Botox cosmetic is an injectable neuromodulator which temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As Botox has become more popular, other similar neuromodulators that claim to produce the same results as Botox at a cheaper price, have begun to appear. Although these other brands can appear tempting, patients should be aware of imitators.
Botox & Botox Cosmetic are the only brands that medical providers and patients trust.
Botox cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults.
Botox cosmetic is an established brand that is used in 98 countries since it received its FDA approval back in 2002 for cosmetic use. Botox has a reliable record of delivering consistent results.
Botox is also used to treat overactive bladder, chronic migraines, focal spasticity, and cervical dystonia.
There are various brands of neuromodulators but there are no “generic” brands of Botox. If a patient is considering a neuromodulator to reduce wrinkles, be sure to check that the practitioner is using the one and only Botox Cosmetic.
It is important to remember that good Botox is never cheap & cheap Botox is never good.
