If you’re a fan of all things aesthetics, you’ve likely come across the term “baby BOTOX®.” At our med spas in Elk Grove, Folsom, Roseville, and Sacramento, BOTOX® is easily one of the most popular treatments for people of almost all ages. Now, there’s a new way to get all the benefits of neurotoxin injections with even more natural-looking results, and it’s called—you guessed it—baby BOTOX®.
What exactly is baby BOTOX®, and how is it different from traditional injections? Keep reading to get answers to these questions and more!
What Is Baby BOTOX®?
Baby BOTOX® is an approach to BOTOX® injections that uses small doses to create subtle improvements while maintaining plenty of natural movement in the face. It ever-so-slightly relaxes specific wrinkles without giving you a 100% smoothed-out look.
Sometimes all it takes is a few units in a certain spot—between your eyebrows, for example—to replace a stressed, tired, aged look with something just a little more relaxed and rejuvenated.
The term got some buzz a couple of years ago when people speculated that Kate Middleton had undergone some subtle baby BOTOX® treatments. While the palace denied it, the Duchess happens to have a great face for the improvements baby BOTOX® is designed to create: not a total wrinkle wipe-out, but enough delicate improvements to create subtly younger-looking skin.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Baby BOTOX®?
A good candidate for baby BOTOX® is someone who:
- Is just beginning to form minor dynamic wrinkles (crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and so on)
- Wants to prevent deeper wrinkles from forming
- Has traditional BOTOX® and just wants to touch up the results
- Is looking for very subtle wrinkle reduction
If you’re nervous about trying BOTOX® for the first time, you can always start with a “baby” approach first to familiarize yourself with the treatment and see how your skin responds.
Do you have beautifully smooth skin now and want to keep it that way for as long as possible? Baby BOTOX® is also a fantastic way to stop wrinkles before they begin. Learn more about preventative BOTOX® in this previous blog post.
How Do I Decide Between Baby BOTOX® and Traditional BOTOX®?
The best way to decide is to consult one-on-one with a trained injector who has experience treating wrinkles of all types and depths. He or she will recommend the right dosage for you based on the specifics of your skin and the goals you have for your look.
Here at Destination Aesthetics™, our injector team includes Allergan® and Galderma® trainers who have spent years perfecting the craft of cosmetic injections. You can trust that your face is always in the hands of a credentialed pro!
How Much Does Baby BOTOX® Cost?
Baby BOTOX® typically costs less than traditional BOTOX® because it requires fewer units. Your actual price will vary depending on how many units you need to get the results you love. We’ll give you a personalized pricing estimate after your consultation so you know exactly what to expect.
