How is Botox® Priced?
Botox® pricing can vary between locations. Each provider will have its pricing system. In general, providers can charge for Botox® in two different ways. Some may charge a basic rate for an area of the face, such as the forehead. Others charge per unit of Botox®, with the forehead usually requiring between 20 and 30 units.
According to Cosmopolitan, prices per unit of Botox® vary between $10 and $25. Average pricing for the forehead area can go from $250 to $600 or more. When looking for a Botox® provider, look for experience and certifications instead of bargains. Your provider may offer specials to make Botox® more affordable, especially if you plan to have multiple treatments.
You may have heard of Dysport®, a product that works in the same way as Botox®. Either one may work better for you, but they achieve similar results. The pricing works the same way as for Botox®, but their cost might differ.
Where Can I Have Botox®?
The most popular locations for Botox® are the horizontal lines across the forehead, vertical lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines or the “11’s”), and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. It also works for lines around the mouth and on the neck.
Is There Any Downtime with Botox®?
You will not have any downtime and can go back to your usual activities. Slight bruising or soreness around the injection sites may occur but fade within a day or two. Botox® makes a good “lunchtime” treatment because you can have your injections and go back to work immediately afterward.
