How It Works
Improve your look.
Botulinum toxin is in the medication class of neuromuscular paralytic agents. It relaxes the muscles in the area of injection by preventing muscle contractions. For cosmetic purposes, it can smooth out facial wrinkles in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, mouth, and more. It is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the world.
Each brand of Botulinum toxin is slightly different.
