MicroBotox refers to a special way of injecting Botox into the skin. Botox is a neuromodulator that is typically injected into muscles through a very fine needle to address fine lines and wrinkles. With MicroBotox, the Botox is injected through a special microneedling system called Aquagold FineTouch®, which deposits the Botox within the very top-most layers of the skin, to shrink large pores and reduce redness from rosacea and overactive capillaries.
The 24-karat gold microneedles are thinner than a strand of hair and use tiny microchannels that swirl down the length of the microneedle to deliver the Botox into the skin, in an even distribution. We’ve always thought that Botox could be a treatment for pore size and overactive capillaries and rosacea flushing, but we were never able to inject in it small enough doses in an even distribution to just the very top layers of the skin. Now we’re seeing amazing results that last longer than alternative treatments, like chemical peels, facials, and lasers, and there’s no downtime.
MicroBotox Botox Injection Technique
The Microneedles used for MicroBotox are so thin that most patients don’t feel anything during the treatment. There is also numbing fluid included in the liquid injected during the treatment. However, we can use a numbing cream if you’re concerned about the treatment being uncomfortable or are particularly sensitive.
This rosacea sufferer was experiencing a particularly bad flare when she came to us to try MicroBotox. What’s important to note here, is that her skin calmed down within 1 week of application, and stayed clear for 3 months. Most rosacea sufferers know that calming a flare down isn’t the real battle – it’s keeping that flare from coming back that’s very difficult.
MicroBotox treats the skin, rather than the muscles, reducing large pores and clearing away redness in the skin caused by overactive capillaries. In particular, this works very well for Rosacea sufferers.

- Is there downtime or recovery after microbotox?
The MicroBotox treatment uses very fine needles that are thinner than a strand of hair. It’s very rare that you would even experience pinprick bleeding from the procedure. Because of this, there’s very little downtime or recovery after the procedure. You should expect minor redness during the procedure, which should completely fade within a few minutes to 1 hour after. There should not be any swelling or bruising or other visible signs of the procedure after the redness subsides.
- How long will results last?
There’s no definitive study on the duration of results from this application of Botox, yet. However, what we’ve seen in patients points toward a similar duration to injected Botox, around 3-4 months.
- Am I am candidate for microbotox?
Most patients that are candidates for Botox would be candidates for MicroBotox. A good candidate has no history of neuromuscular disease, no previous allergic reactions to Botox or lidocaine (please mention these to us, as we have different options available for patients with allergies), and is not pregnant or breastfeeding.
- How much does micro botox cost?
The most common area we’re treating with MicroBotox is the cheeks, which is $500. This includes the cost of Botox. Typically when we treat the entire face, there are other components mixed into the treatment, to create a multi-purpose serum. We call this MicroRejuve, as it includes not only Botox but also dermal fillers and/or anti-aging vitamins.
