How Much BOTOX®​ Do I Need?

The amount of Botox® needed varies with each patient, depending on factors like age, gender, muscle size and strength, treatment goals and more. That being said, there are some established estimates that serve as a good starting point when determining how much Botox® to use in a certain area, but your exact treatment plan will be tailored to your unique needs.

During your complimentary consultation, our Botox® experts will suggest an ideal number of units for you depending on your particular needs and areas you want to improve. This allows us to offer you the most effective concentration of Botox®.

Botox® is a proven treatment that has been safely used for medical and cosmetic purposes for more than 20 years. Although Botox® contains botulinum toxin, a neurotoxic compound, it is purified in a laboratory under strict conditions to ensure a safe product, and only a small amount is used at a time. Once injected beneath the skin, Botox® doesn’t travel systematically throughout the body.

Botox® is an injectable product that contains the active ingredient botulinum toxin, a compound that works on the muscles of the face to eliminate the signs of aging. Botox® is often used on the upper face, particularly around the eyes and forehead, but can treat wrinkles around the mouth, nose, brows and chin. When injected beneath the skin, Botox® blocks the nerve signals that trigger muscle contractions, temporarily relaxing them so the wrinkles soften.

Botox® works by limiting muscle movement to soften the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial expressions. When injected beneath the skin, the active ingredient in Botox® interrupts nerve signals so the affected muscle can no longer contract, restoring a more youthful appearance after just one treatment. Botox® injections are localized and won’t spread to the rest of the face, allowing untreated muscles to contract normally.

Botox® is a proven treatment for eliminating the signs of aging. It can reduce the appearance of expression lines or wrinkles while preventing new ones from forming, making it a popular choice among both men and women who want smoother, younger-looking skin. As a non-surgical approach to anti-aging, Botox® is appropriate for most patients and provides a number of advantages over similar treatments, including:

  • Non-surgical with no downtime
  • Does not produce scars
  • Addresses early signs of aging around the eyes, brows and forehead
  • Effects develop within five to seven days
  • Natural-looking results 
  • Can help delay the aging process

Botox® is not an anesthetic and will not numb your face. Botox® works by reducing muscle activity, but you’ll retain full sensation in treated areas. Your face might feel fuller or heavier right after your treatment, but this effect is temporary and will subside on its own.
