What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. It is a purified protein safely used in medicine for over 40 years. It is injected into muscles and works by blocking nerve signals that direct those facial muscles to contract during facial expression. By blocking this contraction, Botox relaxes wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming. For both prevention and relaxation of wrinkles, results last anywhere from 3 to 6 months.
You’ll Look Like Yourself Again
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, well-trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.
A Well Studied Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.* BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
*VISTABEL® outside of North America.
Derived from Sources that Exist in Nature
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
