Botox as an Acne Treatment

Botox as an Acne Treatment

 

Nearly 50 million Americans have acne and those who don’t have experienced it at least once. With so many Americans suffering from this skin condition, it is not surprising that acne products are raking in over $1.4 billion annually. The question is, how come so many still have acne? What are they doing wrong? If you have acne, it is best to stay away from the following:

  • Overwashing
  • Tanning
  • Avoiding Moisturizer and Sunscreen
  • Using Too Many Products.
  • Picking and Squeezing

The trick, according to experts is to find the right products for your skin and to keep using them until the breakouts stop for good. If you have tried a range of products but none of them worked, it’s time to take a look at other options.

What Causes Acne?

Acne is caused by pimple-causing bacteria and these bacteria love the sebum (oil) on your skin. With the presence of too much oil, these nasty bacteria will thrive and when they reproduce, your pores will become inflamed and form pimples. This can be frustrating and can even cause ugly acne scars.

Botox Can Combat Acne

Botox can shrink your oil glands and reduce sebum production by around 30%, according to a recent study. This will starve pimple-causing bacteria and minimize acne in a matter of weeks. It must be noted that this treatment is not for everyone. It is best to talk to a dermatologist first so that you can make an informed decision about Botox as an acne treatment.
