What is botox?
Commonly known as botox, this is a substance produced by bacteria called botulinum toxin, which acts at a molecular level to block or weaken the muscle’s action. Botox has various uses in medicine. On a cosmetic level it is used to soften the wrinkles between the eyebrows, those on the forehead, crow’s feet and to improve the outline of the eyebrows. It’s also used in other areas of the face. The result of its use is to give a more relaxed and fresher looking face.
