Botox is one of the many trade names for the neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin. The protein is used in cosmetic medicine to treat moderate to severe eye brow furrows (glabellar lines), uncontrolled blinking, lazy eye, wrinkles such as lip lines, and facial creases.
It is a non-surgical procedure that acts to separate nerve impulses from muscle actions. This action lessens muscle contractions in the area of treatment and thereby diminishes wrinkles. However, botox is more than a wrinkle cure; it allows an individual to age gracefully while looking their best.
