This is a pioneering product that has been around for many years. It has enjoyed such an impressive worldwide success that the Botox brand has even acquired a more generic meaning and is often used in a broader sense to describe all botulin toxin products. But make no mistake – there is only one Botox Allergan. In fact, the FDA classifies it as a non-interchangeable cosmetic and medical solution.
The main active ingredient in this fine product is Onabotulinum Toxin Type A. This is the very first type of botulinum toxin that appeared on the commercial market. It has a very specific and unique composition and a molecular weight measured at around 900kDa, 150kDa of which are the core neurotoxin and the rest 750kDa are accessory proteins.
Since Botox Allergan has been around for quite some time now, it is the most tested product of its kind. This has allowed Allergan, the company behind it, to:
- Further improve its production formula over the years
- Deliver safe and effective cosmetic and medical treatments
- Prove the one-of-a-kind qualities and properties of this solution
- Provide patients with a fast and reliable alternative to plastic surgery
Only this product can be used for a so-called Botox injection procedure which typically lasts not more than 10 minutes. The results which it delivers usually become noticeable 1-2 days after the first injection session and remain visible for a period of about 4 months. The effects after a cosmetic treatment with this trusted product provide an improvement of medium to deep:
- Crow’s feet;
- Forehead lines;
- Frown lines.
It can also be applied for the treatment of medical conditions such as spastic hand muscles, TMJ, blepharospasm, hyperhidrosis, strabismus and more. For optimum results, this product should be injected only from a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
