Microtox in Manchester and Cheshire

Microtox, also referred to as "Baby Botox" or "Micro Botox," is a cosmetic procedure that involves the injection of small amounts of diluted botulinum toxin into the upper layers of the skin. Unlike traditional Botox treatments that target the muscles to reduce wrinkles, Microtox focuses on refining the skin's appearance, improving texture, and addressing issues like enlarged pores, fine lines, and skin laxity.

How Does Microtox Work?

At CLNQ in Cheshire & Manchester Microtox involves using a very fine needle to inject a diluted form of botulinum toxin into the superficial layers of the skin. This differs from traditional Botox injections, which are typically administered deeper to target the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. The dilution and the shallow depth of the Microtox injections mean that they do not affect muscle movement as significantly but instead work by tightening the skin and reducing oil and sweat production.

The mechanism of action in Microtox is thought to involve the relaxation of tiny muscles around the hair follicles and pores, leading to a smoother skin surface and refined pores. The procedure also may indirectly improve skin hydration and texture by altering the local microenvironment of the skin.

Cost of Microtox

The cost of Microtox at CLNQ ranges from £175 to £350 per session. Factors such as the extent of the area being treated and the specific goals of the treatment also influence the cost.

Benefitsof Microtox

With Microtox Manchester & Cheshire patients can expect several aesthetic benefits, including:

  • Improved Skin Texture: By targeting the superficial layers of the skin, Microtox can help achieve a smoother and more refined skin texture.
  • Pore Reduction: It is particularly noted for its effectiveness in reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.
  • Decrease in Oil Production: Those with oily skin may find that Microtox helps in reducing the amount of oil the skin produces.
  • Subtle Enhancement: Microtox provides a more subtle enhancement compared to traditional Botox, making it suitable for younger patients or those seeking less dramatic changes.
  • Minimal Downtime: The procedure involves minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily activities shortly after treatment.

Differences BetweenMicrotox and Botox

While both Microtox and Botox involve the use of botulinum toxin, there are key differences between the two:

  • Depth of Injection: Microtox is injected into the superficial layers of the skin, whereas Botox is injected into the muscles.
  • Purpose: Microtox aims to improve skin texture and reduce pores without significantly affecting muscle movement. In contrast, Botox primarily targets muscle activity to reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
  • Dilution: The botulinum toxin used in Microtox is more diluted than that used in traditional Botox treatments.
  • Results: The effects of Microtox are generally more subtle and focus on skin quality. Botox results are more pronounced in terms of reducing wrinkles and altering facial expressions.


Microtox represents a nuanced approach to skin rejuvenation, offering benefits that are distinct from those of traditional Botox. It is ideal for individuals looking for subtle improvements in skin texture and pore size without the muscle relaxation effects that come with standard Botox treatments.
