What is BOTOX, and how does it work?

BOTOX Cosmetic, a type of botulinum toxin type A, has revolutionized the world of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. But how does BOTOX work? The answer lies in its ability to block nerve signals that contract muscles, resulting in a softened and more relaxed appearance. BOTOX injections are primarily used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines, offering a noninvasive option for those seeking a more youthful, refreshed look.
