What is Botox and How is it Manufactured in the USA?

Botox, or onabotulinumtoxinA, is a purified form of botulinum toxin produced from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is the first product of its kind to receive approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for aesthetic use. Botox is manufactured by Allergan, an AbbVie company, and is used to treat glabellar lines, forehead wrinkles, crow's feet, and chronic migraines. It has become a popular anti-aging injectable that celebrities have made very popular in the early 2000s. Mitchell Brin, Senior Vice President of Drug Development and Scientific Director of Botox & Neurotoxins at Allergan, explains that the production of Botox starts with the purified raw material of botulinum neurotoxin type A.

Less than one gram of this purified toxin is enough to produce the worldwide supply of Botox and Botox Cosmetic for a whole year. Allergan markets the drug and acquired Oculinum in 1991, changing its name to Botox in 1992. It's important to be aware of any risks or side effects associated with Botox injections. The effects of Botox can spread and cause severe symptoms hours or weeks after the injection.
