A patient asked 5 months ago
I understand both Botox and Jeuveau are similar in the result produced but are they different enough that it will work for me if Botox hasn’t ? Botox, dysport and Xeomin no longer work for me. I am 52 years old, it is not from overuse and my facial plastic surgeon as well as two other board certified plastic surgeons confirmed this – I tried 3 different doctors over the past few years. Thanks.

Botox Immunity

 

Hi and thank you for your question! Resistance to Botox is rare but I have seen it in a few of my patients who gradually need more units to see the same response and it is often attributed to resistance/immunity to Botox. In such cases, some patients may respond better when switching to other neuromodulators, so you can try Jeuveau (or Dysport/Xeomin) and hopefully you will see better results. I hope it helps and good luck!
