How much Botox do I need?

February 5, 2018

 

 

I would say this is one of the most common questions I get from people interested in Botox or Dysport injections so I thought I would jump on here a post a little information that can hopefully educate everyone a little more!

 

1. What is a unit?

- We measure Botox and Dysport by the unit. What is a unit? a teaspoon? a mL? NOPE! A unit is not a measurement of size necessarily. It is a measurement given to us by the companies themselves to dose the medication for you. Just like insulin. So it is not an amount of liquid we inject. And a Botox Unit DOES NOT EQUAL a Dysport Unit. 

 

2. Well how much do I need?

- Each area we treat on the face requires a different amount of units. Here is a list of the typical areas I treat and about how many units it requires to reach optimal correction. Meaning you can do a little less and you can always do a little more. Also, everyones faces are SO DIFFERENT. You may need more or less than the next person so I highly recommend you do not compare how many units you get to your friend or come to your appointment with a number in mind, that way you can work out with your injector the best treatment for YOU!!!
