It seems like every time I turn around there is a new indication for Botox. A recent study showed injections of botox could lessen the production of sebum. The study was conducted by Italian and Chinese researchers and involved 42 female subjects.

The sebum production returned to normal after 16 weeks. So it may be that Botox may be a new treatment modality for acne. This may be a new role in the therapy of patients who have acne that is refractive to normal therapy. However, at this point more questions remain and more studies are needed.
