Botox is a natural, purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Very low doses of Botox are administered via a few tiny injections directly in to the overactive muscles that cause lines to form. Botox works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles. The most common areas treated are the upper third of the face including the forehead, frown lines(glabella) and the crows feet. The effects of Botox last an average of 3-5 months and are confined to the injected region; it does not travel throughout the body. Botox is safe if used properly.
