Everything to know about Micro-Botox/Dysport: A perfect alternative to a regular dose of Botox or Dysport

If you’ve been on the internet, then chances are you’ve heard of “Micro-Botox.” From A-list comedians to Tik Tok influencers, it seems like everyone is getting in on one of the latest aesthetic trends of the year.

Let’s take a look at what makes this approach different from regular botox injections.

What is “Micro-Botox?”

“Micro-Botox” is an aesthetic technique that uses neuromodulators such as Botox®️ or Dysport®️ in a small amount to tighten pores, reduce sweat production, and overall can improve your acne.


But what makes it different from regular Botox/Dysport?

The amount used is what primarily makes it different from using full doses of botox; however, there are some other distinctions to keep in mind when comparing the two techniques.

Since “Micro-Botox” is injected superficially into the skin rather than being injected directly, it’s used to target the skin only. This means that “Micro-Botox” does not completely smoothen out your wrinkles or fine lines.

Is it the same as “Micro-Dysport?”

Yes, “Micro-Botox” goes by many names such as:

  • Micro-Dysport
  • Baby Botox
  • Intradermal Botox
  • Mesobotox
  • And so on…


What are the benefits?

There are many benefits to using “Micro-Botox” instead of – or as well as – a regular dose. These include:

  • Reduced pore size
  • Reduced oily skin
  • Prevention of acne breakouts
  • Improved symmetry of facial features or fine lines around the eyes due to the treatment of delicate facial muscles that can not be reached by regular Botox®️ injections
  • Does not “freeze” any large muscles, therefore it does not affect your expressive or emotional facial features
  • Reduce excessive sweating and oil production
  • Reduce appearance of rosacea

Any side effects?

Like any treatment, there are side effects to keep in mind. The most common side effects include:

  • Minor swelling
  • Slight bruising
  • Redness
  • Irritation
  • Uneven texture


How long does it last?

Just like any other neuromodulator, “Micro-Botox” can last anywhere from three to four months. Results may vary.
