The application of the Botulinum toxin (BT) in the low third of the face needs anatomical precise knowledge and rigorous training due to the complex muscular interaction with the manifestations of the expression and of the mime, principally of the nose and of the mouth. To know his indications in this part of the face can be a good therapeutic complement for Aesthetic Surgery and for example, with the use of laser resurfacing in cutaneous rejuvenation or together with dermal fillers. Other times, treatment with BT can be a good option itself, as alternative to more aggressive surgical technologies.
