Yet another Botox competitor coming: Xeomin

An article this week on Modern Medicine’s website had a rundown of Botox’s upcoming competitors. It had two that have been mentioned repeatedly over the last few months: Dysport and PurTox not far behind, but it also threw in Xeomin, which is made by a company called Merz.

Merz is a well-respected German company. They sell other dermatology products in the US and will be well-received when they come to the Botox market in this country… Xeomin is already available in Europe.

More Doctors Need to Learn to Spot Skin Cancers

Resident physicians should be taught to screen for suspicious lesions, researchers say

MONDAY, Oct. 19 (HealthDay News) — Too few resident physicians have been trained in skin cancer examinations or watched or practiced the procedure, U.S. researchers report.

In a survey of 342 resident physicians in family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and internal medicine, researchers collected information on the participants’ training and experience with skin cancer exams as well as their level of skill in performing the exams.

"Clinical training for the skin cancer examination during residency was infrequent," wrote Dr. Emily Wise, of the Boston University School of Medicine, and colleagues. "During residency, 75.8 percent were never trained in the skin cancer examination, 55.3 percent never observed a skin cancer examination and 57.4 percent never practiced the examination. Only 15.9 percent of residents reported being skilled in the skin cancer examination."

Do you have unsightly leg veins that prevent you from wearing a skirt? Too hot to wear pants, but embarrassed to wear shorts? Do you have achy, throbbing, swollen and cramping legs? Do you have leg ulcers? You may have undiagnosed varicose vein. An estimated 25 million people in the United States suffer from varicose veins. Today, thanks to modern technology, there is an alternative treatment option to traditional surgical vein stripping.

Kahului Maui Dermatologist Mr. Micki Ly reports that she and her clients have embraced this exciting and effective new treatment that includes stat-of-the-art closure technology—and the results are superior. The patented technology uses a very small catheter and radio frequency energy to close down the ugly vein with only a small nick in the skin on the leg under local anesthesia. Clients enjoy quick and effortless relief of their varicose vein symptoms, without the associated drawbacks of vein stripping (an invasive surgical procedure) general anesthesia, post-operative pain, bruising and prolonged recovery. For self-assessment information about this service, visit or call Dr Ly’s office at (808) 877-6526 or a consultation.
