Difference between Botox and Baby Botox

Botox injections are the most common cosmetic procedure that women use today. Many immediately associate it with aesthetic corrections that are considered "excessive" in society. That is why almost everyone who decided to use it doesn’t want to talk about it. "Going under the knife" is one thing, and using the injection procedure is quite another. Aesthetics have perfected their craft, and now we can approach aesthetic corrections in the form of injections with more reliefBotox or baby botox, what is the difference, and which option to choose? 

What is "baby botox"?

Baby botox has nothing to do with babies. It is only a smaller amount of Botox, a smaller amount than the one that is usually injected. It is important to understand that there is no shame when it comes to injecting any amount of Botox. If you want to get involved with it, baby botox is a treatment you should try first. Dermatologists call the dose of Botox a "drop" because it is a very small amount. A smaller amount is injected much more precisely, which leads to a more natural appearance.

When it comes to injecting such a small amount, dermatologists do not relax the muscles completely, which is why the flexibility of the face will remain as it is. It has the best effect on younger people, those whose facial muscles are still strong. Dermatologists suggest baby botox mainly to patients who want to define the shape of the jaw. Another great side of baby botox is that it can be used only for the purpose of strengthening facial muscles to make the overall look fresher.

What do you need to know before doing Botox?

With any cosmetic treatment, it is important to consult a dermatologist or esthetician, and of course a person of experience and trust. Consult with him/her about the final look you want.

It is also very important to try Botox before injecting it into your face, because there are people who are allergic to botulinum toxin. You can do this by asking your dermatologist to inject the liquid into your hand or somewhere else to check if you have an allergic reaction. The process is, of course, the same as with any Botox injection - a needle is impossible to avoid.

If you want to treat small lines that are created in the corners of the lips and eyes due to laughter, or lines on the neck, baby botox is a good choice. Botox is also used to treat skin that sweats too much. And people who have a problem with sweaty palms go for Botox treatment.

What is the difference between baby botox and regular botox?

There is no difference in the formula - Botox is Botox. Both treatments use the same strength of botulinum toxin , the only difference is the amount we inject. Baby botox will give you a much more natural look and you won’t look like your face is frozen in one expression. Traditional Botox lasts for about four to five months, while a baby botox has a slightly shorter effect - from two to three months.


Before you go under the procedure

It is important to know that there are preventive measures that you can already introduce into your daily routine so that wrinkles do not form so early. Try to use vitamin C and of course, cream with SPF. Also, remember that, before you go for treatment, do not wear heavy makeup to keep your face as clean as possible and to make Botox easier to penetrate the skin.
