No one enjoys having injections, so a new form of Botox that could last longer is good news. Dr. Joseph A. Racanelli is one of the first physicians in New York and New Jersey to offer Xeomin, the latest addition to the botulinum toxin family.
Nicknamed ‘naked Botox’ due to its purity, Xeomin received approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2011 for use on frown lines. Containing pure 150kD neurotoxin, Xeomin does not include bacterial proteins. These can provoke an immune reaction which stimulates the production of antibodies that work to neutralize the effects of Botox and reduce its duration. The regular use of Xeomin could see that deep 11 between your eyebrows disappear for longer.
Although Xeomin has only recently become available for cosmetic treatments it has been used for some while to treat cervical dystonia, which causes neck pain, and blepharospasm, which causes blinking and spasms. More than 84,000 people have been treated using Xeomin worldwide and it is now approved in 20 countries. Two clinical trials of Xeomin for cosmetic use involving 16 sites and 547 patients have shown significant improvement after 30 days.
However well-tested a product or procedure is, it is still important to choose a physician you can trust. Dr. Joseph A. Racanelli is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon with offices in New York City, Brooklyn and New Jersey. Dr. Racanelli is known throughout New York and New Jersey for his expertise with injectable fillers and toxins. Added to his extensive experience is his belief in listening to what patients are hoping to achieve and tailoring procedures to their needs. This means you can rely on his judgement and expertise in cosmetic surgery whether you are interested in breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or liposuction, or want a reliable opinion about the latest products and methods.
Consult Dr. Racanelli about Xeomin and your frowns could soon be turned to smiles.
