New Wrinkle Eraser Hits The Market: Just Like Cousin Botox


Botox.

We all know how popular the cosmetic injectable is. Wrinkles and lines one day. And Poof---gone the next day, with the sting of a needle.

And now, we are welcoming Botox's new cousin----Xeomin to the war on aging.

Xeomin has been called the 'Botox alternative', and it's the new wrinkle eraser for 2012.

So, what's the difference?

Like Botox, Xeomin treats the 11 lines between the eyes, forehead wrinkles, and the crow's feet by the eyes. But unlike Botox, which can develop resistance over time, this new Botox alternative is LESS likely to do so.

This is still wrinkle-erasing by needle. So, OUCH, the minor discomfort is still present. And the prices are still similar at the moment, usually about $500-700 per session, although pricing is expected to fall because of the competition between Allergan, Medicis, and Merz Aesthetics--the maker of Xeomin.

Probably one of the biggest differences between the 2 injectables is this:

Xeomin has a longer shelf-life than Botox and does NOT require refrigeration like Botox. Great for the physician, but not much of a big deal for the customer.

The way we see it, Xeomin is another FDA-approved injectable, just like cousin Botox. It's wonderful to have a choice when it comes to beauty products, treatments and procedures out there.

In the meantime, we will wait and see how the public reacts to this other new wrinkle eraser, and see exactly how this injectable performs.

Its really great to learn about the new wrinkle eraser that hits the market just like cousin botox. I think Xeomin would really provide quality performance just like botox. I am excited to hear about this new alternative wrinkle eraser like botox.

I also am thrilled there are more BOTOX substitutes out there. It's soo good to have a choice when it comes to quality cosmetic fillers and stuff like that. Botox is an incredible injection but if we can invent an even superior BOTOX, well, I'm open to it.

If i might add, One of the common places that easily develops wrinkles is that area below the eyes. You can significantly reduce the risk of developing wrinkles in these areas by protecting it from the harmful rays of the sun. This can be done by investing on a good pair of sunglasses. You can find those that are equipped with UVA and UVB protectors.
