Botox® treatments can help reduce signs of aging, particularly deeper lines and wrinkles that appear on your face over time. However, how many units of Botox® do you need to look more youthful? Renew MD in Reno, NV, offers Botox® injections that can target those areas of the face you want to treat.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is made from botulinum toxin, an FDA-approved neurotoxin purified from bacteria for cosmetic purposes. It works by paralyzing the nerves in the facial muscles to stop them from contracting.
How Does Botox® Work?
By stopping the muscles in the face from moving, Botox® helps diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles resulting from every facial expression you make. Botox® is used in different parts of the face, including the forehead, smiles lines, and around the eyes.
How Many Units of Botox® Do I Need?
How many units of Botox® that you need for your face depends on where it is injected. Generally, the range of units is between 20 to 50, according to U.S Dermatology Partners. A private consultation at our office can provide you with more answers on precisely how many units of Botox® for the areas you want to be treated.
The results of Botox® are visible results within seven to ten days. You will see that your lines and wrinkles will start to fade after treatment. It takes a short time for Botox® to work fully, but once it does, the results last between 3 to 4 months. You may choose if you would like to have repeat injections to maintain the results.
Am I a Good Botox® Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for Botox® if you’re tired of your dynamic, moderate to severe wrinkles. You can start with Botox® at a younger age to prevent wrinkles from becoming as severe as you age, as it is an excellent anti-aging preventative.
If you are pregnant or have a neuromuscular disease, it is best to avoid Botox®.
