    3. A person who has skin abnormalities such as infections, skin diseases, scars, etc. at the site to be administered

Within 4 weeks of screening: Drugs with muscle relaxation action, such as muscle relaxants, spectinomycin hydrochloride, aminoglycoside antibiotics, polypeptide antibiotics, tetracycline antibiotics, lincomycin antibiotics, anticholinergics, benzodiazepines and similar drugs, and benzamide drugs [However, for muscle relaxants, benzodiazepines and similar drugs, a person who has stably maintained administration of them from within 4 weeks from the time of screening (the same drug is maintained without changing the usage and dose), and is not expected to change in ingredients, usage, and dose of them during the clinical trial period can be enrolled]
    2. A person who has administered aspirin or NSAIDs within 7 days before administration of the investigational product (However, low-dose aspirin (100 mg/day or less) administered for antithrombotic purposes is permitted)

    1. Within 48 weeks of screening: Tissue augmentation
    2. Within 24 weeks of screening: A person who has undergone facial plastic surgery including glabellar lines such as brow lift, dermal resurfacing, or peeling, etc.
  5. A person with a history of surgery or treatment around the orbit (except for double eyelid surgery, epicanthal fold (Mongolian fold) correction)

  6. A person who is planning to undergo facial cosmetic procedures such as dermal filler, photorejuvenation, chemical peeling, and dermabrasionduring the clinical trial period

  7. PT_BTA_P3_21 (Clinical Trial Plan Number) A person who received similar drugs for clinical trials such as botulinum toxin A and B after visiting the end of phase 3 clinical trials)

  8. A person who is expected to administer botulinum toxin formulations other than this investigational product during the clinical trial period

  9. A person with a history of hypersensitivity or allergy to the components of the investigational product (botulinum toxin formulations and serum albumin, etc.)

  10. A person with a history of alcohol or drug addiction

  11. A person who, in the investigator's judgment, may affect clinical trial participation or objective efficacy evaluation results, due to anxiety disorders or other significant psychiatric disorders (e.g., severe depression)

    * Appropriate contraceptive methods

    2. Implantation of an intrauterine device or intrauterine system: A copper loop, hormone-containing intrauterine system
    3. Both men (condoms) and women (contraceptive diaphragms, vaginal sponges or cervical caps) use physical barrier methods together
    4. Surgical sterilization procedure/surgery: Bilateral tubal ligation, vasectomy, etc.
  13. Pregnant or lactating women

  14. A person with serious comorbidities (e.g., malignant tumors, immunodeficiency (decreased immune function), renal disease, liver disease, heart disease, respiratory disease, etc.) or acute diseases that are unsuitable for participation in the clinical trial as judged by the investigator

  15. A person who participated in other clinical trials/clinical device trials within 30 days prior to screening and received administration/treatment of investigational products/devices, or a person for whom the longer period has not passed between the above period and 5 times the half-life of the investigational product in the clinical trial in which they participated

  16. Others who are judged inappropriate to participate in this clinical trial by the investigator
