There’s a new injectable neurotoxin on the block, and its name is Jeuveau™. It’s also been lovingly coined “NewTox,” because it works the same way as BOTOX® Cosmetic. One is not better than the other, but treatments may indicate that Jeuveau™ injections may last longer. We also know many of our patients are BOTOX® loyalists, and we still trust its results, reputation and efficacy as well. Therefore, we’re happy to provide both of these options to patients at our Lake Oswego practice. Give both a try and see which one you prefer!

Hello, Jeuveau™: Another Option for Facial Rejuvenation
Jeuveau™ – a name inspired by “nouveau,” meaning “new” – is highly structurally similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic. This NewTox injectable was FDA-approved specifically for cosmetic rejuvenation this past February, which means it has received the FDA’s stamp of approval for safety and effectiveness for its intended use.
Jeuveau™ is FDA approved to treat:
- Vertical lines between eyebrows (also called glabellar lines or “11s”)
The two injectables are different strains of the same toxin. BOTOX® is onabotulinumA, while Jeuveau™ is prabotulinumtoxinA. The former is created by Allergan at their Westport, Ireland facility, while the latter comes to us from the company Evolus, out of Seoul, South Korea. The injections work the same way, by temporarily halting the over-activity of specific muscles that cause furrows and wrinkles. Both injectables allow you to retain your emotive expression, but simply relax the contractions that cause unsightly wrinkles.
The Jeuveau™ Treatment Process
This fast, no-downtime treatment includes the following:
- Visit our office for the injection appointment
- Relax while we inject Jeuveau™ in the treatment areas
- Leave the office with the option to get right back to your normal routine – there’s no downtime
The vast majority of people describe these injections as extremely tolerable. Most people don’t even need a topical anesthetic. You will feel a slight prick as the injection is administered.
Patients can start to see results around 3-5 days after injection, with full results expected by 2 weeks. The results may last 3-4 months, just like BOTOX®, and potentially a little longer. You can schedule another injection appointment after 90 days to maintain the effect.
“I had it on a Friday afternoon and by Sunday morning, my forehead was smooth and lines were erased. I feel that it set up quickly and with greater results” -happy patient from Burgess Plastic Surgery
