Botulinum toxin type A injections are one of the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed to treat facial lines and wrinkles, called frown lines, on the forehead.
Botulinum toxin is produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum, which is normally responsible for causing the illness known as botulism. However, in small doses, botulinum toxin type A can be used safely to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. The toxin is purified and the formulations are marketed by different companies with names such as onabotulinumtoxin A and abobotulinumtoxin A, etc.
In this animation, they will all be referred to generically as botulinum toxin type A. With little downtime and almost immediate results, botulinum toxin type A can help you restore a smoother, more youthful appearance to the face.
