What does Botox do?

Table of Contents

Botox is a drug prepared from bacteria named Clostridium  Botulinum.

Botox is used cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. There are three types of Clostridium Botulinum; abotulinumtoxinA (Botox) and abobotulinumtoxinA( Dysport) incobotulinumtoxinA(Xeomin)
The effects of Dysport may show up sooner, but Botox and Xeomin may last longer.

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, therefore, muscles can’t contract. This process relaxes the wrinkles and smoothes skin. Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of Botox, which it usually ends in 24 to 48 hours. The effects of the Botox will last usually three to six months, and it needs to be repeated.
