Botox® Cosmetic: Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is the most popular cosmetic product/procedure in the world. Botox (botulinum toxin) is a purified protein neurotoxin that blocks the transmission of information from nerve cells to muscle cells. This action temporarily relaxes muscles such as those in the face. Over time, facial movements such as frowning and squinting form wrinkles on our faces. When injected by a trained medical professional like a board-certified dermatologist, Botox does not paralyze these facial muscles; it simply relaxes them, softening and smoothing facial lines and wrinkles. Treated clients appear more relaxed, happy and younger looking. Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved for the treatment of glabella (or “frown lines”), but it is also used on many other facial wrinkles, such as the horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. It is one of the safest injectables ever used and has an incredibly good safety record.
