Jeuveau® San Francisco
Created as a more affordable option for patients seeking to smooth out dynamic lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and the bands around the neck, Jeuveau® is an extensively tested treatment that we are excited to offer our patients.
Jeuveau® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used in adults for a short period of time (temporary) to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).
It was approved by the FDA in 2019 for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines resulting from dynamic muscle action.
For patients seeking a more affordable option to smooth out dynamic lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and even areas such as the bands around the neck, Jeuveau® will provide results similar to Botox.
Made of Botulinum Toxin type A, the cosmetic form of the toxin used in Jeuveau® is considered to be a neuromuscular blocking agent. Also sometimes referred to Newtox, Jeuveau® (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) is the first neurotoxin product that is exclusively made for aesthetic use.
When injected, the active ingredient in Jeuveau® inhibits the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, resulting in the partial chemical denervation of the targeted muscle, and this decrease in movement smooths out the overlying skin.
Over time, reinnervation of the muscle takes place, and follow up treatments to maintain your rejuvenated appearance are necessary.
The Appearance Care Center offer patients in San Francisco a variety of safe and effective product options for natural-looking rejuvenation.

Is Jeuveau® safe?
Corey S. Maas MD™ , Medical Director of The Appearance Care Center, was one of the investigators in the clinical research trials for Jeuveau®. The trials involved more than 2100 patients globally, including two US Phase III trials, and European and Canadian Phase III trials versus the market leader Botox®.
Jeuveau® treatments provided comparable results, with no reported serious drug-related adverse events.
At The Appearance Care Center ™, we are confident in providing Jeuveau® to all our patients.
How does Jeuveau® compare to Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?
The differences between the various botoxin products are subtle, and mostly a matter of personal preference. An in-person consultation at the Appearance Care Center will give us the opportunity to learn more about your individual needs, and then recommend the best product for you.
Like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, Jeuveau® is also measured in units. One unit of Jeuveau® is comparable to a unit of Botox, and presents a similar outcome.
What is the cost of Jeuveau®?
Jeuveau® is currently more affordable than Botox, and we are excited to offer our patients a comparable option for smoothing out lines in the forehead and around the eyes. The final cost will be determined by the number of units used, and the first step of getting an accurate cost for Jeuveau® in San Francisco is to schedule an appointment at the Appearance Care Center.
How long does Jeuveau® last?
The average patient will see 3 to 6 months of rejuvenation results before requiring a follow-up Jeuveau® treatment. The length of time between treatments will also be related to the numbers of units administered at the previous appointment, which significantly contributes to the longevity of the patient’s results. Many patients are interested in reducing the number of anti-wrinkle treatments to 1-2 times per year, and by adjusting the amount of units, this is often possible.
