    ABSTRACT: Facial ageing is a gradual process which could be due to intrinsic and extrinsic causes, it ultimately results in the appearance of gravity-induced tissue ptosis, wrinkles, epidermal and dermal atrophy, dryness, senile lentigo, flushing, telangiectasia, and enlarged pores. Mesobotox treatment is a technique of microinjections of diluted Botulinum toxin type A (BTX) to preserve the facial mobility in order to preserve the natural beauty. BTX treatment enhances the aesthetic improvements attained with IPL. Ten patients of age ranging between 40 - 60 years old ( mean 45±10.3 years) with skin type ranging between (III - V) were treated using BTX and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) using cutoff filter 550 nm with a fluence of 25 J/cm2 together as a combination therapy. All patients received standard IPL treatment and were assigned to receive eight 0.1 mL intradermal injections of BTX in each cheek (8 U total dose). Vertical lines within the forehead also received five 0.1 mL intradermal injections of BTX. Small wrinkles and fine lines, erythema, apparent pore size, skin texture, and overall appearance were evaluated after one week. A significantly higher proportion of patients showed improvement in small wrinkles and erythema with IPL plus BTX compared with the baseline demonstrated by computerized image analysis. In conclusion, A combined therapy of mesobotx and IPL is an effective and safe treatment for fine wrinkles, telangiectasia, flushing.
