Botox is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, with over four million procedures performed in 2020, and over five million performed in 2019. While almost everyone has heard of Botox, far fewer people are familiar with Micro Botox, which is the same procedure, only using a diluted solution and fewer units. This results in a more natural appearance without the risk of completely freezing certain muscles, although experienced clinicians take steps to avoid this from happening.

What is Micro Botox?

Micro Botox, also known as “Baby Botox,” is when the Botox is diluted and fewer units are used, but injected into the same areas where wrinkles have already formed or are likely to form in the future. Although some small wrinkles may still be present after the treatment, facial expressions and movements will be fully retained, just with a lessened appearance of wrinkles.

How often can you get Micro Botox?

Because fewer units are injected in the same body surface area, typically Micro Botox will not last as long as a regular administration of Botox. Results may last only two to three months, whereas a typical administration of Botox injections typically lasts around three to four months because more units are injected in the same overall area.

What areas of the face can be treated with Micro Botox?

Several areas of the face can be treated with Micro Botox, including, but not limited to:

  • Forehead Lines
  • Bunny Lines (across bridge of the nose)
  • Crow’s Feet (lines around outside corner of eyes)
  • Mentalis Dysfunction (‘dents’ in the chin)
  • Brow Lift  (lifting effect of the brow)
  • Gummy Smile (overexposure of the upper teeth and gums when smiling)
  • Platysma Bands (aging muscle neck lines/bands)
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in areas such as the underarms and palms of hands)
  • Glabellar Lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows that resemble the number 11, also known as frown lines)

What are the benefits of Micro Botox?

The many benefits of Micro Botox include:

  • Everyone is a Candidate — The small amount of injection used will allow the muscles to relax without becoming completely frozen. The treatment is intended to leave some movement, as well as the ability to make expressions. There may be a few subtle wrinkles left after a Micro Botox treatment. Because the results are so natural-looking, this is a great option for those who do not want anyone to know they have had Botox.
  • Short Procedure Process — Everyone leads a busy life every day, so any procedure that does not take up an excessive amount of time is a huge bonus. While it is impossible to determine the exact length of the procedure before seeing the patient’s treatment needs, the majority of people can be treated in about 30 minutes.
  • No Recovery Time Required — Another huge benefit of Micro Botox is that it does not come with a lengthy recovery time, which can often avert some people from getting a specific treatment. Patients should be able to return to their regular plans right away with no issues.
  • Get Instant Results — Since Micro Botox is injected directly into the skin, positive results will be visible nearly instantly. Immediately after the procedure, the patient’s skin will look smoother and younger, which is completely different from the 7-10 day wait for typical Botox results. However, results may not last as long as full-dosed Botox since not as many units are being used at a time.
