At his San Diego plastic surgery practice, Dr. Steve Laverson is now providing XEOMIN®, a skin tightening and anti-wrinkle treatment. XEOMIN®, developed by Merz Aesthetics, is an FDA-approved alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic and other wrinkle reduction treatments. Dr. Laverson says the cosmetic treatment can be a cost-effective solution that can provide patients with long lasting results in the reduction of glabellar lines or frown lines between the eyebrows.
Board-certified San Diego plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Laverson and his Feel Beautiful aesthetic enhancement practice are now one of the first medical professionals in the San Diego area to provide XEOMIN® for skin tightening and wrinkle treatment. Following the announcement of approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in July, Merz Aesthetics released the treatment for use as an alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic in the temporary reduction of glabellar or frown lines and the control of excessive underarm sweating. Dr. Laverson says he is excited to offer the treatment at his practice for patients seeking to enhance their aesthetic appearance through non-invasive procedures.
Approval of XEOMIN® from the FDA was based on results in two U.S. clinical trials during which it was shown to significantly improve the appearance of glabellar lines when compared to the placebo after 30 days of having received the injection. The treatment will be available nationwide to physicians in the spring of 2012, but is currently being offered at Dr. Laverson’s practice in San Diego.
Dr. Laverson says XEOMIN® offers a number of benefits to surgeons and patients over BOTOX® and other dermal injections. He says the new treatment requires no refrigeration or freezing until opened, is less expensive, and can offer longer-lasting results. Dr. Laverson also adds that XEOMIN® contains a lower protein load than BOTOX® or Dysport®, which can offer benefits to rare patients who have developed antibodies or may have an allergic response. He recommends consulting with an experienced, qualified plastic surgeon before undergoing any procedure.
Dr. Laverson’s practice has two locations in the San Diego area: the Encinitas Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Office, located at 11199 Sorrento Valley Road #202 San Diego, Ca 92121, and the Carlsbad Feel Beautiful Boutique, located at 2907 Carlsbad Boulevard in Carlsbad, CA. Both locations can be contacted at 858-295-4001
