Botox, Xeomin, Dysport used for more than just fine lines.

Posted by Dr. Perry in Fillers and Botox

Sacramento, California.  Botox Dysport and now Xeomin are chemoneuromodulating proteins used commonly in plastic surgery practices to enhance the appearance.  A recent study from Chicago looked at the often sited but undocumented claim that Botox improves self-esteem and quality of life. This double blinded study published by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery 2010;36:2088-2097 revealed that both self – esteem and quality of life was improved for those using Botox and even speculated that productivity may be improved as well.  The results revealed improvements in self rated mood, intellect, self worth, body satisfaction, appearance, attractiveness, sense of well being; performance related self esteem following Botox injections for up to six months.

Xeomin (Incobotulinumtoxin A) is the newest neurotoxin that is used to modulate the neuromuscular response.  Developed from the same strain of Clostridium Botulium as Botox, its dosing strength is similar.   Because it is a pure chemoneuromodulator unlike Botox it does not require frozen storage.  It is also being offered at lower price which maybe significant for some, especially when larger doses are required.  We are excited to offer this new product from Merz Pharmaceuticals which also offers Radiesse for your convenience at Chrysalis Cosmetics.
