When it comes to deciding on whether to have Botulinum (Botox) treatments, friends and family are sure to have a lot to say on the matter, one way or another. Having to deal with other people’s judgement on your choices is leading to a new trend in the cosmetic procedures, something that’s being referred to as ‘baby’ Botox.
Don’t worry, it’s nothing to do with actual babies – it actually refers to Botulinum procedures that focus on using smaller, ‘baby’ doses. According to Her, this could as little a 10 units per area, compared to the normal 25 units.
For clients, it’s about keeping that ‘natural’ look, while still being able to lessen the appearance of wrinkles. They want to avoid the stiff, shiny look that can sometimes be associated with injectable procedures, stepping away from the more extreme cosmetic looks. The idea is that you look like the best version of yourself, without anyone knowing that you’ve had any cosmetic procedures – meaning you can avoid those annoying, prying questions.
Celebrities with natural looks, such as Meghan Markle, are spearheading the trend, showcasing how you can have a little work done without the majority of people being able to tell.
‘Baby’ Botulinum treatments are also seen as preventative, helping control how you face muscles move and therefore helping to prevent premature ageing.
Of course, this is just a look that one group of people are looking to achieve, and whether you want to opt for more Botulinum treatments or you’re happy to embrace your wrinkles, as long as you love how you look, that’s all that’s important.
