Over time, as the sun damages your skin, the temporary wrinkles that form on your face when you move your facial muscles may become permanent. This can unfortunately cause you to look stern, tired or angry even when the underlying muscles are still. This happens because the sun degrades your skin so much that it loses it’s natural elasticity.
Botulinum toxin, popularly known by one of it’s trade names such as Botox, is a prescription medicine that is injected to relax the muscles beneath, preventing the creation of wrinkles with age.
What is Botox ?
Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox as it is a very first introduced brand, is a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It relaxes muscles by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle contraction that causes lines and wrinkles.
The cosmetic effect of Botulinum toxin was first documented as early as 1989 while used for migraine treatment and was approved by the FDA in 2002. It is now regularly used by many, both male and female, as it is less intrusive and less artificial in appearance than traditional form of treatment such as plastic surgery
