Patients sometimes refer to Anti-Wrinkle injections as Botox, which is the brand name for Botulinum Toxin made by Allergan. This is because they were the first brand to come to prominence in this field.  Although some patients in Stoke on Trent  will call our Wrinkle Relaxing Injection Botox this isn't the name of the injectable we use.
