Seattle Botox

How many cc's of Botox is usually injected into a designated area? It is possible to inject too much Botox and risk looking puffy?

Most doctors charge patients according to the area of injection. Many times they do not let the patient know just how many units of Botox Cosmetic will be injected in each area. The patient needs to be knowledgeable about dilution and know that dilution matters. The patient is advised to ask the doctor how much saline solution is used to dilute the vial of Botox as well as how many units will be injected in each area. Each Botox vial contains 100 units and should be diluted with 4 cc's of saline and no more. If the doctor dilutes the Botox with more than 4 cc of saline, then the patient will ultimately get a smaller dose of Botox Cosmetic. This will render the Botox treatment less effective and shorter lasting.

When comparing Botox Cosmetic injection prices among different offices, the patient should question how much the surgeon dilutes the pure Botox. Botox is considered to treat horizontal lines across the forehead, lines between the eyes, or even crow's feet lines, without surgery. It is injected into the muscles responsible for causing those lines and helps smooth the lines out by relaxing the muscle. The Botox procedure, according to Seattle plastic surgery professionals can take up to 15 minutes, with effects showing up about 48 hours after the procedure.
