Belotero and Xeomin

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

There are 2 new products on the block. Belotero is another hyalaronic acid filler and Xeomin is another version of Botox. If you read my previous posts, I tend to be a late adopter. However, these products are very similar to Restylane and Botox, respectively, but slightly less expensive. Therefore, I am passing the savings on to you, the patients. So far, so good. I flew through a bunch of Belotero in the pasr month, everyone is happy. Longevity remains to be seen, the jury is still out.

Hope everyone is enjoying the June gloom. I absolutely love the cooler, more overcast weather! Beating hot sun is not my idea of fun! Please note that during the first half of July, I will be out of the office quite a bit, so please plan accordingly.

Our new waiting room

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

Thanks to our loyal patients for putting up with our waiting room in Suite 570 for all these years. Here’s the new look! Also, I know some people loved the stained glass ceiling in Suite 520, some thought it was god awful. It is now gone because we needed better lighting and I had a patient who loved to have it, thankfully. I didn’t want it to go to waste.

Melanoma rates in children have risen. Melanoma deaths in male baby boomers is twice that of female baby boomers. An article of mine on sun and melanoma was recently cited in a new article in the June 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology entitled, “Melanoma Death Prevention.”

Recently I had a patient come in after 7 years. It has been that kind of year. Luckily for him, he came in. I found a melanoma in-situ on his back. His prognosis is excellent. I love my job!
