Each package of Bocouture 50U is supplied with a vial pre-filled with 50 units of botulinum toxin type A. The toxin exists as white powder that must be reconstituted with 1.25ml of preservative-free sodium chloride 9mg/ml (0.9%) solution for injection.
This prescription-only muscle-relaxing medicine is created by Merz Aesthetics to solely provide aesthetic improvements for patients who are suffering from moderate to severe facial lines like glabellar lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. It is purified to be free from complexing proteins and hence, reduces the risk of antibody formation. Most other brands contain bacterial protein which may induce the immune system to generate antibodies and diminish the intended toxin activity. So, Bocouture 50U is able to efficiently block nerve impulses and temporarily paralyze muscles to erase the appearance of wrinkles during facial expressions.
This muscle relaxant is composed of 50 units of Botulinum toxin type A. It is derived from fermentation of Hall strain of Clostridium botulinum bacteria. The excipients in this medicine are human albumin and sucrose.
Botulinum toxin type A works by temporarily blocking the transmission of nerve impulses between the muscles and brain. As a result, treated muscles do not contract and wrinkles appear smooth even when facial expressions occur.
The safety and efficacy of Bocouture 50U depends largely on the careful preparation and administration of solution. Just like any other medical procedure, you must first review your patients’ medical history to ensure suitability. Facial assessment is also important to determine the areas of concern and degree of correction needed. Before administering, you must reconstitute the toxin powder with 1.25ml of preservative-free sodium chloride 9mg/ml (0.9%) solution for injection. The resulting homogenous solution should be colorless, clear and free from suspended particles. It also has a concentration of 40 units/ml. Once ready, administer the muscle-relaxing solution according to the instructions on manual. The injection technique and dosage varies according to different regions. Discard remaining solution and used medical appliances responsibly. Usually, one session is enough to correct facial creases.
One treatment session can be completed within 30 minutes depending on degree of correction needed.
Bocouture 50U is designed specifically to correct moderate to severe facial lines.
Some common facial wrinkles that respond well to this product include glabellar frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet.
The desirable effects of Bocouture 50U can last for about three to four months which makes it a temporary solution to facial lines. Patients can get more injections once the effects wear off. That being said, the duration of effects fluctuates among patients based on their age, severity of skin condition and lifestyle behaviors.
Bocouture 50U is made of pure Botulinum toxin type A without any complexing protein. Hence, the aesthetic effects are quite pronounced and can last for a longer time. The absence of complexing bacterial protein also ensures that immunogenic responses are not induced.
Bocouture 50U is intended for adult patients who suffer from moderate to severe facial lines.
Since the treatment involves minimally-invasive injections, patients might experience mild inflammatory responses on the injection site such as bruising, redness, pain and swelling. Please refer to the product leaflet for more information.
