Botox® (Botolunim Toxin-A) is a medicine that relaxes muscles by inhibiting the secretion of acetylcholine needed for muscle contraction.
As you grow older your skin becomes less elastic due to the loss of colagen and reduced vascularization of tissues. Wrinkles (rhytids) occur when certain muscles become more dominant and the skin does not have the ability to be as elastic in response to these muscle contractions. This is why certain patients of differing ages start to form wrinkles.
