What is Botox?

Botox (Botulinum toxin) is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium makes several different types of protein which are called type A to type F.

There are currently two different types of Botox (Botulinum Toxin) commercially available in Manchester – Type A toxin (including the brands Botox®, Azzalure®, Bocouture®, Dysport®, Vistabel® and Xeomin® plus type B variant Neurobloc®.
