What Is Discreet Or "baby Botox"?

By Denise Sendora

When it comes to enhancing the cosmetic appearance of the skin, botox injections have become an everyday treatment. Not only is treatment safe and effective, it is also extremely affordable, making more and more people opt for this treatment today. It is fairly obvious if a person has had botox treatment because the change is visibly evident, and there still appears to be a small amount of 'stigma' attached to botox injections.

Discreet or 'baby' botox injections are available these days, however. Here we shall take a look at this briefly.

What is baby botox?

People who undergo botox injection treatments prefer to preserve their natural look while reaping the benefits of botox treatment on their lines and wrinkles. Aimed at getting rid of almost all lines and wrinkles on the face, current botox treatments can result in a look that can to some appear unnatural. On the other hand baby botox is aimed at treating just a few lines and wrinkles while preserving certain natural expression lines.

What does baby botox treatment target?

In most cases, baby botox treatments are directed at treating crow's feet (fine lines and wrinkles seen at the corner of the eyes), frown lines and a few wrinkles on the forehead. Other areas, like under the eyes, do not receive injection. To help open up the eyes, the eyebrow may also be injected, and this can have a remarkable impact on the patient's overall appearance. In summary, the natural look is kept because the treatments are strategically limited, but all the benefits of botox are delivered.


After baby botox treatments, as is the case with botox injections, patients report a significant improvement in their look and feel a lot younger. As their natural look is preserved because some common wrinkles are still present, confidence levels are also a lot higher.

Risks with baby botox injections

Regular botox treatment poses the same risks as baby botox because the nature of the injection given is the same. Patients report mild bleeding and bruising at the injection site; this goes away without leaving any scar tissue. The risk of infection is rare because the procedure is done in sterile conditions. Allergic reactions may occur to components within the botox injection but these are rare and there are hardly any reported cases of severe reactions.


Baby botox is becoming more and more popular due to the fact that it preserves the patient's natural look, while getting rid of most of the fine wrinkles on the face. In the future, there is no doubt that this may become the preferred treatment by many patients.
