Botox® Cosmetics is a solution with unprecedented popularity. Men and women have been using to this trusted nonsurgical solution that provides smooth, younger-looking skin for years.
Some may be skeptical over its effectiveness in reducing dynamic wrinkles and lines, however, the mere fact that Botox has been used by millions of people, testifies to how safe this minimally invasive, FDA-approved solution is.
Botoxing away frown lines
Botox® is a purified protein that acts as a neuromuscular blocker. When infused in the wrinkled area, botox (botulinum toxin) stops neurotransmitter, acetylcholine from being released. This results in muscle relaxation as muscle and nerve no longer interact as they did before. In turn, this leads to a gradual smoothening of the wrinkles.
While Botox is a popular choice for frown lines, this is not its sole application. Crow’s feet, smoker and forehead lines are also treatable with Botox. Recently, Botox has even been tested as a precautionary measure for migraines.
