Botox Treats More Than Wrinkles
BOTOX injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. BOTOX injections are also used to treat conditions that affect how the body functions.
