What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX®) and botulinum toxin type B (MYOBLOC™) are purified substances derived from bacteria that blocks the nerve signals from the brain to the muscle. It is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines, for example, in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time.

How does Botox work?

By injecting very tiny amounts into a specific facial muscle, only the impulse of that muscle will be blocked, causing a local relaxation and weakness. In this way, botulinum toxin acts as a muscle blockade to immobilize the underlying cause of the unwanted lines and prevent “wrinkly” expressions.
