If you’ve heard of Jeuveau, you likely know that it is a new cosmetic injectable designed to relax wrinkles and lines.
It’s also the first neurotoxin to enter the market in the past 10 years and set to compete with Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau – due to its novelty and considerably lower price point.
While Jeuveau’s affordability is certainly attractive, some people are mistrustful of it and are asking: Jeuveau is affordable, but is it legit?
Continue reading to learn all about Jeuveau’s similarities to Botox and the reason for its reduced price.
What Is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a new FDA-approved neurotoxin that has taken the aesthetic industry by storm.
Like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, it’s made of botulinum toxin type A and designed to smooth wrinkles and lines for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Jeuveau Is Affordable, But Is It Legit?
In addition to being the first neurotoxin to enter the market in almost a decade, Jeuveau is also gaining attention for its affordable price, which is 20-30 percent less than Botox.
And while this reduced cost is quite appealing, it has many people wondering: Jeuveau is affordable, but is it legit?
Patients considering Jeuveau can rest assured that it is a safe and effective alternative to Botox. In fact, of all neurotoxins, Jeuveau is the most-structurally similar to Botox and has the same molecular weight of 900 kDa.
As such, Jeuveau and Botox offer identical safety and efficacy profiles. Their side effects and risks are also comparable.
Why Is Jeuveau Priced Less Than Botox?
One of the main reasons that Jeuveau is priced lower than Botox is that it’s only for aesthetic use, while Botox has a number of medical indications.
Accordingly, Jeuveau is not subjected to insurance coverage and reimbursement, which in turn decreases cost for the manufacturer and providers. These savings are ultimately passed on to the patient.
