How Much Does Botox Cost?

Are you interested in botox anti-aging treatment?  Although botox is a great fix for forehead lines and crow’s feet, it’s important to find out how it works, and how much you can expect to pay for treatment.  So how much does botox cost? 

How Botox Reduces Wrinkles

Botox is a neuromodulator, which softens the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that form due to the contraction of muscles related to facial expressions such as squinting, smiling, or laughing.  

Botox works by blocking nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract.  When the muscles are unable to contract the overlying skin becomes smoother, and wrinkles soften.  

The results of botox typically last 3-4 months.

How Much Does Botox Cost?

Botox is available in units so some botox providers bill per unit, while others bill per treatment area.  The average cost of botox is around $10-15 per unit or $475 per area.   

There are also two key factors that can affect the price of botox – the training and expertise of the injector, and the geographic location of the practice.

Training And Experience Of The Injector

A highly experienced physician is likely to charge more for botox treatment than a nurse or aesthetician.   

Geographic Location

Botox treatment is generally more expensive at practices operating in major urban centers with higher overhead costs.

Although cost is an important consideration when getting botox injections, safety is a top priority.   It’s always best to choose a reputable physician to ensure the best results and avoid serious complications.  However, it is possible to save on botox because some physicians offer discounted rates to patients purchasing multiple treatments.
