Why is it worth it?
Botulinum toxin is a very strong natural toxin inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for transmitting impulses between nerves and muscles. Botulinum toxin blocks connections between nerve endings and the muscles they innervate, i.e. it blocks the so-called nerve-muscle synapses. This prevents the paralysed muscle from contracting. Botulinum is equally effective for men and women. In medicine, botulinum toxin is used to treat various diseases such as strabismus, neurological diseases with excessive muscle tension, as well as excessive sweating. Very low toxin concentrations, which do not affect other parts of the nervous system apart from the area where the injection was given, are used to eliminate mimic wrinkles.
