“Will Botox make you look Frozen?” – This is one of the common worries that people have about botulinum toxin (Botox) injection.
This is actually a misconception from when Botox was first used for wrinkles.
With the advancement in techniques, you can look refreshed and youthful without everyone knowing that you had anything done. This technique has been coined “Baby Botox”.
Baby Botox uses a smaller dose of Botox, as compared to the traditional Botox injection.
The substance is injected in targeted areas to erase fine lines such as crows’ feet and forehead lines without fully paralysing muscles. Therefore, facial movement and expressions such as raising eyebrows and squinting are not totally frozen.
Baby Botox is also very individualised based on your facial muscle size and movement, eyebrow shape, and other considerations. Most people have some asymmetry between the two sides of the face, with some facial muscles on one side larger than the other. Baby Botox done by an experienced doctor takes all these factors into consideration during your treatment. This is in contrast to the formulaic approach of traditional Botox.
Botox injections – whether Baby or traditional Botox – need to be repeated as the effect wears off after 3 to 6 months and the muscle activity returns.
With Baby Botox, injections may need to be repeated earlier, as lower doses are used at each treatment.
Have you been noticing more fine lines over the years? Baby Botox is an effective yet subtle way to achieve more youthful skin.
