Microbotox is the administration of multiple microdroplets of botulinum toxin in intradermal plane. It is increasingly becoming popular owing to its more favorable outcome and better safety profile than the conventional technique. The intention is to treat fine lines and wrinkles without imparting an undesired “frozen face like” appearance. Besides facial rejuvenation, it has found its way into the management of other indications such as rosacea, hyperhidrosis, keloid, and seborrhea. Being a relatively newer method, knowledge about the various dilution methods, desired volume, and correct depth of injection involved in this technique remain scarce. In this article, the authors have highlighted various indications, procedures, adverse effects, and contraindications of microbotox.
