If you’re interested in using anti-wrinkle injections to improve your appearance and delay age lines and wrinkles you may be confused by the array of different brands, what they have to offer, and why some of the most well-known brands are not mentioned by name.
To make it easier for you, we have answered some of the most commonly asked questions for you in regards to the similarities and differences between each of the brands.
1. Why are anti-wrinkle injections not called by their proper name?
As these are prescription medicines, Australian law prohibits us from using their brand names on our website or on social media. They are classified as scheduled medicine that can only be recommended and prescribed by a registered doctor. Therefore, we refer to them as the American Brand, French Brand and German Brand of anti-wrinkle injections. However we can mention brand names upon request, so if you’re looking for a specific brand, please contact us.
2. What are the similarities between the American Brand, French Brand and the German Brand?
All three of them have a form of the same purified toxin and when administered, it temporarily relaxes the targeted muscle areas on the face to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, lines on the forehead and frown lines. There are several areas of the face and body that we use these toxins as including some areas you might not expect, including the palms of the hand and underarms for Hyperhidrosis.
3. What are the differences between the American Brand, French Brand and the German Brand?
It may seem confusing that there are three alternate brands and because of competitive marketing by these three different distributors, there is some confusion in the market as to what are the differences between these three brands.
The French Brand has now been around for over a decade and is equally safe, but requires three units to achieve the same effect as one unit of the American Brand. However, there are some clinics which do not use this dosage. Therefore, this lack of equivalent dosage has made many people believe it is not as effective as the American Brand. If used in the correct ratio, it is just as effective as the American Brand.
The newest German Brand was launched in Australia in May 2014 and is stated to be a purified neurotoxin, with no protein additives. Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia have treated thousands of patients with this brand. It is a safe and effective medicine like the others, and uses the same equivalent per unit as the American Brand. The lack of protein additives may also result in a lower likelihood of developing resistance to anti-wrinkle injections.
It is understandable why many are curious about these three anti-wrinkle injection brands when determining which treatment is best suited to them. While the American Brand has been around for over 30 years, the French and German Brands have also entered the market and have been successful as well.
Most people who have undergone anti-wrinkle injection treatments are most familiar with the American Brand. With the emergence of the French Brand and German Brand, patients have a variety of options and competitive prices to choose from. However, the French Brand requires a different quantity to other brands so don’t be fooled by cheap unit pricing, the overall cost to achieve the same results is likely to be similar.
