Botox® remains one of the most well-known cosmetic treatments to this day. Recognized for both its cosmetic and therapeutic purposes, it remains the #1 best-selling product of its kind in the beauty space. It received its second FDA approval in 2002 and continues to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Many patients are surprised that Botox® is more than just an anti-aging procedure. It can also help individuals suffering from severe acne and large pores. Acne occurs when hair follicles clog up with oil and dead skin cells. These clogged pores can bring pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads to the skin’s surface, causing physical and emotional distress.
Physically, pus-filled lumps and nodules can be very painful. Cysts can also scar the skin, leaving permanent marks on individuals’ faces when left untreated. Emotionally, acne can have a negative effect on someone’s mental health, and flare-ups can leave patients feeling less confident in their natural appearance. In a study by the American Academy of Dermatology Association, researchers found that people with acne can also develop depression, anxiety, and poor self-image.
Typically, those who suffer from acne try over-the-counter creams and antibiotics. While these treatments can help some, many patients need other remedies. This is where Botox® comes in.
BOTOX® TREATMENTS FOR ACNE
At Beverly Hills Aesthetics, we offer Intradermal Botox® for large pores and acne. Intradermal Botox® is specifically designed to minimize pores, and these injections reduce the arrector pili muscles in the face from producing excessive amounts of oil and sweat. This process prevents recurring acne breakouts and gives patients’ skin a poreless, matte finish.
There is some confusion as to how Intradermal Botox® works. Unlike other cosmetic Botox® treatments, this procedure does not affect the muscles that target facial expressions. Instead, it is directly injected into the arrector pili muscles, which are attached to the hair follicles that clog up with oil. Botulinum toxin A, the main ingredient in Intradermal Botox®, keeps the sweat glands from being triggered.
So, what should patients expect when receiving Botox® treatments for acne? Aligning with Dr. Assassa’s emphasis on minimally-invasive treatments, it is a quick and easy non-surgical procedure. Intradermal Botox® only takes a few minutes and does not require local or general anesthesia. Patients are able to return to their daily schedules with only minimal discomfort, if any at all. The results of Intradermal Botox® can also be seen as early as 3-4 days after the procedure takes place. Maximum results appear within two weeks post-treatment.
BOTOX® FOR ACNE: BRINGING SELF-CONFIDENCE BACK
Botox® treatments for acne are safe and effective ways to fight breakouts and bring self-confidence in patients back. Our founder, Dr. Sam Assassa, believes in bringing his patients’ natural beauty to the forefront. In an interview, he says that the beauty industry would improve with a “less is more” mentality.
“Beauty is about keeping it safe and natural,” he says.
We, as humans, tend to be overly critical of our physical appearance. About 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies and choose dieting strategies to achieve their “ideal shape.” In another survey, 40% of women and 20% of men say that they would consider cosmetic surgery in the future. More significant issues like societal expectations and the media can negatively impact one’s body image daily.
Yes, we are a cosmetic surgery center. However, our team wants to help you love the skin that you’re in—not cover it up.
Dr. Assassa says that true beauty means keeping things simple and natural. Botox® for Acne is a safe and simple way to bring your self-confidence back.
“As they say, ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder.’ You have to feel beautiful inside and out.”
With every service we provide, we hope to change the tides of the modern beauty industry by achieving healthy and harmonious results.
