It seems every week there’s a story in the press about a new medical use for botox, this week stroke patients are the ones seeing benefits.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence have licensed the muscle-freezing drug for the treatment of limb problems, after a trial with 120 patients who had post-stroke ankle injuries. By having botox in the affected area, it was found that sufferers were able to regain control and movement.
Strokes affect over 150,000 people in the U.K., ...
Reports today suggest that Premiership footballer Wayne Rooney has undergone botox injections to smooth out his forehead.
In a recent television interview, Rooney’s brow appeared noticeably wrinkle-free, an indicator of the anti-ageing treatment. His spokesperson denied the claims.
If he has been treated, then the news is unsurprising to us at Courthouse Clinics. Since 2011 we’ve seen an incredible 216% increase in the number of male patients who’ve had botox, with men now making up over 6% of all botox treatments. Botox use ...
Australia’s 'The Biggest Loser' star Michelle Bridges has said in an interview that she is not against botox, saying that if anybody feels like they need help looking as young as they feel then it’s simply an addition to a beauty routine.
The author and trainer stopped short of saying she uses botox herself though, and cites her biggest secret to a fresh face as being sleep. “I sleep like a bear and will take it anywhere I can get it as ...
Dr Leah Totton has gone on record to say that she will probably never have botox or plastic surgery, it is reported today.
The Apprentice winner recently launched her inaugural cosmetic treatment clinic, the self-named Dr Leah, with a £250,000 cash injection from her mentor Lord Alan Sugar.
At only 26 years old, Dr Totton has little Botox experience herself, being relatively newly qualified within the field. A former British Association of Aesthetic Medicine (BAAPS) chairman suggested that her business is like “putting ...
Leah Totton, Lord Sugar’s Apprentice darling, has launched her first Botox clinic today.
After winning the BBC1 series, Totton saw a £250,000 investment into her business plan for Dr Leah, a hub for facials, skin peels and botox.
With the first branch in Moorgate, London, opened today, Dr Leah had Apprentice aide Karen Brady by her side as she pledged to abide by the strict medical rules of the industry, helping us all to uphold the high standard non-surgical procedures should have.
That is, ...
The Advertising Standards Agency has banned botox adverts from two leading aesthetic companies.
Dermaskin and HB Health of Knightsbridge have both been penalized for online ads that violate ASA regulation. The action comes after The Independent Healthcare Advisory Service filed complaints against some of the claims both websites featured.
Four years ago a crackdown was launched on misleading adverts, spearheaded by Liberal Democrat MP Jo Swinson. Because Botox is only available to doctor’s on prescription it is not allowed to be marketed promotionally. ...
Dr Patrick Bowler has written for The Huffington Post today, asking why British media won’t talk about… erm, the vagina.
On the back of Courthouse Clinics’ innovative new vaginal rejuvenation treatment FemiLift, Dr Bowler reflects on our reticence to discuss post-birth vaginal issues such as reduced sexual pleasure and stress urinary incontinence.
He writes: “For weeks we've called journalists and emailed editors to tell them about FemiLift. With all of our other innovations beauty editors frequently jump at the chance to inform their ...
Reports today suggest that up to one in eight people who’ve experience a non-surgical cosmetic treatment have had the procedure performed by an untrained amateur such as a friend.
The government polled 2,000 people, concluding that 13% of people who have had botox, dermal fillers, or face peels have let an unqualified acquaintance wield a needle to their face. Even more surprisingly, one in 20 have also treated themselves.
This year’s Keogh Report, issued from Prof Sir Bruce Keogh, the most senior doctor ...
"You couldn't make it up!"
We recently received this incredible testimony from a very happy patient indeed. She's asked to remain anonymous so as not to reveal her beauty secrets to all the land, but it was too good a story *not* to share:
I had a botox treatment at your Maidenhead branch on Thursday September 26th, from Dr Robertson.
The next day I flew to Spain for 4 days of partying with my best friend. Lots of good wine and dancing! I returned ...
