One of the most important advances in cosmetic medicine is the use of Botox® for the management of muscles that cause wrinkles and pull the lower face down. This results in a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles and lifting of the face. And if you suffer from migraine headaches it helps that too.
Botox Is Most Commonly Used on the Wrinkles Between the Eyebrows
Botox is a neuromodulator meaning it acts by affecting nerve impulse that cause muscles to contract. There are now other neuromodulators on the market namely Xeomin and Dysport which act in a similarly magical way to reduce wrinkles.

Botox | A history
More than any other procedure, botulinum toxin type A, more commonly known as Botox, has come to represent the public’s fascination with cosmetic surgery. Originally identified as a toxin from Clostridium botulinum bacteria, Botox was first used in 1977 to treat strabismus, a problem with the eye muscles. The Food and Drug Administration approved it in 1989 for this purpose. When it was later used to treat uncontrolled muscle spasms in the face, patients had fewer wrinkles in the skin overlying the treated muscle. Doctors started using Botox for cosmetic reasons in 1996, and the FDA approved this use in 2002.
