Botulinum type A is a bacterial protein which relaxes the treated muscles by blocking the nerve impulses and so smoothes the skin. It can be used for the prevention and reduction of wrinkle depth in mimic caused wrinkles such as horizontal forehead wrinkles (worry lines), frown (glabellar lines), smile lines (crows feet), nose wrinkles (bunny lines) and lip wrinkles. Also a hanging corner of the mouth (marionette lines, today also called Merkel folds), gingival smile (Gummy smile), a so-called cobblestone chin, neck cords and tooth grinding (bruxism, masseteric) can be successfully treated with botulinum toxin. The position of the nose bridge, eyebrows position and eye slot (big eye) can be changed by a minimal doses.
