Micro Botox Treatment
Micro Botox (also known as meso or intradermal botox) is an advanced Botox-based technique developed to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and in some cases even acne. For this procedure, Botox is highly diluted into a solution of skin-hydrating agents and then injected in small doses into the dermis, the inner layer of your skin, in various places on the face and neck. This innovative technique opens new dimensions of skin rejuvenation.
Micro Botox is new to the United States, with few practices offering the benefits of treatment. As a pioneering Bay Area cosmetic plastic surgeon, Dr. Usha Rajagopal has adopted this technique into her practice. At the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, we perform Micro Botox treatments at our state-of-the-art location in downtown San Francisco.

How Micro Botox Works
Micro Botox injections cause your sweat glands, as well as your sebaceous glands (which secrete an oil that can contribute to the development of acne), to shrink and atrophy; they also visibly reduce pore size. The result of these changes is skin that is smoother, clearer, and less oily. And since the injections are made superficially instead of into the facial muscles, Micro Botox does not cause the loss of movement the “frozen” effect that regular Botox treatments can. Rather, Micro Botox works just underneath the surface of your skin to fill out the lines and wrinkles being targeted, leading to a translucent glow that makes your skin look healthy and more youthful.
Micro Botox Advantages
- Reduces pore size
- Tightens and smooths skin
- Diminishes acne scar appearance
- Lessens oil production
- Reverses acne-causing inflammation
- Provides natural looking results
- Superficial injection– leaves facial muscles unaffected
- Non-permanent treatment
This treatment results in youthful looking skin and a refreshed appearance: without the drawbacks of other Botox treatments. Unlike traditional Botox, Micro Botox is performed at a superficial level. This keeps facial muscles safe from the “freezing” effect common associated with Botox injections.
For some patients, Micro Botox treatment can treat both acne-causing inflammation and acne scarring. Micro Botox effects are not permanent and may be reapplied after a few months.
Our Micro Botox Treatment
Dr. Rajagopal delivers Micro Botox using tiny needles to place the injections strategically in various locations on the face and neck, just below the skin’s surface. Some patients find the procedure uncomfortable, but not extraordinarily so. Some patients experience erythema (redness of the skin) after treatment, which can last for around 72 hours afterward. The course of treatment (number of visits required and their frequency) can vary from patient to patient, depending on factors such as skin quality and level of sun exposure between treatments.
