Botulinum toxin injection is a derivative of a purified protein that comes from the culture of a bacteria called "Clostridium Botulinum". Its use in aesthetic medicine is actually a coincidence. The primary medical use was to combat strabismus, facial spasms, and eyelid tics. These patients were found to have fewer wrinkles around the treated eye than on the other side. This noticed effect launched injections of this toxin (Botox) in the world of aesthetic medicine to reduce wrinkles. Botulinum toxin acts only on dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles of muscular origin. The injection relaxes the targeted muscles of the face by acting on the junction between the nerve and the muscle. The muscles naturally relax and wrinkles fade, this is how the botulinum toxin corrects the effects of time on the skin.Book Now
