The treatment

The overactive muscles that are responsible for mimetic wrinkles are attenuated with small doses 

of botulinum toxin. This treatment lasts for 3 to 6 months and can then be repeated.

The treatment of glabellar frowns with botulinum toxin can, at the same time, ameliorate migraines.

A good success rate can also be achieved with the treatment of hyperhidrosis in the axilla after injecting botulinum toxin.
