What are people saying about ‘baby’ Botox?
For one, this isn’t your mother’s Botox.
Up until recently, many skin care patients and professionals would wait until their 40s or 50s (or later) to treat fine lines and wrinkles with Botox. These days, people in their 20s and 30s are getting started with Botox much sooner.
By exploring Botox at an earlier age, younger patients are preventing facial lines and wrinkles from ever forming in the first place. This proactive approach, known as “preventative” Botox or “baby Botox,” has become an increasingly popular procedure around the world.
But is baby Botox right for you?
To help you find out, we’ve compiled a collection of fast facts and testimonials from baby Botox professionals and patients alike. Here’s what they have to say.
“If you’re an injectable beginner, ‘baby Botox’ could be for you. It’s also a popular treatment for first-timers or younger clients opting for the treatment for preventative reasons as it gives a more natural look.”

“A typical Botox treatment can consist of 30 to 50 units, whereas a Baby Botox treatment may consist of 20 to 30 units. The effect of the reduced dose is a more subtle outcome and can be used for those on a budget, those seeking subtle results, or those who are just getting started with treatment at a younger age range.”

“It’s been crazy to see the progress. If more people had told me what you can do with Botox sooner, I think I would have gone a couple of years earlier.”
