Yes, that’s right. We have noticed with all the Botox that we do in our office that many of our acne patients had a significant reduction in the number of their breakouts within the Botox-treated areas. We have concluded that Botox has an effect on the oil glands that reduces the production of oil in the treated areas. This is most likely similar to the effect of Botox on the sweat glands, which results in decreased sweating. We have used dilute solutions of Botox in severely acne-prone areas with very good results. This treatment is not for everyone however it is a promising new addition to our fight against acne.
