If botulinum toxin or Botox is reported about in the media, it is primarily about cosmetic interventions and applications in the field of aesthetic surgery. However, Botox against acne is an equally promising field of application and is meanwhile recommended and used by a number of dermatologists. It is not only about the external appearance, but also the suffering that accompanies acne, which is noticeably alleviated by targeted injections.
When Botox is used to treat acne, in most cases it is an injection that is used to inhibit sebum production. To reduce sebum production, the small muscles that help produce skin lipids are calmed. The result is a reduction in the size of the pores and a lesser shine to the skin. The well-known US blogger Perez Hilton has already publicised the therapy on the internet, and medical research from Australia and the USA confirms the positive effect. A study by the New York University School of Medicine is particularly significant, according to which sebum production was reduced by 75 percent after one week, and even by 80 percent after one month, and 24 out of 25 patients were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with the treatment.
The effect of Botox against acne sets in after about 24 hours and lasts for up to four months. As soon as the effect wears off, injections can be given again. It is important that the Botox is diluted with a saline solution so that the facial expressions are not paralysed.
Scars caused by acne can also be tightened and sometimes even removed with Botox. The substance is injected next to the affected areas so that the resulting tightening can lead to the disappearance of the scar tissue. Ideally, a filler is also used to achieve completely smooth skin.
Botox against acne is applied by means of punctual injections on precisely defined areas of the skin. Of course, a precise examination is always carried out beforehand and minor haematomas may occur in rare cases after the treatment.
