Jeuveau is an injectable cosmetic that temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for moderate to severe age-related lines on the face.  Like Botox, Jeuveau contains botulinum toxin A, a neuromodulator that changes how nerve signals communicate with facial muscles. The properties in Jeuveau prevent these nerve signals from being transmitted, thereby relaxing muscles, and thus provides smoother skin when injected. However, unlike Botox, Jeuveau has an in-depth purification process, allowing patients to count on faster, longer-lasting results. Jeaveau touts itself as the “modern-made” ‘tox for this reason.

How Neuromodulators Work
As time goes on, our muscles work to create expressions which can wrinkle the skin. As a result, our skin shows lines, wrinkles, and furrows. This can be troubling for those who want to keep their age a secret, or for those who just want to look a little more awake and refreshed! Injectable treatments such as Jeuveau and Botox were developed to solve this problem. Both contain botulinum toxin A, a neurotoxin that, when injected, attaches itself onto the tissue until it latches on the neuromuscular junction.  This attachment to the junction blocks motor messages to the muscle, causing it to relax, and smooths the skin’s surface from wrinkles.
Jeuveau (pronounced joo-voh) is borrowed from the French word “nouveau,” which means new, modern, or up-to-date. Approved by the FDA in 2019, the injectable is considered a relative newcomer to the anti-aging injectable scene. Indeed, it was initially marketed as “Newtox.” However, despite its recent entry into the market, the active ingredients have been used since 1989.  Jeuveau is similar to the wildly popular Botox treatment because they both use a purified form of botulinum toxin to calm muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles. However, the difference between Jeuveau is that it issues Hi-Pure technology to process the prabotulinumtoxinA toxin used. It is a more involved purifying process for the protein that vacuums dry the toxin instead of freeze-drying like Botox. The technique causes deconstruction to the protein and remains more potent. This, in turn, allows for the faster treatment for deeper lines.
What Can Jeuveau Treat?
Jeuveau is a wonderful treatment for wrinkles and furrows caused by everyday facial muscle tension and contraction. They include:
- Glabellar lines: Horizontal creases that show between the eyebrows
- Frown lines: Vertical lines between the eyebrows and nose, usually when frowning
- Smile lines: Small lines appearing on the sides of the mouth
- Crow’s feet: Small facial folds on the corners of the eyes
- Brow furrows: Crimped skin around the brows and forehead
- Upper “Lip Flip:” Placed here, Jeaveaui releases the upper lip upwards and can create the illusion of fullness without dermal filler
- Neck: sometimes called the “Nefertiti Neck Lift,” neuromodulator can be injected into the platysmal bands of the neck to create a lifted effect.
Jeuveau is an excellent injectable solution that provides real results to patients—all without downtime or surgery. Within 1-2 days, patients can see the treatment soften facial wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive movements. Below are other benefits Jeuveau can offer:
- A quick, stress-free treatment that can fit into your busy schedule
- A cost-effective treatment, with a hassle-free rewards program for coupons
- A minimally invasive procedure without incision or scars
- A treatment that provides faster results than other neurotoxin treatments
- Rewarding and long-lasting results

Personal Consultation with Dr. Wooten
Dr. Anna Wooten, FACS is a highly accomplished plastic surgeon in the Pittsburgh area. She created Beleza Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa to provide patients with a warm, judgment-free environment in which to receive cosmetic treatments. Together, she and her staff will help you with your aesthetic journey to provide rewarding benefits.
We offer patients the convenience of meeting at one of our offices in Sewickley/Wexford or downtown Pittsburgh. Your consultation is your time to discuss your aesthetic goals, evaluate your current health, and examine the areas you wish to treat. Our nurse injectors will pay close attention to the extent of the dynamic wrinkles and skin laxity to recommend which treatment is best for you. If you qualify for this helpful treatment, the nurse will discuss the benefits, procedure details, and other concerns.
Like many injectable treatments, Jeuveau offers a streamlined process at every stage, including preparation. A few pre-treatment steps need to be completed before treatment to ensure a stress-free process. A nurse injector may advise you to stop taking certain aspirins and over-the-counter medications that may thin the blood a few weeks before treatment. On treatment day, we advise patients to come to their appointment with a fresh face without makeup. Additionally, we ask that patients arrive at the office nourished and hydrated – no empty stomachs!
Your 30-minute appointment will start by cleaning the treatment area of makeup or impurities. While the procedure does not require anesthesia, you can request a topical numbing agent for added comfort. The nurse injector will then administer Jeuveau into strategic areas in the facial muscles. The process is repeated until each area is addressed. Injecting the active components will temporarily inhibit communication between the nerves and wrinkle-producing muscles. You are free to leave and resume your daily commitments once treatment ends. Typically, we advise not to apply makeup or to exercise for the rest of the day.
Since there is no downtime, you can quickly return to your routine. However, you may experience residual stinging, discomfort, and discoloration for a few days. As a result, we recommend patients avoid strenuous activity until these symptoms subside. Do not attempt to rub or massage the face, as this could alter your results. Our nurse injectors may recommend taking OTC pain relievers for applying an ice pack to reduce these post-treatment symptoms.
Some patients can see results in as little as 24 hours after treatment, but most will see them within a few days. When the facial muscles become relaxed, the outward complexion of the face will appear smooth and balanced. Patients can expect their results to last anywhere from 3-6 months. After which, you can come back to our office to schedule additional sessions.
Corresponding & Complementary Procedures
Patients have many choices at their fingertips to enhance their facial appearance. A consultation with a nurse injector may recommend other treatments that provide similar results. They include:
Botox is a well-known neuromodulator similar to Jeuveau. The neurotoxin protein temporarily stops muscle movement at the treatment site when injected. Gradually, the treatment reverses the appearance of age-related wrinkles. In addition, the versatility of Botox treatments means it can treat multiple ailments, including chronic migraines and excessive sweating.
This non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment uses the power of light to treat a variety of common skin concerns. Intense pulsed light can improve the appearance of rosacea, acne, hyperpigmentation, and many other signs of aging. Plus, there’s no downtime, and any lingering redness is gone within a few hours!
Patients with considerable facial skin laxity or prefer longer-lasting results can opt for a facelift. This surgical solution makes careful incisions around the face to tighten skin, strengthen muscles, and pull the skin taut. The result is a tighter complexion free of wrinkles or extra skin.
