New evidence of the benefits of Botox

We’ve always known that Botox is an effective wrinkle fighter. But now, new evidence shows it can actually prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place. According to research from Dr. Roger Dailey’s group at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), patients who begin receiving Botox injections between their 30s and 50s were able to prevent wrinkles from forming in the glabella (frown) and forehead regions, as well as eliminating existing wrinkles. To my knowledge, this is the first time I’ve seen scientific evidence of the long-suspected prophylactic effect of Botox.

In addition, after about two years of regular Botox therapy, Dr. Dailey and associates found that patients could reduce the frequency of Botox® Cosmetic treatments, and still receive most of the same wrinkle-smoothing cosmetic benefits.

Dailey studied 50 women ages 30 to 50, who received regular Botox® injections for two years. “We found that after the patient received Botox® Cosmetic injections every four months for two years, the frequency of the injections can be changed to every six months and still achieve good results,” Dailey said. “This demonstrates patients have the ability to achieve good results with broader treatment schedules and ultimately at a lower overall treatment cost.
