How much does botox cost?

If you would like to diminish the appearance of stubborn frown lines or forehead lines, botox cosmetic is the ideal treatment.  Botox is a popular anti-wrinkle treatment that temporarily reduces dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement.  But how much does botox cost.

How does botox work?

Botox is a neuromodulator so it temporarily blocks specific chemical signals from the nerves that make the muscles contract.  This causes the facial muscles beneath the wrinkles to relax, so the skin becomes smoother, and the existing wrinkles soften over time.  Botox also delays the formation of new wrinkles.  Botox starts working a few days after treatment, and the effects last 3-4 months.

Botox is FDA approved for the treatment of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet.  Treatment takes only a few minutes to complete, and there is no downtime.

How much does botox cost?

The cost of botox ranges from $10 to $20 per unit.  However, there are several factors that can affect the final price including the size of the area being treated, and the number of units required for treatment.  The number of units needed for each area won’t be the same for every patient, as it depends on the depth of the wrinkles.  Patients can expect to pay anywhere from $250 to $500 per treatment area.

If you would like a cost estimate for botox injections, it’s best to consult with a qualified injector that has substantial experience.  An expert injector can accurately estimate how much botox you will need to achieve optimal results.
