How many units are in a botox syringe?
It depends on what size syringe is being used. They can be anywhere from 1ml to 100ml. 1cc of botox (or botox/saline solution) equals 1ml. If you are trying to compare prices between per cc and per syringe find out: 1. Dilution ratios for each doctor. The more parts saline to botox, the weaker the botox injection. 2. What size syringe the doctor at the price/per syringe place uses. Then do your math. For example: Doctor 1 has a dilution ratio of 1:1 ( 1 part botox to 1 part saline). He charges $220 per syringe, and the syringe size is 10ml. Doctor 2 (by the cc) has a dilution ratio of 1:2 (1 part botox to 2 parts saline). He charges $10 per unit (cc). For doctor 1: A) Take the cost of the syringe ($220) and divide by the number of ml (10). The result is 220. B) Take the dilution ratio and divide the parts of botox by the parts of saline. The result is 1. C) Divide the result of A by the result of B to find out what your ACTUALLY paying for botox: $220/10=22; 22/1=22. $22 per ml (cc) of STRAIGHT, UNDILUTED BOTOX. For doctor 2: A) Take the dilution ratio and divide the parts of botox by the parts of saline. The result is 1/2 (one half, or .5). B) Take the cost per cc and divide by the results of A to find out what you are ACTUALLY paying for botox: 1/2=.5; 10/.5=20. $20 per ml (cc) of STRAIGHT, UNDILUTED BOTOX. Therefore, doctor B at $10 per unit has the best pricing. T his might seem complicated, but if you do each step on paper it is really quite easy.
Is cc and mcg the same thing?
