Botox is a brand name of the injectable botulinum toxin. Other brands of botulinum toxin are Dysport, Azzalure and Bocouture. The injectable has been used in medicine since 1995 and is by now the most well-known treatment in the cosmetics industry.
Signs of ageing, such as frown lines or fine wrinkles, can be caused by the contraction of the muscles in the face. The injectable reduces this muscle activity. Frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles are made less pronounced through very fine injections.
Van Lennep Kliniek is the specialist for Botox treatments in The Hague or Oegstgeest. The cosmetic doctors are certified by the NVCG (Dutch Association of Cosmetic Medicine), have extensive experience and only use botulinum toxin from the safe top brand Allergan.
