What is Micro Botox?
Micro Botox is the injection of neuromodulators, such as Botox or Dysport, into the inner layer of the skin to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne. By strategically injecting this highly diluted solution, Dr. Ellie can help you achieve your skin rejuvenation goals. Essential Aesthetics is one of the first medical spas to offer this treatment in the Bay Area.
How does Micro Botox work?
When injected, Micro Botox causes your sweat and sebaceous glands to shrink, visibly reducing pore size. This causes the skin to appear smoother, clearer, and less oily. Unlike regular Botox injections, Micro Botox is injected superficially, so there is no loss of movement or a “frozen” look on the face.
Micro Botox can be used to:
- Reduce pore size
- Tighten and smooth skin
- Reduce the appearance of crepey skin around the eyes
- Tighten the jawline
- Diminish acne scar appearance
- Lessen oil production
- Reverse acne-causing inflammation
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite
