Botulinum toxin is a product used in many fields of medicine. In aesthetic medicine, it is used to treat wrinkles and excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis.
Botulinum toxin is a naturally paralysing agent produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing any contraction and thus any wrinkles. The wrinkles in the upper face can therefore be treated, such as the frown lines between the eyebrows. Contrary to the hyaluronic acid, Botulinum toxin is not a filling agent. It is impossible to fill out wrinkles or increase lip size with such a product.
