Botox® is one of the most widely known brands of botulinum toxin injections. Botulinum toxins are neurotoxins that affect nerves and cause muscle weakening. You might get a botulinum toxin injection for cosmetic or medical reasons. Healthcare providers inject small amounts of Botox into specific muscles to smooth wrinkles.

How Do Injectables Work?

Botulinum Toxins, are popular cosmetic treatment that works by temporarily paralysing muscles. It contains a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which blocks nerve signals to the muscles, preventing them from contracting. This results in a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas like the forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Injectables are minimally invasive and provide quick, noticeable results, making them a sought-after solution for individuals looking to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing surgery.

What is the Difference Between Injectables?

Botox, the most well-known brand, contains onabotulinumtoxinA and has been widely used for decades. Dysport, containing abobotulinumtoxinA, is similar to Botox but tends to have a faster onset of action and may spread more widely, making it suitable for larger treatment areas. Neuronox, also known as Meditoxin, is another form of botulinum toxin type A, primarily used in certain regions such as South Korea. Xeomin, on the other hand, contains incobotulinumtoxinA and is a “naked” toxin, meaning it lacks accessory proteins, potentially reducing the risk of antibody formation and making it suitable for patients who have developed resistance to other brands.

All injectables deliver similar results and just have very slight differences. If you have a brand preference please let us know when you book, otherwise if you are unsure our Doctor can provide more information and recommendations on the day of your appointment.
