Botox or botulinum toxin type A is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkles causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance. The active ingredient in Botulinum Toxin Type A treatment is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. Much as the same way penicillin is derived from mold, it is manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions.
Botulinum Toxin Type A can be used to relax specific facial muscle that cause dynamic wrinkles (the wrinkles that are formed during facial expression). Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them preventing undesirable facial expressions. Thus, the lines gradually smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.
A small amount of Botulinum Toxin Type A is admistered into selected facial muscles by a trained doctor.
