Botox is a substance made from a purified form of the bacteria clostridium botulinum, that is injected into lines lines around the eyes, on the forehead and between the eyebrows, virtually erasing them. Botox is injected, however, it works entirely differently from dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® or Radiesse®. Rather than plumbing up facial creases as fillers do, Botox temporarily paralyzes movement of the muscles used to make unwanted crow’s feet and frown lines. It is years of repeated muscle contractions (frowning and squinting) that creates lines in the first place. By preventing muscles from further ingraining these creases, Botox not only temporarily eliminates them, but additionally prevents them from worsening.
