Botox is popular for those who want to erase years from their faces. It successfully removes fine lines and wrinkles while restoring your youthful appearance with little downtime.
A unit of Botox (or botulinum toxin type A) is what plastic surgeons and experts use in measuring the amount, much like how we use milligrams or milliliters for medicine. It’s a fixed number that will have biological activity on your body- each vial containing 100 units/vials.
Botox comes in different sizes, with the 50-unit vial being more common than 100 single-use units. The product appears as solid crystals when it is pure but may change form depending on what type of container.
The number of units you need to achieve your aesthetic goals will determine the price for Botox treatment sessions. For example, if all I wanted were a little bit more forehead smoothness, it would only take one or two shots, but other people might require multiple visits, so my prices vary.
