Baby Botox – less is more?


Baby Botox, Cheshire: Anti-wrinkle injections (Botox) is the most popular non-surgical injectable treatment in the UK. Per thousand, there are more people having Botox in the UK than the USA. This is probably because Botox is highly-effective in reducing dynamic expression lines and wrinkles for months at a time. Where once it was thought that those over the age of 35 were the ones to have Botox, it is now thought that those in their 20’s could benefit from the preventative qualities of Botox. However, those younger patients may not need the same doses of Botox as those who are more mature.

What is Baby Botox?

Baby Botox is simply the administration of tiny doses of Botulinum Toxin Type A (the substance used for the procedure) in to specific areas of the face. The doses given are usually half those administered during a regular Botox treatment.

Baby Botox has become increasingly popular for those who are taking their first steps in to the world of injectable cosmetic treatments and can be perfect for those who simply want a very natural and subtle enhancement. Actors, presenters and those on TV can also benefit from baby Botox as it offers a smoothing effect to lines and wrinkles but won’t affect facial expressions, something that those in the public eye and theatrical performers need to maintain. It can also be a nice entry-level treatment for someone who is a little nervous of the process.

Baby Botox can also be used more superficially to help skin that is showing the first signs of ageing to look smoother and more refined. This will not affect the muscles underneath but will smooth the superficial layers of the skin.

Baby Botox will wear off faster than a traditional wrinkle-smoothing injection treatment, which means that actors can have these treatments between filming, knowing that the effects will wear off in time for their next performance.

Before any treatment here at ELZ Aesthetics in Warrington and Altringham, Dr A will spend time in a consultation with you, to ascertain which Botox treatment may be the right one for you. You may have had Botox before and simply wish to carry on with your regular doses. However, if you are new to Botox, Baby Botox may be perfect as a starting treatment.

With any anti-wrinkle injection treatment, the key is to maintain a natural appearance. Dr A will never administer Botox to make you look frozen, but he may wish to start with Baby Botox to ascertain how you will respond to treatment, before deciding on a full dosage of the substance in your next appointment.
