Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are the the cosmetic forms of botulinum toxin, often referred to by the market product learner, named Botox®. They are safe, popular, non-surgical injections that temporarily reduces or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes, thick bands in the neck as well as gummy smiles, pebbled chins and downturned lips.
Botox blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. The most exciting component of using botulinum toxins is that patients can prevent future wrinkling by starting and continuing the toxin a few times per year. They are excellent preventative treatments.
