Neuromodulators like BOTOX® Cosmetic are a go-to for men and women who want to look younger and more alert. But it takes a skilled injector to help you appear naturally refreshed rather than “frozen” after BOTOX treatment.

Our experienced injectors know the precise dosage necessary for each area of the face. If you’re wondering, “How many units of BOTOX do I need?” keep reading and check out our handy infographic below.

Understanding Why BOTOX Varies for Each Patient

At Freeman Plastic Surgery, your treatment is never one-size-fits-all. We customize your injections to address your individual needs and aesthetic goals safely. How much BOTOX we administer also depends on which area of the face we’re treating. Different facial muscles require varying amounts of BOTOX to relax and reduce wrinkles properly.

Other factors that impact the amount of BOTOX we inject include:

  • The severity of your aging symptoms
  • Your unique facial anatomy
  • Your gender
  • The size and strength of the target facial muscles
  • Your metabolism

How Long Does BOTOX Last?

After your initial BOTOX treatment, you can expect to enjoy your wrinkle-free look for 3 to 4 months before rescheduling. However, with continued maintenance, your facial muscles can become “trained” to relax over time, and you may be able to retain your look for longer. Our related blog post provides a more detailed overview of how BOTOX potentially weakens the facial muscles over time.
