Botox injections, Botulinum Toxin, block certain chemical signals from nerves. Mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. Though this toxin can be used in various other regions of the face.

How does Botox work?

Botox targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years.
