If you’re bothered by fine lines around your eyes, on your forehead, or between your brows, you may have wondered about Botox. The minimally invasive treatment provides a skin-smoothening alternative for anyone wishing to avoid the hassle, downtime, and risks of surgery.
If you like the idea of Botox but have concerns about looking as though you “had work done,” consider a mini Botox facial, also known as “micro-Botox” or “baby Botox.”
Dr. Javier Sosa and our expert team at Woodlands Primary Healthcare, located in The Woodlands, Texas, are pleased to provide mini Botox facials as one of our aesthetics offerings to help you feel more confident about your looks. Take a moment to learn more about this treatment, including how it might benefit you.
How Botox works
Botox contains a toxin that, once injected, paralyzes muscles in the treatment area. Highly versatile, it’s the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily reduce moderate to severe crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
As a bonus, Botox injections are quick and generally well-tolerated, each injection feeling like a tiny pinch. If you have sensitive skin, you can request an ice pack or topical numbing cream beforehand for added comfort.
Within 48 hours of your treatment, you may start seeing results, with full results typically emerging within 30 days. And while individual results vary, they often last for 3-4 months.
Benefits of a mini Botox facial
If you’re seeking especially natural-looking results or don’t wish to fully “erase” the effects of aging, you may be a great candidate for a mini Botox facial. This treatment works just like regular Botox injections, but you’ll receive smaller amounts in desired facial areas.
Mini Botox facial results may also not last quite as long, making it a good choice for people who wish to try Botox for the first time and want to see what the experience and results are like, before committing to a full Botox treatment.
A mini Botox facial also allows you to continue fully expressing yourself facially, versus feeling unable to move your forehead as much as you’d like, while still reducing bothersome fine lines. For this reason, it’s a popular option among actors. If you’re someone for whom expressing empathy is important, such as a therapist, you might appreciate this benefit, too.
