Botolinum toxin or as it is known, Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Botulinum toxin's main claim to fame is that it will appear to iron out wrinkles and lines in aging faces. More than just a vanity product, it can be useful for treating a variety of medical conditions ranging from eye squints to migraines, excess sweating to leaky bladders. There are currently over 20 different medical conditions that botulinum toxin is being used to treat with more being discovered regularly.

As Botulinum blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can't contract. That makes the wrinkles relax and soften. Botulinum is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to botulinum.
Getting Botulinum takes only a few minutes and doesn't require anesthesia. Botulinum is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect, and it is best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.
People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease should not use Botulinum. Since Botulinum doesn't work for all wrinkles, you should consult with a doctor first.
After Botox injection, it is expected to experience discomfort and pain at the needle-sites. Aspirin can safely heal the bruising. As alcohol can intensify any bruising after having Botox injections, it would be recommended to avoid it for a couple of days before and after the treatment. In this regard, and for better result, patients are asked to avoid flying and strenuous activities after the treatment.
The effects from Botulinum will last four to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. Over the time, the lines and wrinkles often appear less severe because the muscles are being trained to relax.
