Cost of Botox
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today, as it is known to successfully combat aging and smooth out facial wrinkles. It is also particularly effective in treating a wide-ranging number of symptoms, such as facial muscle spasms, eyelid twitching, neck spasms, misalignment of the eyes, and even excessive underarm sweating.
Botox typically lasts up to six months; therefore, patients who want to maintain youthful results commonly opt to receive follow-up injections as necessary. The average Botox cost can range from about $300 to $400, and can cost as much as $1,000. Additionally, some Botox treatments are available “per unit” for around $11 to $15 each. However, here in Orange County at PowersMDWellness we offer Botox for $8-$9 per unit. This is a good option for patients who desire a small area to be addressed. Whatever the case, a Botox injection treatment and facial filler injections are more cost-efficient for many individuals as compared to an invasive procedure, such as facelift surgery, which can range from $6,000 to $15,000.
The reason that invasive surgeries, such as facelifts, cost so much more can depend on a variety of factors, including the location of the doctor, his/her individual rates, and facility/hospital fees. Botox injections, on the other hand, are widely available and the price of a vial to doctors is also just as widely fixed, making for a much less expensive alternative to cosmetic surgeries.
Also, because Botox injections are widely available, patients have broad shopping options to find a variety of Botox specials and deals. Again, geography plays a role in terms of finding the best Botox cost, with Western states clocking in at the lowest average at around $370 where the average cost at PowersMDWellness is about $240.
As is the case with any medical procedure, it is important to check in with a qualified specialist before seeking treatment.
