Botox is a muscle relaxing agent made from onabotulinumtoxinA, which prevents the muscles from creating wrinkles in the face. Botox is designed to treat wrinkles caused when you move your facial muscles.
Since Botox is a prescription medicine that gets injected into your facial muscles, it can reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes.
Botox can also provide therapeutic relief for TMJ pain, migraine headaches, and trigger point therapy for muscles.
It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes these persistent lines to form. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic are temporary, lasting up to 4 months.
