Lately it has been established that intra-dermal botulinum toxin is also effective in treating many dermatological conditions including refractory erythematous-telangiectatic rosacea, post - menopausal facial flushing and other similar conditions.However, the desired effect of treating the reddening in patients suffering from facial flushing can become an undesirable and embarrassing side effect when these same patients present to the clinic for esthetic concerns such as upper face rhytids. In this case, intramuscular botulinum toxin injections used for wrinkles treatment will also secondarily treat the facial reddening in their localized skin diffusion zones and result in embarrassing white patches all over the face. The patchy appearance following botulinum toxin injections for esthetic purposes could be bothersome for some patients and could be a tell-tale sign of botulinum toxin injections.
