Baby Botox, also known as “micro Botox” or “mini Botox”, is a botulinum toxin injection technique that is slightly different from classic Botox. This method involves administering smaller doses, generally diluted in a larger volume of saline solution.
2. WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF BABY BOTOX COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL BOTOX TREATMENT?
The main advantage of baby Botox lies in its more nuanced and subtle approach. Baby Botox targets the first signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles and skin imperfections. It allows you to retain your authentic facial expressions while reducing the signs of ageing. It offers natural rejuvenation, preserving the appearance of your face without looking artificial.
3. AT WHAT AGE IS IT APPROPRIATE TO START BABY BOTOX?
The right age to start baby Botox varies from person to person, depending on factors such as genetics, lifestyle and skin quality. Generally speaking, many people start to consider baby Botox around the age of 30, when fine lines and wrinkles first begin to appear. It can also be used preventatively to slow the ageing process in younger people.
4. WHICH AREAS OF THE FACE CAN BENEFIT FROM BABY BOTOX?
Baby Botox is particularly effective in treating areas of the face prone to fine lines and wrinkles, including the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows and neck wrinkles. It can also be used to soften wrinkles around the mouth, improve skin texture and reduce dilated pores.
5. HOW MANY SESSIONS OF BABY BOTOX ARE NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED RESULTS?
The number of baby Botox sessions required depends on the individual needs of each patient. Some people can achieve satisfactory results in a single session, while others may require follow-up sessions to maintain the effects. Ask for an initial consultation with an aesthetic doctor to assess your needs and obtain an optimal treatment plan.
6. HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF BABY BOTOX LAST?
The effects of baby Botox are generally visible after a few days and last for an average of 3 to 4 months. After this period, you may consider a follow-up session to maintain the results. Some patients find that the effects last longer with regular sessions of baby Botox.
7. ARE THERE ANY RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH BABY BOTOX?
Baby Botox is considered safe when administered by a qualified professional. Potential side effects are usually minimal and temporary, such as redness, slight bruising or swelling at the injection site. At ELNA Esthetics, our doctors and nurses are qualified to carry out injections in conditions that are safe for our customers.
8. IS THERE A RECOVERY PERIOD AFTER A BABY BOTOX TREATMENT?
No, one of the advantages of baby Botox is that it generally does not require a significant recovery period. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the session, although you should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for the first few hours to prevent the product spreading.
9. HOW MUCH DOES A BABY BOTOX SESSION USUALLY COST?
The cost of a baby Botox session can vary depending on the area treated and the amount of product used. It is important to discuss pricing with your doctor and ensure you understand the associated costs before proceeding with treatment.
10. CAN I COMBINE BABY BOTOX WITH OTHER AESTHETIC TREATMENTS?
Yes, baby Botox can be combined with other aesthetic treatments, such as dermal fillers or laser treatments (Forever BBL or Halo), to achieve more complete results. However, it is essential to discuss this option with your aesthetic health professional, who will assess your specific case and develop a treatment plan tailored to your aesthetic needs and goals.
