Botox is Botulinum toxin, which is a cosmetic treatment to eradicate acne scars. To run Botox through your body injecting technique is used. And these injections are mostly pushed in your facial muscles.
Injections can do more justice to stop the scars from recurring than any outer application of creams and random medication. Botunilum toxin relaxes the surrounding muscles and decelerates the growth of scars by pulling the wounds back and there are visible results in 2-4 months after application of Botox.
How Botox Works on Scars
Botox and Acne Scars
Acne scars which are alternatively called pockmarks, can exasperate many patients. Many doctors antagonise application of Botox calling it a potentially harmful toxin. However, some doctors themselves recommend using Botox over a patient with stubborn and ugly marks all over.
People also inject Botox in the facial skin to get rid of the wrinkles and athletes use to cut down excessive sweat.
How Botox work
Researchers argue that Botox can be combined with derminal fillers for a quick curb on the pockmarks, it eliminates the pockmarks from growing larger and brings back the skin to the smooth surface. Somewhere deep inside your skin, muscle contractions rope in acne scars. This is because the muscles have been tempted. Botox works to smooth and relax those muscles thus there remains limited stress on the tissue and that is less visible. Botox needs to be entwines with a filler because it doesn’t work as one. Had fillers used with Botox, they make for a perfect eradication of acne scars. But only a handful few types of scars reap the fruit of this combination.
Botox can be used to squeeze out excess oil and sebum that triggers the cloggy skin pores thus acne. As it has been proved fitting solutions towards this issue, researches are still through with the process of further improvement of Botox treatments.
Application of Botox
Botox are meant to be injected into your facial muscles to hold back your youth or curb the scars. Though painful but this is a hugely effective treatment. And one of the most sought after ones. There are looming concerns about the fall outs of Botox treatment. In some cases, Botox have learned to harm the skin from within whereas in other cases people have been largely benefited by this treatment. Effects of Botox last for 6 months at the most. Dermal fillers are also available in wide spread and these are temporary. Fillers are responsible to fill acne scars.
What Doctors say
FDA is the most sought after Botox in all doctors’ view. FDA application is called “Off-label” use. If there is any further aggravation and worsening in the scars by muscle action, Botox drives the muscles weak thus improving the scars. So in certain situations, Botox have been largely helpful.
Some Hypertrophic or large scars or keloid scars are also healed, that is how reports thus far suggest.
Don’t treat the scars with topical silicone, pressure, injected steroids, surgery and and radiation therapy to worse.
In some recent reports dealing with numbers, Botox have been proven fairly helpful however.
