XEOMIN®: The Naked BOTOX®

XEOMIN is a relatively new option similar to Dysport® and BOTOX for Los Angeles patients. But XEOMIN boasts one key difference, which gives it its provocative nickname: “naked BOTOX.”

BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport contain additives and proteins that can limit the effectiveness of treatments for some people. XEOMIN, meanwhile, is free of complex proteins. It delivers a simplified form of the active ingredient in BOTOX and Dysport.

Differences aside, XEOMIN treats wrinkles in the same way as BOTOX and Dysport, inhibiting muscle activity and relaxing the facial muscles to reduce deep wrinkles.

XEOMIN is ideal for treating creases or wrinkles in the forehead, brows and corners of the eyes that result from years of contracting facial muscles. A noticeable reduction in wrinkles is apparent after only 1 treatment. Because XEOMIN does not contain the added proteins, the results can potentially last longer than BOTOX or Dysport.

As with BOTOX and Dysport, no recuperation time is required following your treatment with XEOMIN.

How do you choose which one is best for you? Only a personal analysis of each individual’s cosmetic needs can determine which treatment will be most effective. By offering all 3 of these remarkable wrinkle treatments, we’ve got you covered.

Gummy Bears: Should You Switch?

Now that the new form-stable silicone gel breast implants are available for breast augmentation in Beverly Hills, many women are wondering if they should switch out their implants.

The new implants are technically called high-strength, cohesive, form-stable or form-retention implants, but I coined the nickname “gummy bear” implants because of their consistency. Like gummy bears, they can be squeezed, pulled and even cut, and they will retain their form. Soft and pliable, yet strong and durable, these gummy bear implants eliminate any risk of leakage. They are a great addition to the other breast implant options we offer.

Should they stay or should they go?

So, should you replace your current implants with the new gummy bears? It depends. The good news is that unless a complication presents itself, you don’t have to replace your current implants. If your implants are not causing any problems, you may want to leave them be. However, if you are not satisfied with the size, shape or feel of your current implants, replacing them with gummy bears may be something to consider.
