How Does Jeuveau Differ From Botox?
While Jeuveau and Botox contain the same ingredients and are both neurotoxins, there are some minor differences between the two.

Moreover, Jeuveau has only been approved by the FDA for treating glabellar lines, but, like Botox, it can be used to treat many other types of fine lines and wrinkles as well.

Jeuveau takes approximately 15 minutes to administer, you can see full results within 7 days after receiving the treatment, and Jeuveau treatments tend to last 3-4 months on average.
