Reducing Pore Size with Botox
Botulinum toxin is a common treatment for sculpting the face and reducing fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily deactivating overactive muscles on the face.
However, one little known fact about botulinum toxin is that it can also be useful to effectively reduce enlarged pores and improve oiliness, giving you a more refined, smoother skin.
How does Botox pore reduction work?
Botox, approved by FDA as safe and effective, is a treatment for fine line, wrinkles, and other facial abnormality. For people with large pores, Botox can be used to reduce the pores for a smoother appearance of the skin. By injecting tiny amounts of Botox under the skin, it helps to relax the muscles and tighten the skin, resulting in the elimination of large pores.
As the Botox only works superficially under the skin and not in the muscles, your facial movements will not be affected. When injected superficially in the dermis, it shrinks the pores and reduces oil production. You will notice that your skin becomes smoother and clearer, with noticeable improvements in your skin texture, after the treatment. With smoother, clearer skin, you will get less wrinkles and fine lines and fewer acne breakouts too.
Are there any side effects?
As this treatment may require several tiny injections on different areas of the face, you may get tiny red bumps on the face temporarily. The skin redness and swelling should subside within a couple of hours.
How often do I have to repeat this treatment?
Although you will see good results in 1 session, you will see better, longer-lasting results if you repeat the treatment for another 2-3 more sessions, 4 weeks apart.
