What’s the most effective anti-ageing treatment? - It's a commonly googled question that can lead
down the internet rabbit hole. If you’ve ever been on a quest to discover the newest strategies for
dewy, firm and glowing skin, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Trying to locate the right cosmetic
product can feel like you’re being pulled in different directions.
Cut back on the guesswork and follow scientifically-backed advice for understanding how to
approach anti-ageing treatment.
Double-blind placebo-control clinical studies have found that a brand is not a determining factor for
effective treatment results. These studies found a weak correlation between specific anti-wrinkle
brands and positive treatment results. Clinical studies have had no statistically significant results, to
suggest otherwise. Brand of medication should not affect or alter the results.
Therefore, a neurotoxin brand does not always play a major role in the result of treatment, one
might just be a better fit because of patient’s preference. It is a combination of product placement,
understanding of muscle function and a practitioner’s deep understanding of a patient’s needs that
significantly affects the treatment outcome.
However, there are some pharmacological differences in brands. Our practitioners are always happy
to have an in-depth discussion explaining the product and differences among medication,
investigating your skincare needs thoroughly on an individual basis. Only time we say no the ‘UK
brand’ is if you have an anaphylactic reaction to lactose. ‘German brand’ is also more suitable if you
chose a vegan lifestyle. Finding your fit is the most important, at our clinic, Nurse Pam will explain
why we think a particular brand is more suited to you.
The process of treatment is multifactorial. You cannot rely on a brand itself to promise great results,
and a marketing spiel on a glossy plastic bottle shouldn’t be the determining factor for what anti-
ageing treatment works best for you.
