This is one of the most common questions that we receive at our clinic. The answer to this question depends on various factors. Some of these include age, sex, and strength of muscles.  

The amount of units ultimately determines what the cost to you is. That is why it is important for each patient to receive a consultation to determine how many units that individual alone will need. The last thing you want to do is over treat an area. It is always easier to schedule a follow for additional touch ups then it is to correct an over treated area. 

Founder and Nurse Practitioner, Maria Bueno, has been treating patients with Botox for the past 10 years. Her experience, expertise, and personal touch have provided patients with optimum results. 

We want to take the time to share with you the an approximation of the number of units a patient will receive.  

The Forehead

  1. 20-25 years of age: 10 - 15 units
  2. 26-35 years of age: 15 - 20
  3. 35 - 45 years of age: 22 - 26  
  4. Over 45: 24 - 30 units

The estimates shown above are for women. Since males have stronger muscles, more Botox is needed to accomplish the same results. 

Around the Eyes

  1. 20-25 years of age: 12 units
  2. 26-35 years of age: 18 units
  3. 35 - 45 years of age: 18 units  
  4. Over 45: 24 - 30 units

The estimates shown above are for women. Since males have stronger muscles, more Botox is needed to accomplish the same results.  

The Neck

When treating the neck, we need to be more careful because over treatment can cause complication in the surrounding area. Difficulty swallowing is one example.  

  1. To be safe, we recommend no more than 20 units.

The estimates shown above are for women. Since males have stronger muscles, more Botox is needed to accomplish the same results.  

The Mouth

When treating the mouth, we need to be careful, similar to treating the neck. Over treatment can results in aesthetic complications. 

  1. To be safe, we recommend no more than 4 - 6 units.

The estimates shown above are for women. Since males have stronger muscles, more Botox is needed to accomplish the same results.  

The estimates above are only approximations. Actual units may vary. To get a more accurate estimate please schedule a complimentary consultation at our clinic.
