Jeuveau™ (NEWTOX) in New Jersey
Injectable neurotoxins are the #1 cosmetic treatment in the United States, and it’s no wonder: they’re famously good at smoothing frown lines, crow’s feet, and other expression lines that unfairly age our faces. And now, we have a brand new option to meet your needs right here at The Parker Center, called Jeuveau™!
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau™ is an injectable botulinum toxin that is FDA approved for cosmetic treatment of glabellar lines (a.k.a. frown lines). Dubbed as the “NEWTOX”, this alternative to BOTOX achieves very similar results: wrinkles are greatly diminished and patients enjoy a better refreshed appearance for 3 to 4 months.
Jeuveau vs. BOTOX
The main difference between Jeuveau and BOTOX (and other BOTOX alternatives) is the formulation of the botulinum toxin. Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is purified using a unique, proprietary “Hi Pure” technology. It is also vacuum dried rather than freeze dried, which is thought to reduce breakdown of proteins in the product and preserve more of the active ingredients. Additionally, while BOTOX is FDA approved to treat a variety of concerns such as excessive sweating, Jeuveau was designed solely as a cosmetic medication.
In the end, Jeuveau and BOTOX work almost exactly the same for treating expression lines, although we do see slight variation in results for certain patients—just as we do with Dysport and Xeomin.
How much does Jeuveau “NEWTOX” cost?
Here at The Parker Center, Jeuveau costs roughly the same as the other neurotoxins, in the ballpark of $275 to $350 per area for one treatment. The exact total cost for any patient depends on the overall treatment plan and goals. We will provide a detailed price quote at your consultation, before you commit to treatment.
How do Jeuveau injections work?
Jeuveau injections for frown lines are just like any BOTOX, Dysport, or Xeomin treatment for the same purpose. After reviewing your goals and numbing the area with ice, our Nurse Injector Angela Parisi, RN will inject small amounts of Jeuveau into the specific muscles above the eyes that are responsible for frown lines. Treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes total.
When will I see results?
Effects are visible within the first five days for most patients, with final results appearing within two weeks after treatment. If you are planning treatment in preparation for a special event, we recommend scheduling your Jeuveau (or any neurotoxin) session at least one to two weeks in advance.
How long does Jeuveau last?
Results of Jeuveau typically last three to four months before fading. Scheduling follow-up treatments in this time window or as necessary can help you maintain your results.
Are there any side effects?
There is no downtime after Jeuveau, but mild, temporary redness, bruising, and swelling at the injection site is common. These effects typically disappear within a few days. If you are worried about a “frozen face” after Jeuveau, you can avoid this unwanted effect by choosing an experienced, trained Jeuveau injector, like Angela Parisi, RN here at The Parker Center. Angela has been our Nurse Injector for nearly 20 years and has undergone extensive training in all of our injectable products.
