The injection of botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, has become very popular for reducing wrinkles and rejuvenating the aging face. First granted U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to treat frown lines in 2002, Botox remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market, and its popularity continues to rise. Multiple formulations of botulinum toxin exist, including Botox, Dysport and Xeomin.
Most physically healthy, non-smokers are good candidates for botulinum toxin A.
