What is the difference between all of the Botox types?

What is the difference between all of the Botox types and which on is the best? I keep hearing about several different types, but am a little confused on what each type truly does for the skin.

There are two types of Botox medications administered by medical professionals: "Botox" and "Botox Cosmetics".  Botox Cosmetics is used to treat facial wrinkles while regular Botox treats medical problems from eyelid twitching to chronic migraines. Botox is primarily known as botulinum toxin created by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. Botox lasts for approximately 3-4 months.

Actually there are several neurotoxins available but only two are currently in use in the US, Botox and Dysport.
