Aesthetics Hawaii is pleased to offer the latest FDA approved brand of injectable botox – called Jeuveau™. It is the first FDA-approved brand of “botox” in nearly a decade. This new addition will give patients another option for aesthetic wrinkle reduction on Oahu.
Jeuveau works similarly to BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin by temporarily relaxing muscles to reduce the appearance of moderate and severe wriknles on the face for 3-4 months. We have tested and carry all four FDA approved brands and consider them to be similar in onset (3-7 days) and duration (3-4 months) and efficacy. We have tested all the brands against each other in the Crow’s feet area (left vs right eyes) and there is no significant clinical difference.
*** Do not be fooled by the advertising claims and marketing of each company as the active ingredient (Botulinum Toxin-A) is the same. We want to be honest with our patients and in our experience – all the brands work the same way. Think of it as buying “Ibuprofen” and the options include Motrin, Advil and other brand names. The most important factor in getting good results is the skill and experience of the injector. Another helpful analogy is “getting a haircut from different stylists”. If you get a good haircut – it’s not the scissors. It’s the person cutting the hair. ***
Our loyalty is to our patients and not the drug companies! If patients have a preference for one brand – then we will use what that person wants. (Please note – the pricing is the same for all four brands and we will leverage the drug companies to offer discounts and specials when possible.) So whichever company can give the best financial incentive for our patients – that is the brand that we will probably promote most.
We are very excited to be one of the first offices in the US to offer Jeuveau. I have a great deal of experience using it internationally (Korea) and it works exactly the same way as the other FDA approved brands. Having a newer option will be better for us. Think of how you use antibiotics. Would you want the oldest antibiotic for an infection? Or would you rather have the newest one? It all depends on your preference.
