Your botox questions, answered.
How does 20 units of Botox actually work on my anatomy?
20 units of Botox is known as the standard dosage for one “area” of Botox. The 3 areas for upper face Botox are — the forehead/frontalis, the 11s/glabella and the crow’s feet/orbicularis oculi which are all targeted by our Hello, Bright Eyes microtreatment.
The forehead is an “elevator muscle” which works to pull up your brows when expressions are made whereas the 11s are a “depressor muscle” that pulls inwards and downwards. The 11s are a lot stronger and compact in comparison to the forehead muscles.
Because of how our upper face anatomy works, you are not able to treat the forehead without also treating the 11s as this could result in a heavy appearance in the forehead as the muscles are relaxed and drop slightly. In order to provide the most natural, successful results we will craft a custom dosage plan based on your individual muscular anatomy which, if includes both the forehead and the 11s, usually results in a dosage higher than 20 units.
Does Botox hurt?
Since the injection points are almost microscopic, most clients find Botox to be extremely tolerable! We also have an array of distraction tools to help keep your mind off the process.
Will I look frozen?
We believe the best work goes unnoticed. With the appropriate dosage and placement by our expert practitioners, we deliver refreshed and rested results
that keep you looking like you!
When will I see results, and how long will they last?
On average, Botox takes 4-7 days to start kicking in, with full results achieved 2 weeks post-treatment. While it varies from person to person, we recommend refreshing your Botox every 3-4 months.
