will occur in the skin. By blocking muscular action, creases will be eliminated
and permanent lines and wrinkles can be prevented.

Botox is a protein made by a bacterium that
affects the muscular action. It disables the
muscle by blocking the release of neurotransmitters
from the nerve to that muscle. This prevents
the muscle from contracting.

are administered to the muscles that cause facial
lines. The sting of the injection lasts only
