A patient asked 2 years ago
I have used Botox for about 15 years and the last few years it only works for about 3 to 4 weeks. Will I have better luck with Jeuveau??

Jeuveau instead of Botox

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin and Dysport are all from the same family of medications with similar active agent derived from botulinum toxin which works to relax muscles. Some patients might gradually develop some “resistance” to these medications after years of use and in such cases, switching from one type to another (e.g. Botox to Jeuveau as you described) can be considered and it might help in some patients. I hope it helps and good luck!
