Xeomin was recently approved for in the United States, making it the latest botulinum toxin to achieve FDA approval. This product may be the one that drives pricing to a more favorable position for patients, making botulinum toxin injections much more accessible.
Xeomin has been used in Germany since 2008. It is essentially the same product as Botox, just without the additives. This makes the product extremely easy to use for patients and physicians. The theoretic advantage of Xeomin is that with less additives, there is less likelihood of developing antibody formation with continued use.
Botox is an excellent product. However, it is good news for the consumer when more botulinum toxins are approved to help drive prices down and make these products available.
Dr. Shah offers Xeomin treatments in his Chicago office.

Peel and Reveal: Chemical Peels Without The Downtime
Frequently Asked Questions About Peels
Can I have a peel if I have darker skin? There are risks with any procedure, including chemical peels. We most often recommend individual assessment to determine the intended goals and start with a lower grade strength to determine how your skin will respond.
Do peels cost a lot of money? Most peels are not expensive in price.
Will I see results with one chemical peel? Most patients see immediate textural changes to their skin. Longer lasting changes are seen with increased strength of chemical peel and frequency.
What is my downtime for a chemical peel? Each patient has an individual recovery period. Many patients with lighter peels can return to work that same day. Medium strength chemical peels may require longer periods of recovery at the extra benefit of more change.
How do peels work? Peels work by removing the superficial layers of the skin. When the skin repairs itself, the skin can feel tighter and rejuvenated due to the removal of superficial layers of skin as well as the introduction of new collagen in the skin.
Who administers a chemical peel? Most peels in Dr. Shah's office are administered by an aesthetician. Stronger peels are performed by Dr. Shah.
