Will BOTOX® Cosmetic Improve Skin Elasticity?

A new study has shown that BOTOX® Cosmetic may actually help improve skin elasticity and pliability with regular use. The study, conducted on 48 women who were receiving BOTOX® injections for the first time, found that a single treatment improvedthe youthful quality of the participants’ skin by increasing elastic recoil and stretchiness. However, maintaining this elasticity required repeat injections at four month intervals.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not considering a long-term solution for facial rejuvenation, but it does offer consistent and reliable short-term results. If you are looking for a longer lasting treatment, Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña will likely recommend a facelift, brow lift, or other surgical option. Some dermal fillers may also produce more lasting results, but these, like BOTOX®, cannot provide the same long-term results offered by surgical alternatives.

Dr. Peña is a board-certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience helping men and women in the Naples area reach their aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation he will listen closely to your concerns, assess your facial appearance, and provide you honest information about all of your options.
