An Overview of Nuceiva® Injectables

A Quick History of Nuceiva®
 In the past there were only a few anti-wrinkle treatments to choose from that offered great results and were approved for use by the FDA. BOTOX® was the household name and market dominator with widespread popularity. About 7 years ago Nuceiva® was approved by Health Canada, the first new anti-wrinkle treatment approved in 20 years.
Success and Safety of Nuceiva®
This advanced neuromodulator has experienced great success for patients looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It has a proven safety record with no reports of adverse side effects or complications from its use. Because it is made of up the same molecule as Botox®, and because of Botox’s track record, doctors and patients can be confident that Nuceiva® is safe for use.
What Nuceiva® Wrinkle Relaxer Does
Nuceiva®, also known as  Jeuveau in the United States, is a treatment that blocks muscle movements near the eyebrows, called ‘glabellar lines’. Unlike other similar products on the market, it was made specifically for this cosmetic purpose. Nuceiva® has great success in reducing the appearance of crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines around the forehead and eyebrows.

A: There are many different reasons to use each type of injectable, but Nuceiva® offers up some features that make it more desirable over BOTOX®.
