BLOCK LINES WITH MYOBLOC
If your body has natural resistance to the botulinum toxin or you find it not strong enough to do the job, there is a larger dose called Myobloc, which is a botulinum toxin type B. The effects are a little more immediate and may last a little longer.
BETTER THAN BOTOX
A toxin called Xeomin, which works in the same way as Botox, is thought to have less chance of causing an allergic reaction because it doesn’t contain the lab-produced foreign protein cells that are used as a carrier – so keep an eye open for this new ‘Botox’.

A couple of more serious notes: Make sure your last will and testament is up to date. (Or better yet, establish a living trust. See below). Otherwise, your loved ones will need to go through probate to settle your estate if proper preparations have not been made and you do not want that. Why? Lawyers, Uncle Sam, the state you live in. They will all take their piece of your pie before your loved ones get one dollar, if there is any left afer the others get through. Estate planning can give you control over who gets what, assuring that most of what you want to happen, will. The last thing any of us would want is to have relatives squabbling over the assets and, sadly, many times that is exactly what happens without a plan. There is an upside to this, though. Even though you won’t be around to revel in it, you have the chance to have the last laugh, and when appropriate, get even.
