Oily skin can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. Many people suffer from oily skin, but now there is a way to help subside overactive oil glands. So does Botox stop oily skin? Absolutely, and there is mounting evidence to prove it.
WHAT IS OILY SKIN?
Oily skin happens when your sebaceous glands work in overdrive. This can result in producing too much oil, leaving pores blocked and increased risk of acne breakouts. There is no amount of face powder or blotting papers that will stop the oil production.
Studies have found that Botox can reduce the amount of sebum you produce. It may also reduce pore size, making it a popular solution amongst people seeking relief from oily skin or who want a flawless, porcelain like complexion.
IS THIS TREATMENT DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL BOTOX?
Yes, this treatment differs from traditional Botox treatments. Traditional Botox is for muscle paralysis to soften fine lines and wrinkles. If you’re receiving Botox for oily skin, you’ll get it via an intradermal injection. In other words, the Botox will be injected directly into your skin rather than under it via a microneedle stamping method. Very small amounts of Botox are used (MICRO-TOX) to stop the production of oil and shrink your arrector pili muscles. You won’t need to worry about facial paralysis if you undergo this treatment as it won’t affect your facial muscles. It usually takes around 30 minutes for this treatment to be administered. We offer add ons such as Stem Cells and PRF to give your treatment a boost in anti aging results.
WHEN DO YOU SEE DECREASE IN OILINESS?
It will take up to seven days for the effects to become visible. You will see total results with oil reduction within 3 weeks.
WHY HAS BOTOX BECOME SO POPULAR?
Botox has become widely known to treat many conditions on and off label. As well as reducing oily skin, it can lift the corners of your mouth, correct gummy smiles, soften square jaw lines and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is also used for TMJ, Teeth grinding, Migraines, Hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms, armpits and scalp) and for dancers’ feet for comfort while dancing. Botox is also gaining popularity with men over the years and is also FDA approved. This treatment is safe and effective and has very little contraindications making it possible for almost anyone to receive the benefits of Botox.
