Is a natural purified protein produced by Clostidium botulinum bacterium-b…x.
Used for Anti-Wrinkle Injections (b…x) aesthetic treatments. B…x is one of the most popular treatments in the UK. When he is applied to the muscle, usually face muscles, he disables movement of the muscle for some period of time. In this way, wrinkles are reduced for that period of time. Other great treatment options are for people affected by migraines or by to treat hyperhidrosis (extensive sweating).
The differences between the medicines are related to the manufacturing process and purification process. What that means is the different brands, whilst having the same active component, have different amounts of the non-active proteins mixed in.
The amount of the additional proteins can be measured in terms of the weight of a complex, the complex being the active molecule and its associated proteins.
B…X the complex weighs 900 kD (kD stands for kilodalton, which is a measure of weight used for molecules) Anti-Wrinkle Injections b…x Bocouture weighs in at 150 kD, this is the weight of the active component itself meaning that the Bocouture preparation has no additional complexing proteins in the mix, containing only the active compound.
The other difference other than the amount of actual protein, or biological material in the vial is the excipients. These are other things added to the vial to help maintain the stability of the medicine before it is reconstituted and injected.
has added Human Albumin and Sodium Chloride and BOCOUTURE contain Human Albumin and Sucrose.
None of the excipients have any medical or biological activity.
So there are the differences, what about the similarities? There have been numerous studies performed to assess the differences between the different preparations, and there is the wealth of anecdotal evidence collected as expert opinion from doctors who have performed thousands of treatments. The duration of effect has been studied, the side effect profile, the spread, the diffusion, patient and practitioner satisfaction. So far no significant reproducible difference in the clinical effect between all three preparations has been identified.
Final Summary Anti-Wrinkle Injections!
For you as the patient, there is no significant clinical difference between the formulations, they are all good! At our clinic we have experience with both formulations and currently use mainly BOCOUTURE as the fact it has less protein means it is theoretically less likely to cause a reaction (unlikely and uncommon with all preparations), and it is more affordable too!*
