Although the most common belief about botilinum toxin is its snake venom, it is actually not true. Botilinum toxin is a toxin obtained from bacteria called “Clostridium botulinum”. The function of botulinum toxin is to block the work of the mimic muscles by blocking the transmission from the nerve endings to the muscles, and as a result, to prevent skin wrinkles on the face.
Another frequent and effective place of use is the hypertrophy of the masseter muscle that helps us squeeze our jaw, that is, it becomes too strong and grows. Botox, made in the proper dose, both shrinks the muscle and reveals a thinner appearance on the cheek and reduces the problem of clenching.
