Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on the different types of botox.
People are un-ware that there are four different types of Botox available and which have been approved by the FDA.
The four Botox products available are:
Botox by Allergan – is by far the most popular product used in the cosmetic world. Botox is commonly used to help wrinkles. Botox is used to prevent the muscles from contracting, temporally paralyse to give the face a smoother and fresher look.
MYOBLOC – these botox injections are predominately used for the treatment of adults with cervical dystonia to reduce the severity of abnormal head position and neck pain associated with cervical dystonia.
Dysport – Dysport is a prescription medicine botox that is injected into the muscle and is also used to treat abnormal head position and neck pain associated with cervical dystonia.
XEOMIN – is a botox prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles and is used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults.
All four products are created from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. All four products are isolated from various strains of bacteria; they present different molecular structures and attach to different parts of the nerve.
