Fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, acne scars and oily skin are but some of the many skin issues women deal with. Billions of dollars are spent every year on skincare and cosmetic products in an attempt to achieve smoother and younger-looking skin. 


However, many times, these products can leave the skin looking worse and with more problems. Hence, if you are amongst the millions of women looking for aesthetic treatments to give you even and refined skin tone, Microbotox could be the solution for you. 


Microbotox is not a well-kept secret in the cosmetic industry, but not everyone knows exactly what is involved in it either.



How Microbotox Works 

Microbotox (also called Meso Botox, Intradermal Botox, or Baby Botox) is a revolutionary Botox-based procedure used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, oily skin and in some cases, acne and rosacea. 


It works by targeting the sweat glands, oil glands and the erector pili muscles, shrinking them to minimise the pores and thereby reduce excessive sweating and oiliness of the skin. This results in skin that is tighter, smoother, more refined with less fine lines and wrinkles. Many women have also reported that the procedure gave their skin a poreless, lifted and “powdered” look. 


Botox vs Microbotox

Botox in Singapore is a trademarked name for the neurotoxin injectable that is employed for the procedure. It is used to weaken the muscles so the wrinkles created by the said muscles will not form as well. It is measured by units and the recommended number of which depends on the following factors:


How strong your muscles are

Where the wrinkles are located; and

How much movement you want after the procedure


In Microbotox, the Botox is diluted and fewer units are used. It is injected into the dermis — the inner layer of your skin—in the areas where wrinkles have already formed or will form. It selectively targets ageing signs such as:


Crow’s Feet

Frown Lines

Glabellar Folds

Sagging Skin

Gaunt, Sunken Features

Deep Folds

Large Pores

Acne Scars


Because the injections are performed on a superficial level, Microbotox will retain your facial expression and natural movement with a lessened appearance of wrinkles. It is in contrast to the conventional Botox injections that may affect the muscles involved in your facial expression hence, opening new dimensions of natural-looking skin rejuvenation.



Benefits of Microbotox 

As mentioned above, Microbotox helps in minimising pores, tightening of the skin, and fading away imperfections without the drawbacks of the traditional Botox procedures, In addition to these, there are far more advantages that Microbotox has to offer:


Fast Treatment – A Microbotox treatment usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. A numbing cream may be applied prior to the procedure, although you may find it unnecessary. 


Visible Results After One Treatment – With Microbotox, you can expect to see results in as fast as 3-4 days after the initial treatment. Meanwhile, you should enjoy maximum results within 7-10 days. 


Long-Lasting Solution – While Microbotox isn’t a permanent solution, its effects may last anywhere from 3-6 months. You may undergo repeated treatments to maintain desired results. 


Save Time and Money – What’s more, because the treatment will greatly improve your skin for several months, it will cut down your need for expensive skincare rituals and cosmetic products. 


Zero Downtime – On top of all these, there’s no downtime involved with the procedure. It means you can resume your regular activities almost immediately after treatment. 



Microbotox is relatively new in Singapore, with only a few certified aesthetic clinics —including Shiro Aesthetic Clinic — offering the treatment. Consultation with a doctor is required to determine the appropriate procedure for you.
