Baby Botox refers to a delicate approach in administering Botox injections for a natural and subtle result.
A larger proportion of people are keen to avoid the “frozen” look, and look more natural, whether this is to embrace some facial expression to retain their character, or to just look a bit more fresh to feel confident.
The baby Botox treatments involve smaller doses of Botox which are injected into the usual areas. The results are still very similar to when normal doses are given, but more subtle movement is present.
At London City Skin Clinic, our Medical expert Dr Robby Bajaj, is well-known for practising Baby Botox, as well as the conventional normal doses of Botox. He has many loyal clients who appreciate the natural-looking results he achieves with the popular anti-ageing injections.
HOW DOES BABY BOTOX WORK?
Baby Botox uses the same Botulinum Toxin (Botox) solution for the injections in the same strength. However, small amounts are used and are placed extremely carefully into the fine dynamic facial muscles where they will relax the muscle contractions by blocking nerve impulses. This allows the skin to appear smooth and less lined. The results are that the skin appears softer and younger.
The most common areas for injection are:
Eye area (crow’s feet)
The treatment is not permanent, so patients should anticipate treatment every few months to prevent further wrinkles from appearing, though each injection should also reduce the depth of newer wrinkles. In this respect, the treatment can also be used preventatively, to delay the appearance of wrinkles.
WHO IS BABY BOTOX FOR?
Botox is a popular choice with men and women who wish to reduce the appearance of winkles and frown lines, typically around the face and neck.
First time patients – those who have never had the treatment before and may be apprehensive
Younger patients – who only need a light dose to reduce the early signs of ageing
Preventative treatments – patients who are using treatment as a preventative measure, to suppress muscle activity so that lines and wrinkles do not develop as they tend to with non-users
Those seeking a natural look
Patients needing facial movement – e.g. actors/actresses, who want to keep a range of facial expressions, yet have some subtle reduction of the signs of ageing so that they look good on screen or in photos
