How Much Does Botox Cost?
One of the greatest things in life is to be able to experience a full range of emotions and to show those emotions with facial expressions. But have you looked into a mirror recently and wondered if you’ve been spending too much time laughing, scowling, raising your eyebrows, or squinting because you see the expression lines deepening on your face? Are you ready to take steps to correct those deepening lines and wrinkles?
If you are considering Botox® injections, then you are definitely on the right path. Botox® has a long history and extensive research behind it! It was the first FDA approved product for improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® is a purified protein that works by reducing muscle contractions in the face and when the proper muscles have weakened, the lines in the face are softened. You get great results with no downtime! It’s so easy!
How Much Do Botox® Injections Cost?
Botox® is priced per unit. The actual number of units needed to treat an area of the face depends on the individual needs of each patient. On average, a unit of Botox® will range in cost from $10-18. So a single treatment using 20 units is about $400. Patients treating multiple areas of the face may need as many as 60 units and the average cost would be $1200. A complimentary consultation with your medical professionals at Flawless Med Spa will help you to determine the exact cost for the look you are trying to achieve.
What Factors Determine the Cost of Botox®?
There are two main factors that go into determining the cost of Botox® treatments.
The first is the individual needs of each patient. If patients have several areas of the face that need to be treated, such as the lines between your eyebrows and the wrinkles on your forehead, they will need more units of Botox® to correct these areas. Patients in their twenties may need very little Botox® to achieve their desired look, while patients in their fifties may need much more to soften their lines. And while we don’t normally think about the strength of the muscles in our faces, the thickness and strength of people’s muscles vary, and people with thicker facial muscles may require more Botox® to soften their wrinkles. Because individual needs vary so greatly, the amount of Botox® used on each patient will vary so the treatment plan and cost are unique to each person.
The fee of the specialist administering your injections is the other major factor in the cost of treatment. If the person that is performing your treatments is highly sought after and is considered an advanced injector, their fee may tend to be higher. Likewise, a cosmetic surgeon’s fee would normally be higher than an advanced technician’s fee.
Keep in mind that it is critical that you choose qualified and reputable medical personnel to administer your Botox® Cosmetic treatments. At Flawless Med Spa, our medical staff is highly skilled and extremely familiar with Botox® Cosmetic and has treated numerous satisfied patients. They take the time to talk with each patient to develop a thorough understanding of their problem areas and desired results.
