Injectable Treatment for Wrinkles | Botox

Anti-wrinkle treatments by injection (or 'Botox injections' as they are more commonly referred to), are extremely effective at reducing wrinkles, and usually, the best way to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines from the upper area of the face.

Botox Injection Treatment for Wrinkles

The fact that anti-wrinkle injections have been the mainstay of anti-aging treatments in cosmetic non-surgical medical practice, for the removal of wrinkles and fine lines, for over 15 years, speaks for itself. The same product - Botulinum Toxin (BoTox) - has been used in the treatment of certain medical conditions for even longer.

The effectiveness of Botox®, and the alternative Anti-wrinkle injection products, at softening the wrinkles and lines caused by the natural aging process, in a safe and non-permanent way (and over time, in some cases making them disappear altogether), has catapulted Botox and Anti-wrinkle injection treatments, to the forefront of skin rejuvenation therapy.

Best Wrinkle Treatment -- Anti-wrinkle Injections

Wrinkle reduction treatment by injection came out on top in recent studies as the most popular cosmetic procedure ('Best wrinkle treatment'), with over 3 million injections of botulinum toxin (Botox type A) having been administered worldwide.

Anti-wrinkle Injections | Botox  -  Treatment Areas

Anti-wrinkle | Botox injections provide the most effective treatment to prevent lines and wrinkles in the upper facial area. This treatment area covers - forehead lines, frown/glabella lines and the crows feet wrinkles at the side of the eyes :-

Dermal Fillers  tend to be more effective at softening lines and wrinkles in the mid and lower facial area.

What is Botox? | What are Injectable Anti wrinkle Products?

All cosmetic Anti-wrinkle injection treatments, including the most famous of them all - 'Botox' - are all, in effect, the same product: Botulinum Toxin Type A (BtxA).

Botulinum Toxin is a highly purified protein, which, when injected into specific muscles, causes them to relax, softening facial expressions, diminishing lines and wrinkles, helping to freshen a face and reduce the signs of aging.

Botox® is very often used as a generic term when referring to Anti-wrinkle injections - how often do we hear speculation on whether a celebrity has " had Botox? ". However, Botox is in fact, just one Botulinum Toxin Type A product available to the medical practitioner today: there is a good chance, especially within the UK, that if that celebrity has had an Anti-wrinkle treatment, it may not have been Botox they were actually treated with.

Anti-wrinkle injectable treatment products

There are three pharmaceutical companies, producing the six main Botulinum Toxin Type A products available in the UK. Each company produces a pair of products, branded under two different names: one licensed for medical use; one licensed for cosmetic use. These product pairs are :-

In reality, for the consumer, there will actually be no discernable differences between these injectable wrinkle reduction products: all will produce good results if administered correctly. Study results, on the whole, appear mixed: no one injectable anti-wrinkle treatment is outperforming the others.

An experienced practitioner should notice the differences in these products: they are concerned with the practicalities of product preparation; and, more importantly, the nuances of product behaviour during the administering of the product. Any experienced practitioner will, most likely, have a preference to working with one particular anti-wrinkle product.
