Botox Cosmetic is a brand name for a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes and weakens specific facial muscles. When administered by a trained and certified healthcare provider, Botox can be used to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines, resulting in a smoother and more youthful look. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option. Botox is administered through a series of small, precise injections into the targeted facial muscles. The procedure is relatively quick and minimally uncomfortable.
