What is Botox®?
Botox® is a brand of medications known as botulinum toxins. Other brands include Dysport and Xeomin. Botulinum toxin, despite its negative connotation, has many important medical uses. In cosmetic dermatology it is used to temporarily relax frown lines and lines of facial expression. Botox® injections, particularly of the forehead and eye area, are among the safest and most reliable way to relax the fine lines and wrinkles on a patient's face.
Benefits of Botox®
The goals of Botox® injections are to produce noticeable results, which also appear natural and aesthetically pleasing. Indeed many patients remark how their friends, spouses and co-workers note how well-rested and refreshed they appear, without ever expecting that a cosmetic procedure had been performed.
