QUESTION

Do Botox Concentrations change from Doctor to Doctor?

I read that Botox is purchased by doctors as a powder and is diluted such that one doctor may give lower concentration of Botox . If this is true, how can i be sure that the doctor doesnt dilute my treatment more than it should be?

ANSWER

It can vary

A doctor can vary the concentration, the amount and the location that Botox can be injected. All of these factors should be something that an experienced Botox administrator should be able to explain. In addition they should have rationale behind why they have injected in a particular location, with a particular concentration and in a particular amount. It can be helpful to ask how many total units of Botox you've gotten. Keep track of it yourself between treatments and especially if you transfer providers. I hope this helps. Steven Williams, MD
