Are you in search of an anti-aging treatment that will keep your skin looking truly natural? Micro–Botox can subtly tighten your skin, reduce oiliness, and remove acne scars without affecting your facial muscles. Micro–Botox is a treatment where multiple micro-droplets of diluted Botox is infused into the skin cells and the dermis, designed to treat and improve wrinkles, pore size and skin texture.
This treatment targets the sweat and oil glands in your skin, as well as the muscle responsible for opening your pores, in order to tighten your skin. Unlike traditional Botox, Micro–Botox is performed only at the superficial level of your skin which means your muscles are unaffected, and you will retain a natural, more youthful complexion. Micro–Botox treatments can also be used to eliminate fine lines around your eyes, something traditional Botox cannot accomplish.
What does the treatment involve?
CONSULTATION: At the start of any Micro-Botox treatment a thorough consultation will take place, where our specialized dermatologist will evaluate your skin and discuss with you your specific skin needs and concerns.
PROCESS: The face is cleansed and sterilized. The specialized dermatologist will then use a fine needle to inject a diluted Botox solution into various strategic locations of the skin. Depending on the area and the need of the patient, the penetration of the Botox can be relatively superficial compared to the conventional method of application where Botox is only injected into the muscles below the skin. The Botox injections compel your sweat glands and sebaceous glands (which secrete oils and contribute to acne) to shrink. This means more natural results – the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced without you having to worry about looking unnatural or frozen. The result is smoother and clearer skin.
TIME: The procedure takes about 30 minutes.
FINISHING: After the procedure, you might notice redness for the first few hours after the treatment, this is normal and will subside.
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS NEEDED: You will achieve optimal results if treatments are performed once a month for around three months.
