Botox wrinkle cream helps in the treatment of rosacea — a chronic inflammatory skin disease affecting one out of ten people.
Two recent studies found that botulinum toxin injections effectively reduce the symptoms of rosacea, writes Daily Mail.
Experts believe that the toxin can stop the dilation of blood vessels and thus reduce the characteristic rash and redness of the skin and reduce inflammation.
Signs of rosacea
It should be noted that rosacea occurs when tiny blood vessels in the face dilate and become visible; in severe cases skin can thicken and swell, usually around the nose.
The causes of rosacea are still not installed. Treatments include antibiotics, gels or creams that have anti-inflammatory action. However, some types of rosacea can not be the above ways.
In one study, dermatologists Indian hospital Hindu RAO introduced a small amount of diluted botulinum toxin into the skin of 30 patients affected by rosacea.
The injection was performed under local anesthesia, and the results showed a significant reduction in redness in less than two weeks, and improvement continued for up to four months.
In the second study, researchers from the University of California in the USA discovered that botulinum toxin blocks the immune cells and prevents inflammation.
These cells play a key role in the activation of compounds called cathelicidins allocated to the immune system and are detected at higher levels in patients with rosacea.
The effect of botulinum toxin noted in the separate reports of other doctors.
The researchers believe that patients may not agree to multiple injections, but if the effect is confirmed, this technique will help those patients that do not affect other treatments.
