Botox is a cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, or Onobotulinumtoxin A, a neurotoxin that is used to "freeze" muscles. There are four types of Onobotulinumtoxin A, including Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin® and Jeuveau®. A Botox injection blocks the nerve signals to the muscle, which means that it cannot contract. Since these contractions are responsible for highlighting and deepening existing wrinkles, Botox injections serve to give your face a smoother, younger appearance.
OnabotulinumtoxinA received FDA approval for therapeutic use in 1989 and was rebranded BOTOX®. Through expanded research into aesthetic uses Allergan later commenced clinical trials to study the treatment's safety and efficacy for moderate to severe frown lines.
2002 THE FIRST TREATMENT APPROVED FOR COSMETIC USE
On April 15, 2002, the FDA approved BOTOX® as a temporary aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines in adults and requested the product be marketed as BOTOX® Cosmetic to distinguish aesthetic from therapeutic uses. It was the first treatment of its kind to be approved for an aesthetic use and today is the only product FDA-approved to make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic quickly became one of the world’s most recognized and iconic brands. Approved for use in 95 countries, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become the #1 selling treatment of its kind around the world.
