BOTOX is the most common medical cosmetic treatment. As people age, the effects of gravity and stress of daily life can be seen on their faces. BOTOX does not stop this process, but it can return youthfulness to your face. It is most commonly used to treat wrinkles such as forehead lines, “crow’s feet” and frown lines for patients of any age. BOTOX “paralyzes” the injected muscle so that muscles you use to squint or frown are no longer able to contract.
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.

*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.
A treatment experienced by millions of people
Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.
