Pores are essential for keeping the skin soft and hydrated. However, when overly large pores are present it can make the skin oily, look rough, uneven and can be unflattering. Even the application of makeup may be difficult and worsen the skin textural differences.
Intradermal Botox represents the latest technique for lessening the production of skin oils. In fact, Intradermal Botox is the only treatment which directly targets the pores, the center of oil production. When all of the pores reduce in size, the surface area of the skin is reduced and the skin is tightened, creating a lift effect.
The science behind intradermal Botox is to target the muscles which control pore size, the erector pili muscle. When these muscles are effected by Botox, the pore size actually will decrease in size, and thus, reduce oil production.
Intradermal Botox therapy can be used to decrease lessen oil production, sweat production, decrease pore size and even decrease red and brown marks after acne. Fine lines in areas once thought to be off limits for botox (below the eyes) can now be injected and soften over several weeks.
