Your gut response to those words together might have been confusion. Botox for babies? Don't worry, that's not what we're talking about here. Instead, it's simply a smaller amount of Botox.
Baby Botox refers to "a micro-droplet technique of injection fewer units more precisely and superficially to give a more natural and even look."
When performing Baby Botox, we don't completely relax the muscle. This makes it so you can preserve your facial expressions.
Baby Botox is spread across the face in smaller amounts and may be best suited for people who want to get a head start on anti-aging measures or those who have lighter lines.
Baby Botox "works best for younger patients, or patients who have less defined/etched lines. If you have deeper lines, you may want to go with the traditional Botox.
Another benefit of Baby Botox is that it can also be used in more areas of the face and body than the traditional-strength treatment. Baby Botox can be focused into the usual areas where you would have traditional Botox, the frown lines, forehead, and crow’s feet, but Baby Botox can also be used to give a lot of areas.
We can use it on the neck to lift, on the décolletage to tighten any fine lines, and under the arms to prevent sweating. If BOTOX® is being used as The BOTOX® Lift, we strongly recommend that it be done with IPL and Laser for best results.

The process is the same as regular Botox injections. The only real difference is the amount used and possibly the number of total injections.
The idea is that we don't completely relax the muscle so that there is no movement (frozen look), but instead weaken it enough so that it doesn't contract with the same intensity (resulting in a smoother appearance of any facial lines. Rather than look completely frozen, there is still some natural facial expression.
