You may not be ready for botox but do you need botox in small doses just to stop signs of ageing? Ideal for oncoming signs of ageing and candidates as young as in their 20s, meso botox is the talk of the town. Here’s everything you need to know about baby botox.
What Is Mesobotox or Baby Botox?
Botulinum toxin, the primary ingredient in Botox is widely known for anti-ageing abilities. Instead of just using botulinum toxin, mesotherapy or mesobotox uses diluted botox along with hyaluronic acid in small doses onto specific areas of your face.
How Is It Different From Botox?
Unlike a proper Botox session, baby botox uses botulinum toxin in small concentration in a higher volume. Instead of injecting it in the deeper layers of your skin, mesobetox is into the inter-dermal layer of the skin.
Where Can It Be Used?
It is mainly being used to treated mid-face, for example, smile lines and wrinkles around lips, mouth and neck. It is also used for facial flushing, reducing sebum production and pore size. Research studies have also reported an improvement in skin texture.
Is It Painful?
A numbing agent is applied to your face to reduce the patient’s discomfort. There is little to no downtime and you can return back to work as soon as you leave. Your dermatologist may advise you to stay away from certain medication.
