Botulinum toxin type A preparation is a purified protein obtained from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
This procedure is the only method of prevention and treatment of facial wrinkles, which acts on the main cause - facial muscles. Using injections of botulinum connections between nerves and muscles are chemically blocked, which causes a temporary weakening of the muscles around the face and to prevent wrinkling and folding of the skin lying above them, as well as lead to the loosening and smoothing.
Using a similar locking mechanism of nerve connections in the skin of botulinum toxin may also be helpful in treating hyperhidrosis.
