Botox is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxin in the form of a purified protein. The mechanism of action for Botox is really quite simple; it is injected into facial muscles but really doesn’t affect the muscle at all. It works by blocking the transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate the muscle. The areas typically treated with Botox for wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes, around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the lips (smokers lines or gummy smile). There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract, causing wrinkles in the skin to smooth. The effects last approximately three to four months, at which time the patient will require re-treatment.
