How many units of Botox are used to treat the forehead, crow’s feet and between the brows?
Treatment areas for Botox typically include the forehead, frown lines between your eyebrows (also called the glabella), and crow’s feet.
These are all considered separate treatment areas, and your treatment plan for each should be customized to address your specific needs based on muscle strength and severity of wrinkles/expression lines.
The FDA recommendation for treatment of the crow’s feet is 12 units per side, but this can vary from patient to patient.
Frown lines usually respond well to treatment of 15-25 units, and for forehead lines, 10-15 units.
Ultimately a treatment plan should be based on your individual needs, and I recommend a personalized consultation with an experienced and qualified injector to review your options in person.
