How many units of Botox do I need per area?

Let’s take a deep dive into where you can receive Botox injections, how many units it takes for each area, and the benefits of using Botox. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a unit of Botox costs from $10 to $15. Therefore, it’s crucial to understand the relationship between how much Botox you need and what your final bill will be, as follows:

  • What are the most common areas for Botox treatment? The most common areas for Botox injections include crow’s feet, forehead, and frown lines. When planning your treatment, our professionals determine the amount of Botox needed to achieve the desired effect. Here is the average number of units used in each of these critical areas:

    • Crow’s Feet – 6 to 12 units per eye

    • Frown Lines – 10-30 units

    • Forehead lines – 10-12 units

    • Remember that you can combine treatment areas in a single visit. For the above example, you would need 47 units to treat both eyes, frown lines, and forehead lines.

  • Masseter Muscle. You use your masseter muscle to grind or clench your teeth. It takes approximately 25 to 30 units on each side of your jaw to improve teeth grinding and clenching. In addition to relieving tension and pain, Botox treatment along the temporomandibular joint can also produce a slimming effect.

  • Migraines. Speak to your Botox administrator at Reflections Med Spa in Chicago regarding how much Botox you will need to treat your migraine symptoms, as it is dependent on numerous factors.

  • Between Eyebrows. Frown lines between the eyebrows can give away your age even if you don't want to reveal it. It takes about 10 to 30 units of Botox to treat most patients for lines between the eyebrows.

  • Brow Furrows. Many people furrow their brows when they concentrate or feel frustrated. To erase the effects of brow furrows, it may take between 15 and 20 units of Botox. Relaxing these lines can melt away the years and give you a younger appearance.

  • Eyebrows. It takes about 6 to 12 units to relax the crow’s feet on the side of your eyes.

  • Forehead. If you have lines on your forehead, you might need between 10 to 12 units of Botox to relax them. After the treatment, you may notice an immediate difference.
