The amount of Botox required for desirable results varies per patient. During your initial consultation, your injector will have you make certain facial expressions to estimate the amount of Botox you will need. Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides Botox to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
What is Botox?
Botox an FDA-approved injectable treatment used to temporarily block muscle movement, therefore reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles when making facial expressions.
What Areas Can I Treat with Botox?
Botox can be used to treat a number of areas, the most common including:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines (area between the eyebrows)
- Crows feet (lines at the corners of eyes when smiling)
- Gummy smile (reduces the amount of gums showing when smiling)
- Masseter (muscle in jaw that enlarges from clenching or grinding teeth)
How Much Botox Will I Need?
The amount of Botox you will need to benefit from treatment will depend on the strength of your muscle and the number of areas being treated. Multiple areas may be treated in one session. The typical range for units required are:
Forehead Lines: 20 units
Frown Lines: 20 units
Crow’s Feet: 20-24 units (10 to 12 per eye)
Gummy Smile: 5 units (2.5 per side of mouth)
