Botulinum toxin A for relaxing wrinkle lines as well as for hyperhidrosis and mesotherapy. This is a popular treatment that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet near the eyes. Injections of botulinum toxin block the nerve signals to the injected muscle. Without a signal, the treated muscle is not able to contract, resulting in diminished unwanted facial wrinkles.
