Whether you’ve gotten Botox® yet or not, if you’ve searched it you probably received a flood of content. While there is plenty of medically sound information and education publicly available, such as the benefits of Botox and Botox FAQ’s, there is also a great deal of misinformation. Today we are going to discuss baby Botox and its duration.
What is Baby Botox?
Baby Botox is a term often used for the quantity of neurotoxin used at the time of the injection service. It is a lower amount than a more standard “dose” although dosage amounts of any time are entirely based on the individual receiving the Botox injection.
Can I request Baby Botox?
If you’ve ever searched, “how often should I get Botox?” or “how much botox should I get?” you might have seen the term “baby Botox.” One big myth is that Botox lasts for the same amount of time no matter how much you get and gives the impression that one can just ask for a “lower dose.” Unfortunately, this is not true. Botox, its effectiveness, and its duration is dependent upon an individual’s facial muscles, the amount injected, and a myriad of other details that can improve or decrease the likelihood of a natural application that lasts as long as it should. Baby Botox should only come at the recommendation of an experienced injector based on your individual needs and not at your request.
Baby Botox is Not For Everyone
A qualified injector makes their recommendations based on your individual needs and in many cases, baby Botox is not enough to provide satisfactory results. If enough Botox is not injected to completely freeze the muscle, the results may not take or they will wear off faster than they should.
At the end of the day, it’s best to do your research and find a qualified and experienced injector so that you know you can fully trust their recommendation.
