Botulinum Toxin, commonly known as Botox, is a toxin produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum.

By injecting minimal amounts of the toxin into specific facial muscles, the nerve impulse is blocked and, temporarily, the muscle becomes weaker and reduces wrinkles in the skin, resulting in a more youthful and rested appearance.
