A little over ten years ago, Botox arrived on the domestic market in a big way. Since then, well over 20 million Botox procedures have been performed in the United States alone. Botox is a wrinkle-reduction injection that derives from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and is designed for cosmetic purposes.

With the aid of an ultra-thin needle, the purified solution is injected into the targeted areas of the face in order to reduce lines and stave off the formation of new wrinkles.

Botox injections work by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that create habitual facial expressions in order to limit their amount of activity. This subtle change helps to reduce wrinkles and lines in a quick, convenient way that typically lasts up to four months.
