Because I love all of you that read The Style Gathering I am sharing some pretty goofy pictures of myself to show you what a difference Xeomin makes. There was a lot of laughter taking place in making these pics. Clearly I have no shame.
Whenever I have a trip planned or a reunion of old friends I always tell myself I am going to lose five pounds and look my dead level best. Last weekend was my big sorority reunion and guess what? I didn’t lose 5 pounds. Don’t get me wrong, I am way thinner now than I was during my four+ years in Tuscaloosa. I mean if weight gain in college was graded I graduated magna cum laude, but still, the Monday before the weekend arrived and my scales and I were at odds. However, I had my spray tan appointment booked, which is a guaranteed 5-10 pound weight loss, and I was going to see the dermatologist that day so he could work his little Magic Eraser magic on my forehead, brow and eyes.
I talk a lot about my bestie in Atlanta who is my “go to girl” for all things aesthetic. She has been telling me about a new “Botox” called Xeomin and how its effects are seen in two to three days, but the best part is that it is less expensive than its big brother. Since the clock was ticking on my countdown to looking good I knew I didn’t have a moment to spare. I asked my dermatologist, Dr. Corey Hartman, for Xeomin and he was happy to oblige. I love Dr. Hartman because he really spends time with me and knows what my desired end result is. If your doctor is treating your forehead with a cookie cutter it is time to move on. God has packed arched eyebrows in my suitcase so I don’t need Xeomin to achieve that for me. I also like to have some movement in my forehead and Dr. Hartman is in tune with that. No matter if you want to look like a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader (I mean on some level I do) or an East Coast Socialite, let your doctor know. Physicians are really smart, but mind readers they are not.
The pictures above show you how fast Xeomin works to smooth out lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, my biggest problem area. I’ve used Botox so I was truly amazed that Xeomin worked within two days for me. The bottom line is that I was a pharmaceutical rep for many years. I understand branding. I have sold against Prozac, Zithromax and Lipitor and I often lost the battle to the more established brand. I’m just saying you might want to widen your scope and give another product a chance to take a few years off the face. For me Xeomin works, it works fast, it is less expensive and according to all of the literature, it has staying power.
