Jeuveau® is a variety of purified botulinum toxin type A formulations. It is administered intramuscularly to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as the glabellar lines, in adults. With the use of Jeuveau®, which is similar to other neuromodulators such as Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®, patients can address dynamic wrinkles and folds that develop on the face, restoring a more youthful appearance with smoother skin. At Amara Med Spa, we are excited to offer Jeuveau®, along with many other cosmetic injectables.
What are the possible side effects of Jeuveau® injections?
The most common side effects of Jeuveau® injections include:
- Redness, swelling, pain, and bruising at the injection site
- Dry mouth or drooling
These are typically mild and will resolve on their own within a few days. More serious side effects are not nearly as common but may include:
- Allergic reactions (hives, rashes, persistent itching, difficulty breathing)
- Muscle weakness
- Vision problems or changes in vision
- Hoarseness or trouble speaking
If you experience any of these potential side effects, contact your doctor immediately. Jeuveau® should only be administered by a licensed medical professional.
What is the difference between Jeuveau® and other neuromodulators?
Jeuveau® is a newer neuromodulator on the market, approved by the FDA in February 2019. It contains botulinum toxin type A, which is also found in other popular neuromodulators such as Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®. All of these products are considered to be safe and effective for the temporary treatment of dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face. The main difference between Jeuveau® and other neuromodulators is that it is produced using a different manufacturing process that allows for a more purified product with fewer impurities than other similar injectables.
