Botox

Botox – or botulinum toxin A if you want to get technical – is one of the best-known drug names in the world. You’d be forgiven for thinking that Botox is the proper term for all wrinkle-relaxing injections, but it’s actually just one of a number of brands on the market. It is, however, the best-known brand of wrinkle-relaxing injections and the one most commonly used by practitioners. Botox is extremely popular in the aesthetics world due to its relatively cheap cost (compared to a surgical face-lift, for example), reliable results, minimal pain level, and the short time it takes to perform the procedure.
