Botox 'reverses ageing process'

A new study has confirmed that botox injections really can change your skin for the better.

Research published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology looked at two patients whose frown lines and wrinkles were treated with the non-surgical cosmetic treatment.

Although only conducted on a small scale, the research indicated that botox caused an improvement in the quality of the patients' skin over the course of the seven-year study period.

The volunteers benefited from smoother, enhanced, yet natural-looking skin and there was no indication of any additional wrinkles forming.

Dr Patrick Bowler, from London's Court House Clinic, commented: "I have found that with short-term use, expression lines still remain, but over the long term creases actually disappear, meaning the smoothing effect does not wear off when the botox does."

Botox injections are also commonly used to prevent underarm sweating.
