Currently, botulinum toxin (BT) plays an important role in aesthetic-medical treatments of the face. This paper provides a didactical approach for practical training purposes, concerning the use of BT for facial rejuvenation when practising Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery.

This paper resumes the current knowledge about the use of TB injections in the upper third of the face.
