Botox is the commercial name given to botulinum toxin, popularly known in aesthetic medicine for the great benefits it brings to those who seek eternal youth, effectively eliminating the appearance of facial wrinkles, temporarily tightening the muscles to avoid let them move. The most frequent use of this toxin occurs in areas such as: forehead, around the eyes and in expression lines in general.
