What is Botox and is it safe?

Botox Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin) is a highly purified protein derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum.  While most people commonly associate Botox with botulism (food poisoning), the relationship is not correct.  Botulism is caused by the introduction of the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria directly into the body.  The bacteria then multiply and produces large amounts of the botulinum toxin.  During the injection of Botox Cosmetic, there are no bacteria introduced into the body.  Rather the purified protein (Botox or Botulinum Toxin) produced by the bacteria is introduced into the body in a very controlled manner (ie very, very low doses).

Botox is by far the most common non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed.  Even with all of the millions of procedures performed there has never been a single reported death related to Botox Cosmetic injections.  The reason for this is that the amount of Botox injected for cosmetic purposes is many hundreds of times less than would be required to bring on symptoms similar to what occurs in Botulism cases.

Although we recognize that there are risks associated with using any drug, Botox Cosmetic remains one of the safest pharmaceutical drugs on the market with few if any side effects and no deaths associated with the product.
