How Much Does Botox Cost?Posted On: April 1, 2014 Author: Las Vegas Orthodontics
Are Botox treatments worth their cost? Many people believe that they are, but how much you are willing to spend is a personal decision. Regardless of the high Botox price, it is one of the most popular treatments for wrinkles.
This information originally appeared on skinacea.com, where the author discussed the risks and benefits of Botox treatments, along with factors affecting the Botox price.
EXACTLY HOW MUCH DOES BOTOX COST
Like most industries, there is a wide range when it comes to Botox price. There are some doctors that will charge based on price per unit, and others that will charge based on the area being treated, which can make the difference seem bigger than it is.
So, how much does Botox cost per treatment? The typical price per treatment will range between $200 and $400. The overall cost varies, based on your location and the doctor you choose. As with everything else, you tend to get what you pay for—higher-priced doctors tend to be the ones with the most experience and expertise.
If your main concern is the Botox price, don’t hesitate to ask doctors questions like “how much does Botox cost per unit in your office?” If they are charging you per unit for your Botox treatment, you should also ask how many units will be required for the job at hand.
HOW LONG DO BOTOX TREATMENTS LAST?
The fact that Botox treatments aren’t permanent is both the good news and the bad news. The cost of Botox will certainly add up over time if you want to keep up your wrinkle-free look, but if something happens to go wrong, your skin will return to normal on its own.
There are a lot of variables to how long an individual treatment will last. Some things that could affect the duration include:
* If you get the wrong type of wrinkles treated (static)
* The dosage used
* Whether or not you have had Botox previously
* The skill of the doctor
* The muscles where the injections were made
* The quality of the Botox
Whatever the case, Botox treatments tend to last about 3 months, give or take a few weeks. If your treatment lasts significantly less than this, speak to the doctor that performed your treatment because any good doctor would be willing to work with you to determine what went wrong.
