How does Bocouture differ from Botox?
Bocouture has no additional non-active proteins combined with the active molecule. Another ingredient added to the medicine to stabilise it is Sucrose whereas Botox uses Sodium Chloride. The similarities between Botox and Bocouture have been studied extensively with no discernable difference found and both products record similar patient and doctor satisfaction. Bocouture has the least proteins so is more ‘pure’ and least likely to cause a reaction – although this is an unlikely outcome for any of the preparations.
What does a Bocouture injection entail?
First, we will discuss what you’re hoping to achieve and then cover any medical conditions or specific medications that would preclude you from undergoing a botulinum toxin treatment. If you’re happy to proceed at this time, the treatment area will be prepared with an anaesthetic wipe and then we will use a very fine needle to deliver Bocouture into the dermis.
Is there any downtime after a Bocouture treatment?
There may be a small amount of redness and bruising at the injection site but this should disappear within a day or two. In fact, most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after their treatment.
What results can I expect from a Bocouture treatment?
Patients will usually start to see a visible difference to the appearance of dynamic wrinkles within the first week. Results can then last for up to nine months in some patients when you will notice that more movement returns to the treatment area.
When can I have an Bocouture top-up?
Once full movement has returned to the treatment area, which can be between three and six months, and even up to nine months in some patients, it is perfectly safe to have a repeat treatment.
Bocouture is another botulinum toxin product that can be used to treat dynamic wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Just as with Botox, this wrinkle relaxing injectable contains active Botulinum Toxin Type A, produced from the bacteria clostridium botulinum and there are just slight differences in how the product is manufactured and the amount of non-active ingredients are added to the formulation.
