What is Botox?
Botox is Onabotulinumtoxin A, also known as botulinum toxin. It is derived from clostridium botulinum and helps with anti-aging. It’s a cosmetic procedure as well as a prescription medicine that is injected directly into the muscles which helps to reduce wrinkles and your appearance. It smooths frown lines, enhances facial expressions, and can also be used for other conditions such as lazy eye, excessive sweating (sweat glands), over reactive bladder and neck spasms. It is the most popular non surgical cosmetic procedure in the world.
