Botox is the most highly studied and published drug available today. Since its FDA approval 25 years ago, it's had over 20 different FDA approvals because we know in great detail how it works and can apply it in precise ways for many different medical and aesthetic concerns. Botox is my favorite rejuvenating and anti-aging treatment. It is the single most reliable and powerful treatment. When injected properly, it helps retrain muscles so you look natural. 
Botox is derived from the toxin secreted by particular bacteria.
