Am I a Good Candidate for Baby BOTOX®?
Most anyone can have BOTOX® injections, provided you haven’t had an allergic reaction to its ingredients in the past. Your ZENA Medical dermatologist will take a full medical history during your comprehensive consultation to determine if BOTOX® is safe for you.
Baby BOTOX® is more successful for younger patients looking to prevent the signs of aging rather than erase them. The medication is also not effective for treating lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage or environmental factors. But if your facial expressions are behind your forehead lines, crow’s feet, brow furrows, or smile lines, and you want to preserve some muscle function to keep your natural expressions intact, Baby BOTOX® may be exactly what you’re looking for.
What is Getting Baby BOTOX® Treatment Like?
There isn’t much difference between how a traditional BOTOX® treatment feels versus a Baby BOTOX® treatment. Your ZENA Medical provider will ensure you’re comfortable receiving treatment, which may include a topical anesthetic to prevent any pain during the injections. The only difference is you may require fewer injections placed in slightly different locations than you’ve had in the past.
As with traditional BOTOX®, there is no interruption to your schedule regarding recovery. There may be some injection site tenderness or slight bruising, but this does not typically impede a patient’s routine.
What Results Can I Expect with Baby BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is the number one cosmetic enhancement procedure for a reason: it works. Within 7-10 days, you’ll notice your features softening and your lines and wrinkles diminishing. The micro-doses of Baby BOTOX® will ensure you look refreshed, with a smooth complexion while you can still maintain the freedom of movement that lets your personality shine through.
