Is Micro Botox less lasting than regular botox ?

Micro Botox is a technique to combat pores and oily skin and get that smoother "airbrushed" skin. It is a different dose than regular botox and the botox is injected differently and usually spread throughout a wide area. Micro Botox is usually injected in the T-zone area, through the entire face, in the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin area. This will give you a smoother finish. Micro Botox may last a little less than regular botox, so more likely to last 2-4 months. Other ways to combat oily skin is use glycolic acid or athelyhdroxy products to help in oil production. And when oil production decreases, pores will appear diminished. If you want to only address pores and not only oily skin, with the correct type of skin tone, then you can also consider IPL. This will also give your skin a nice finish.
Micro-Botox is not the same as Botox
The same number of units are used but they are dispersed across a wider are. The key is placement in the skin, not the muscles, so the pores tighten, the neck and forehead are smoother and the skin looks radiant.
Micro-Botox goes beyond what Botox will do for the skin and complexion. The results from Micro-Botox are amazing.

We do not set expectations for our patients that Botox will help with large pores and rather have laser treatments and products that help with that.

Micro Botox and Length of Duration
Micro Botox lasts the same amount of time as "regular" Botox. Using smaller micro amounts or "baby" Botox leads to more subtle, natural results. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Botox for the best cosmetic results.
