Dr. Tammy Wu and I participated in a small way in marathon expos throughout California to spread awareness of the Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon. I was looking to find pictures of the race directors: Heidi, Karen, and Vickie. And I found some of these gems which I just stuck together here. Pictures below range from years 2010 to 2014. And are taken in cities of Santa Barbara, Fresno, Monterey, Sacramento, and Santa Rosa – oh and of course, Modesto.
I’m writing this on 12/18/15. These are basically notes to myself and eventually may be used as a guide in 2016 to help the Botox representatives in their national Botox database. Allergan/Botox likes to do studies like that. Data below from Brilliant Distinctions. However, Brilliant distinctions isn’t used by all of our patients, and thus the data may be somewhat short; meaning that the actual numbers are probably higher than the ones reported below. I have also found that many of my patients are from Doctors Medical Center in Modesto, CA. And in general the majority of my patients are nurses. I think this stems from my history of working at DMC much more than Memorial Hospital in Modesto, CA.
First 14 work days of December 2015 Botox statistics reveal:
3774 units of Botox used.
98 Botox patients seen (this would include Juvederm/dermal filler patients who received Botox. But this would not include Juvederm/dermal filler patients who did not receive Botox).
65 Syringes of dermal filler used.
How much Botox do I use per day? 269 units.
Using the data above from 14 days of work in December 2015, I come up with the following info:
269.5 units of Botox used per day (per work day)
7 Botox patients per day
4.6 syringes of filler used per day.
What’s our average units of Botox used per patient? 38.5 Units.
38.51 U of Botox is the average number of units used per patient over the 14 days of data collection.
38.27 U of Botox is the average number of units used throughout my entire year of 2015 up to 12/18/15 – calculated from 1340 Botox visits and 51,283 U of Botox used for those 1340 Botox visits.
How much Botox is used per month? 42 Bottles.
As a rough estimate, if I take 51,283U of botox used and divide that by 12 months. I would get 4,273 U of Botox used per month on average which would be 42 bottles of Botox a month on average.
How much filler do I use per month? 54 syringes per month.
As a rough estimate, taking 659 syringes of fillers used this year up to 12/18/15 and divide by 12 months, I would get 54.92 syringes per month.

“Approximately how long does Botox last and does it depend on the area’s that are injected??”
I got this question regarding the duration of action of Botox today on my FaceBook page. I tried to answer it very simply:
My Botox Duration Answer:
So many factors. But I need to boil that question down to an answer. I would say that Botox lasts 3-4 months. It mainly depends on the dosage used vs. the strength of the muscle. So I will aim to try to get the Botox to wear off at the same time. But I am usually very light on the forehead – so that area might lose it’s effect first, followed by crows feet, then lastly the Glabellar complex (11’s between the eyes). Hope the info helps!
With really high injections of Botox, I think it could last 5 months. Many factors to consider: Botox factors, Injector factors, environment factors, and patient factors!
I don’t have December yet, but comparing Jan-November, I am lucky to be able to present a 149% change from last year in our Modesto BOTOX usage. I like to make reports for the Botox company, so they can see how the team is doing. I welcome the representatives and Allergan managers as part of my Surgical Artistry team and I want them to feel good about their efforts. I appreciate them very much for all the help they have given me and my patients. Just having fun with an old spreadsheet (2003 Excel – and I use a flip phone with no text messaging).
Above graph shows the cumulative monthly Botox usage and compares 2015 to 2014. I am missing the month of December because it isn’t over yet. But I think it shows a nice trend – and it shows a 149% change (or a 49% growth in the usage of Botox). I have other Botox statistics from previous posts – be sure to check those if there is any interest under the “Botox Statistics” category section. And there is also another Botox blog besides this one which I sort-of stopped updating recently. In that blog I have this valuable Botox statistics report for 2014.
And the hard Botox data:
I think sometimes this is called running totals. So if I look at March’s Botox data – that means the total amount of Botox I used from the beginning of the year to March.
About My Botox use in 2014
I felt very proud of 2014’s usage of Botox and at times felt that it couldn’t be any better. But 2015 proved that we can continue to improve!
