Bounce in Your Skin! By April Harrison, MPAS, PA-C
We know Botox can reduce wrinkles, but new research* finds it may have long term benefits on the structure of the skin too. Forty-eight women who had never had Botox were treated between the brows and crow’s feet. Their skin was measured for elasticity and all areas showed increase in skin pliability and elastic recoil. The lead researcher of the study hypothesized that our skin may have receptors that interact with Botox causing the production of more collagen, elastin, and other substances that smooth and firm the skin.
After 11 years in clinic, I have observed this effect myself with smaller appearing pores and smoother forehead skin when this area is treated. This new information has long-reaching benefits as repeated botulinum toxin injections may improve the appearance of the skin in the long term.
