Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of facial lines. It is FDA approved for the lines between the eyebrows known as the glabellar lines. Essentially, Botox decreases muscle activity by blocking the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction.  Therefore, muscle activity is reduced or stopped temporarily after the injection of Botox Cosmetic.
