5 Things You Never Knew About Botox


Anti-wrinkle injections often referred to as ‘Botox’, are widely used in aesthetics as a cosmetic treatment to relax the facial muscles to smooth out frown lines and the appearance of wrinkles. In this month’s blog, we share five things you never knew about Botox!

Botox Is A Brand Name

Botox is a brand, despite it being used as an umbrella term for anti-wrinkle injections. There are three reputable brands of botulinum toxin anti-wrinkle injections, Botox®, Bocouture® and Azzalure®. At Intrigue, we use Bocouture® based on our aesthetician’s personal preference and excellent results. Our client’s safety is paramount, so we only work with reputable brands with outstanding safety records.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections Are Preventative, Not Restorative

Unlike dermal fillers, which plump and fill hollows and replenish the loss of volume, anti-wrinkles work by helping to prevent more facial wrinkles from forming by ‘reducing movement’ in the facial muscles. They temporarily ‘smooth’ the facial lines but will not eradicate deeper wrinkles. Most clients like to use a combination of anti-wrinkle injections alongside their dermal fillers. In contrast, other clients prefer to use anti-wrinkle injections as a youthful skin alternative to fillers.

A Medical Professional Must Administer Botox

Anti-wrinkle botulinum toxin injections are classed as a medical treatment and, therefore, must be administered by a medical professional. A medical professional will have undergone extensive training and has exceptional knowledge of facial anatomy. This expertise significantly reducing any complication rate or undesirable results. A medical professional will also ensure that your face is in safe hands.

You Never Knew It Could Help Sweating Or Migraines

Botulinum toxin injectables are effective treatments for smoothing out static wrinkles but are used successfully by doctors to treat migraines and some board-certified dermatologists to treat excessive sweating. These medical professionals assess individual patients, and a treatment plan is created. At Intrigue, we offer Botox for excessive sweating, helping to cosmetically reduce sweat patches for clients.

Botox Can Be Used To Enhance Lips

At Intrigue Cosmetic Clinic, lip fillers are one of our most popular dermal filler treatments, but you can use Botox to enhance your upper lip. Botulinum toxin injections encourage the top lip to relax, and the result is a slight roll-up to reveal more of the body of the lip. This treatment is a very subtle enhancement which enhances the lip shape and can help soften the appearance of wrinkles across the top lip. More pronounced dynamic wrinkles typically require more direct treatment for static wrinkles and facial lines in this area. When next booking in for your anti-wrinkle maintenance treatment, it could be an option.
