New Study Finds BOTOX® Cosmetic May Rejuvenate SkinJune 10, 2015
New research findings show that BOTOX® Cosmetic injections may have added rejuvenation benefits for your skin. While BOTOX® Cosmetic is used as primarily an anti-aging treatment, researchers are studying other beneficial effects, including whether the injectable may actually help promote the production of elastin and collagen, proteins that keep your skin firm.
As you age, repeated facial expressions eventually lead to wrinkles. Also with age, your skin’s levels of elastin and collagen decline. BOTOX® Cosmetic can have an antioxidant effect for your skin, giving it time to reproduce those elastin and collagen proteins, all the while decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.
At Chevy Chase Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide range of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures including BOTOX® Cosmetic to address the following:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- “Frown lines” between the eyebrows
- Lines in your nasolabial folds
