A botox facial combines a microneedling procedure with topical serums and botox to deliver customized skin solutions deep into the epidermis but not to the underlying muscle, allowing the botox to tighten the skin but not freeze the face.
About the Procedure
A botox facial utilizes the micro-channels created during a microneedling treatment to deliver serums deep into skin without effecting muscle movement. Other microneedling procedures incorporate PRP or stem cell growth factor serums to enhance the wound healing cascade that naturally stimulates collagen and elastin production which creates younger, more rejuvenated looking skin. Botox, however, has the added affect of a slight tightening of the skin. A botox facial is a great option for individuals who seek a non-invasive option to smooth fine lines but are concerned about looking frozen, which is a result of overdone botox. After cleansing the skin and applying numbing anesthetic, the microneedling device of choice (often a rolling or pen-like system) is then gently moved across the treatment area, creating many, tiny, micro-injuries. The microneedling devices may vary, but the size of the needle is typically 0.1-0.25mm in diameter. There are a number of ways to deliver the botox based serum into the skin. The microneedling device itself may have an internal system that simultaneously delivers the botox into the skin during the collagen-induction therapy, the practitioner may spread the serum over the skin and then perform the microneedling treatment, or the botox serum may be spread over the created micro-channels after the procedure has been completed.
