BOTOX® Cosmetic can relax muscles on areas of the face and neck which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions. Treatment of BOTOX® Cosmetic can cause your facial expression lines or wrinkles to essentially disappear. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a formulation of botulinum toxin type A. It is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium produces a protein that blocks the release of acetylcholine to relax muscles. Type A is just one of seven different types of botulinum toxin. The way it works is your brain sends electrochemical messages to your muscles to make them contract and move. These messages are transmitted from a nerve to the muscle by a substance called acetylcholine. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the nerve from releasing acetylcholine. As a result, the muscle spasms stop or are greatly reduced, providing relief from symptoms. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in small doses directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows to form, allowing that area to smooth out. It will not affect your ability to laugh, smile or otherwise express yourself.
