What is the Difference between Anti-Wrinkle Injectables and Botox®?

Navigating the beauty industry can be tough. Changing trends, misinformation and new technology makes it difficult to know what is what and which products will work for you. Even some of the most popular cosmetic treatments, like Botox® (which has been around for 25 years) can cause confusion. Read on to learn about the difference between anti-wrinkle injectables and Botox. Spoiler: There is none! Learn more about whether it is the right treatment for you.

How is Botox Different than an Anti-wrinkle Injectable?

There actually is no difference between anti-wrinkle injectables and Botox! Botox falls under the broader category of “anti-wrinkle injectables” and is one of the most effective methods for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Botox?

Botox, or Botulim Toxin Type A, is a purified protein that relaxes the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles for up to six months. It is the original and most well-known name for fast and affordable wrinkle treatments. Its safety has been extensively tested and verified over decades of use.

Where is the Best Clinic to Receive Treatment?

There are lots of different providers of anti-injectable treatments. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all treatments are identical. Be warned: just because the anti-injectable treatment offered by one practitioner sounds the same as that offered by another, doesn’t mean that they are made equal. While Botox is not very invasive, it is still a surgical procedure that requires a high level of skill and expertise. It is important to receive treatment from a trained surgeon specialising in facial aesthetics.
