There have been some small studies done in recent years which show that taking a supplement containing zinc has increased the longevity of Botox cosmetic treatments.
However, the supplements used in the studies were Zytase, which also contains an enzyme called phytase in addition to the zinc. To date, there have been no studies looking at zinc supplementation on its own with Botox. With the price of Zytase being more than fifty times the price of ordinary zinc supplements, it becomes less of an attractive option.
Until further research is concluded, many doctors are advising that it is worth trying regular zinc supplementation rather that the Zytase pills, or alternatively increasing the amount of zinc-rich foods in the diet.
