Botox is a well-known drug that has been used for many years to treat facial creases and wrinkles. Botox is the name of the drug rather than a brand name. Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. During the treatment, the doctor will inject Botox into the muscle which will stop the muscle from contracting. This will make wrinkles relax and soften. Botox if often used for forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox does not help with wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity, which is where the phrase ‘prevention is better than cure’ in Botox terms come from.
