Botulinum toxin – is a natural, potent toxin that inhibits the release of acetylcholine – a neurotransmitter responsible for the transmission of impulses between nerves and muscles. Botulinum toxin works by blocking the connections between the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract.
It only works within the muscles to which it was injected, while the remaining muscles are functioning as before.
