Since its arrival onto the cosmetic scene a little over a decade ago, Botox has exploded in popularity, totaling well over 10 million procedures performed. Botox is an injectable intended for cosmetic purposes and is a derivative of the botulinum toxin, hence the name. The chemical is injected into the muscles of the face in order to reduce and prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
Botox injections work by intercepting impulses from the nerves of the muscles that have been injected. This limits the amount of muscle activity. The limited activity helps to reduce the creation of wrinkles and lines over time, because it’s the habitual facial expressions, such as smiling, frowning or furrowing the eyebrows, which create wrinkles.
