A topical cream that promises to relax muscles to eliminate deep wrinkles without quarterly painful injections of botulinum toxin sounds too good to be true — and it is.
"Topical Botox doesn't make it through the skin," says Dr. Hollmig. "It's just a moisturizer."
Dr. Draelos put it more bluntly: "It doesn't work."
Verdict: Save your money, and get on the real thing instead.
