Is Jeaveau the New Botox?
For ages, we have been obsessed with clear, smooth, beautiful skin, and there are numerous products on the market catering to these needs. But, one medication was revolutionary, Botox. Ever since its FDA approval in 2001 for the treatment of frown lines, it has garnered immense popularity. Jeaveau is a new medication in this field. It claims to be more effective than Botox.
Jeaveau and Botox are neurotoxins derived from bacteria, Clostridium botulinum that causes a fatal disease, botulism. However, it can turn into a beneficial medication when injected with controlled doses. The toxin injected into the targeted spot temporarily prevents the muscles from contracting. Hence, relaxing the muscles and improving the wrinkles. Jeaveau works the same way, but it uses a different botulinum toxin. While Botox uses onabotulinumtoxinA, Jeaveau uses prabotulismtoxinA.
Which is more Efficient
Currently, no such data is comparing Botox and Jeaveau, but they have been tested against placebo doses and have proven effective. Botox has emerged slightly more efficient, but both have almost similar effects in the long run. Since Jeaveau has been FDA-approved only for the glabella region, it is a cheaper option for someone just beginning with the cosmetic treatment.
Scientifically, Jeaveau and Botox consist of heavier proteins than Dysport and Xeomin, which aid in precision.
