Many wrinkles are caused by repeated contraction of muscles in the face. Botox is used as as anti-aging treatment to block the nerve impulses for muscle contractions in the face.

How does Botox work? What is it? Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox Cosmetic) is a chemical produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin is one of the most potent toxic substances in nature. When used in a medical setting as an injectable form of sterile, purified botulinum toxin, small doses block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine by nerve cells that signal muscle contraction.
Botox is injected into the muscles, reducing muscle contraction for a period of three to six months. The treatment is designed to break the habit of frowning or squinting and so reduce the appearance of the lines and also reduce the development of further facial lines. After Botox treatment it takes 2-3 days for the effects to start to be seen reaching its maximum effect at 7-10 days. The treatment can last from to 3-6 months, on average 4 months.

Although there is no chance of contracting botulism from Botox injections, there are some risks associated with the procedure. There is a small risk of eyelid drooping (ptosis) and slight puffiness following treatment. The incidence of ptosis is about 5% but always ask your doctor what problems they have had with treatments as this will differ between doctors.
If too much toxin is injected, for example (which has happened in the past) it can cause problems or if it is injected into the wrong facial area.
