Jeuveau is an injectable used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on various areas of the face.
It was approved by the FDA in February 2019. Jeuveau (pronounced Jū vō) is a play off of the French word “nouveau,” which means “new” or “modern.” It is an injectable alternative for Botox, and the first injectable of its kind to be approved by the FDA in 10 years, which is why it is often referred to by its nickname, “Newtox.”
Drs. Cohen and Swartz were honored to be invited to an exclusive advisory board meeting for Jeuveau and were among the first doctors in the country approved to use it at their practice locations in Bala Cynwyd, PA, and Voorhees, NJ.
Drs. Cohen and Swartz are focused on providing natural-looking results and are excited to be able to offer this new treatment option to patients.
How Does Jeuveau Work?
Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A, the same “active ingredient” found in popular injectables like Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin.
Jeuveau prevents, reduces, or eliminates lines by relaxing the underlying muscles, therefore preventing them from flexing which causes wrinkles. Specifically, Jeuveau was created to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, called glabellar lines, but commonly known as “11s”.
What is Jeuveau Used For?
While Jeuveau was designed specifically to treat frown lines, it can also be used to treat the following:
- Soften crow’s feet
- Remove frown lines between brows
- Smooth the forehead
- Smooth lip lines
- Prevent chin dimpling
- Lift the corners of the mouth
- Relax “bands” in the neck
- Lift the brows
- Relax bunny lines on the nose
What to expect during a Jeuveau treatment
If you are a new patient interested in getting a Jeuveau treatment, the first step is to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, you will meet with Dr. Cohen or Dr. Swartz to explain what you are hoping to achieve with your treatment. During this time, they will explain the options to you and make their recommendations for your treatment plan. If you and Dr. Cohen or Dr. Swartz decide that a Jeuveau treatment is right for you, you can usually get the treatment during the same visit as the consultation.
Face time with every patient is extremely important to Drs. Cohen and Swartz. Every treatment is performed personally by Drs. Cohen and Swartz, never an assistant or other staff members. After the consultation, the actual treatment usually takes about 15 minutes.
Recovery time and side effects vary with each patient. Patients may experience minimal swelling and bruising immediately following the procedure. However, most patients can return to work the same day or the following day, looking and feeling great!

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a good treatment option for those who are looking to improve the look of frown lines and forehead lines. There is minimal to no downtime after you get treated, allowing you to go about the rest of your day with no inconvenience.

How long does a Jeuveau treatment last?
A Jeuveau treatment typically lasts for 3-6 months. You are able to receive new treatments before the effects are entirely metabolized, helping to keep your youthful appearance all the time.
What is the difference between Jeuveau and Botox?
These two injectables are very similar and can be used for similar treatment areas. The main difference between Botox and Jeuveau is that they are derived from different strains of the same toxin. Botox is derived from onabotulinumtoxinA and Jeuveau from prabotulinumtoxinA.
While Botox was developed to be used for both cosmetic and medical treatments (like treating migraines), Jeuveau is clinically developed for cosmetic purposes only.
Which injectable you choose will ultimately depend on what is recommended by Drs. Cohen and Swartz, and your own personal preference.
