Jeuveau vs. Botox
Jeuveau and Botox have many similarities. However, there are a few noteworthy differences between them. Unlike Botox, which is FDA approved for treating headaches, eyelid spasms, excessive underarm sweating, and other medical conditions, Jeuveau is only for aesthetic use. In addition, Botox is FDA approved for the cosmetic treatment of the glabellar (frown) lines, crows feet, and forehead lines. Over 100 million vials of Botox have been sold. Jeuveau was specifically formulated for cosmetic purposes and is approved for cosmetic improvement of glabellar (frown) lines, with other cosmetic areas able to be treated off label.
Since both Jeuveau and Botox treatments have the same goal of smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, we can help you determine which one is the better option for your unique aesthetic goals and preferences. Often times, we’ll recommend Botox as we believe it’s the gold standard for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles since its approval for aesthetic use in 2002.
Good Candidates for Jeuveau and Botox
If you are concerned with moderate to severe wrinkles, Botox and Jeuveau can be a good fit. Both treatments are similar in cost and longevity so the ideal treatment for you will depend on your personal preferences. If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neuromuscular condition, our dermatologists do not recommend these treatments.
