Botulinum protein for other uses besides wrinkles
The American Academy of Neurology guideline published in the April 18, 2016, online issue of Neurology® has several uses for botulinum toxin. It provides guidelines on the use of botulinum toxin for spasticity, cervical dystonia, blepharospasm and migraine headache, based on recent research. The protein is commonly used to relax muscles and soften the appearance of skin wrinkles in aesthetic medicine. Botox ® is a very popular form of this botulinum protein.
