Botox has traditionally been synonymous with expressionless foreheads, overarching eyebrows and pinched smiles. The trend nowadays is to use micro-doses to treat wrinkles for a more natural look. Baby Botox uses a lower volume of Botox (botulinum toxin injections) than a traditional injection to smooth those fine lines and wrinkles. This type of Botox treatments have been gaining in popularity among women in their 20s and 30s.
Compared to the standard Botox injections, baby Botox lowers the risk of your features appearing to look frozen. Regular Botox doses work by temporarily disabling the facial muscles that cause wrinkles – specifically those associated with crow’s feet and the frown lines between the eyes. Botox blocks the facial nerves that tell your muscles to contract. Once Botox is injected, the muscles are temporarily paralyzed. This leads to the reduction of wrinkles that are present when the muscles contract, which is why Botox is so effective on the wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks, and the corners of the eyes. Baby Botox is more effective for younger people who have an early onset of wrinkles. As we get older and lose elasticity in our skin, a permanent crease can sometimes develop even when the muscle is relaxed. While Bototx cannot erase these deep creases, it can help them to look softer.
here are some side effects to using Botox, and these include:
Bruising. This is temporary and will go away.
Headaches. Not so common but still occur in some patients.
Crooked smiles or drooling. Botox paralyzes the muscles so in some instances control over these muscles is lost.
Eye dryness or severe tearing.
Numbness and weakness in nearby muscles.
