Although the use of Botox has been a revolution in the treatment of wrinkles caused by contraction of facial muscles and it has replaced some surgical procedures and invasive interventions, unfortunately, there has been a misleading picture of Botox outcomes in the community and people have high expectations.


Botox is a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum which can cause poisoning in canned food. The toxin can limit facial muscle contraction for a certain time and can reduce facial wrinkles.

Botox is in fact the type A toxin of this bacterium which has been standardized and gained therapeutic aspects and was approved by the FDA in 2002.

It should be noted that Botox is effective on wrinkles caused by muscle contraction and does not affect wrinkles due to sagging skin, decreased under the skin volume, or aging.
