Botox is a neurotoxic protein produced by a bacterium known as clostridium botulinum. This protein prevents the release of a substance called, Acetylcholine, from nerve endings at the junction between nerves and muscles. The result is muscle paralysis.
Wherever botox is injected it will prevent the muscle from contracting. This, in turn, prevents the formation of wrinkles.
Once treated, you should notice the effects after 2 to 3 days. However, it will take up to 2 weeks to reach its full effect. You will still be able to frown and smile, but the will appear less wrinkled and will look much more fresh and new.
