  1. Botox paralyses the muscle

Botulinum toxin A aids in providing selective denervation. This is where the signal for a muscle to contract is reduced or eliminated. In effect where the muscle cannot contract, it cannot bunch the skin to cause wrinkles. This effect is reversible with effects wearing off on average by three months.


  1. Botox is only used to reduce wrinkles

Although to some degree this is true, there are more and more uses for Botox. These include anti wrinkle treatments, hyperhidrosis treatments (excessive sweating), migraine or headache treatments, overactive bladder treatments, teeth grinding treatments, eye twitching and even neuralgia treatments. A lot of the uses mentioned are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
