How Does Botox Work?

Read Transcript

Botox is a brand name for a type of a Botulinum toxin that's used to relax muscles. The way that Botox, Zieman and Dysport, the three brands of Bosch Wine and Toxin we have commercially available in the United States work, is by slowing the transmission of the message from the nerve to the muscle and that's how we can use it in a very specific way to just relax the muscle that we'd like to.

It also works to slow the message from the nerve to sweat glands and that's why it can work for people with excessive sweating.
