    What is botulinum toxin and how does it work?

    Botulinum toxin, also known as botox, is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected locally into muscle tissue, it blocks the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, leading to a temporary weakening of muscle contractions in that area. This effect helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and gently reshapes the contours of the face.

    Application of botulinum toxin in aesthetic dermatology:

    • Wrinkle reduction: botulinum toxin is most commonly used to reduce wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows (frown lines) and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
    • Sculpting facial contours: botulinum toxin application can help to create more prominent facial features such as the jawline, chin and jawline, thus achieving a harmonious appearance.
    • Treatment of hyperhidrosis: Botulinum toxin is used to treat excessive sweating, especially in the armpit and palm area. The injections block the nerve signals that cause the sweat glands to become overactive.
    • Raising eyebrows and opening eyes: Botulinum toxin is used to lift the eyebrows and open the eyes, which can provide a rejuvenated appearance and more expressive eyes.

    Current trends in botulinum toxin application:

    • Preventive application: younger individuals are more likely to seek preventive application of botulinum toxin to minimize wrinkle formation at an early stage. This approach helps to maintain a youthful appearance and prevent significant wrinkles in the future.
    • Combination with other procedures: aesthetic dermatologists often combine botulinum toxin application with dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid
