Micro-Botox refers to the injection of multiple small doses of Botox into the skin. It’s injected superficially and therefore only targets the skin, where oil production, facial flushing, and acne occur. But it differs from conventional Botox as it does not iron out wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. That’s right: Botox injected at the top layer of the skin works to control oil and redness while making pores appear smaller, which could mean fewer breakouts, but won’t stamp out wrinkles.

How long does it last? 

Just like Botox applied in the traditional way (injected into the muscle), micro-Botox lasts up to three or four months; however, there are some potential long-term benefits when mixed with H.A. filler. 

Micro Botox Advantages

  • Reduces pore size
  • Tightens and smooths skin
  • Diminishes acne scar appearance
  • Lessens oil production
  • Reverses acne-causing inflammation
  • Provides natural looking results
  • Superficial injection– leaves facial muscles unaffected
  • Non-permanent treatment

This treatment results in youthful looking skin and a refreshed appearance: without the drawbacks of other Botox treatments. Unlike traditional Botox, Micro Botox is performed at a superficial level. This keeps facial muscles safe from the “freezing” effect common associated with Botox injections.

For some patients, Micro Botox treatment can treat both acne-causing inflammation and acne scarring. Micro Botox effects are not permanent and may be reapplied after a few months.
