This chapter contains material  that is not ‘core’ to the main purpose of skincancer909, but may be of interest to some medical students (and others).

Aesthetic use of botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin is not a treatment for  skin cancer, but there is some overlap with the broad topic of  skin cancer  in at least two respects. First, both skin surgery and botox are used in aesthetic dermatology practice, and for a minority of practitioners there is considerable overlap in the skill base of these techniques. And skin surgery is always relevant to any discussion of skin cancer. Second, and more importantly for medical students (with an interest), the video teachers you relevant  anatomy and some of the procedural hazards relevant to any skin cancer surgery on the face. It is however, optional.
