What are Glabellar Lines and Wrinkles?
Glabellar lines and wrinkles form between and just above your eyebrows. They come with age, stress and repeated expressions like frowning or squinting. Glabellar lines are sometimes called ‘frown lines’ or the ‘angry 11's' because they can make us appear angry, tired and old.
How is Botox Used for Glabellar Lines?
Botox is a prescription drug injected into the facial muscles between your eyebrows to achieve wrinkle-free, younger-looking skin by relaxing the muscles in your face. Your provider will administer Botox, a name brand for Botulinum Toxin-A, with a needle.
How Many Units of Botox are Used for Glabellar Injections?
Though some people will require more or fewer units, an average of 15-25 units is common for Botox injections in the glabella area.
How much Botox you’ll need for your glabella will depend on:
- Depth and severity of lines
- How much muscle relaxation you want to see/how much can be safely achieved
How Much Do Botox Injections for the Glabellar Area Cost?
On average, Botox costs $10-$20/unit. Since many people receive about 15-25 units for their glabellar lines, an estimated cost for one round of treatment is about $250-$500. Some places may be more expensive than others and prices can range beyond $2,000 depending on your provider, the region you are receiving treatments in, and whether or not a consultation fee is included in your treatment.
Who are the Best Candidates for Glabella Botox Injections?
Ideal candidates for Glabella Botox injections are healthy adults over the age of 18 with realistic expectations of the treatment’s outcome.
