-art South Florida practice by a trained and credentialed practitioner. Although injections are not typically considered painful, a topical anesthetic is available for anyone who requests it. Once the patient is comfortable, Jeuveau is injected into the target points that correspond to your predetermined treatment plan. The entire process takes fewer than 20 minutes, and patients can return to work or school right away.
Jeuveau is non-surgical and non-invasive, so you will be able to resume most of your normal activities immediately after your session. However, you will need to avoid touching, rubbing, scratching, or disturbing the treated areas, as this can lead to infection or cause the product to migrate. You should remain in an upright position for 4 to 6 hours after your injections and avoid exercise for 24 hours in order to give your treatment time to settle properly. Side effects after Jeuveau are minimal, but may entail some minor swelling, bruising, and redness that lasts up to one week.
Most patients start enjoying the positive effects of their treatment within 3 to 5 days, with full results visible at 7 to 10 days post-procedure. Jeuveau lasts from 3 to 6 months, and the treatment can be repeated as needed. If you don’t continue your Jeuveau injections, the skin will simply return to how it looked before treatment.
Jeuveau is an excellent choice for patients who want to address forehead furrows, crow’s feet, sagging brows, and lines around the nose and mouth without resorting to invasive plastic surgery. During your private consultation, we will examine your skin and create a treatment plan tailored to your goals. We’ll discuss your medical history, your prior anti-aging procedures, and make sure Jeuveau is going to leave you feeling satisfied and revitalized.
What is Jeuveau made of?
Jeuveau is made with a purified version of botulinum toxin Type A, just like BOTOX and Dysport. However, Jeuveau is different in that it undergoes a unique technological process called Hi-Pure™ which ensures it meets the highest standards for safety and effectiveness.
What are the possible side effects of Jeuveau?
As long as an experienced, vetted practitioner with the proper credentials is performing your injections, there is little risk of complications. The most common issues after treatment are redness or swelling that usually dissipates by the end of the day. It’s important that you disclose any health issues to your practitioner before undergoing treatment, however, as this is the only surefire way to optimize the safety of the procedure.
How long will my Jeuveau results last?
Like BOTOX and Dysport, results with Jeuveau last about 3 to 6 months. We can schedule you for a follow-up appointment in advance to make sure there’s no lapse in your results.
What is the best age to undergo Jeuveau injections?
Patients must be at least 18 to receive Jeuveau. On the upper end of the scale, there is no age restriction as long as the patient is emotionally and physically healthy.
