Botox Reducing Scars

Botox has gotten a lot of attention as a wrinkle buster, but now, some facial surgeons are using it to reduce scars.

This latest study comes from the Mayo Clinic, where patients who were having facial surgery were either given Botox injections around the site of the incision, or an injection with nothing important in it just to test the theory. 

Six months later, independent plastic surgeons evaluated all the scars and found the patients who were given Botox had less noticeable scars that had healed better.

The theory makes sense that Botox relaxes the muscles near the scar and by not moving, that allows the scar to heal better.
