Botox is short for Botulinum Toxin Type A. It was approved in 2002 for cosmetic use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe and temporary solution for smoothing wrinkles. (Yes, it’s derived from the same neurotoxin known for causing botulism, an illness that paralyzes muscles and can be fatal).
Despite the botulism association, Botox skyrocketed in popularity and continues to be the most popular non-surgical solution for combating wrinkles, as well as a treatment for chronic migraines and TJM.
Botox is a prescription medicine which is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of frown lines, often between the brows.
Botox is administered as a fast, simple, nonsurgical treatment which is injected directly into the muscles between the eyebrows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to those muscles thus reducing muscle activity that causes these lines to form between the brows.
