When people talk about injectable cosmetic treatments, the first word that comes into their mind is “botox”. It’s important to know that Botox® is just one of the brand names for commercially-prepared neurotoxin called “Botulinum toxin type A”. This neurotoxin blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing contraction and softening wrinkles. Such mechanism of action is also utilized in treating muscle disorders. In cosmetics, it is used to smooth out wrinkles formed by facial expressions made throughout the years.
