What is Botox?
Botox, from Allergan Inc., is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures performed for the temporary correction of certain facial wrinkles. It is a series of small intramuscular injections of an FDA approved purified protein. It works by reducing the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines, such as those between the brows and crow’s feet that cause wrinkles to form over time. The result is a smoother appearance of these areas for several months.
