We have long suspected it and seen it anecdotally in our patients, but now it is official:
Long term use of BOTOX can reverse the aging process by permanently erasing the forehead expression lines and remodeling the skin, by allowing it to ‘rest’ and renew.
This confirmation is published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology by Dr Patrick Bowler, London, UK. Dr. Bowler studied subjects whose glabellar (11’s), forehead and periorbital (crow’s feet) facial lines were treated with Botox Cosmetic for over a 7-year period. At the end of the 7-year study, it was found that skin quality continued to improve over time, revealing smoother, enhanced, yet natural look. Effacement (erasure) of non-reducible forehead lines suggested epidermal and dermal remodeling of skin over long-term treatment.
There was no evidence of development of any new wrinkles secondary to Botox use. Subjects continue to report high levels of treatment satisfaction. No safety issues were raised in the study.
