Newtox vs Botox: Which One’s The Cosmetic Miracle?

Newtox vs. Botox

The active component in Newtox Jeuveau and Botox is botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin acts by calming the muscles just below the skin. These amazing cosmetic injectables give the skin a much more smooth and more youthful appearance when used as a treatment for wrinkles.

In 2002 Newtox vs. Botox came into the picture as Botox received its initial cosmetic approval by the FD to address crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, glabellar lines i.e. wrinkles between your eyebrows; as well as the frown lines i.e. the wrinkles at the corners of your eyes.

Another botulinum toxin product, Jeuveau, hit the market a little later; and because Jeuveau has been available for less time, the FDA has only currently approved it for the treatment of glabellar lines.


You must first contact an expert aesthetician, such as the board-certified experts at Syra Aesthetics, before opting to get Jeuveau injections for frown lines. An in-depth consultation with experienced professionals will help you decide how many injections you would need and what parts of your face should be treated specifically.

You can discuss your treatment’s advantages and disadvantages during the consultation. This is also an excellent time to get the total estimate of costs and if necessary, set up a payment schedule.

Jeuveau does not lead to any downtime, but you can take the day off so you won’t feel rushed when you go to your appointment. Even though Jeuveau hasn’t been examined or approved by the FDA, an aesthetician may use it to treat the face, as well as other parts of the body. This is known as off-label use.

Although the active component in both injections is exactly the same, the particular formulations differ significantly. It may take some trial and error to choose between Jeuveau and Botox. Some people’s bodies naturally react to one of the two more favorably than the other.

If you’re new to botulinum toxin injections and need a more affordable starting point, Jeuveau might be a better choice in comparison to the much more popular and widely chosen Botox.

Moreover, if you want to treat glabellar lines, it’s your best choice. These wrinkles and other forms of face lines are treated using Botox.


Jeuveau and Botox differ primarily because Jeuveau uses a technology known as Hi-Pure. The product is purified through additional procedures during production, which should make it safer.

Another distinction between the two is that Jeuveau’s manufacturer, Evolus, is purely an aesthetic business. In other words, they solely use Newtox for cosmetic issues like wrinkles. In addition to treating wrinkles, Allergan’s Botox can also treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), recurrent headaches, muscle spasms, and problems, including bladder and bowel abnormalities.

Despite these variations, Botox and Newtox are extremely similar. In actuality, Jeuveau and Botox are the same size and have comparable structural features.

As a result, Jeuveau offers comparable effectiveness, onset, and outcomes that last three to four months to Botox.


Jeuveau and Botox function by obstructing the chemical signals that the nerves sent to the muscles, paralyzing the facial muscle causing them to relax, and preventing contraction. Botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin generated by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum is the same neurotoxin used to make both Newtox as well as Botox.

Both products can counteract aging symptoms. Botox and Newtox last for 3–4 months and work at the same rate; you can anticipate full results in 2 weeks – Which injectable is most suitable for you to utilize will be decided by your aesthetician. Bruising and swelling are the most frequent adverse effects of both Newtox and Botox, and they often go away within a few hours.


The FDA has given Jeuveau approval to treat glabellar lines, sometimes called “11 lines.” After years of scowling, frowning, squinting, and furrowing your brow, these vertical lines appear between your eyebrows.

Other injectables based on Botulinum toxin A are authorized for use in different facial regions, including:

  • Frown lines
  • Header lines


Botox is a well-liked cosmetic procedure because it produces noticeable results with little discomfort – but Botox also helps the skin by reducing the muscle tension that initially generates wrinkles.

In reality, because Botox is a muscle relaxant, it stops the facial muscles from overreacting to facial movements like scowls and chuckles.

Similar to when a sheet of paper is continuously folded, these repetitive actions cause the skin to wrinkle. By relaxing the skin and reducing wrinkles, Botox prevents these folds from deepening:

  • Botox Prevents Wrinkles
  • Help Your Skin Build Collagen
  • Long-Lasting Results


While Botox and Newtox have the same mechanism of action and duration, Botox offers more treatment options for both medical and cosmetic purposes than Newtox. Botox is still the industry standard despite introducing new rivals since it is secure, productive, and time-tested.
