Botox and PMLE
Thank you for your question kittyjung2002. I am sorry to hear
about your situation. Botox
is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial
expressions. Acne aestivalis is not actually acne, it is a specific type of polymorphous light eruption (PMLE). PMLE has nothing to do with Botox, but it could be a coincidence that it is occurring after a Botox treatment. True acne (acne vulgaris) can be treated with a variety of products and treatments. Please consult with a doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
Botox in masseters
Botox is a purified protein- it is injected into the muscle. It does not have any effect on the skin. What you are experiencing is not from Botox. It is best to see a Dermatologist.
Botox for Masseter Muscle and Acne
Botox in the Masseter muscle for facial slimming works extremely well for facial slimming. There is no relationship between the acne flare and Botox. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for your acne. Best, Dr. Green
Acne Improvement -- Clear + Brilliant, Eclipse Micropen, Salicylic Acid Peels, Tretinoin, Isotretinoin
Botox and acne aren't necessarily related. The acne can be treated
with chemical peels, microneedling, tretinoin, isotretinoin. Please
see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Acne from Botox?
This is unusual because I actually treat acne with a superficial Botox treatment. Also, a treatment in June should be just about worn off by now. I would see a dermatologist to sort things out. Probably a Retin A is needed, maybe chemical peels.
