How much Botox do I need?

How much Botox do I need?  This is a very common question when it come to any neuromodulators.  The most common of these is Botox.  Botox is a small injection into movement muscles that stop the movement from happening, and in turn stops movement wrinkles from developing and, over time, staying.

Botox Cosmetic is used by men and women to treat stubborn frown lines—between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and other fine lines on the forehead and the lips –that tend to accumulate over time as a result of years of smiling and squinting.

While now, Botox is somewhat commonly known and talked about, a big question that comes in to play is how much Botox do I need to see results.  While there are a recommended number of units of Botox used in particular areas, this portion is somewhat customizable to what results you are looking for.  At WDC we are all about great results with a natural effect.  Our goal is not for you to be “frozen” and unable to move treated areas at all, but to simply use enough product to stop the wrinkle from forming.  Our providers can give you a quote based on a free consultation. Some practices quote based on an overall area, but Wilmington Dermatology Center bases cost on what is actually used. There is no question you are getting the best value. WDC is also the top Botox injector in all of southeastern NC, so you know you’re in good hands.

All in all, the cost varies on the severity of the wrinkling and the desired areas to be treated, hence the recommendation of coming in for a consultation.  We allow enough time to have the procedure done on the same day if desired, as we know your time is valuable.  Contact us today to schedule your consult!
