Consider injectables if you want to enhance your aesthetics quickly without any surgery. Injectables are the most popular aesthetic treatments in plastic surgery. They are used to restore volume and contour to the face and correct wrinkles and scars, and one of our current offers is the Baby Botox.
Baby Botox allows for quick recovery time, making them ideal for busy people who need to maintain their looks without sacrificing their lifestyle or work commitments. But why have Baby Botox instead of the regular Botox?
9 Facts About Baby Botox Before Getting It
Here are nine facts you should know about it to understand why you would want Baby Botox over the regular Botox.
1.) There’s No Difference Between The Formula Of Baby Botox and Regular Botox
Botox is a treatment injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles temporarily. Meanwhile, Baby Botox is similar to Botox, but it’s just offered in smaller doses, hence “baby.”
Baby Botox injections are typically used for people who have mild to moderate wrinkles around their eyes, forehead, and mouth. The injections can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make your skin look more youthful.
Botox has been around for a long time, but it was not until recently that the use of Botox has been expanded to other areas such as the face, neck, and hands. Baby Botox is an alternative to the traditional form of Botox. It offers similar benefits but in smaller doses, making it less expensive for people who want to try it out without committing to complete treatment.
2.) Baby Botox Offer Subtle Changes
Baby Botox offers subtle changes compared to regular Botox, which can stiffen your face. This is because Baby Botox has a lower concentration of the active ingredient, but it lasts for a shorter period.
The thing about regular Botox is that when applied too much, since there can be many wrinkles, it can make your face appear unnatural, giving you a frozen look. Every time you show a facial expression, it becomes noticeably odd, sort of doll-like.
If the point of Botox is aesthetics, then too much Botox is certainly not it. Baby Botox can offer the effects of removing wrinkles without making you appear like a stiff doll. However, the downside is it won’t last as long, and not all wrinkles are removed.
3.) How Does Baby Botox Work?
Baby Botox is exactly like Botox, and it works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that cause wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging. Botox is injected into the skin on specific areas where wrinkles appear, and then it blocks nerve signals from reaching those muscles. This prevents them from contracting, which smoothes out your skin’s appearance.
They basically prevent the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that stimulates muscle contraction and causes wrinkles. A Botox injection causes temporary paralysis of muscles, which prevents wrinkles from forming.
4.) Botox For Medical Purposes
Botox was initially made for medical purposes but has become a popular cosmetic procedure.
In the early 20th century, the German doctor Henrik E. K. Fett was trying to find a way to treat migraines and facial pain in patients. He realized that he could not give them surgery because they could not recover from it, so he decided to inject Botox into their facial muscles, which would paralyze them temporarily and allow them time to heal.
People of all ages now use Botox to improve their appearance or reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. It is also used to treat other conditions such as chronic headaches, muscle spasms, migraine pain relief, and even cerebral palsy symptoms such as muscle spasticity.
5.) Baby Botox Uses Botulinum Toxin
Botulinum toxin is a protein found in the soil, air, and water. Certain bacteria also produce it in the intestines of animals. This toxin is what causes Botulism which is a rare but life-threatening illness.
This natural toxin has been used for medical purposes despite being dangerous because it can paralyze muscles. Botulinum toxin is a standard treatment for cerebral palsy, spasticity, and hyperhidrosis.
There is no other ingredient that can effectively paralyze the muscles. They exist, but they are not as potent, meaning they won’t last long.
6.) Baby Botox Is Painless
Despite Baby Botox using botulinum toxin in the formula, the treatment doesn’t hurt at all. The pain only comes from the needle pricking your skin when injecting the formula. If you are uncomfortable with needles, you can ask your provider to offer numbing creams or topical anesthetics to minimize the pain.
7.) Baby Botox As Preventative Measure
While Baby Botox can indeed reduce existing wrinkles, they are mainly for preventing wrinkles from developing in the future.
Constant facial expressions throughout a lifetime will wear out your facial muscles, giving way to wrinkles in the future. To reduce wrinkles later, you can allow your muscles to relax now by paralyzing them right now through Baby Botox.
The low doses of Baby Botox are the perfect tool for the job.
8.) Baby Botox Is Safe
Botox treatment is safe if under the supervision of a certified aesthetician. However, there are some risks involved in the process. The most significant risk is that it can cause an allergic reaction, leading to severe complications. In addition, there are also other risks such as skin infections and reactions to the Botox itself.
As long as you find a certified aesthetician to do the treatment, the treatment is safe. They offer to consult and will have to check your medical history to determine if Botox is good for you or not.
Some clinics also offer aftercare skin products to make the results long-lasting.
9.) How Much Does It Cost?
Baby Botox cost can vary depending on the type of treatment you have done, the number of wrinkles you want to remove, and the treated area.
The cost for a typical Botox treatment for wrinkles around the eyes can range from $300-$400.
Baby Botox can do everything a regular Botox can, except it does it through smaller doses. Expect lesser effects of Botox, which is a good thing depending on your goals.
