One of the latest beauty trends to be talked about this year is the focus on a more natural style of beauty regimen. This trend encompasses a healthy diet, exercise and beauty treatments. A phrase that appears alongside these articles and discussions in beauty magazines and has now even transcended into mainstream television media is the term Botox “sprinkles.” It is even one of the top ‘Botox’ keyword variants in Google trends in the last few months, thanks to a few of our favorite celebrities popularizing this phrase.
This treatment is often described as a method of helping to maintain the appearance of the skin but without the full effect or “frozen” or artificial appearance that BOTOX® can be associated with.
So, what are Botox Sprinkles exactly?
In simple terms, Botox Sprinkles is the same Botox treatment that we know and love, but just done in smaller quantities, or in other words by spreading or sprinkling the treatment around the target area. Another term for this type of treatment is ‘baby’ Botox.
One proponent of Botox Sprinkles is the actress, Robin Wright, who has mentioned in interviews that she has an occasional light Botox session, which she herself described as Botox Sprinkles. One of the key issues highlighted by Robin Wright was that aging is an irreversible process that we all have to go through and effectively embrace. Some individuals are happy to have a lot of different treatments to stave off the aging process as long as possible, whereas other prefer an approach which involves more subtle procedures, and Botox sprinkles falls into this secondary category.
One of the best uses for Botox Sprinkles is in the treatment of fine lines in the face, which can help reduce the appearance of them and make the face appear more youthful and healthier looking. For individuals who have wrinkles that are a little heavier then this type of treatment is less effective and in fact a regular session of Botox may in fact be more the better treatment to use.
Another great use for Botox Sprinkles is when it is used as a combination treatment since this can compliment a range of other procedures, to help provide overall improvements to a number of different areas. For example, Juvederm Voluma XC works well for providing extra volume to the cheek area, and this can be combined well with Botox sprinkles.
