Botox, can directly stop the flow of oil and thus help create a less oily complexion. My research has demonstrated that this can be an effective treatment. The biggest risk involved, is the accidental injection into the wrong layer. Injecting botox too superficially will lead to an ineffective treatment. Too deeply, and the consequence will be unintended muscle weakness.
It seems like everyday, a new use of Botulinum toxin, aka Botox, is discovered. Botox is a wonder drug because it affects a very simple cellular pathway, used by many different systems in the body. I think medical researchers have just reached the tip of the iceberg with potential therapies that Botox will treat. It is no wonder why we are living in the age of “Botox”.Disclaimer
