(Before and After)

The Science

Botox blocks acetylcholine release, which causes muscle contraction and wrinkles. The medical term for the action of Botox is selective muscle denervation. Normally, to make a muscle contract, a nerve sends a signal to the muscle. The point where the nerve and the muscle meet is called the neuromuscular junction. When the signal gets to the neuromuscular junction, acetylcholine is released from the nerve side of the junction and binds to the muscle side of the junction causing more chemical reactions that make the muscle contract.
