How does Allergan Botox work? 

As mentioned before, the Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin. These toxins attack the neurological system, interfering with the nerve signaling pathways that cause muscular contraction. This is how the medication temporarily paralyzes the muscles. 

Nerves produce a chemical message called acetylcholine at the junction where nerve terminals meet muscle cells for any muscle to contract. Acetylcholine binds to receptors on muscle cells, causing them to contract or shorten. 

Botox injections block the release of acetylcholine, which causes muscle cells to contract. In this way, the toxin aids in the relaxation of the muscles.
