XEOMIN Now Available at Arizona Plastic Surgery Practice

At his center for plastic surgery in Phoenix, Dr. Steven Turkeltaub is now providing a recently released alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic called XEOMIN® for wrinkle reduction. He states that this new product offers an effective alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic in helping patients reduce fine lines and enhance the vibrancy and youth of their skin and does so at a more affordable price.

Dr. Steven Turkeltaub, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Phoenix, AZ, has announced that he will be offering XEOMIN® as an option to BOTOX® Cosmetic for the treatment of certain facial wrinkles. Though it has been used in many other countries worldwide since 2005, it was in July of this year that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the usage of XEOMIN® in the United States as a treatment for the reduction of glabellar (frown) lines. Dr. Turkeltaub says that he is excited about the new product, which can serve as an effective and more affordable alternative for BOTOX in Phoenix. He also states that treatment with this product can offer patients a noticeable reduction of facial lines and creases translating into a softer, more rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

Dr. Turkeltaub says the benefits available to patients seeking wrinkle reduction from XEOMIN in Arizona are very similar to those associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, but with a more affordable price tag. XEOMIN® also requires no freezing or refrigeration until opened which reduces costs as well as the risks for unintended or unidentified impairment of viability.

Dr. Turkeltaub is one of a very limited number of physicians in the Phoenix metropolitan area selected by Merz, the manufacturer of Xeomin®, to offer this product at present. XEOMIN® will officially be available nationwide to physicians in the spring of 2012.

Providing the latest advancements in plastic surgery in Arizona, Dr. Turkeltaub says he hopes that XEOMIN® is just one of numerous additional innovations in cosmetic enhancements and facial rejuvenation that will ultimately become effective realities. As with any medical procedure, Dr. Turkeltaub also says he recommends consulting with an experienced and qualified board certified plastic surgeon before undergoing any treatment.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
