What Is Baby Botox?
The term “baby botox” is trending on social media. Fortunately it has nothing to do with administering Botox to small children!
“Baby Botox” gets its name because it is a smaller or “baby” injection of Botox – yielding more subtle results. However, it is also popular with new moms – for a more refreshed appearance during those exhausting first months after a baby’s birth. So “baby botox” can refer to post-childbirth injections as well!
At AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI our injectable experts are committed to helping all of our patients meet their cosmetic goals through procedures such Facial Fillers, Botox and even the new “Baby Botox”. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of Baby Botox, and why many people (possibly including members of the Royal Family) are embracing the brilliant subtlety of this procedure.
Kate Middleton May Have Gotten Baby Botox
On reason “baby botox” is trending on social media is because there is evidence to suggest that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, may have undergone Baby Botox. In an Instagram post from Dr. Munir Somji ( a plastic surgeon in the UK) that has subsequently been deleted, a side-by-side, “before and after” pair of photos of Kate Middleton were accompanied by the caption “Our Kate loves a bit of baby Botox.”
The “after” photo depicted a noticeable reduction of fine lines on the forehead, as well as elevation to the lateral tail of the brow, all telltale signs of Baby Botox injections.
Since it is the policy of the British Royal Family not to endorse any kind of commercial activity, a spokesman of Kensington Palace released a statement almost immediately after the post, claiming it was “categorically not true” that Duchess Kate had undergone Baby Botox. But the comparison photos do seem to say otherwise!
Baby Botox Use Lower Volume Injections
What makes “Baby Botox” unique is its ability to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles with lower volumes of Botox than traditional facial injections. For example, where a treatment area using traditional Botox may require 25 units, with Baby Botox, only 10 may be required. Many patients interested in treating wrinkles with facial fillers but wish to avoid looking “frozen” opt for Baby Botox.
Baby Botox Provides More Subtle Results
In addition to using lower volumes of Botox, one major appeal of Baby Botox is its ability to deliver subtle, precise results. Depending on the location of the injection, the precise, targeted micro injections of Baby Botox are able to deliver natural-looking, tailored results with significantly fewer units of Botox.
As Baby Botox utilizes significantly smaller volumes than standard-size Botox injections, patients run much less risk of looking “frozen” following the procedure. Larger volumes of Botox can cause the frontalis muscle of the forehead to weaken, which results in the eyebrows to drop. With the small doses implemented with Baby Botox injections, patients are able to avoid this.
Baby Botox Erases Fine Lines
While it is possible to inject Baby Botox into almost any area of the face, Baby Botox is best for subtly erasing fine lines. Baby Botox is the perfect solution for crows’ feet, which are located in a delicate area of the face and benefit greatly from the subtle results of Baby Botox. For patients wishing to treat deeper facial folds, however, traditional Botox may be more effective. But for patients wishing to say goodbye to fine lines, Baby Botox is the answer.
