Anti-wrinkle treatments are often referred to by the term Botox®. Botulinum toxin has numerous uses, including:
– relaxing certain muscles of the face to reduce the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles
– treating a gummy smile
– jawline slimming
– treating hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
– reducing headaches
There are different names for the anti-wrinkle treatments we tend to call ‘Botox®’. They all contain the neurotoxin, botulinum toxin, produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
