He Wrote The Textbook on Botox
If you wanted to learn a bit about Botox online, you might try a search in Google, then go on Wikipedia and look for articles on Botox. But why not just ask the real expert; the guy who wrote the textbook on Botox treatment?
Dr. Benedetto, a board-certified cosmetic dermatological surgeon, has been performing Botox treatment in Philadelphia, PA since 1978 when he opened his first medical practice. Through his invaluable experience, he decided to share his acquired knowledge by writing a textbook for other practicing medical professionals on how to inject Botox. Now in it’s 2nd edition, “The Botox Book” is the most well-known book on Botulinum Toxin in clinical dermatology.
Covering a large practicum of his Philadelphia, PA Botox treatment principles and practices, Dr. Benedetto eludes to a new type of Botulinum Toxin used in Germany that might soon be giving Botox “a run for its money.” This new member on the market, which might soon be offered in conjunction or as an alternative to standard Botox treatment in Philadelphia, PA is called Xeomin.
The major difference between Xeomin and Botox, says Dr. Benedetto is that Xeomin does not include an outer coating of protein. The nickname for Xeomin is a “naked protein,” because it doesn’t have the outer shell for added protection, like Botox. When Xeomin is injected, it should begin it’s effects immediately. Botox, on the other hand, when injected, has an outer shell that needs to be broken down before it reaches the muscles.
Studies have shown, however, that even within a few microseconds after Botox has been injected, it loses it’s protective coating, anyway. Scientists in this particular company started questioning why they should even have to manufacture a Botulinum Toxin with these protective, complex proteins. So they came up with the idea of this naked, non-complex, unprotected protein called Xeomin that works “just as well as our regular Botox treatment in Philadelphia, PA,” says Benedetto.
Although they’re different, Xeomin and Botox share a similar botulinum toxin type, being type A. Type A is the most widely-used, and considered to be less intrusive and artificial than other types of plastic surgery. The 7 neurotoxic types of botulinum toxin, types A, B, C1, D, E, F, and G have different forms and functions. Type-A works is used specifically in cosmetic practices to prevent the development of wrinkles by paralyzing facial muscles.
