Xeomin. In Your Face.

20 Dec
Allergan, the company that makes Botox Cosmetic, has lost it’s patent. This means companies will come out with competing products. Ladies, be excited.


First and foremost, I’d like to say… who named this product? (I would like to make a side note here… I will make a LOT of immature jokes in this post… sorry… but it’s too funny not to!)

Xeomin. Rhymes with… exactly. You can begin chuckling now. The girls at Dr. Russo’s (slang: JAR- Joseph A. Russo) and I have been in stitches over the name. However, it is a really good product! I had Xeomin injections about a month ago. And I have to say, I was very pleased with the results. It looks exactly like Botox, and perhaps worked a tiny bit faster. I love Xeomin in my face! (laughter).

As an injector, I started using this product about 3 weeks ago. It is reconstituted (or activated) exactly the same way Botox Cosmetic is. I injected Alexis Robertson of Image Skin Care with this product. Her opinion was similar to mine, it looks the same, it was slightly cheaper, and it started working maybe a day earlier than Botox.

Merz (the company that makes Radiesse- which I LOVE) is kicking off the introduction to this product with a $50 rebate as well. The nice thing about this rebate: It doesn’t require a degree in Rocket Science to get your money back (when Allergan does rebates it’s a nightmare!).


While I personally have never injected Dysport, or had it used on myself, I’ve had a lot of feedback from other women. There has been in increase in eyelid drooping from this product. It is in my OPINION that the reason for this is because the product is diluted (reconstituted) differently than Botox and because MORE saline (salt water) is added to the product in order to inject, the saline is spreading further through the muscle. I have been told by other injectors that it requires twice as much Dysport as Botox per injection. Women who are used to Botox are not a fan of Dysport.

Cosmetic Medicine is a new and quickly growing field. In fact, the growth of Cosmetic Medicine, since introduced, has grown faster than that of the Porn Industry. That’s right. Women like to look young more than men like sex! Crazy Statistic!

With Allergan loosing it’s patent, there are many new products on the horizon. So I’m sure there will be plenty more posts to come!

    I’m having some technical difficulties with this post! Technically, I left my computer at my office on the North Shore. And computers are Difficult for me. I’m a Nurse. Not a techie!
