How Much Does Botox Cost?

Are you interested in getting botox to reduce your forehead wrinkles and frown lines?   If you are new to botox, one of the first questions you’re likely to ask about the procedure is: How much does botox cost? 

What Is Botox?

Botox is the brand name for botulinum toxin A, which is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum.  Botox softens the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles.  When this is done, the underlying facial muscles relax and this smooths the overlying skin and reduces wrinkles.   

How Much Does Botox Cost?

Botox is typically priced per unit, so the cost will depend on the number of units required for treatment.  The right number of units will vary for each individual because factors such as the areas being treated and the strength of the facial muscles, will influence the amount of botox needed (click here to learn more).

The average cost of botox is about $10 to $15 per unit. It takes around 20-35  units to treat frown lines, 6-20 units to treat forehead lines, and 12-24 units to treat crow’s feet.

The amount of botox needed to achieve optimal results can only be determined by a consultation with a medical professional who is experienced working with botox.

First-time botox users are often tempted to go with the lowest cost, but it’s not a good idea to bargain shop for botox treatment, as you could end up getting bad botox.  Patients should only consult with a skilled, experienced botox injector for treatment.
