Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin is nothing but a protein produced by the bacterium Costridium Botulinum.

Botulinum toxin works by inhibiting the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that controls muscle contractions. By blocking the release of acetylcholine in the muscles, the muscular spasms of the face are inhibited, reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. The result is the distension of the muscles and skin, which is achieved by smoothing the existing wrinkles but above all by preventing the formation of new wrinkles.

Also having direct action on the sweat glands, it is also used to reduce hyperhidrosis, i.e. excessive underarm sweating, of the hands or feet with very efficient results. The action of botulinum toxin is absolutely reversible. The duration of the effect is about six months but can vary greatly from subject to subject. The dosages to which it is used in our field are so low that no harmful effects of any kind are described in the literature. This substance has been used in medicine since 1980.
