Botox has been around for a long time now and has been clinically proven to be both safe and effective. Hundreds of thousands of people have undergone Botox injections to smooth out unsightly wrinkles with near universal satisfaction. But just what is Botox and what does it entail? Botox is actually a highly-diluted bacterium toxin that is injected directly into the area that the patient feels they need to smooth out. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscle nerves that cause the wrinkling of the skin, which results in a smoother and more youthful appearance. It is especially popular in reducing or eliminating crow’s feet around the eyes and laugh lines around the mouth. Botox is FDA-approved and has been proven safe in countless procedures.
