What types of botox are there?

When it comes to looking fabulous and keeping wrinkles at bay, botox is the way to go. But did you know that there are different types of botox? Yes, you heard me right! So if you want to make an informed decision about which one works best for you, grab a glass of wine and read on!

1. Botulinum Toxin A

Botulinum toxin A, commonly known as Botox is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum that causes paralysis. Injecting this into your face restricts muscle contraction and reduces wrinkles – making it the ultimate anti-aging solution.

How Does It Work?

Botox targets what’s called acetylcholine receptors in your muscles. These receptors activate when stimulated by nerve signals from your brain causing muscular contractions such as blinking or smiling. With Botox treatment, botulinum toxin prevents these signals from reaching their target receptor resulting in temporary reduction or elimination of facial expression lines like frown lines or crow’s feet.

2. Dysport

Dysport, also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, is another type of injectable neuromodulator used to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

How Does It Differ From Botox?

The main difference between Dysport Vs Botox lies within its molecular structure allowing for more natural-looking results with a slightly faster onset than traditional ‘B-toxing’. Dysport has smaller molecules than those found in traditional botox causing improved diffusion for targeted relaxation areas without compromising on efficacy.

3. Xeomin

Next up we have Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) – sounds like something out of Star Wars huh?

How Is This Different From Other Types Of B-Toxing Products In The Market?

Whilst its molecular structure is almost identical to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin’s formulation does not contain any additional accessory proteins or complexes. Essentially, it is 100% pure toxin with no additives.

4. Jeuveau

Jeuveau (prabotulinumtoxinA) also called ‘NewTox’, has been approved by the FDA as an injectable treatment for moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows – a.k.a- glabellar lines.

How Is This Different From The Other Types of Botulinum Toxin Products In The Market?

Like other neuromodulators, Jeauvue works to block signals sent from the nerves to the muscles in your face reducing dynamic wrinkles that form when you make repetitive facial expressions like squinting or pursing your lips… However what sets it apart are these #FunFacts:
+ It is marketed as the “modern-day wrinkle eraser.”
+ It’s younger sister named Vazyvem was launched recently as innovative new technology which uses RF energy (Radio Frequency) combined with microneedles – neat huh?!

5. Azzalure / Reloxin

Azzalure, known outside Europe as Reloxin — though lesser-known than their counterparts Botox and Dysport– work similarly in treating fine lines and wrinkles on specific areas of your face through muscle relaxation without losing mobility completely.

What's So Special About These Two?

The biggest difference about this line-up? They seem specifically preferred among patients because they may cause less spreading around injection sites creating more refined results but requiring slightly higher dose ranges than those found within traditional ‘B-toxing’.

Note: However if you’re feeling adventurous, I say give them a try!

Wrapping Up On Our Little Adventure!

And there you have it folks! No matter which type of neuromodulator you choose, they all work by blocking acetylcholine receptors in your muscles to create a temporary relaxation that leads to reduction or elimination of wrinkles. So feel free to mix and match before finding the perfect one.

Now go out there and face every day with confidence knowing you’re seeking the nest newest technology can offer – no wrinkles allowed!
