Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a treatment that originated in the medical world. It was originally used to treat patients who had muscle spasms, like the kind of spasms people occasionally experience in the eye for a short period of time. However, if spasms like this recur on a regular basis or continue for a long period of time they become debilitating. Doctors noticed that an application of botulinum toxin to the spasming muscle, enabled it to relax, meaning a temporary relief to the issue of muscle spasms
After the discovery of the botulinum toxin’s medical application, pioneers in facial aesthetics began to use it effectively to relax muscles within the face. By so doing the muscles would allow the skin to take back it’s shape also. Where this became particularly apparent and useful in the world of facial aesthetics is when applied to muscles in the face, it allowed them to relax, which then in some cases smoothed out wrinkles in the skin! For this reason Botox is currently used in a wide range of facial aesthetic treatments to reduce wrinkle lines on the face without the need for a surgical procedure.
