It seems every time we turn around Botox has a new indication.  It’s kind of like becoming a “miracle drug” of sorts.  A recent study took 16 patient’s with the average age of 12 who were having surgery on their face to remove a disfiguring birthmark or something similar.  After surgery half of the scar was treated with placebo and the other half was treated with Botox A.  It was random selection.  The scar halves treated with Botox were noticeably better than the non- treated side.  One theory is that it relaxed muscles under the scar causing less movement.  Who knows.  More studies are being done.
