Here's How Many Units of Botox You Need for Forehead Wrinkles

Erase Forehead Wrinkles with Botox®

At Touch of Glamour, Botox to treat stubborn forehead wrinkles is a popular procedure we do for our clients. Giving them smooth, youthful skin that they all love. Our injectors elevate forehead Botox injections from a mere cosmetic procedure to an art form. In this quick guide, we unravel the benefits and intricacies of Botox for forehead wrinkles.

What Causes Forehead Wrinkles

Before discussing the advantages of forehead Botox injections, we will educate you on the anatomy of your forehead muscles and how they may significantly contribute to forehead lines and wrinkles.

Frontalis Muscle

CONTRACTING YOUR FRONTALIS CAN CAUSE FOREHEAD LINES

Horizontal Forehead Wrinkles and Lines: Frontalis Muscle​

When we raise our eyebrows, the frontalis muscle in our forehead tightens, causing forehead wrinkles. When the frontalis muscle contracts, it forces the skin on the forehead upward and produces distinct forehead lines. Without preventative treatment, these forehead lines might develop into wrinkles as we age.

Glabella Muscles

CONTRACTING YOUR GLABELLA CAN CAUSE 11 LINES

11s Forhead Wrinkles and Lines: Glabellar Muscles

The glabella lines, often known as the 11s, are the parallel vertical lines that run between the eyebrows and up the middle of the forehead. 11 lines develop by pulling the eyebrows’ core regions lower and inward. There is a group of facial muscles that work together dynamically to form these vertical lines between your eyes. There is the muscle above the eyebrow, the corrugator supercilii. A triangular muscle between your eyes is the procerus and a muscle close to your inner eyebrow located near the eye, the depressor supercilii

How Forehead Botox Wrinkle Treatments Work

Botox Cosmetics is an FDA-approved neuromodulator that is safe to treat areas with facial wrinkles and lines.1 This can include treating under-eye wrinkles, lip wrinkles, and crowsfeet. These injections smooth out the skin and lessen the visibility of existing lines by momentarily relaxing the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles.

Instead, experienced medical professionals will give each area the appropriate amount of units needed to ensure that you receive the results you’ve been looking for.

Professional injectors will set up follow-up appointments to view your results and add additional units to areas that need them

Potential Risks to Forehead Botox Injections

Learn about the rare risks that can happen with forehead injections below:

Ptosis After Forehead Botox Injections

Drooping Eyelids (Ptosis)

Ptosis Can Be a Risk From Forehead Botox Injections

Forehead Botox can temporarily droop the eyelid if it spreads to the adjacent eyelid muscles.2 On the very unlikely occasion that a patient develops ptosis after receiving Botox, our medical spa is equipped with a corrective treatment in place

In the event that this uncommon consequence materializes, we arrange a second consultation for more focused injections to strengthen the muscles that control the eyelids. They are injected at particular locations along the lash line and on the eyelid. α-adrenergic eye drops like Upneeq can help elevate the eyelid even further.3

Depending on how much Botox has penetrated the muscle, this condition might last anywhere from four to eight weeks before clearing up.

Our Approach to Forehead Botox Injections

Learn how our trained providers avoid injecting Botox in the wrong areas of the forehead below:

Our Approach to Forehead Botox Injections

Successful Forehead Wrinkle Treatments Start With Professionally Trained Injectors ​

How Our Injectors Avoid Areas That Can Cause Ptosis

Our skilled team of injectors treats forehead Botox procedures with accuracy and consideration. We follow strict safety protocols, making sure we never inject more than a finger’s width above the eyebrow, creating a safe zone to avoid side effects. 

Our injectors use a method that mimics the directional flow of the muscles, particularly around the glabella. Where the muscles naturally diverge from sensitive regions. This allows for more superficial injections as we travel outward and deeper injections where it’s safest. 

This meticulous procedure reduces the possibility of damaging the levator muscle, which raises the eyelid and may cause ptosis. Our injectors are experienced and trained on the proper injection points for ptosis not to occur in our patients.

Our Forehead Botox FAQs

Forehead Botox is one of the most widely used procedures. Your facial expressions have the power to gradually produce both dynamic and static wrinkles that deepen with time. In order to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and creases, Botox is injected into the desired muscles. Botox is quick, non-invasive, and safe. Injections of Botox smooth and relax muscles to make your skin seem tighter and more youthful.

For patients experiencing facial volume loss, Botox injections are believed to be safe over the long run. Experts in medicine could suggest that receiving injections on a regular basis for several years might cause muscular weakening. Years of having injections for both dynamic and static wrinkles can train the muscles of the face to weaken, contract, and atrophy.

Your Botox injector can help you get long-term benefits with injections while minimizing adverse effects if you follow their instructions.

The cost of a forehead botox treatment can range from $250 to $1500, depending on how many places need to be treated. Injections may be required in some places of the forehead. The cost of your procedure will vary based on the number of places that require treatment and the number of units required.

To prevent forehead wrinkles, it’s essential to protect the skin from the sun using UV-protective hats and broad-spectrum sunscreen from UVA & UVB radiation. Skin health is further ensured by regular moisturizing, quitting smoking, and eating a diet high in antioxidants. Wrinkle production may be prevented by drinking plenty of water, paying attention to your recurrent facial expressions, and utilizing anti-aging treatments that contain retinoids and peptides. Choosing to sleep on your back, getting professional facial treatments, and thinking about getting Botox injections as a prophylactic measure will all help avoid forehead wrinkles.

The quantity of Botox used to treat your unsightly forehead wrinkles differs from person to person and is determined by their severity, as your professional botox injector will explain.

For your forehead, 10 to 30 units of Botox is a typical starting dosage.

The number of units your skin truly needs depends on how severe your wrinkles and fine lines are.

To provide you with smooth and wrinkle-free skin, your qualified Botox injector will advise which regions and how many units of Botox will be required.

A thorough correction of your skin by your glabellar lines can be achieved with an average of 25 Botox units. The glabellar lines that run between your eyebrows and eyes are known as the “11 lines.”

Depending on how bad your 11 lines are, you may need to get more botox between your eyes and eyebrows.

Around each eye, 10 to 15 units of Botox will typically be injected. twenty to thirty units in total. The lines that surround your eye corners are called “Crowsfeet,” or outer lateral canthal lines.

The severity of your lines will determine how many units you need for your eleven lines.

Depending on how severe your wrinkles are, you may need between 10 and 50 units for a forehead botox injection. Each patient has a different number of units required for a forehead botox injection. Every patient has distinct regions on their foreheads of varying sizes. If more area needs to be injected into the forehead, this might result in the requirement for additional units.

Forehead Botox results last about 3 to 4 months, at which point touch-ups are recommended. There is no right or wrong time to start Botox injections, and we custom-tailor our approach for every new client.
