At Eden Medical, our Doctors always get asked the difference between Botox and other similar brands when consulting on an anti-wrinkle treatment. Anti-wrinkle injections are a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
Popular Anti-Wrinkle Injection Brands
The most common brands of anti-wrinkle injections are made from botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes facial muscles, thus preventing them from contracting and causing wrinkles. There are several brands of botulinum toxin injections available on the market, with Botox, Azzalure and Dysport being the most well-known and commonly used brands of botulinum toxin to treat facial wrinkles and fine lines.
How Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work
Botox, Azzalure, and Dysport are made from a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, that’s injected into specific areas, to temporarily relax the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. The most common areas for anti-wrinkle injections are typically injected into the forehead, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes, but many other areas can be considered for anti-wrinkle treatment. Anti-wrinkle injections are not just for cosmetic treatment but can also help with migraines, excessive sweating, teeth grinding, and many other concerns. If you’re going for an anti-wrinkle consultation, read this article on the main treatment areas for anti-wrinkle injections to see what you might be suitable for.
As with any cosmetic treatment, it is important to consult with a qualified medical professional before undergoing any anti-wrinkle treatments with Botox, Azzalure or any other injectable product.
