Many of us know how conventional Botox works – injecting Botox in the muscles to obstruct muscle contractions thereby eliminating dynamic lines and wrinkles. But what about MicroBotox? How is this Botox-based technique different and what are its benefits?
For the last couple of decades, Botox has only been used the conventional way. It wasn’t until recently that a newer Botox treatment technique, known as MicroBotox, started to gain in popularity around the world. While it’s been a big thing in countries like the U.S. and Korea, this treatment is still relatively new to the Canadian market. So new that the there is only one place you can get this treatment in Richmond Hill: the GMA Clinic.
With MicroBotox, instead of injecting Botox directly into the facial muscles, Botox is injected into the dermis of our skin with a needle as fine as a single strand of hair. The penetration of the Botox is relatively superficial compared to the conventional method of application. MicroBotox is most often applied to the hairline, forehead, nose, jawline, around eyes, and around cheeks.
Benefits of MicroBotox: The Non-Invasive Facelift & Smooth, Flawless Skin
When Botox is injected in strategic locations of the dermis, it tightens and lifts the skin. In other words, MicroBotox essentially gives patients a natural-looking facelift.
After treatment, patients will see noticeable improvements in the skin’s texture, with skin appearing smoother and rejuvenated. Fine lines and wrinkles will be less apparent and pore sizes will be reduced.
In addition to lifting and rejuvenating the skin, MicroBotox also helps to normalize oil production, allowing the skin to become less oily, congested and overall less prone to acne.
Because the 34-gauge MicroBotox needle is so thin, and only goes a short distance in our skin, patients typically feel no pain and discomfort.
Treatment sessions are typically between 15-40 minutes depending on the treatment areas and needs of the patients. Effects last between 3-4 months as it varies from patient to patient. It is important to note that MicroBotox lasts the same amount of time as conventional Botox, although application methods and results vary.
