Botox Dilution: How to Be Sure You Get the Units of Botox Paid for
How do you know if you are getting the actual number of units (Botox) that you are paying for, when should you notice results and can you tell if the Botox has been diluted? Also, recently at a local MedSpa in Fresno California, I paid $440 for Botox..the nurse left the room for more than a few minutes to get the product and then when asked about "dilution" of the product, advised that there is a "range" of the amount of saline (hopefully preservative free)she uses to dilute the dry form. Is this true, if so, what is the range. Of all the research I've done on the prescribing information, no where does is say to use "anywhere from" 1.0 mlto 2.5 ml. It says to use 1.25ml for a 50 unit vial and 2.5 for a 100 unit vial. Should this nurse be using less than either of these?
