Lose those unwanted age lines with the help of convenient and quick Botox injections! Botox is one of the most popular injectable options today. Are you curious about how Botox actually works?
Botox Cosmetic is a formulation of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin type A. When Botox is introduced to the muscles via injection, it works to block a chemical called acetylcholine from reaching the nerves.
Acetylcholine causes muscle contractions. When it is blocked, this makes it so muscles are not overused to the point of lasting contraction. After injections, contracted muscles relax, and the fine lines in the skin smooth away.
