BOTOX Cosmetic

Purified botulinum toxin from Clostridium botulinum, purified from culture via dialysis and acid precipitation.

BOTOX Cosmetic - Pharmacology:

BOTOX Cosmetic blocks neuromuscular transmission by binding to acceptor sites on motor or sympathetic nerve terminals, entering the nerve terminals, and inhibiting the release of acetylcholine. This inhibition occurs as the neurotoxin cleaves SNAP-25, a protein integral to the successful docking and release of acetylcholine from vesicles situated within nerve endings.

BOTOX Cosmetic Interactions

Co-administration of BOTOX® and aminoglycosides or other agents interfering with neuromuscular transmission (e.g., curare-like compounds) should only be performed with caution as the effect of the toxin may be potentiated.

The effect of administering different botulinum neurotoxin serotypes at the same time or within several months of each other is unknown. Excessive neuromuscular weakness may be exacerbated by administration of another botulinum toxin prior to the resolution of the effects of a previously administered botulinum toxin.

BOTOX Cosmetic Contraindications

BOTOX® is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any BOTOX® ingredient in the formulation.
