Derived from sources that exist in nature
BOTOX Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of 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 the 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.
A treatment experienced by millions of people
Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002. Today, BOTOX Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.+

How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet – the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
