Dr. Sadick Highlights Xeomin on The Doctors TV Show
Dr. Sadick joined Dr. Drew Ordon on a recent episode of ABC’s “The Doctors” to tout the benefits of Xeomin, the latest botulinum toxin to receive FDA approval.
Merz’s Xeomin offers patients a third choice — in addition to Botox® and Dysport® — for those wanting botulinum toxin injections. Xeomin works in the same way as the other two do, with a few differences.
Dr. Sadick explains that the major difference is in the manufacturing process. All proteins are removed from Xeomin, so potentially there could be less incidence of adverse events that could occur with this toxin, according to Dr. Sadick.
Dr. Sadick reports that his patients are happy with Xeomin. “The results, in my hands at least, show that patients are extremely happy and it gives you very, very natural results and like other toxins, it a very low side effect profile.”
Dr. Sadick said that about 3 million toxin treatments are performed each year in the United States.
Does Xeomin last as long as Botox?
Xeomin lasts about the same amount of time as Botox and Dysport, which is usually between 12 to 16 weeks. Dr. Sadick says that most of his patients only come in about once or twice a year for botulinum toxin treatments.
When will you see results?
Xeomin, Botox and Dysport are not like dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, and results are not seen immediately. Botulinum toxins take about two to three days to set in. The maximum effect is seen in about five to seven days.
Xeomin is now available at Sadick Dermatology in New York City. For those who don’t like needles, try Sadick Dermatology’s Park Avenue Prescription Starter Kit.
