What is Botox?
Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting a purified form of the botulinum toxin into specific muscles. The toxin works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles, which helps to smooth out wrinkles and give the face a more youthful appearance.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox works by blocking the signals between the nerves and the muscles. When the botulinum toxin is injected into the muscles, it prevents the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which is responsible for muscle contractions. By blocking these signals, Botox relaxes the muscles and prevents them from contracting, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
