Botulinum toxins are used to relax the muscles that cause aging in the face and neck, which are responsible for the so-called “expression lines” or “expression wrinkles” and, recently, many other indications. 

Dynamic wrinkles are more evident in the upper half of the face, causing the so-called “crow’s feet”, forehead wrinkles that characterize “awe” or “surprise” and those located between the eyebrows (glabellar), that characterize “worry or concern”. However, this drug is also used on the lower half of the face, neck and décolleté area. By relaxing specific muscles, it can be used to improve gummy smile, the wrinkles of the neck and the décolleté area, asymmetries and facial paralysis.

Botulinum toxin showed to be effective in the treatment of excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, in various locations, such as the armpits, hands, face, trunk, etc. Recently, this medication showed to be effective in depressed patients.

The application of botulinum toxin is quick, taking only a few minutes. Delicate syringes with very fine needles are used.

Treatment must be repeated every four to six months, to ensure the maintenance and progression of improvements. For the treatment of excessive sweating, injections can be repeated every eight to ten months intervals.
