The outcome of any BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment depends heavily on the skill of the injector and the technique used. Where your provider places the wrinkle-relaxing product and how much they administer can be the difference between looking natural and looking slightly stiff. With this in mind, many patients are seeking out “micro-BOTOX” or “Baby BOTOX” to achieve a subtle and refreshed look. Keep reading to learn all about this popular new injection technique.
What is Baby BOTOX?
Micro-BOTOX and Baby BOTOX are terms used to describe an advanced method of administering BOTOX® Cosmetic. Put simply, the technique involves superficially injecting micro-doses of product. These doses are smaller than what you would expect to receive during a traditional BOTOX® Cosmetic session.
However, the treatment may involve more injections per area of concern. As many as several hundred microdroplets of hyperdilute BOTOX® Cosmetic may be placed during a single session. In other situations, a few injections may be sufficient.
This method is ideal for improving the appearance of the face and neck in a delicate and understated way. Plus, BOTOX® Cosmetic isn’t the only neuromodulator that can be administered using this approach. Dysport® can also provide excellent results when injected in small doses, commonly known as micro-Dysport.
Advantages of Micro-BOTOX
The allure of the micro-treatment lies in the natural, rejuvenated outcome. This technique is known for helping the skin look fresh and smooth, almost like after a facial. What’s more, the incredibly precise micro-injections tend to offer a highly-tailored, individualized result.
Ultimately, this technique is an excellent way to address minor cosmetic concerns and soften your look. Other benefits of micro-BOTOX include:
- A relatively short treatment time
- A natural-looking outcome
- No downtime
- Potentially more affordable than traditional techniques
Common Uses for Baby BOTOX
Baby BOTOX has many different applications. First and foremost, the technique is an ideal way to improve skin issues such as:
- Uneven texture
- Fine lines
- Mild to moderate wrinkles
The micro-BOTOX approach is also popular among people in their 20s who are not yet dealing with fine lines or wrinkles. Younger patients tend to rely on micro-BOTOX to act as a preventative measure instead of a corrective one. The tiny injections are typically enough to keep wrinkles at bay without the need for full doses.
Additionally, Baby BOTOX is an excellent technique when it comes to maintenance. Some patients who opt for the classic injection style may find that micro-injections can help prolong their results.
Is Micro-BOTOX Right For Me?
Micro-BOTOX is an ideal aesthetic treatment for many people. Experienced injector Dr. Shaun Patel will listen to your concerns and evaluate your aesthetic issues to determine if the micro-BOTOX approach is right for you.
You may particularly benefit from this technique if you:
- Are a first-time BOTOX® Cosmetic patient
- Want to maintain a high level of natural facial movement
- Are looking for subtle, natural improvement
Keep in mind that Baby BOTOX isn’t right for everyone. If you have very prominent wrinkles, this technique may not be enough to fade them completely.
Some patients are fine with having some lines in favor of more movement, but others may be looking for a dramatic result. In that situation, the classic approach may be more appropriate. Dr. Patel may advise these patients to wait and see if Baby BOTOX addresses their concerns before returning for additional injections.
