Botox is an injectable with a 25-year track record of successful medical and cosmetic applications. The most popular use for Botox is for aesthetic anti-aging purposes.
The active ingredient in the drug, a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, blocks the nerve signals that communicate with your muscles and cause them to flex. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines from repeated muscle movements, particularly on your face. Physicians also use Botox to treat several medical conditions and symptoms from overactive muscles.
