How do fillers work?

Baby Botox uses the same Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX® ) solution for the injections in the same strength. However, small amounts are used and are placed extremely carefully into the fine dynamic facial muscles where they will relax the muscle contractions by blocking nerve impulses. This allows the skin to appear smooth and less lined. The results are achieved without any hint of the frozen look so that the skin appears softer and younger.

The most common areas for injection are:

  • around the eyes (crow’s feet)

  • the forehead

The treatment is not permanent, so patients should anticipate re-treatments every few months to prevent further wrinkles from appearing, though each injection should also reduce the depth of newer wrinkles. In this respect, Botox can also be used preventatively, to delay the appearance of wrinkles.

Is Botox safe?


BOTOX has been used for many years in both cosmetic and medical treatments. It is the most popular non-surgical treatment in the UK and in the world by far.


Are there any negative side-effects?



The most common side-effects of BOTOX® are mild pain and tenderness around the point of injection as well as very mild swelling, which should subside within 48 hours. Very occasionally, the treatment may cause other muscle groups to relax, which can give the appearance of drooping eyebrows or eyelids. This is rare, and should subside within a few weeks.
