How are the Units of Botox calculated in a 2.5cc dilution ratio solution with normal saline water? Skin Care expert, Feibi Liu explains in today’s video.
When you purchase 20 units of Botox to help you reduce your wrinkles, how much Botox are you actually receiving?
In order to answer this question, you must ask another question first and that is “What is the Constitution or Dilution Ratio for the Botox Solution?”
Normally the answer to that question is 2.5 cc per 100 unit bottle of Botox. This means that for every 100 units of Botox, 2.5 cc’s of Normal Saline Water was distributed into the vile. If that’s the case then you just simply do the math to determine the units in each cc that the syringe must contain before getting the Botox injection.
2.5 cc Botox Solution breaks down like this:
1 cc @ 40 Units +
1cc @ 40 Units +
0.5cc @ 20 units
If you know that the dilution ratio is 2.5 cc and you purchased 40 units of Botox, but the skin care practitioner is only filling up the syringe up to 3/4 of the capacity, you know that you’re not getting the full amount of what you paid for. The skin care expert should be filling up the 1cc syringe all the way to its full capacity in order for you to receive the full 40 units that you purchased.
20 Units of Botox will be 0.5 cc or half of a 1cc syringe at a 2.5 dilution ratio mix.
Remember to always ask the skin care expert for the Dilution Ratio so that you can do the math in your head as to how much Botox you are actually supposed to receive!
