Botox Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that contains a purified form of botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes the muscles in your face. By targeting specific muscles, Botox can help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines that are caused by repetitive facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting. This can create a more youthful, refreshed appearance that lasts for several months.
