New Research Says Botox Provides Long-Term Skin Benefits

Botox Skin Benefits

A breaking new study reports that Botox cosmetic treatments could provide long-term, youthful skin benefits.

Elasticity within the skin is what helps keep that youthful glow, but when we creep into our later 30s and 40s, that elasticity begins to diminish slowly.

As the medical aesthetics industry continues to grow, more men and women are looking for wrinkle-busting treatments to restore their skin.

Botox Provides Long-Term Skin Benefits

This new study followed 43 women who gained Botox injections. After four months, these women saw “significant improvement” in elasticity. But how does this work, exactly? Magic? Nope.

Botox, approved by the FDA in 2001 for its cosmetic benefits, is injected into targeted muscles within the facial aesthetic. Once injected, Botox temporarily limits movement within these muscles, causing fine lines and wrinkles to soften.

In this specific study, a device was able to test the skin on the women who received Botox, measuring the skin’s elasticity. Botox helps maintain this elasticity by constricting muscle movement, therefore benefiting the skin in a youthfully rejuvenated way.

“Botox could be more than just a quick fix and could possibly provide long-term benefits,” Good Morning America reported.

Currently, botulinum toxin injections can be used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and forehead furrows. Patients with medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis and chronic migraines can also benefit from Botox injections.
