What is botulinum toxin?

It is a poison that is used to paralyse muscles. In small volumes it is not harmful and can be used to selectively target different muscle groups in the body. Its use in facial rejuvenation in particular is now widespread. By paralysing certain muscles one can prevent the action and prevent the wrinkles that form overlying them.
