Botox is a drug created on the basis of purified botulism neurotoxin A, which is used to smooth wrinkles and skin relief.

Botox injections are done by a plastic surgeon. Trusting the correction of wrinkles with the help of this drug to cosmetologists, that is, non-certified doctors, is dangerous to health and appearance.
