Is A New Neurotoxin Coming Soon?

EVOSYAL to begin clinical trials.

Evolus, a division of ALPHAEON has put in a new neurotoxin called EVOSYAL for study with the FDA. This is a neurotoxin (like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin that are currently available). However, this new neurotoxin has the potential to last longer, should its FDA trial prove its safety and efficacy. The clinical study is just beginning and will most likely take a few years to complete. However, a new, longer-lasting neurotoxin could be available in years to come!


What Is Resveratrol and How Does It Work?

Resveratrol is an antioxidant that most famous for being in red wine. However, it can also be applied topically in skincare products and aids in treatment of skin aging. The most important thing about Resveratrol in terms of skincare products is that the ingredient must be stabilized properly. If not, it simply doesn't work, or worse, could actually harm the skin. Many "cheaper" versions of skincare products, or products people try to make at home, simply don't have proper stabilization of ingredients. This means, the product may work once or twice, but as the bottle is being used, the efficacy is going down dramatically. That's why expensive products are expensive - there are reasons to stabilize ingredients - efficacy and safety!

Black and Gray Market Injectables

Botox, hyaluronic acid, fillers from overseas, and more - black and gray market injectables.

I'm often asked by patients how they can see specials for injectors offering Botox for $3/unit or a syringe of Restylane for $200. The answer is black and gray market injectables. Black market injectables would be those that are compounded by illegal pharmacies or companies that are selling illegal copies of fillers or Botox. It happens a lot. We get emails and faxes all the time from companies who offer amazing deals on injectables. But they aren't legitimate and they are fraud.




Compound Controversy

Many of my patients use compounded medicines, and I get many compounded medicines for use within my office (numbing cream!). Restricting compounded pharmacies will inhibit many patients from necessary drugs, and even inhibit some treatments I offer, possibly. Please help protect your right to personalized medicine and compounding.

Beware Of Natural Cosmetics

Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes dermatology, Las Vegas stated today that consumers should beware that natural cosmetics may not be natural at all

A nationally renowned dermatologist, Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology warned consumers today that so called "natural" products may not be any more natural than others on the market. Green packaging, suspect ingredients and other marketing tools are used to lure the customer into believing that the product is superior quality.

"The good news is that consumers can protect themselves by learning to read cosmetic labels and choosing which types of products are right for them," said Dr. F. Victor Rueckl, dermatologist located in Las Vegas, Nevada today.
