Is Jeuveau the same as Botox?
Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) and Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) are both neurotoxins created from bacteria. Jeuveau is trademarked through Evolus and Botox is trademarked by Allergan. Both medicines work by blocking communication between a nerve and its target muscle.
Should I choose Jeuveau over Botox, Dysport or Xeomin?
Dysport, Botox and Xeomin are much more similar to Jeuveau than they are different. Dr. Kolstad can use each of these neuromodulators to soften lines and wrinkles creating a very natural result. Jeuveau is very new to the market and it’s not possible to say if #Newtox has any significant advantages to Botox or other neurotoxins.
Can I have #Newtox if I’ve had Botox injections?
You can absolutely use Jeuveau if you’ve had Botox. Dr. Kolstad recommends waiting for the Botox to wear off before switching to Jeuveau. The number of units of Botox translates to the same number of units you should expect to need with Jeuveau.
When will I see results?
Many of Dr. Kolstad’s patients have reported seeing results in 24 hours after treatment. Full onsent of Jeuveau will take up to 10 days. Most patients can expect results to last up to three months.
What is the downtime with Jeuveau?
Any injectable treatment can result in bruising and swelling. The downtime also depends on the areas being treated. It is uncommon to see significant bruising or downtime when Jeuveau is used to treated glabellar and forehead lines. There is more risk of bruising when treating crow’s feet around the eyes. Most of Dr. Kolstad’s do not need to take days off of work to recover from Jeuveau treatments in San Diego. For patients that are concerned about bruising Dr. Kolstad recommends receiving the Jeuveau treatment on Friday and using the weekend to recover.
