Jeuveau is a new, FDA-approved injectable neurotoxin. It works just like the other injectable neurotoxins (Botox and Dysport) – it relaxes facial muscles via a paralytic effect. The availability of Jeuveau provides patients another option as different toxins work better for different patients. Subtle variations like the strain of toxin used or the presence of proteins in the drug’s formula explain why one drug might be more beneficial to a specific patient.
Similar to Dysport, Jeuveau might be a good choice for Botox patients who find Botox no longer works because their body has developed antibodies.
