Forehead lines can appear very early in life in some individuals ie early 20s. Appearance of these lines can be delayed significantly by Botox and even early static lines can vanish with treatment. More advanced lines will soften and therefore still give a healthier appearance to the skin. There are careful considerations to make with forehead treatments. Dr Patel will take plenty of time to discuss these during your consultation. He will also discuss other potential treatment options with you.

BTX-A (Anti Wrinkle Injections)
Botulinum Toxin-A (e.g. Botox or Bocouture/Xeomin) remains the number one anti-ageing treatment, primarily used for PREVENTION & TREATMENT of lines & wrinkles. We aim to give you a natural result; we do not support the frozen look. We also use this for other concerns eg armpit sweating, teeth grinding/TMJ pain and migraine. A safe and effective product used by millions of patients. In our experience, “Botox” is still very misunderstood, even amongst patients who have been having it for some years. We often hear in consultation that “no-one has ever told me that when I have had Botox before!” Let us introduce you to a truly expert approach to this popular treatment.
Botulinum Toxin A is available in a number of different brands. We offer two of the leading brands Botox and Bocouture, at the same price. A number of high quality, double-blind, randomised, controlled, split-face trials have shown that effectiveness and duration of effect are equal with these 2 brands. However, with a heavy emphasis on practising evidence-based medicine, our strong belief is that Bocouture (also known as Xeomin) is now the Gold Standard product to use. The main reason is that it is the only brand which does NOT contain complexing proteins. These proteins can be responsible for the immune system mounting a response that produces antibodies, rendering the treatment ineffective. Bocouture and Xeomin are made by Merz Pharma and identical products. Xeomin was the original brand name used since 2008. When it gained its cosmetic licence in 2010, it was launched under the brand name of Bocouture. In the USA, the brand name Xeomin tends to be heard of more but as stated, the products are absolutely identical and our favoured choice for our patients.
Benefits of Bocouture:
- Free of complexing proteins
- Stored at room temperature so no need for environmentally UNFRIENDLY packaging – eg: polystyrene and ice packs
- Free of human-derived products
- Licensed for use in all 3 areas of the upper face
