The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, commonly referred to by its product name Botox®, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. Two other similar products are now on the market, called Dysport® and Xeomin®. The toxins blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox®, or the other neuromodulators are effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
