Botox has become a very commonly used term in today’s world. In cosmetic applications, botulinum toxin is considered safe and effective for reduction of facial wrinkles, especially in the uppermost third of the face. Injection of botulinum toxin into the muscles under facial wrinkles causes relaxation of those muscles, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin. Smoothing of wrinkles is usually visible three days after treatment and is maximally visible two weeks following injection. The treated muscles gradually regain function, and generally return to their former appearance three to four months after treatment. Muscles can be treated repeatedly to maintain the smoothed appearance.
Botox is actually the commercial name or trademark of a drug whose main ingredient is botulinum toxin. Incidentally, botulinum toxin is the most poisonous protein and naturally occurring substance. However, further studies have shown that this same protein can actually be helpful if used in small quantities.
