There are several substances utilized in cosmetic injections. These include dermal fillers such as the body’s own fat, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, and the neurotoxin botulinum toxin. The cosmetic injection botulinum toxin is most commonly known under trade names Botox Cosmetic as well as Dyport and Xeomin.
