Botox - An Introduction...

Botox is a temporary treatment used to minimize dynamic wrinkles and fine lines, technically Botox is called "Type A Botulinum Toxin".

Wrinkles happen when the nerves attacheted to the muscles release a chemical substance called acetylcholine. That chemical then transmits contraction information to the muscle and that action eventually causes wrinkles in the skin. When Botox is injected it temporarily blocks the release of the acetylcholine, and that blockage relaxes the muscle leaving you with a smoother looking forehead.
