Evolus Jeuveau Questions and Answers
As this is a new product, many people don’t have the answers they need to choose Jeuveau. To help, we have prepared a FAQ section below to guide you toward the answers to the questions you have about decreasing the signs of aging with Jeuveau.
How Does Jeuveau Work?

How Is Jeuveau Different From Botox, Dysport and Xeomin?
Evolus Jeuveau is different from Botox, Dysport and Xeomin in small ways. With Jeuveau, the cosmetic product uses the same toxin as the one used for Botox. This means that the products are highly interchangeable, but Jeuveau may be a better option. Choosing one cosmetic product over another depends on your unique needs and goals.

Evolus Jeuveau is a cosmetic product developed from Prabotulinumtoxin A-xvfs, a substance that operates as an acetylcholine release inhibitor in addition to a neuromuscular-blocking agent. The substance is vacuum-dried, so it becomes a powder that your dermatologist will reconstitute to administer the injections. Every vial of Jeuveau includes 100 units of botulinum toxin type A neurotoxin complex, 0.5 mg of human serum albumin and 0.9 mg of sodium chloride.
Is Jeuveau Painful?

If fillers are also administered, treatment will take longer.
When Will I See Results?
As with other types of botulinum toxin injections, you may see an improvement in the signs of aging in as little as a few days. The final results of the cosmetic treatment, though, could take up to several weeks to materialize.

Some people may experience a shorter duration because their muscle mass is high and because their body metabolizes the substance more quickly than others.
