XeominWith the recent FDA approval of Xeomin (Merz), there are now 3 FDA approved neuromodulators (NM) available for the use of treating unwanted wrinkles in US patients.  Botox (Allergan) has established itself as the top dog thanks to being the first and only NM in the US for many years.  Botox has proven to be safe and effective over the years.  Dysport (Medicis) was the second NM available in the US.  It too is safe and clinically effective.

What’s the difference between the 3 NMs?  Not much.  They are all effective at eliminating wrinkles when used properly.  At many of our aesthetic meetings, world experts are promoting one or the other NM based more on the cost of the product than on the actual results of treatments.  Studies comparing one NM to another may be interpreted by some as somewhat biased, as the studies are usually supported by grants from one of the NM manufacturers.  The consensus among high volume physician users of NMs is that when used properly, all 3 are excellent products.  Patients will be able to choose for themselves which NM they prefer based upon their individual experience.

The new kid on the block, Xeomin is offering an introductory special where Merz gives patients a $50 debit card that can be used toward other or future treatments at the treating physician’s office.  At our office, we will be discounting Xeomin treatments another $50, so that our patients will save a total of $100 with their Xeomin treatments.  This offer will be from November 2011 through February 2012.
