Botox didn't work second time around

I would agree with Dr. Shelton's response. In 1 cc you can have 100 units or 10 units depending on how it is prepared.

Botox repeat

There is not enough information to answer. How may units are in the 1 cc? In which areas did you have the 50 units? If there is no effect after a two weeks either you just need more units or the same needs to be repeated.
