BOTOX offers the alluring affect of youth, and although it’s widespread use is increasing year after year, there are still many out there who are curious with questions and have yet to indulge in such anti-aging treatments.
For some, it is simply a matter of not knowing the amount of “units” that will be required to achieve their desired results, and for others it’s a matter of not knowing the treatment areas and level of benefits it and benefits.
Common Parts of the Face for BOTOX Injections
BOTOX is a powerful drug that has the ability to shut down the connection between the muscles and nerves. It is injected in areas such as; between the eyebrows, above the brow line, beside the eye area where crow’s feet occur, and above the mouth, reducing wrinkles to the upper half of the face. Some might even use it to lessen neck wrinkles or “bands”, all resulting in a significant decrease in lines and wrinkles.
How Many Units of BOTOX are Needed?
Typically, the vertical lines between the brows are injected with 13-30 units of BOTOX while the horizontal forehead lines need 10-20 units, the crow’s feet need 8-20 on each side and the bunny lines need 5-10 units.
Can it Reduce Deep-Set Wrinkles?
Yes. The longer BOTOX is used, the better their wrinkle-repair results. So not only will you see immediate results, you will see increased results as you continue to receive BOTOX treatments.
How Long Does a Treatment Take?
BOTOX takes less than 15 minutes to inject and typically lasts for four months.
Who Should Administer BOTOX Injections?
We provide a trained doctor for all our BOTOX treatments, but others – such as plastic surgeons, dermatologists, ophthalmologists and otolaryngologists are also known to conduct injections, as well as dental professionals. However, it is imperative that anyone who is injecting BOTOX has received appropriate instruction during his or her residency training programs. Failing to fully understand this powerful drug can result in ill effects.
