A common question many people ask Rupesh who are having Botox is how many units they will need during this cosmetic treatment?

The truth is, each patient is very different and the answer to this varies greatly on how large your muscle is, how strong it is, the position of your muscle, and other factors. The strength of the muscles in your face, particularly the forehead muscles, plays a large part in how many units you will need.

If you have stronger facial muscles, you will need more units, whereas weaker facial muscles require less. Also, this is one area where gender makes a significant difference. Men generally will have much stronger facial muscles than women, and as a result require more Botox units to get desired results.

While the right amount of Botox injections can only be determined in a professional consultation with Rupesh, here is a basic number of units of Botox that is FDA approved.

Here are what the average units of Botox for the different areas of the face are, so you have a baseline of what to expect when doing your first treatment.

Chin: 2-6 units
Corners of the mouth: 3-6 units
Crow’s feet: 5-15 units
Eyebrow lift: 2-5 units
Forehead lines / horizontal lines: 10-30 units
Frown lines / Glabellar lines (between the eyes): 10-25 units
Laugh lines (nasolabial folds) / Jaw area: 15-50 units per side
Lines around the nose: 5-10 units
Neck bands: 25-50 units
