Botox is made from very small doses of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that is extremely toxic. The bacteria known as clostridium botulinum produces botulinum toxin.
Botox targets the nervous system and disrupts the signaling process of the nerve system that stimulates muscle contraction. This causes temporary weakness of the muscle.
Muscle contraction happens when the nerves release a chemical substance known as acetylcholine (a chemical messenger that transmits electrical messages to the muscles to contract) at the point where the nerve endings meet the muscle cells.
When botox injection is injected into the muscles, it prevents the release of the chemical substance acetylcholine. When acetylcholine is not released, the muscle doesn’t receive electrical message to contract, which stops the muscle from contracting.
Botox stops muscle contraction, which helps to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and frown lines. When it is injected, it blocks nerve impulses to the surrounding tissues. This reduces muscle activity that causes wrinkles and frown lines, producing smoother and wrinkle-free skin.
Botox also temporarily paralyzes the muscles, which is used for the treatment of some muscles and nerve disorders. Botox is very safe to use and it has few side effects. FDA approved Botox for cosmetic use.
The most common use of Botox is to temporarily eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles from the face and frown lines from the forehead. Botox is becoming increasingly popular for cosmetic use to provide smoother and younger-looking facial skin.

A repetitive involuntary spasm of the eyelid muscles is known as eye twitching. Botox can be used to treat eye twitching by temporarily preventing the movement of muscles and also blocking certain chemical signals from nerve endings.
Cervical dystonia is a painful condition whereby your neck muscles contract involuntarily. This can cause your head to twist or turn to an uncomfortable position. Botox can be used to treat cervical dystonia by reducing or stopping the contraction of your neck muscles.
