Xeomin®, a Merz Aesthetics product, is being referred to as the "naked injectable" by physicians because it does not contain any additives or complex proteins. The benefit of this, according to Dr. Adam Stein, Director of the Viserage Med Spa in Raleigh and Stein Plastic Surgery, is that the body is less likely to have an adverse reaction to the treatment than with Botox®. Side effects and efficacy are expected to be similar to other botulinum toxin products.
"We are thrilled to have another highly effective botulinum toxin available to treat frown lines – which is still one of the most commonly treated areas here at VISERAGE," said Dr. Adam Stein. "By being selected to offer this cutting edge product to our clients as early as possible the Viserage Med Spa is once again at the forefront of the latest advancements in facial treatment. We expect that the availability of Xeomin® will offer even more safety assurance to patients opting for this type of an injectable treatment and ultimately create some friendly price competition among its competitors."
Xeomin® was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines, more commonly known as frown lines between the eyebrows, in adult patients. This approval was based on two clinical trials that found that Xeomin® significantly improved the appearance of glabellar lines 30 days following the first injection.
Xeomin® will be available in medical offices around the United States in the spring of 2012; however, Viserage Med Spa will be offering the treatment as early as November 2011. It is also approved for the improvement of glabellar lines in 14 countries in Europe under the brand name Bocouture.
