We all know the effects of Botox on muscles, but what if any are it’s effects on a person’s skin. It seems there is a lessening of the wrinkles with repeated injections of Botox. So does Botox affect the elastic properties of skin?
Two researchers from Canada set out to answer that question. They took 48 women and injected the glabella, supraorbital area and the lateral orbits. They found a significant effect of the Botox on the elasticity of the skin. These improvements in the visco-elastic properties of the skin can last up to 3-4 months past injection.
