While many of us think of Botox® as a potent wrinkle reducer. And some know that it originated as a treatment for migraine headaches. Now Botox® is being studied for actual skin rejuvenation!
Botox for Skin Rejuvenation
A recent study released in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery (published online May 21, 2015) showed that Botox® not only relaxes muscles, but also rejuvenates aging skin. Intrinsic changes were seen after an injection of Botox® that actually altered collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, which not only makes the skin look less wrinkled but also makes it appear younger overtime. Botox® softens the skin and makes it look more radiant.
While this is a smaller-scale study, the results seem promising and point to the fact that more research is needed to determine other possible indications and benefits of Botox.
