Micro (also known as meso or intradermal) Botox is a technique that was developed in recent years to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and in some cases even acne. In this procedure, Botox is highly diluted into a solution of skin-hydrating agents, and then injected in small doses into the dermis, the inner layer of your skin, in various places on the face and neck.
How Micro Botox Works
Micro Botox injections cause your sweat glands, as well as your sebaceous glands (which secrete an oil that can contribute to the development of acne), to shrink and atrophy; they also visibly reduce pore size. The result of these changes is skin that is smoother, clearer, and less oily. And since the injections are made superficially instead of into the facial muscles, Micro Botox does not cause the loss of movement the frozen effect that regular Botox treatments can. Rather, Micro Botox works just underneath the surface of your skin to fill out the lines and wrinkles being targeted, leading to a translucent glow that makes your skin look healthy and more youthful
Micro Botox Treatment
Pam Sloop, FNP-C delivers Micro Botox using tiny needles to place the injections strategically in various locations on the face and neck, just below the skins surface. Some patients find the procedure uncomfortable, but not extraordinarily so. Some patients experience erythema (redness of the skin) after treatment, which can last for around 72 hours afterward. Course of treatment (number of visits required and their frequency) can vary from patient to patient, depending on factors such as skin quality and level of sun exposure between treatments.
When you minimize pores, this results in a smaller skin surface area. This stretches the skin out over the face, and causes an inadvertent facelift, known in our clinic as the BOTOX lift.
For optimal effect, we recommend that Micro BOTOX be done together with Fraxel, Laser 360 or IPL for the maximum results.
