When it comes to Botox treatments, we are often asked how many units of Botox does someone need per treatment. Well, here’s the thing: it all depends on the person.

What Does Botox Treat?

When it comes to reducing the signs of aging, Botox can help eliminate the “11’ lines on your forehead, crow’s feet, and furrow lines on your forehead (as approved by the FDA).*

What Affects How Much Botox I Need?

  • The Muscle
    • Since Botox treatments are injected straight into your facial muscles to “freeze” them and prevent the appearance of aging*, the size of the muscle affects how much is needed for effective treatment. The larger the muscle is, the more units of Botox you will need. The strength of the muscle will also play a role in how many units you’ll need.
  • Your Desired Results
    • If you’re looking for a more drastic change in your facial appearance, you may need more units to achieve that look. You and your Botox specialist will discuss the best number of units that will best work to give you a natural, youthful appearance.
