How much Botox do I need?

‘How many units of Botox will I need’ is one of the most common questions injectors get asked. Recently, Botox introduced ‘The Look of 3.’ This consists of patients receiving 64 units of Botox in 3 areas of the face, at least 3 times a year. The 64 units are distributed by injecting 20 units in frown lines, 24 units in crow’s feet, and 20 units in forehead. The Look of 3 is a recommendation and dosing varies from patient to patient. Some patients require more than 64 units while others may require much less. However, 64 units of Botox is the optimal amount recommended by Botox for most patients. These 64 units last longer and give patients full-correction for their desired aesthetic outcomes.

What are the factors that determine the amount of Botox needed?

As previously stated, the number of units may need will vary from patient to patient. 64 units is the optimal amount for most, but some patients will require less while others may require more. The amount of Botox you may need can be decided during your complimentary consultation with an Aesthetica Nurse Injector. Some of the determining factors we take into consideration are:

  • Size of muscle being treated
  • Strength of muscle
  • Muscle position
  • Wrinkle and fine line depth
  • Area being treated
  • Age
  • Gender

Which areas of the face can be treated with Botox?

Like any other cosmetic treatment, a Botox injector should be experienced and have the credentials for cosmetic injections. Aesthetica Nurse Injectors have extensive knowledge on facial anatomy to decrease any chance of complications while giving the right dose and injecting the right area(s) to give patients more youthful, natural results. Many of the facial muscles can be treated depending on your cosmetic goals.

For example, if forehead lines are your concern, Botox can be used to decrease the appearance of those lines. For patients who have large parts of their gums showing when smiling, Botox can eliminate the appearance of gums by injecting the product into the sides of the nose. A lip flip is a popular treatment to enhance the appearance of the top lip and make it appear fuller. This treatment can be paired with lip fillers for the most favorable results. Other areas that can be treated are frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines on the nose, masseter (jaw area), and platysmal bands on the neck.

We have put together an infographic to give you a visual of which areas we can treat at Aesthetica and an estimated number of units. The information provided below is a guide to give you an idea of what to expect, though the number of units can vary from patient to patient.
