Fairfax, Virginia (webnewswire) May 15, 2019 – Elume MedSpa, a Fairfax botox clinic, released a blog helping readers answer the question, “how many units of botox do I need”. The amount varies between each person and procedure, though these guidelines can help readers plan ahead.

Botox is an injected dermal filler that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines on the face. Target areas can include frown lines on the forehead and between the eyes, crows feet around the eyes, and other areas that show signs of age. Botox is a noninvasive and long lasting treatment. Appointments typically take well under an hour to complete, and recipients can continue going about their day as normal after taking some time to rest immediately following their appointment. The results typically last between three and six months before recipients need to touch up their botox fillers.

The number of units of botox needed varies depending on the procedure chosen and the person receiving it. Differing aesthetic goals, muscle strengths, level of wrinkling, face shapes, face sizes, and metabolism can all affect the amount of botox needed. For example, those with several areas to address, a fast metabolism, and strong face muscles may require more units than those with fewer areas to address and weaker muscles. Generally speaking, though, most processes require anywhere from two units to 50. Small areas, such as the eyebrows, crows feet, nasal lines, and the corners of the mouth, typically need no more than 15 units of botox, while larger ones, such as the forehead, neck, and cheeks may need 25 to 50 units. Your consultant will work with you to determine the amount of botox needed to meet your needs.
