Botox injections have become the go-to medical aesthetic treatment when it comes to enhancing the appearance of the skin. (After all, over 7 million Botox treatments were performed in 2016!)
These days, however, discreet or “baby Botox” has become popular. And no, it doesn’t involve babies.
What is Baby Botox?
The concept “baby Botox” (or discreet Botox) has been around for years, but it has only recently become popular due to the fact it preserves clients natural look, while getting rid of most fine wrinkles.
Here’s the thought-process: Baby Botox uses a smaller (baby) dose of Botox, which gives you some of the anti-aging and preventative benefits of regular Botox treatments. Because you are using a smaller dosage of the botulinum toxin, you will continue to have some facial expression and movement. And it’s possible that you will have to schedule a follow-up visit sooner as it will take less time for the product to dissolve.
Baby Botox treatments leave you with a more natural-looking appearance, which will make the injections harder to detect if others are looking at you.
Where Can Botox Be Injected?
As a cosmetic nurse, you will learn during Botox training that there are 3 areas of the face where Botox is commonly injected:
- Between the eyebrows. By injecting a few units of Botox between the eyebrows, this can reduce the appearance of frown lines, which are the two vertical lines that create an “11.”
- The forehead. Commonly called frown lines, the forehead is one of the most common amongst the 3 areas of the face Botox is injected. It’s natural for wrinkles to form on this area of the face, because the forehead muscles are constantly being used. Botox can be applied to the forehead in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines that appear on the forehead.
- Crow’s feet. To create an overall younger appearance, Botox injections can be used on the side of your eyes, which are most commonly referred to as crow’s feet. These cosmetic injections can reduce these lines without giving the skin a stretched appearance.
In addition to the FDA-approved uses, there are many off-label uses for Botox, including the lips for a “lip pop,” the eyebrow arch and platysmal bands.
