A Low Key Approach To Botox


Summary

Botox injections are now common practice to improve the skin’s appearance. As a safe and effective treatment, more and more people also choose it because it is so affordable. 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.


Botox injections are now common practice to improve the skin’s appearance. As a safe and effective treatment, more and more people also choose it because it is so affordable. 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.

Discreet or ‘baby’ botox injections are available these days, however. We’ll look at this here.

Baby botox: what is it?

People who undergo botox injection treatments prefer to preserve their natural look while reaping the benefits of botox treatment on their lines and wrinkles. Aimed at getting rid of almost all lines and wrinkles on the face, current botox treatments can result in a look that can to some appear unnatural. Alternatively, baby botox treats only a few lines and wrinkles, while keeping some natural expression lines.

What does baby botox treatment target?

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. Other areas, like under the eyes, do not receive injection. To help open up the eyes, the eyebrow may also be injected, and this can have a remarkable impact on the patient’s overall appearance. In summary, the natural look is kept because the treatments are strategically limited, but all the benefits of botox are delivered.

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. With some of the common wrinkles still present, confidence levels are also a lot higher because their natural look is preserved.

Risks with baby botox injections

Regular botox treatment poses the same risks as baby botox because the nature of the injection given is the same. Patients report mild bruising and bleeding at the site of injection, which resolves spontaneously without leaving any scars. The procedure is performed under sterile conditions, so infections are rare. 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 patient’s natural look, while getting rid of most of the fine wrinkles on the face. In the future, there is no doubt that this may become the preferred treatment by many patients.
