Botox is a popular and accessible facial treatment which is used by people to combat the signs of aging. Botulinum toxin (BTX) or Botox is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum and related species. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction and thus causes flaccid paralysis. In medical cosmetics, botulinum toxin is considered safe and effective for reduction of facial wrinkles, especially in the uppermost third of the face. Injection of botulinum toxin into the muscles under facial wrinkles causes relaxation of those muscles, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin.
