BOTOX botulinum toxin commonly known as Botox is an injectable purified protein. When injected beneath the skin it paralyzes muscle in the specific treated areas, blocking the activity of a neurotransmitter. The effect is firming and tightening of the skin, reducing the visibility of wrinkles and lines in the treated area.

Botox is injected with a very fine needle, much like those used in acupuncture. There will be very little or no pain upon injection. There is no associated irritation or inflammation.
