BOTOX® is a prescription cosmetic that targets wrinkles and other unwanted signs of aging. The product contains small amounts of purified botulinum toxin, a substance derived from the naturally occurring Clostridium botulinum. This chemical is capable of temporarily interfering with chemical messages released by the nerves, keeping signals to contract from reaching their intended muscles.

When muscles in small, carefully targeted areas stay at rest, the reduced activity creates a smoother, more refreshed-looking complexion.
