What is Botox?
A bacterium named Clostridium botulinum secretes a protein which is used in botox practices. This material blocks electrical conduction between nerves and muscles so, decreases or eliminates functionality of muscle in that region. When the muscle loses its functionality, it can not contract and wrinkles on the skin decreases or disappears completely. Meanwhile skin finds an opportunity to recover.
