QUESTION

Would Botox Affect Melasma?

Can Botox worsen skin pigmentation issues like melasma?

ANSWER

Botox and Melasma

Thanks for your question - Botox will not change melasma. Botox directly interferes with the neuromuscluar junction. Melasma is characterized by hyperpigmentation. The pharmocologic action of Botox is completely unrelated to hyperpigmentation. /n I hope this helps.
