Complete Guide To a Botox Microinfusion Facial
Botox Microinfusion Facial is a relatively new cosmetic treatment that combines small amounts of Botox, hyaluronic acid, proprietary Vitamin C and Peptides to improve the appearance of the skin, creating a smooth texture, reducing pore size, facial redness and tiny fine lines.
This facial treatment, also known as a “skin smoothie,” is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment and skin tone rejuvenation method involving injecting tiny amounts of Botox with 24k gold plated needles and applying special serums mentioned, which can result in a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
In contrast, deep Botox injections treat facial muscles such as deep frowns and forehead lines, crows feet, TMJ migraines and neck bands. Botox microinfusion facial does not relax and freeze muscles like Botox injected deeper.
Here we dive deeper into the Botox Microinfusion Facial procedure, its benefits and side effects.
How Is The Botox Microinfusion Facial Performed?
The Botox Microinfusion Facial should be performed by a trained professional, such as a dermatologist, plastic surgeon or a medspa with medical professionals.
The procedure usually takes around twenty minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of mini-injections needed.
Before the procedure, the medical professional will typically clean and prepare the skin. A topical numbing cream may be applied to help minimize any discomfort during the process.
Skin-targeted serums will be stamped into the superficial layers of the skin with 24k gold-plated needles. The tiny injections are typically spaced out evenly across the treatment area. The depth and amount of product injected can be adjusted depending on the patient’s needs and desired results.
Treatment can be repeated every four to six weeks. Five to six treatments, three to four weeks apart, are recommended initially, with the maintenance done twice a year.
