About Botox® for Facial Pore Reduction
Botox® has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective cosmetic treatment for wrinkles, reducing fine lines, and other facial aberrations. For people with large facial pores or healing acne scars, Botox® may be useful in reducing or eliminating their appearance.
How Does Botox® Pore Reduction Work?
Small amounts of Botox® are injected directly under the skin, in the upper most layers. The expansion of our pores and shaping of other facial aberrations are controlled by small muscles. Botox® helps to both relax these muscles and tighten the skin, resulting in the desired lessening or elimination of large pores. This can most commonly be done along the cheeks, nose, and forehead.
Is Botox® Pore Reduction Right For Me?
Most patients can expect to maintain the correction they see early after treatment. However, every patient’s skin is unique and therefore we recommend starting slowly with a conservative amount and continuing treatment as needed to get the best results.
Like other cosmetic muscle relaxers, Botox® is administered by way of injection. You may need more than one treatment to attain lasting results. The treatment can also last from three to six months depending on your skin type and how well you care for your skin.
