What is Baby Botox?

What is Baby Botox? Don’t be alarmed by the name! This treatment, also known as “Light Botox,” involves receiving a lower-than-average dosage of Botox in order to soften wrinkles while still allowing natural facial movement. Patients are aiming for a natural look rather than the “deer in the headlight” look that can occur when dosed improperly.

A Plastic Surgeon describes his process: “I typically use half the number of units in the forehead (10-12 units of Botox or 30-35 units of Dysport) versus what I typically use in the muscles between the eyebrows or near the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), each of which usually require 18-20 units (60 units of Dysport).”

Patients with deep wrinkles or strong forehead muscles certainly may require a greater number of units. The goal is to give you a natural look with some residual movement but eliminate or soften the horizontal forehead lines. Over-treating the forehead can cause the eyebrows to feel heavy. An additional benefit, lighter treatment is less expensive for patients.

The goal is to use a low dose of Botox to soften the lines but still allows some natural movement.  The effect will not last as long as a full treatment with Botox. Many patients come in looking for a subtle reduction of forehead, frown lines, or crow’s feet wrinkles. The smaller treatments of Baby Botox work as a great preventative treatment and it is easier on your wallet.
