Safety of botulinum toxin
The safety of the Type A botulinum toxin is proven and supported by numerous scientific studies. The treatment is completely safe, due to the fact that during the procedure, the doctor applies small amounts of the preparation in precisely defined places, exerting only temporary effects on specific groups of facial muscles.
