Get to know Baby Botox
What is Baby Botox?
Baby Botox is a term used to refer to the injection of micro-drops, or small doses of neurotoxins, to achieve a more natural and less frothy result in reducing expression lines. Basically, it’s a lower concentrated dose of cosmetic botox.
What are the benefits of Baby Botox?
This treatment has many different benefits. Baby Botox is great for preventing wrinkles, frown lines and drooping eyebrows. It allows patients to be proactive before lines appear so that they can enjoy a long time with a youthful appearance.
What distinguishes Baby Botox from Botox?
The dosage in Baby Botox is much lower than regular Botox. As the name suggests, it is usually given to younger people who are looking more for prevention rather than a complete cure for very prominent lines and wrinkles.
Who is the right candidate for Pediatric Botox?
Baby Botox is used to work on women or young patients looking to reduce wrinkles. Additionally, depending on the patients’ facial features, they may be better candidates for pediatric Botox. For example, patients with narrow foreheads or low eyebrows often get better results with lower doses to smooth expression lines and to prevent the appearance of drooping eyelids or flat eyebrows.
Any woman who wants an improvement in the position of the eyelid or eyebrow and anyone interested in maintaining a youthful appearance may be suitable for Baby Botox. This technique is also used with models or actors, who need the ability to express themselves while working. They cannot if they are treated with higher doses of regular Botox. Also, patients looking for smooth skin and visibly reduced pores are great candidates.
What can a patient expect during a Baby Botox appointment?
The procedure only takes a few minutes. These injections are done with a very fine needle, so the pain is minimal and bruising is rare. When used into the muscle, Baby Botox is injected similarly to traditional neurotoxins, only in smaller doses. First, any makeup or sunscreen is removed. Then the skin is prepared with a cleansing agent, and then injections are made into specific muscles according to the area to be treated.
What is the recovery period after Baby Botox?
Patients can expect little or no relief. Small injection bumps appear for a few minutes after the procedure and then dissipate. If bruises occur, they usually go away in a few days and can be covered with makeup.
Doctors will give you various instructions on how to follow the recovery period such as avoiding rubbing your face, especially the area around the eyebrows or the eyes downwards as this can lead to drooping eyelid.
