BOTOX 100U 1 vial by Allergan is an injectable botolinum type A in the form of vacuum-dried powder supplied in a single use vial.
Injected botulinum toxin prevents the release of acetylcholine, preventing contraction of the muscle cells. Botulinum toxin causes a reduction in abnormal muscle contraction, allowing the muscles to become less stiff. Botulinum toxin is predominantly used as a treatment to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines.
Beyond aesthetic applications, Botox is used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including eye squints, migraines, excess sweating, and leaky bladders. Botulinum toxin is currently used to treat over 20 different medical conditions, with more applications under investigation.
