In the realm of BOTOX battles, there is still no clear winner. Merz Aesthetics, a division of Merz North America, recently announced positive results from a clinical trial designed to evaluate the efficacy of Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) in the treatment of glabellar lines, when compared to BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA).

News of the sudden death of beloved dermatologist Fredric (Fred to his friends) Sheldon Brandt on April 5, 2015 spread like wildfire among dermatologists and plastic surgeons around the world. It was a big shock to all of us who knew him, and a great loss to the field. Fred was a leading pioneer in injectable fillers and BOTOX®, having treated a crowd of well-heeled women and men who were determined to stay youthful for as long as possible. Dubbed “The Baron of Botox” by W Magazine, he has forever changed the field of dermatology and cosmetic medicine. He left his footprint on the way we look at facial aging in myriad ways, and he did it all with passion and a sense of humor.
Some of my favorite things are….PINK. It all started in 1997 when I founded my company, Wendy Lewis & Co Ltd, and chose a pink logo and letterhead.

A fresh new crop of sunscreens are on our radar for the season, but what if your medicine cabinet is still filled with last year’s buys? Check the labels for expiration dates. Most sunscreens have a shelf life of about one year, and after that, they will lose their potency. And why do you have those old leftover products laying around anyway? Could it be that you haven’t been using them consistently or using enough of the product to get adequate protection? You’re not alone. Most of us fall short when it comes to using the right amount of sunscreen, even if we have chosen the right sunscreen to start with.
