What is JEUVEAU (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs)?
In US it’s called Jeuveau and in South Korea it’s known as Nabota
It’s simply another neuromodulator on the market which helps to soften and relax angry lines between the eyebrows called as frown limes or glabella lines.
We know it’s safe, we know it works by the same mechanism as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin by temporary relaxing the muscle.
What is so special about Jeuveau?
It’s is difficult to say now, but new doesn’t necessarily mean good and more time is needed to really see how well this new neurotoxin compares to two current pioneers on the field Botox and Dysport

What is the difference between JEUVEAU and Botox?
They are essentially the same class of medications, under a class of neurotoxins. They both produced from Toxin type A and administered by an injection with similar efficacy and duration intervals. They are just like Coke and Pepsi. Some people don’t care. Others, feel the taste difference.
What is the difference between JEUVEAU and Dysport?
The difference is in the name of the toxin and the dosage administered, but for a patient, the efficacy is essentially the same. Patient should try both and determine if they have preference and if they notice any difference in the effect and well as the duration of the product.
What is the difference between JEUVEAU and Xeomin?
These medications are made by different companies, they use different bacteria strains but both use Type A Toxin. They both require an injection for preparation and safety and efficacy is very similar.
What is the difference between JEUVEAU and Myobloc?
They belong to the same class of drugs, but they have very different characteristics. JEUVEAU is type A toxin, while Myobloc is Type B toxin. Their dosage units are different and cannot be interchanged, 20 units of JEUVEAU is almost like 2500 units of MyoBloc. Please leave it up to your healthcare professional to determine your optimal dosing.
