Botox LogoBOTOX® is the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In large amounts, BOTOX® blocks the nerve impulses to muscles, causing a form of paralysis called botulism. In extremely small doses, is injected directly into the specific muscles that cause frown lines. These isolated muscles are paralyzed by BOTOX® and can no longer contract.

The action of frowning is stopped, and frown lines diminish. Frown lines are caused by the bunching of skin from facial muscle contraction. When we frown, the skin between our eyebrows is gathered into a fold which eventually causes a chronic furrow. BOTOX® has been shown to soften and reduce crows feet, forehead wrinkles, nasal creases, and the neck line.*

Dysport® (Reloxin) which has been used in Europe since 1991 is now available in the U.S. Until recently, BOTOX® was the only FDA approved Botulinum toxin A available as a wrinkle relaxer.
