Recent research has shown that a common management strategy for facial lines can also improve skin quality. BOTOX is a muscle relaxing injection used for many years to lighten the lines caused on the face by the action of the underlying muscles. It is great for lines in the frown area above the nose, the crows feet to the sides of the eyes and in the forehead.
In their paper from Toronto, Drs James Bonaparte and David Ellis showed that BOTOX treatments led to definite improvements in skin stretchiness and elasticity (how the skin bounced back from stretching). The effect lasted 4 months after each injection and was reproducible with ongoing treatments. Details of their study can be found here
BOTOX is a safe and trusted management strategy for facial lines and now to improve skin quality.
