How Botox 100IU Injection Works:
Botox 100IU Injection interacts with proteins present in the muscles and exocrine glands and blocks the release of Acetylcholine (ACh) into the space between neurons. This process inhibits the overactivity of cholinergic nerves and results in reduced cholinergic transmission. When locally injected, it suppresses the overactive nerves and relieves spasms and neurological conditions.
