Jeuveau vs Botox: Differences You Should Know

Jeuveau vs Botox

On a yearly basis, one of the top non-invasive cosmetic treatments that people opt for is Botox injections – while it is the most popular neurotoxin that is used to fight against wrinkles and frown lines, there are a few other brands too that ensure to provide similar results.

Among the injectables that compete against Botox, there’s one injectable called Jeuveau that has successfully found its customer base. Being an FDA-approved neuromodulator, Jeuveau was devised with the objective of fight-off wrinkles.

At Syra Aesthetics we consistently work hard, innovate, and improve to maintain the high quality of our services and the exceptional patient experience that we offer when it comes to non-surgical aesthetic rejuvenation – Offering an extensive range of the best cosmetic injectables from dermal fillers and botox, to Jeuveau and much more!

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin, popularly known as Botox is a chemical that is made using a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. This toxin has the capability of causing a rare and harmful infection called botulism – however, when administered appropriately in microdoses, it can be used for cosmetic as well as medical concerns, by targeting specific areas of the body.

Not many people know but there are two versions of Botox available in the market – The first one is the popularly known Botox Cosmetic, which was FDA-approved in 2002 with the main purpose being to serve as an anti-ageing agent against wrinkles. And the second version is the medical Botox which was introduced and approved much before and is capable of treating a range of health issues such as migraines, overactive bladder, and even excessive sweating.

 What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau, also known as “Newtox” is an increasingly popular cosmetic injectable which is also made using botulinum toxin. After being FDA-approved in 2019, it was introduced to the world as a very effective cosmetic injectable enabling you to remove frown lines and wrinkles.

Differences Between Botox and Jeuveau

Newtox and Botox have been popularly compared for the similarities that they possess – However, there are a couple of aspects that make them different from each other. The major differences that they have come from the types of wrinkles they treat and how they’re made:


Jeuveau as well as Botox, both of these injectables can be used for people who’re above the age of 18 – However, Botox has the capability and possesses the approval to treat several cosmetic conditions, while Jeuveau has limitations.

While Botox has the approval to be used against frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet lines, and even forehead lines – Jeuveau on the other hand, can only be opted for the removal of frown lines between the eyebrows.

As mentioned earlier, Jeuveau’s use is limited to cosmetic treatments only, and that too just the frown lines; but Botox, along with having the approval for cosmetic treatment, can also be utilized to treat a range of medical conditions such as chronic migraines, overactive bladder, and excessive sweating.


Is Jeuveau better than Botox?

While both Jeuveau and Botox produce amazing results against age-induced wrinkles, there aren’t any conducted studies so far, that can factually state which one works better than the other.

When Botox got FDA-approved, there were two specific types of research that backed Botox to be approved for cosmetic treatments. In these studies, researchers studied the effects of Botox on frown lines within a period of 30 days – 80% of people who were subject to this research showed major improvement in the removal of frown lines, as compared to only 3% of people who received a placebo.

A similar study was carried out for Jeuveau as well, to gauge its effectiveness against frown lines in a 30 days period. The study showed that 70% of the people who were administered Newtox, experienced amazing results, in comparison to 1% of people who received a placebo.

Jeuveau vs Botox – How long to see results?

Botox and Newtox, both have repeatedly proven to start showing results within 1-2 days, while complete results kick in later. Both their full results have been reported to last for 3-4 months, varying for different individuals. While both are very effective and safe procedures, neither should be used frequently, the recommended frequency is getting them injected once in 3 months.

Side Effects

Botox and Jeuveau, both injections are mostly well-tolerated by the users, considering the fact that they were administered appropriately. However, there have been a number of people who have experienced a couple of side effects from getting either of the injectables, but where you get these injectables administered also plays it part in having side effects.

Commonly reported side effects for Botox and Newtox to include: 

  • Headaches
  • Eyelid drooping
  • Brow drooping
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising at injection sites

Botox or Jeuveau?
