What is Skin Botox?
- Posted on: Jun 21 2019
Skin Botox is has become increasingly popular recently and for legitimate reasons. Skin Botox involves the use of a small needle to superficially inject Botox approximately 50 times along the jawline, forehead and under the eyes. Skin Botox is so superficial that it does not affect the muscles like traditional Botox treatments. Instead, Skin Botox will gives patients an airbrushed, filtered finish to the skin.
This treatment was started in Seoul, South Korea and is extremely popular because of the “instant glass” finish patients get without any magic serums or downtime. Skin Botox is also commonly used to minimize excess forehead sweat, which then decreases the amount of oil production. This popular South Korean treatment can also improve, and sometime even banish, chronic acne due to the decreased production of the sweat and oil glands in the skin.

Traditional Botox vs. Skin Botox
As mentioned before, Skin Botox is injected very superficially into the skin and does not effect the facial muscles. Unlike Skin Botox, traditional Botox treatments require about 5 pokes depending on what area or areas are being treated. Traditional Botox is injected directly into the muscle in areas like your forehead, glabella and crow’s feet. Just like Botox, skin Botox lasts approximately 3 to 5 months.
Skin Botox is an “off-label” treatment and is not FDA approved treatment. Botox is used in many areas of the face and neck for cosmetic purposes but currently only FDA approved for the forehead, glabella and crow’s feet lines.

AquaGold is the “Skin Botox” type treatment we offer and love the “air-brushed” result it gives the skin. AquaGold is more than Botox and contains a cocktail of diluted Botox, Juvederm Volbella (hyaluronic acid) and vitamin serums that are delivered into the skin through twenty 24K pure gold-plated stainless steel needles. This is much more comfortable treatment than multiple Botox needle injections and easier to tolerate than standard skin rejuvenation. Topical numbing cream is available though most patients need it.
AquaGold offers Skin Botox benefits with the addition of HA and vitamins for enhanced results.
