What is Botox and Botox Cosmetic?
Botox has become a household term due to its extensive safety record, history of efficacy, and widespread use. Despite popular belief, “Botox” is not a generic name for botulinum toxin; rather, Botox is the name of the specific industry-leading product produced by Allergan. Botox Cosmetic is, as its name implies, the preparation that is used for cosmetic purposes, whereas the product simply called Botox is used for treating neuromuscular disorders. Botox Cosmetic is available in 50-Unit and 100-Unit sterile vials of Clostridium botulinum toxin type A; this toxin comes in a vacuum-dried form without a preservative. One Allergan Unit corresponds to the calculated median lethal dose (LD50) in mice.
