Maryland Jeuveau Injections
Smooth crow’s feet & brow lines with the NEWTOX on the block
Like Kleenex & Coke, BOTOX® has become a household name, synonymous with neurotoxin injections designed to help reduce the appearance of frown lines in the upper face. But BOTOX hasn’t been the only cosmetic botulinum toxin on the market in a number of years—Dr. Garazo uses both BOTOX and Dysport to provide patients with the best option for their individual needs. And now, he’s pleased to welcome a new option at Plastic Surgery Services: Jeuveau™.

What is Jeuveau?
Like BOTOX, Jeuveau is an injectable botulinum toxin type A neuromodulator. Essentially, neurotoxin injectables work by temporarily interrupting signals between nerves and muscles, preventing facial movements that lead to and deepen expression lines on the brow and around the eyes.
Once injected, Jeuveau begins working over the course of a week. You’ll notice your expression lines starting to smooth out rather than deepening when you emote. You should not feel or look “frozen,” just more relaxed.
Is Jeuveau different than BOTOX?
When it comes to your experience and results, Jeuveau and BOTOX are incredibly similar. In fact, Jeuveau is the first neurotoxin introduced with the same molecular structure as BOTOX. But there are a few differences between the two products:
- While BOTOX is used both cosmetically and medically (to treat sweating, migraines, and more), Jeuveau is formulated and approved specifically for cosmetic wrinkle reduction.
- Jeuveau is formulated with a proprietary “Hi Pure” technology to improve the longevity of the product and, perhaps, extend the lifetime of results.
- BOTOX is freeze-dried whereas Jeveau is vacuum-dried, which is thought to improve potency.
How long does Jeuveau last?
On average, your results should last around three to four months. However, the long-term results of Jeuveau are still being studied to determine if the formulation and packaging of the product have improved longevity.
We often recommend that our injectables patients plan on scheduling maintenance treatments before the full effects of your initial injections wear off. This will help you continue to look natural.
Does Jeuveau have side effects?
Jeaveau was not shown to have any serious adverse side effects during clinical trials, though you should expect a few mild and short-lived effects. Tenderness, swelling, redness, headache, and/or bruising after treatment are common side effects with most injectables, though they are typically manageable and resolve quickly.
How much does Jeuveau cost?
The price of Jeuveau is similar to BOTOX per unit or per treatment. How many units you will need, and thus your final cost, will depend on which areas you are having treated and how severe your concerns are.
