Have you heard of “MicroBotox?” It’s a truly amazing technique using Botox as a treatment for extra oily skin, enlarged pores, rhinophyma (hypertrophy of the nose), inflamed rosacea, neck crepiness and smoothening in décolletage area.
If I hadn’t seen the treatment and results with my own eyes, I am not sure I would believe it!
We all know that Botox is used cosmetically for diminishing lines and wrinkles. When used for that purpose, Botox is injected into the muscle to inhibit certain nerves from firing, resulting in a more relaxed, smoother appearance to treatment area. Botox can also be injected shallowly into the skin (intradermally) to produce numerous and miraculous effects, including leaving your skin with a beautiful, smooth, almost matte-like finish, as if you just clciked “airbrush” in your photo editor.
Botox, when placed intradermally:
• Significantly diminishes oil production
• Reverses the inflammatory process that causes acne and rosacea
• Helps smooth the texture of the skin
• Diminishes the appearance of acne scars
• Reduces large pores
This treatment does not affect the major muscles that control facial movements, yet it still works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The main objective of MesoBotox is to relax the orbicular muscles to cause the reopening of orifices. The net effect of MesoBotox is improved sheen of the face with smooth skin, tighter pores and yet the ability to move all the deeper muscles of the face thus retaining a natural, non “plastic” appearance. It also reduces pore size and oil production, even helping with acne. Micro Botox gives your skin a smooth, shine-free appearance, and no “frozen” look.
How is it different than regular Botox?
Meso Botox works in the superficial layers of the skin. It takes more injections, but less Botox is injected with each injection. Because there are more injections, it is a little more painful, so we can use topical anaesthetic to make it more comfortable. You may get redness of the face after the injection for a day or two, which doesn’t happen with traditional Botox injections.
How long does it last?
It lasts the same amount of time as regular Botox: 3-4 months.
