Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses exciting study results about enhancing botox.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses a study that he co-authored in an interview with TheBeautyRules.com. The subject? Enhancing botox results.

Skin Care For Botox Users - The Beauty Rules
In an article titled “Skin Care For Botox Users – Enhance Botox Results,” the doctor shares information about a study that he co-authored with Jeffrey Kenkel and Philip Werschler.

In the study, all 61 subjects had botox injections. Some subjects then used a follow up skin care routine with products containing 4% hydroquinone and 0.05% tretinoin cream, while others were treated to a more typical skin care system.

Those with the hydroquinone and tretinoin cream treatment showed an 86% reduction in wrinkles, while the other group saw only an 8% rate of improvement. The more successful treatment also improved skin discoloration.

According to Dr. Joel Schlessinger, the hydroquinone system is easy to follow, besides being quite effective.

The full study (Further Enhancement of Facial Appearance With a Hydroquinone Skin Care System Plus Tretinoin in Patients Previously Treated With Botulinum Toxin Type A) is available online at the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, but you’ll need to either have a subscription or pay a fee to read it.
