How could anyone love a deadly toxin produced by bacteria? Actually it’s not  the toxin I love it’s the effect it has.

You may not know that Toxin can be used to treat many ailments from vocal cord spasms to overactive bladders. The treatment I love best though is restoring balance to the face.

There is an art to injecting, in seeing the ways the muscle work together across a face. One muscle pulls and another opposes as if in a dance. Weaken one too much and the other will pull too hard. Used correctly in the right places in the right amounts, an improvement in facial balance can be achieved. A downturned smile can be brought gracefully up, a worried brow made to radiate calm.

What’s not to love?
