A breaking new study reports that Botox cosmetic treatments could provide long-term, youthful skin benefits. Elasticity within the skin is what helps keep that youthful glow, but when we creep into our later 30s and 40s, that elasticity begins to slowly diminish. This new study followed 43 women who gained Botox injections. After four months, these women saw “significant improvement” in elasticity.
But how does this work, exactly? Magic? Nope. Botox, approved by the FDA in 2001 for its cosmetic benefits, is injected into targeted muscles within the facial aesthetic. Once injected, Botox temporarily limits movement within these muscles, causing fine lines and wrinkles to soften.
In this specific study, a device was able to test the skin on the women who received Botox, measuring the skin’s elasticity. Botox helps maintain this elasticity by constricting muscle movement, therefore benefiting the skin in a youthfully rejuvenated way.
“Botox could be more than just a quick fix and could possibly provide long-term benefits,” Good Morning America reported.
