What is Discreet or “Baby Botox®”?

Botox injections have become an everyday treatment when it comes to enhancing the cosmetic appearance of the skin. 

Not only is treatment safe and effective, it is also extremely affordable, making more and more people opt for this treatment today.

However, there still appears to be a small amount of ‘stigma’ attached to Botox® injections as the change is visibly evident, making it fairly obvious to everyone if a person has had Botox® treatment.

These days however, discreet or ‘baby’ Botox® injections are available. Here we shall take a look at this briefly.

What is baby Botox®?

People who undergo Botox® injection treatments prefer to preserve their natural look while reaping the benefits of Botox® treatment on their lines and wrinkles. 

Current Botox® treatments are aimed at getting rid of almost all lines and wrinkles on the face, and can result in a look that can to some appear unnatural. 

On the other hand baby Botox® is aimed at treating just a few lines and wrinkles while preserving certain natural expression lines.

What is baby Botox® treatment targeted at?

In most cases, baby Botox® treatments are directed at treating crow’s feet (fine lines and wrinkles seen at the corner of the eyes), frown lines and a few wrinkles on the forehead. 

Areas such as those under the eyes are not injected. The eyebrow may also be injected to help open up the eyes a bit more, and this can have remarkable effects on overall appearance of the patient.  

In a nutshell, treatments are strategically limited to only certain areas of the face, preserving the natural look while offering all the benefits that Botox® brings with it.

Advantages

As is the case with Botox® injections, patients report a significant improvement in their look and feel a lot younger following baby Botox® treatments. 

Confidence levels are also a lot higher as their natural look is preserved as some of the common wrinkles are still present.

Risks

The risks with baby Botox® injections are the same as the ones seen with regular Botox®, as the nature of the injection given does not change. 

Patients report mild bruising and bleeding at the site of injection, which resolves spontaneously without leaving any scars. 

Infections are rare as the procedure is performed under sterile conditions. Allergic reactions may occur to components within the Botox® injection but these are rare and there are hardly any reported cases of severe reactions.

Conclusion

Baby Botox® is becoming more and more popular due to the fact that it preserves the patients natural look, while getting rid of most of the fine wrinkles on the face. 

There is no doubt that this may become the preferred treatment by many patients in the future.
