Botox is one of the trade names for botulinum toxin. Other names include Jeauveau/Newtox, Dysport, Myobloc and Xeomin.
Botox and each of these branded treatments help you to soften and eliminate wrinkles across your forehead and around your eyes creating a younger, healthy look. Botox works as it is injected just below the skin. This relaxes the tense muscle and erases the wrinkles and fine lines caused by that muscle. Botox is FDA approved for temporarily reducing various lines on your face.
