When people think of Botox, they often visualise the frozen faces of celebrities from many years ago. Wrinkle reduction treatment has come a long way and a frozen appearance is not the desired result anymore. A different form of wrinkle reduction treatment has transpired known as Baby Botox.
What is Baby Botox or Mini Botox?
Baby botox is when botox is injected strategically with minimal doses to reduce the appearance of wrinkles but still retaining facial movement. Baby botox gained its name as it was often the technique used for younger patients whose wrinkles were very mild and did not need the same amount of botox for someone who may have been older with deeper set wrinkles or lines.
Baby botox may also be referred to as mini botox as it is also a great technique to use anyone who is looking to subtly soften fine lines and wrinkles without appearing frozen or unable to make facial expressions.
What is the difference between Botox and Baby Botox?
Baby botox uses the same botulinum toxin solution as standard botox treatment. The difference between botox and baby botox is the technique in which it is used. The best way to describe it is that baby botox treatment is preventative and botox treatment is corrective. Baby botox is best performed on a patient who has not got many lines or winkles but is starting to feel concerned about the effect that ageing is having on their face.
Being able to personalise a botox treatment takes a great deal of experience and knowledge and so those seeking baby botox treatment should find an experienced aesthetics doctor or nurse who knows how to tailor their botox treatments. Everyone’s face is different and larger muscles and deep wrinkles will still need a larger dose of botox to achieve the best results.

Patients who are suitable for Baby Botox include:
- Patients who have never had treatment before
