Let’s start by explaining that part of the cost of your facial injectables in Mokena will depend on how many units of material we’ll be injecting. Botox and other neurotoxin injectables are put into the face by the “unit,” while fillers are injected by the syringe or vial.

Based on your individual goals and dreams for your skin, our experienced team will let you know exactly how much Botox or filler you’ll be purchasing.

Here are some general guidelines for how many units of injectable are in a syringe:


There are 100 units of Botox per vial and 300 units of Dysport per vial.


There is 1.0 cc of Juvederm® per syringe, and 0.8 cc of Restylane® per syringe. Sculptra®, a filler that actually stimulates natural collagen production, is administered with different guidelines (more below), but contains 367.5mg of product per vial.

Sculptra is slightly different because it is a filler that also acts as an extremely powerful collagen stimulator. As a guide for how much Sculptra you’ll need to address your concerns, it’s recommended that you need one vial per decade of your well-lived life.

So, if you’re one of our babes in her fabulous forties, you can expect to need 4 vials of Sculptra.
