What is Baby Botox?
Small doses of Botox injected into target areas of the face to achieve a lighter look with more movement but short-term results. Baby Botox aims to treat just a few lines and wrinkles while preserving certain natural expression lines.
Indications for Baby Botox
This treatment is ideal for clients who are just starting Botox treatments and want to familiarise themselves with the procedure and results, or those who want to treat wrinkles and lines cautiously, to achieve a more refreshed version of themselves. Baby Botox is also recommended for younger clients.
Baby Botox is often used to treat crow’s feet, the fine lines and wrinkles at the corner of the eyes, frown lines and shallow wrinkles on the forehead. The eyebrow may also be injected to help open up the eyes and this can have a remarkable rejuvenating effect on overall appearance.
This treatment is not suitable for use under the eyes or for very deep wrinkles.
Several injections of Botox are administered into the muscles to reduce wrinkles. Treatment typically takes around 15 minutes. No anaesthetic is necessary, and discomfort is brief and minimal.
After the treatment
Downtime is minimal. The treatment usually takes effect after 3-5 days, however it may take 2 weeks for the maximum effect to be seen.
The effect lasts between 3 to 6 months (average 4 months). Clients who have had several injections often find the effect lasts longer. Side effects are uncommon and minimal.
