Baby Botox is trending...wait, what?

As people who started using anti-aging creams in college, we understand that ours is a youth-obsessed society. But even we were shocked when we recently heard someone mention the phrase "Baby Botox."

Umm...excuse us?

Thankfully, despite what it sounds like, Baby Botox is not an anti-wrinkle treatment for babies. It's way less scary. As it turns out, Baby Botox is a term used to describe a light-handed amount of Botox for people (read: adults) who want to soften the lines on their faces without hindering their movement.

Instead of injecting the standard amount of botulinum toxin (Botox's official name), licensed practitioners inject a tiny, barely noticeable amount. Also note that these results won't last as long, meaning you'll have to go back more frequently than you would with normal Botox.

Still, Baby Botox is ideal for people wanting a subtly refreshed look without the potential for the frozen-face situation you know you've seen a time or 12. Apparently, it's also popular among actors, whose profession depends on being able to emote.

Now if you'll excuse us, we're gonna do a quick scan of cosmetic derms in our area.
