Application of botulinum toxin - BOTOX
Botulinum toxin, more commonly known as botox, is a natural substance produced artificially under various brand names, such as the well-known botox or Dysport.
The concentrations used in corrective medicine are diluted thousands of times compared with those found naturally. Botulotoxin type A blocks the nerve endings in a muscle and reduces facial wrinkles, especially between the eyebrows and around the eyes, but it can also be used to reduce excessive sweating under the arms, or on the palms or feet.
Botulinum toxin has a series of other uses as well.
