Jeuveau® is the newest neuromodulator for adults to hit the market and is structurally similar to Botox®. It is an FDA-approved prescription medication (injectable) used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).
How Jeuveau® Treatment Works
Jeuveau® is injected into facial muscles and stops your nerves from telling your muscles to flex, temporarily smoothing moderate to severe lines between the brows.

What is the active ingredient in Jeuveau®?
The active ingredient in Jeuveau® is botulinum toxin type A. The inactive ingredients are human serum albumin and sodium chloride.
What is the difference between Jeuveau® and Botox®?
Jeuveau® and Botox® are both neurotoxins made from botulinum toxin type A, but they differ in the manufacturing and purification processes. Even though both products are great for treating frown lines, Botox® is FDA-approved to treat many other cosmetic concerns and medical conditions.
Your dermatology provider will determine which product is best for you. Some people respond better to Jeuveau®, and others respond better to Botox®.
How long does Jeuveau® treatment take?
Treatment is quick, taking no more than 10 minutes of your time.
