How Baby Botox Is Changing the Filler Game
The Kardashian look is out, and the Markle look is in! The fuller lips and taut foreheads popularized by the famous reality TV family is being replaced by a more natural look thanks to the influence of America’s own princess, Meghan Markle. The goal is to get a more natural forehead and lip that won’t overpower the other facial features. Many women have already seen the look on Instagram, but few have actually heard of Baby Botox until now.
What Is Baby Botox?
Baby Botox treatments involve targeted microdoses of Botox injected into the face—including the lips and forehead—instead of the full doses. Baby Botox creates a subtler look, using about half the dose of traditional Botox treatments. The smaller dose allows for more movement in the face, creating the natural look popularized by Markle. Instead of a dramatic new look, Baby Botox makes a face look fresh and rejuvenated, similar to a facial.
How Does It Work?
Part of the appeal is that it is primarily a preventive treatment. It’s commonly used by young women who want to prevent wrinkles by changing the way wrinkle-causing muscles move. Many women then continue to use even smaller maintenance doses of the injectable filler to keep the original look. But Baby Botox does have some corrective properties as well, as the filler contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making it ideal for correcting acne and facial scars while improving the skin around the lips and face.
What Kind of Look Will Baby Botox Create?
The blood plasma fillers used for Baby Botox work with the patient’s stem cells to produce natural collagen for a subtler look, giving the skin a natural shine. Brows become slightly lifted for a younger, fresher look around the eyes, which can also help reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. However, people with deep wrinkles might not benefit from the microdoses of Baby Botox and may need traditional Botox treatments instead.
