Have you thought about getting botox previously, but changed your mind because you thought it may be too expensive? Botox is actually more affordable than it once was, and that’s why it remains such a popular anti-wrinkle treatment. But how much does botox cost.
What is botox?
Botox is a medical treatment derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It is used cosmetically to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that appear when the muscles form facial expressions such as squinting, smiling, and frowning. Botox therefore reduces the appearance of horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines at the corner of the eyes) and frown lines.
How much does botox cost
The average cost of botox ranges from $500 to $800 per session. However, the exact cost of botox varies depending on the number of units used, and the areas being treated. The geographic region can also impact the cost of botox.
One unit of botox costs about $20. However, the number of units required for each area won’t be the same for every patient. If you are contemplating getting botox, its best to schedule a consultation with a qualified, experienced injector for a personalized cost breakdown.
Although botox is often available at discounted prices, patients are advised to avoid providers that offer extremely low prices. If botox is being offered at prices far below the average it could indicate that the product is diluted, or the injector is not suitably qualified. It’s therefore advisable to make an informed decision when getting botox, and not consider price alone.
