What is Botox and how does it Work?

Botox injections contain ‘’botulinum toxin type A’’ which is a neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium. This toxin, present in extremely small doses, inhibits the nerve stimulation of muscles by preventing nerves from releasing a chemical called acetylcholine. In its cosmetic use, Botox injections have the beneficial effect of relaxing facial muscles improving the appearance of frown lines and reducing and preventing the further development of wrinkles - Botox helps the skin to look younger and smoother.
