Does Botox work for acne?

I was reading that botulinum toxin can be used to heal acne. Is that true? Are there any verified, medical publications about that?

Thank you for your question. I have not read or heard medical literature that supports BOTOX® as a treatment for acne. I would advise you to seek the opinion of a dermatologist on the most effective treatments for your acne. Best wishes.

Botox as Treatment for Acne

Botox can reduce glandular secretion from the apocrine glands which, if hyper production is the main problem, can help. However, probably, because of the expense, should be tried only in very resistant cases with hyper production where all other treatments have been tried.
