It is the commercial name for botulinum toxin. This is a chemical substance made by bacteria and tiny doses of it are
injected into the small muscled which help control facial expressions. With the help of this substance, these muscles
are paralyzed thus causing the skin around that area to appear unwrinkled and smooth while the muscles that have

This is considered as a safe procedure though pregnant women and those suffering from neurological conditions are
Publish Article recommended to refrain from undergoing it. Also if your wrinkles are the result of sun damage and aging and have
not taken place because of muscle contraction, it is advisable that you do not use this injection. The procedure is
also largely considered painless because the needles used to inject your facial muscles are very fine. However some

will have undergone at least two years of training in this specialization, so you cannot really underestimate his skills.
