Botox is a drug that weakens or paralyzes muscle. In small doses, it can reduce skin wrinkles and help treat some muscle conditions.Botox is a protein made from botulinum toxin that the bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces. Botox injections are probably best known for reducing skin wrinkles. Botox can also help treat crossed eyes, eyelid spasms, excessive sweating, and some bladder disorders. Common facial areas people use Botox on include:
frown lines, also called glabellar lines or “elevens”
wrinkles around the eyes, known as crow’s feet
horizontal creases in the forehead
lines at the corners of the mouth
“cobblestone” skin on the chin

Normally Botulinum toxin is used by diluting the powder in saline and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue.It takes 24–72 hours for botulinum toxin to take effect. Rarely, it may take as long as 5 days for the full effects to take place.The effects may last for 3–12 months , depending on the treatment. Botox should be avoided during pregnancy or breastfeeding, or if they have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.
