Jeuveau™ is the newest antiaging treatment offered at Boston Medical Aesthetics. Jeuveau™ is an FDA-approved product that helps smooth moderate to severe glabellar lines, which are the wrinkles between the eyebrows. It is FDA approved for glabellar lines, but like BOTOX®, it can be used for a variety of other areas including frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, jaw slimming, etc. Jeuveau™ is the newest wrinkle-relaxing product to come to the United States in almost 10 years, and we are excited to offer it to our Boston-area patients.
Jeuveau™ (pronouced “ju-vo”) is a neurotoxin that is structurally similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic and has a similarly excellent safety profile. Like BOTOX®, Jeuveau™ works by preventing the facial movements that cause wrinkles. In clinical trials, Jeuveau™ was shown to be equivalent to Botox in its ability to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines. Just one treatment can help smooth away the lines that are caused by smiling, squinting, and frowning for approximately 3-4 months.
While BOTOX® was originally developed to treat various medical conditions, Jeuveau™ is specifically designed for aesthetic purposes only. It is made using a modern manufacturing process called Hi-Pure™ technology to provide you with optimal results.

Who Can Have JEUVEAU™
Anyone who wants to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines can benefit from Jeuveau™. Jeuveau™ can be especially helpful for those who:
Are bothered by wrinkles between the eyebrows (“frown lines” or “11’s”)
Want to lessen the look of facial expression lines across the forehead or around the eyes
Desire a younger-looking appearance
Want to rejuvenate their face without surgery
Are interested in an affordable injectable treatment
Jeuveau™ is not recommended for individuals who have had an allergic reaction to BOTOX® or any other botulinum toxin product, or for people who have a skin infection in the injection area.
Your JEUVEAU™ Treatment
Our board-certified Nurse Practitioners, Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC or Elizabeth Aponte, DNP, will perform your Jeuveau™ treatment. Both Jennifer and Elizabeth are highly experienced in administering cosmetic injectables like Jeuveau™. They will work with you to determine an individual treatment plan so that your specific cosmetic concerns are met allowing you to look and feel more confident.
Jeuveau™ is performed in our office and usually takes 30 minutes or less. The treatment area will be numbed with ice prior to your injections to reduce any discomfort and to minimize swelling. Topical numbing cream is also available.
During the procedure, Jeuveau™ is injected into the appropriate locations using a fine needle. Most of our patients find this process to be very tolerable and quick. Jennifer or Elizabeth will work with you to determine how much Jeuveau™ should be used, and in exactly which locations. This will ensure you look as natural as possible and avoid a “frozen” appearance.
Side effects are generally mild and may include redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. These effects should subside within a few hours or days, if you experience them at all. More serious side effects can occur, but this is uncommon. Jennifer or Elizabeth will thoroughly explain the risks of treatment during your consultation.
The effects of your Jeuveau™ treatment should appear over the next 10 to 14 days. You may be asked to come back to our office for a follow-up appointment if you have any questions or concerns. The results from Jeuveau™ usually last about 3 to 6 months. Additional maintenance treatments can help you maintain your new, younger look.
