Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botuline. When a purified form of it is injected into a facial muscle, the toxin blocks the nerve signals of the muscle, temporarily weakening it—and smoothing out unwanted lines and furrows.
Botox has received FDA approval for the treatment of moderate to severe brow (glabellar) lines in adults aged 18 to 65 years. It’s also used to minimize other wrinkles on the face and neck, including tiny crow’s feet around the eyes and smoker’s lines around the lips.
Treatments take just a few minutes. The procedure is relatively pain-free, although you may experience some mild stinging or burning during the injections. You can return to your normal routine immediately afterward, although you should avoid rubbing the treated area for 2 or 3 hours. You will notice full effect of the treatment within 5 days. Results vary, and tend to last for 3 to 4 months.
