Allergan plc is an American pharmaceutical company based in Ireland that purchases, develops, manufactures and markets branded drugs and medical devices in the areas of medical aesthetics, eye care, the central nervous system and gastroenterology.
The company is the creator of Botox, a botulinum toxin that has become a common name for almost the entire range of drugs in this group.

It contains a high content of botulinum toxin, making it possible to achieve the desired result using fewer units than in similar preparations.
The most popular brands of botox are Allergan's Botox, French-made Dysport, German Xeomin and Korean Botulax. All of these products contain botulinum toxin type A and human albumin, but with different auxiliary components. Xeomin is unique in that it contains no proteins, which means that the risk of an allergic reaction is almost zero. Botox and fillers are fundamentally different things.

Dysport is valued by cosmetologists and their customers for its affordable cost and high effectiveness. It is used for a person's primary or secondary insensitivity to American “Botox” and starts to work faster than other brands.
