What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA) is an effective, safe injectable botulinum toxin that’s FDA-approved to address glabellar and frown lines. It’s a recent addition to this particular category of cosmetic treatments. Since Jeuveau isn’t as expensive as Botox, it’s often recommended for patients who are trying neurotoxin injections for the first time.
Like Botox, Jeuveau is a neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin type A. When injected, Jeuveau paralyzes the facial muscles that cause certain wrinkles, softens existing wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming.
Jeuveau treatments help our clients achieve:
- Smoother wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes
- Minimized lines in the center of the forehead
- A younger appearance and improved complexion
- Lasts up to 6 months, making it one of the longer-lasting neuromodulators on the market.
Treatments with Jeuveau are convenient and don’t require downtime afterward, so it’s easy to return to your everyday activities right after your appointment.
Why We Use Jeuveau
At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, we use Jeuveau for its long-lasting efficacy. Jeuveau is one option in our toolbox of neuromodulators. We’re confident it delivers satisfying results.
Jeuveau vs. Botox
So, why choose Jeuveau over Botox? While it’s not approved for use in as many treatment areas as Botox is, Jeuveau is an effective solution for glabellar lines and crow’s feet. It’s also less expensive than Botox, making it easier on your wallet.

Ideal Candidates for Jeuveau
Good candidates for Jeaveau are adults who wish to improve the appearance of crow’s feet and glabellar lines. These are the only FDA-approved uses for Jeuveau.
Off-label uses for Jeuveau (which other botulinum toxin injections may also address) include:
- Abnormal sweating. Neurotoxin injections can treat abnormal sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, by preventing specific nerves from activating the sweat glands.
- Frown lines. These fine lines and creases appear over a lifetime of frowning, laughing, smoking, and smiling.
- Vertical neck lines. Botulinum toxin injections can smooth pronounced lines and help better define the jawline.
- Migraines. Injectable neurotoxins such as botulinum toxin can ease the symptoms of persistent migraine headaches in some individuals.
- Muscle spasms. Since it’s a muscle relaxant, botulinum toxin is sometimes used off-label to ease muscle spasms.
- Teeth-clenching or grinding (bruxism). When injected in the jaw muscle, botulinum toxin can relieve clients who grind their teeth.
Depending on your concern and the goals you want to achieve, your doctor will choose the best botulinum toxin injections for you.
Avoid Jeuveau injections if you’re allergic to prabotulinumtoxinA or other forms of botulinum toxin. The treatment sites should be infection-free and without existing muscle weakness or swelling.
Before & Afters
After a Jeuveau treatment, your results will take a few days to appear. Results may be visible as early as two days after treatment and last as long as 5–6 months.
Please note that the clients who appear in the featured photos may have undergone additional skin rejuvenation or cosmetic surgery treatments in addition to Jeuveau. Specific results and outcomes are not guaranteed.
What to Expect from Your Jeuveau Treatment
Arrive at your appointment with clean skin if possible. You’ll recline comfortably on a padded treatment table while your provider cleanses and disinfects your skin; you may request a topical numbing cream if desired.
Your provider will prepare vials of Jeuveau based on how many units you need for the treatment areas, then perform the Jeuveau injections. It only takes ten to fifteen minutes, on average, to complete Jeuveau treatments.
Recovery and Aftercare
Jeuveau injections don’t require downtime. Once your appointment is over, you can resume your day as usual.
However, it’s important to avoid rubbing or pressing the injection sites in the hours following the appointment. Doing so can cause the botulinum toxin to move away from the treatment areas, causing muscle paralysis in other parts of your face.

Are Jeuveau treatments safe?
Botulinum toxin injections have been in use for more than three decades. Although it’s a newer formulation, Jeuveau is considered safe and effective. Possible side effects include:
- Allergic reaction
- Blurry eyesight
- Drooping of the eyelid or other areas of the face
- Dry eye
- Elevated white blood cell count
- Injection site pain or bruising
- Skin redness
- Upper respiratory tract infection
- Weakness of facial muscles
Rarely, the botulinum toxin in Jeuveau can move into different areas of the body. This can cause difficulty breathing, swallowing, and speaking. It can also cause full-body muscle weakness. If you experience these side effects, contact your doctor right away.
What conditions does Jeuveau help to address?
Jeuveau is FDA-approved to address crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows. However, botulinum toxin is used for a number of other applications, including:
- Bruxism (clenched teeth)
- Horizontal neck lines
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Lines around the mouth and nose
- Migraine headaches
- Muscle spasms
How many Jeuveau treatments do I need before results are visible?
You’ll get visible results after one Jeuveau treatment! However, it will take about two days at minimum to begin seeing changes. Results will continue to develop over time.
When the results begin to wear off, you will see the treated wrinkles and lines re-emerge. As long as you schedule your follow-up appointments at least three months apart, you can return for regular maintenance.
Does it hurt to get Jeuveau injections?
Jeuveau injections could cause minimal discomfort at the injection site. An injection might feel like a slight pinch. After treatment, you can ice the injection area for comfort.
Will Jeuveau address all my cosmetic goals?
We provide multiple brands of neurotoxin injections, and each kind addresses a specific concern. At your Jeuveau consultation, we’ll talk about your options based on your goals. Our providers may also administer different products to separate treatment areas.
