As we age, wrinkles begin to appear on our faces, which makes us look younger. In order to reduce the production of wrinkles, we will carry out various skin care procedures, and some people may choose to inject botulinum toxin to slow down aging. So you know that under normal circumstances, different parts of the body need to be injected with different amounts of Botox. Let's take a look at it together.
Botulinum Toxin Type A can reduce the appearance of frown lines and other wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead. Most people use 10-25 units of Botox to treat horizontal forehead lines and up to 16-30 units for lines between the eyes.
Botulinum Toxin Type A can treat fine lines in the crow’s feet area, relax the muscles between the brows to help the brows lift, and treat other wrinkles in the eye area. To treat around the eyes typically use 12-24 units Botox.
Botulinum Toxin Type A is sometimes used to treat bunny lines on either side of the nose. This treatment tends to be less expensive than others, usually, 8-14 total units of Botox can be used.
The platysmal bands in the neck are a relatively large treatment area, so it can take quite a lot of Botox to see results here. It may take 50-100 total units to lift and relax the platysmal bands.
5. Gummy smile
Botulinum Toxin Type A can help you keep your gums from showing when you smile. Depending on the degree of gum showing, units typically range between 4-20 units.
6. Upper lip
Better known as the lip flip, treatment in this area helps those who feel like their upper lip disappears when smiling. It also provides a beautiful perk to the cupid’s bow area. It usually only takes 4 units for treatment!
7. Masseter muscles
Many people who wish to slim their jawline or treat bruxism get a substantial amount of Botox injected into their muscles. It usually takes 30-80 units to get effective results, depending on the muscle thickness and strength.
You can reduce the appearance of chin dimpling and also prolong the duration of your chin filler with just 4-6 units of Botox in most cases.
In general, the largest factors affecting the amount of Botox you will use is the size of your muscles. Usually, men tend to need more units than women to achieve their desired results because they have larger facial muscles on average.
