Botox is a medication that uses a botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin works by blocking a chemical that is released from the nerve that causes the muscle to contract. This results in a temporary paralysis of the muscle. Wrinkles and facial lines are the result of the contraction of facial muscle that are attached to the overlying skin. As these muscles contract the overlying skin becomes creased. The most common use of Botox is injection to temporarily decrease the contraction of certain facial muscles.
The effects of Botox lasts for 3-4 months.
