Botulinum toxin is a purified toxin, there are brand names available to use, such as; Botox (Vistable), Xeominn (Bocouture) and Dysport (Azzalure). Botox became the most well-known brand, and for a lot of people it has become synonymous with the procedure, yet it is only a brand name for the generic Botulinum toxin. It is used as an injection technique that temporarily smoothens frown lines and wrinkles by safely ‘freezing’ certain facial muscles. Lines and wrinkles are found where facial muscles move - preventing these unwanted movements will make the area look smoother and much less wrinkled, giving you a more youthful and revitalised appearance.
Getting Botulinum toxin takes only a few minutes and no anaesthesia is required. The dentist will inject with a fine needle into specific muscle sin areas that you require treatment, with only minor to no discomfort. It generally takes 3-7 days to take full effect with the maximum effect taking place after 2 weeks.
