Are you ready to finally banish those pesky wrinkles but unsure how many units of Botox in forehead wrinkles are really necessary to give you the results you desire?

First, let’s get a better understanding of what exactly happens during a Botox treatment session.

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable wrinkle reducer that is applied directly into the muscles on your face that cause wrinkles to form.

Once Botox has been applied to the muscle it relaxes it to diminish the appearance of a wrinkle on your face.

Is Botox Permanent?

Unfortunately, Botox is not a permanent solution for unwanted wrinkles.

However, you can expect your treatment results to last anywhere from 3 to 4 months.

Why Does My Forehead Have So Many Lines?

The forehead is actually the first place that you will begin to notice the signs of aging as you get older. This area shows a lot of emotion whether we are happy, sad, angry or surprised it always shows on our forehead.

Over the years the muscles that show these lines that form due to those facial expressions begin to weaken and the lines begin to stay in that area even when our faces are at rest.

How Many Units of Botox in Forehead Lines Will I Need?

Most females require around 10-30 units of Botox in the forehead for an effective treatment. However, every patient is different and men often require many more units.

The best way to know how many units you may require is to first schedule a consultation with your trusted injector.
