Botox dosage - you'll never believe this !

Hi everybody

Went to my Botox doctor for a General Eye Examination this morning. Some of you may remember that my old doctor used to give me 75 units in 10 sites: 2 each upper and lower lids and 2 in forehead. This used to last about 6 weeks then started wearing off over 2-3 weeks.

My new doctor's last injectins have lasted 9 weeks and are only just starting to wear off. I feel I could go another 2 weeks but am going to have the Botox next week.

I asked him how many units he gave me last time and he said: 40 !!!!

Can you believe it? He also injects more sites including the crows feet area.

My old doctor has been using Botox for years, must be 15 that I know of and is obviously still following the same practice he used when he started. He made no effort to tailor the dose or sites to my requirements. When it didn't last long, he just kept upping the dose ! I wonder how many other doctors are doing the same thing !

I am so thankful that my new doctor is very interested in BEB and is trying to do the best he can for my particular set of circumstances - with great results so far. Also,he had read the Times article which shows he is keeping on top of things!

Lyn

So glad, Lyn, you are getting better results with this doctor - amazing what a difference it makes when they actually work with you isn't it? Do hope it continues to be a positive experience for you. Best wishes
