WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is the common name for an injection of botulinum toxin, which relaxes the nerve muscles to prevent them from overworking or spasming. The Botox injection works by blocking certain chemical signals in your body that cause your nerves to contract.
Most commonly, this effect is used to relax the nerves in the face to reduce wrinkling and give you a younger appearance. In the last few years, Botox has also been shown to have medical benefits in reducing the pain caused by migraines or TMJ disorders.
