Baby botoks/Botoks facialThe key difference between baby botoks, botoks facial and regular Botulinum infusion is that baby Botoks treatment uses smaller amounts of the serum (cocktail) to give a very natural look and result similar with regular botoks infusion. The results are very similar to regular doses of Botulinum but the muscles are not paralyzed.
How does it work?It reduces wrinkles and makes the face smooth and relaxed – but it does not paralyze our facial expressions (which sometimes happens with classic botoks). Baby botoks is a real hit in rejuvenation – and one of the biggest trends in aesthetic and cosmetic applications. Baby botoks is a new way of administering serum (cocktail), which is gaining more and more popularity especially among young people. It consists of infusing a very small amount of botoks using many small and shallow punctures (in the classic version, a few places are infused and the doses are much higher). In practice, this technique is very similar to mesotherapy, hence the term “mesobotoks” can often be found. Thanks to the fact that the procedure uses much smaller doses of the serum (cocktail) than with classic botoks, we get the effect of refreshing and loosening the skin, without the risk of “freezing” facial expressions.
