About Nuceiva™

We all know how difficult it is to avoid aging, but now there’s a way for you to look more refreshed and rejuvenated – it will also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles! Nuceiva™ (known as Jeuveau™ in US) is an anti-aging injectable solution containing Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. Nicknamed ‘Newtox’, this miracle chemical has been approved by Health Canada over 20 years ago and is primarily used for cosmetic purposes.

Because both are neuromodulator injections, people often ask the difference between Nuceiva™ and Botox®. Nuceiva™ is distributed by Clarion Medical Technologies and Botox® is distributed by Allergan in Canada. A few points to remember is that Nuceiva™ is a quick treatment, with little to no downtime, and can even last longer for some people. If you want to know more about Nuceiva™ wrinkle treatment, we are happy to help!

Difference between Nuceiva™ vs. Botox®

There’s a new kid on the block – Nuceiva™. It’s the most recent and advanced anti-wrinkle treatment available for those trying to restore their youthful complexion. Many people have been using Botox® for years and they may seem hesitant about using Nuceiva™.

Nuceiva™ is marketed and used primarily for cosmetic treatment. Its entire focus is to combat the effects of facial aging, where Botox® is prescribed for aesthetic and non-aesthetic purposes. Nuceiva™ has little downtime and is incredibly quick to see results – as little as a few days for full effects. Our physicians use tiny needles to ensure that you will hardly feel anything at all.

If Nuceiva™ or Botox® is something you would like to try, our team at Ovo Medi Spa will help you answer any questions or concerns you may have.

How Does Nuceiva™ Injections Work?


Once your Nuceiva™ appointment has been set, we will go through your medical history before we get started. Only qualified physicians with appropriate expertise in injectables perform the procedure. Your facial structure, muscle movement, and degree of wrinkles will determine the dosage and area of injection. We will monitor your changes and progress through before and after photos.


After your Nuceiva™ wrinkle treatment, you may experience tenderness and mosquito-like bumps just like a flu shot which can last a few hours. Some people may start to notice results as soon as 2-3 days after the treatment, but it may take up to 14 days for the full effect to appear.


A typical treatment will require maintenance every 3-5 months after the initial injection for continued results. Even though the effects will start to wear off, the best thing about Nuceiva™ wrinkle treatment is the way it persists. Over time, you may require less injections as your muscles are trained to be more relaxed. If you stop getting Nuceiva™ treatment, the wrinkles will return slowly.


Nuceiva™ is an excellent treatment for both men and women. Men may need slightly more because they tend to have stronger facial muscles. Here are some things you should expect when going through Nuceiva™ wrinkle treatment:

  • Consultation with our professionals on the effects and risks of Nuceiva™
  • Temporary side effects include headaches or mild bruising
  • Tiny needles will provide as little discomfort as possible
  • There are few restrictions to activities – with minimal downtime, you can return to your normal activities as fast as possible

FAQs About Nuceiva™ Treatment

What Is Nuceiva Used For?

Nuceiva™ is a new anti-wrinkle treatment marketed strictly for use in a cosmetic sense. Nuceiva™ contains Botulinum Toxin Type A (Prabotulinumtoxin A) as the active substance. In small doses, the neurotoxin prevents muscle contraction by blocking the release of acetylcholine – a chemical that lets your muscles contract. It’s been making waves ever since Health Canada approved the use in August 2019 and is one of the newest neuromodulator in the market.

How many units are needed?

The number of units can vary for every individual, especially between men and women. People who are more active and have stronger muscles may need more units. Your physician injector will properly examine your facial structure and determine the appropriate dosage of Nuceiva™.

Is there downtime to treatment?

There are few restrictions to activities after you are done with your Nuceiva™ wrinkle treatment, you will only need to avoid excess heat and strenuous activities for one day. You can go back to work and resume your normal activities immediately. It is best to wait for at least a day before you attend a special event.

When should I consider Nuceiva

Nuceiva™ is an ideal treatment for anyone wanting to ease the look of moderate to severe facial lines. If you are starting to feel self-conscious or considering to have Nuceiva™ wrinkle treatment, here are some signs:

  • You are starting to see signs of wrinkles forming.
  • Wrinkles are starting to make your eyes look tired, angry, sad, or upset – even if you are not expressing any of these emotions.
  • Your facial expressions cause static wrinkles (wrinkles are present even after our facial muscles relax).
  • You are starting to look older than you actually want.

What should I avoid once Nuceiva treatment is done?

Treatment offers little downtime, but there are activities that you should be aware of after you finish with treatment. Stay in an upright position for at least 4 hours following an injection. Here is a list of activities that you should avoid once you are done with your Nuceiva™ procedure:

  • Avoid heavy pressure, massaging, or rubbing the treated area.
  • Avoid exercise or strenuous movements for the remainder of the treatment day.
  • Avoid hot environments (saunas, tanning, extra UV exposure)
  • Avoid doing other facial treatments for at least 2 weeks (microdermabrasion, facials, chemical peels, microneedling, skin care or laser treatments).

If you experience discomfort or tenderness, applying an ice pack or taking over-the-counter pain relievers may help.

What are the risks?

Like Botox®, the risks of Nuceiva™ are the same. Because it deals with a type of botulinum toxin, you will find similar risks associated. Here are some of the risk factors and risk groups:

  • Eyelid ptosis: Drooping of the eyelid due to underlying conditions.
  • Immunogenicity: Excessive (and too frequent) dosage may enhance the risk of developing specific antibodies that fight the neurotoxin (making it useless).
  • Distant spread of toxin.
  • Hypersensitivity.
  • Incorrect drug administration.
