Botulinum Toxin

Der Med

Treatment with botulinum toxin is based on its property of blocking the nerve receptors. It causes the paresis of muscles lasting for 3-4 months and blocks the sweat production for 5-9 months. Botulinum toxin is used in aesthetic dermatology for correction of mimic wrinkles of the face (mainly the horizontal wrinkles of the forehead, glabellar frown lines, periorbital “crow’s feet”) and the neck as well as in treatment of excessive sweating (mainly auxiliary and hands’ sweating).
