BTX-A (Anti Wrinkle Injections)
Botulinum Toxin-A (e.g. Botox or Bocouture) 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 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.
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
