BOTOX® has been used for years as a way to look younger with smoother, more vibrant skin. With more than 7 million people a year taking advantage of this cosmetic injectable, its proven results can speak for themself. While BOTOX® is most widely known because of its ability to remove wrinkles and smooth lines, doctors began to notice its effect on the symptoms of migraine patients, people with excessive sweating, and even the painful effects of TMJ.
Along the way, doctors also began to notice the amazing things BOTOX® can do to treat skin conditions. At The Spa at Naps, our team of highly-skilled skin specialists and doctors have treated many cases over the years using BOTOX®. Read on to learn about some of the common skin issues that respond well to treatments with BOTOX®.
Smooth Away Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Originally (and still), BOTOX® was created to temporarily relax or paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines. Also known as a neuromodulator, BOTOX® is made from tiny doses of a toxin found in a bacteria called botulinum, which has the incredible ability of temporarily disrupting the muscles that cause facial wrinkles when in movement.
BOTOX® softens and smooths wrinkles from around the eyes, frown lines, and lines around the nose and mouth. BOTOX® limits the muscle contractions that cause these wrinkles, giving the skin time to rest, relax, and repair.
BOTOX® injections have been used in dermatology to help control acne outbreaks on patients’ skin. As mentioned earlier, BOTOX® has a profound effect on helping to control excess sweating, which in turn can improve the appearance of pores and help reduce the amount of oil the skin produces. This means your skin is far less prone to acne breakouts.
When combined with dermal fillers, these two types of injectables can help calm acne breakouts and help smooth and refine the skin from the scarring of past acne breakouts.
Psoriasis and Eczema
Doctors have also found that BOTOX® can help treat skin irritations like psoriasis and eczema. Psoriasis is a skin disorder that manifests as bumpy red patches covered with white scales. This happens because skin cells multiply up to 10 times faster than average. With eczema, patients develop small, intensely itchy blisters that appear on the size of their hands and feet. In both cases, BOTOX® can be just what the doctor ordered, as it has been shown to help calm these skin conditions.
