How can I get rid of my wrinkles?

Botox is a nerve-blocker that has been used for over three decades to relax facial muscles. It is injected directly into the facial muscles that tense up and cause deep wrinkles, such as the forehead and eyebrow furrows (often called worry and frown lines) or crow’s feet. Botox blocks the nerve signals that cause these wrinkles, allowing them to relax and smooth out.
