What Is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that temporarily improves the appearance of facial wrinkles, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. It works by blocking nerve communication to the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a type of injectable known as a neuromodulator that contains the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin protein temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, reducing the prominence of the wrinkles. Botox is suitable for treating dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines that appear on the face due to the overuse of facial muscles.
