Beauty lovers, rejoice!
On February 1, the FDA announced the approval of Jeuveau, a new neurotoxin to treat frown lines. Evolus, which markets Jeuveau, is the first company in nearly a decade to enter the fastest-growing segment of the medical aesthetics industry.
Experts expect Evolus’ new wrinkle treatment will be a key rival to Allergan’s Botox.
There’s A New Wrinkle Treatment In Town
The FDA approval for Jeuveau comes less than one year after the California-based company received marketing approval to sell its wrinkle treatment for frown lines.
The Botox-like treatment went through two U.S. Phase III trials and a global study of over 2,100 patients with glabellar lines, also known as “frown lines” between the eyebrows. The product trials were met with positive results which have led researchers to believe Jeuveau is a compelling and innovative option for the aesthetic treatment of glabellar lines.
Consumers should expect Jeuveau to be available throughout the United States starting in spring 2019. The company says it plans to price the treatment 20 percent to 25 percent lower than Allergan’s Botox, which generated $3.5 billion in sales last year.
For physicians and nurses who plan to receive Botox certification, a new wrinkle option for frown lines allows them to expand their service menu and offer their clients a more affordable alternative to Botox.
