Botox for glabellar lines
I’m considering getting Botox for the first time for a crease that has developed between my brows.
In general I’m very sensitive to drugs, and can get away with taking half the recommended dose of most OTC drugs. I’m a 30 y/o female if that makes a difference.
I’ve seen 20 units listed as typical for glabellar lines, but would it be possible to start with 10 and have more added if necessary?
(I understand that Botox is not metabolized hepatically, but I would like to start low and work up to a higher dose if possible.)
Absolutely. There is no harm in starting with less – my most common dosage is either 12 or 16 for the glabellar area. The patient can always come back for more and they can still make facial expressions. The effect may not last as long (maybe 2 months instead of 3), but you look natural.
