How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

The muscles of facial expression will typically cause overlying skin to wrinkle in an accordion-like fashion. Botox® eliminates these facial wrinkles, which occur with habitual overuse of specific muscles. It prevents the muscle from contracting, so the skin creases will gradually decrease in depth and severity.

A small amount of Botox® is injected right into the muscles that are responsible for producing wrinkles. Botox® effectively inactivates these muscles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically.
