What is BOTOX?

BOTOX® is the trade name of a medical/cosmetic product from Alergan. BOTOX or Botulinum toxin is a purified neurotoxic protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium, which decreases the activity of the muscles when directly injected.

Botuninum toxin is used to treat medical conditions such as muscle spasms on the face or eyelids, eye movement disorders, such as a lazy eye and spasmodic torticollis, a muscle spasm that causes the head and neck to pull in one direction. Botuninum toxin has found it's way into the cosmetic industry under the cosmetic brand 'BOTOX®' for aesthetic uses sush as temporarily smoothing frown lines, crows feet, wrinkle reduction and decreasing sweating.
