Better known as Microbotox, it means minuscule doses of this anti-wrinkle potion is injected evenly all over your face superficially with a novel injection technique. This time it is injected under the skin, rather than muscles. It gives you a less oily, less visible pores as well as a firmer skin.
Studies show that botulinum Toxin has beneficial effects on the sebaceous glands (oil glands), blood vessels in the face and on skin texture.
It was found and confirmed by many experienced practitioners that Microbotox Injection do not just affect muscles of facial expressions. Fine muscles in the skin (smooth muscles) which are the same ones which make your hair stand when you experience “goose bumps” are also similarly affected by botulinum Toxin. These smooth muscles are known to control the skin pore size as well as oil and sweat production.
When small doses are injected into the skin, these same muscles’ activities are blocked leading to smaller pores and hence a tightening effect leading to a noticeable “face-lift”. Fine wrinkles will be diminished and the skin texture will be more refined. The other effects are the non-oily, matte and powdered look.
Micro-Anti Wrinkle Injection is recommended for those who want:
- Reduced pore size
- Controlled oil or sweat production
- Reduced fine lines
- Lesser acne breakout
The treatment is well tolerated after some numbing cream prior to the procedure and the use of very fine needles during the treatment. It is safe for all skin types.
There will be redness and swelling for half a day, rarely minor bruising which may take about a week to resolve. These can be covered with make-up after the treatment.
You can see result average 3 to 7 days after the treatment.
About 4 to 6 months.
For more refined pore size, I strongly recommend unclog your pores with either POREfessional Facial or Crystal Clear Facial prior to this treatment. The pores have to be cleaned in order for the microbotox injections to shrink them for a better appearance.
