Michelle Obama on Botox

The First Lady of the United States, who celebrated turning 50 this weekend, has reportedly said she does not rule out Botox to preserve her looks.

She has been quoted as saying that she would never say never to the helping hand at anti-ageing. In the same week ... Read more

Botox Ads Banned

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.

Botox for Teens

Unethical aestheticians, salon owners, and doctors have been revealed in a breaking news story about medical professionals to be treating under-18's with Botox. At clinics all over the U.K. doctors have been uncovered as offering £170 treatments to children. Although the treatment is 100% safe and increasingly common amongst adults, general unspoken guidelines within the industry suggest patients under 30 probably don't need an anti-ageing needle. Dr Dan Poulter, Health Minister, has said, "Treating under-18's with Botox for purely cosmetic reasons is completely ... Read more

Dr Bowler Writes for The Huffington Post

Dr Patrick Bowler has written for The Huffington Post today, asking why British media won’t talk about… erm, the vagina.

Friends who Botox

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 ... Read more

Botox Restrictions and Rejections

Reports today suggest that “cosmetic cowboys” will continue to tarnish the reputation of the cosmetic treatment industry as the Government allegedly plans to quietly reject the recommendations set out in the Keogh review. The Keogh review recommended that there be a minimum standard for practitioners, as well as restrictions on “limited time only” discounts and advertising. A key suggestion by the report recommended the need for a compulsory register of anyone administering cosmetic treatments, including Botox, Dermal fillers and laser hair removal. If government ...

Botox to Treat Extreme Arousal

Botox has many uses, not least for anti-ageing and skin smoothing. From hip conditions to over-active bladders, Botulinum Toxin lands news headlines week after week as doctors continue to innovate with the substance. The latest story is one of extreme arousal. Persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) is a distressing sexual dysfunction that can cause uncontrollable arousal lasting for days at a time.
