The term “Allergan unit” upon which dosing is based, is a specific measurement of toxin activity that is unique to Allergan’s formulation of botulinum toxin type A. Therefore, the “Allergan units” used to describe BOTOX activity are different from those used to describe that of other botulinum toxin preparations, and the units representing BOTOX activity are not interchangeable with other botulinum products.
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.

It is important to follow and maintain the optimum storage conditions of Botox. Botox can be safely stored in large quantities for easy access, at room temperature before the application’s first usage. Once the Botox solution is made up for the first time, it must be stored in the refrigerator to ensure maximum sterility of its key active ingredients, the neurotoxin from Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It is this neurotoxin that numbs or paralyzes muscles that are subject to spasms.
