Have you heard of Baby Botox? Apparently, it’s the new thing in skincare—and it has nothing to do with giving your baby scary Botox injections.
Baby Botox refers to using a target amount of Botox on certain areas of your face to prevent any “over-Botoxed” looks that are all too common in today’s world. This treatment is mostly used for small areas and issues like crow’s feet and fine lines.
The point of Baby Botox is to provide a light-handed approach for a more subtle, natural look. As you can see on any episode of The Real Housewives, many Botox users tend to go way too far, hoping to look young and beautiful. Instead, they tend to look older, emotionless, and kind of plastic. What else do you expect from a treatment that temporarily freezes and fills spots on your face?
Licensed practitioners are now injecting very tiny amounts of Baby Botox into their patients’ “troubled” spots. The results are better and patients are happier with the results. However, since the levels of Botox injected are cut, so is the lifespan of the results. Even with Baby Botox, it’s still suggested that patients return for regular visits.
