Botox(R) vs. Reloxin(R) -- the Wrinkle Titans Poised for Battle
Date:4/13/2009

>

At first glance, a cheaper, stronger, longer-lasting wrinkle relaxer seems like a steal-of-a-deal, but at least a portion of the cost savings of Reloxin(R) will likely evaporate in the form of processing time, as doctors and staff will need to, at least initially, downshift to a much lower gear, taking additional precautions to ensure proper mixing ratio, optimal patient safety and favorable results. Beyond the obvious, intangibles such as the higher skill-set suggested (a comprehensive understanding of internal facial musculature and physiology) and an elevated risk potential (using a stronger toxin with a different mixing ratio and slightly varied treatment response) are considerations for an eager cosmetic injector to factor in. Whether cost savings to the practice ultimately will find their way to the cosmetic patient will likely correspond most directly to an injector's comfort level with Reloxin(R) and their ability to integrate it seamlessly into their regular daily workflow.

Jeffrey Adelglass, M.D., F.A.C.S., a cosmetic physician and Medical Director of SKINTASTIC Medical and Surgical Rejuvenation Center of Plano, who is currently one of the largest purchasers/injectors of Botox in North Texas and the U.S., offers a sobering piece of advice to those who may soon hear about Reloxin(R) deals offered at their local hair-and-nail salon or strip-mall shopping center: "With injectable cosmetic treatments (as with many things in life), if you see an offer that seems too good to be true, do a little digging to find out why it's so inexpensive. Sometimes it really is a quality offer by an established medical practice with injections performed by experienced, qualified medically-licensed injectors; but a super-discounted cosmetic injectable price can also be reflective of exactly the opposite: an injector's lack of qualifications, training and experience, and in some cases--inferior (super-diluted) or even counterfeit products."
