I’d like to get Botox for the fine lines around my mouth and nose. How many cc’s of this injectable do you normally use?
Botox injection is usually measured by the number of units injected and not by volume. You can inject 5, 10 or 15cc and still get the same result depending on how the provider diluted Botox. Around the mouth (for vertical upper lip lines), I use 10-12 units and for nose about 10 units. You need to be careful not to over inject around the mouth or you run the risk of looking like a stroke victim.
