Botox® Cosmetics is a well-known neurotoxin designed to slow nerve-muscle communication. The procedure is generally a quick, easy, and cost-effective solution for a variety of problems. While the injectable is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, many men and women also use Botox® as a way to minimize the effects of certain medical concerns.
At Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Botox® is typically priced on a per-unit basis. However, the number of units needed to achieve an optimal outcome can vary from patient to patient. The nationwide average price for Botox® can change significantly based on a few key factors. One person may find themselves paying just $10/unit, while another person might get charged $20/unit across the country.
What Goes Into the Cost of Botox®?
The size and severity of your concerns can play a large role in how much you’ll wind up paying. Smaller areas like crow’s feet may only need 20-30 units of Botox®. Meanwhile, larger areas like glabellar lines might require upwards of 50-60 units to achieve an optimal outcome. Less severe lines can also be addressed with fewer units compared to deep-set wrinkles.
Men and women who have already begun their Botox® journey may find themselves paying less for each consecutive treatment. As Botox® goes to work weakening wrinkle-causing muscles, you’ll need less product to get the same results.
Botox® for Medical Conditions
Botox® is FDA-approved for various medical conditions such as excessive sweating. Although the cost may vary, you can expect to pay around $1,000 or so for treating areas such as the underarms. In some instances, Botox® may be covered by insurance. Speak with your provider for more information.
How Often Should I Get Botox®?
Botox® Cosmetics affects each person differently. In general, Botox® can last anywhere from 3-6 months. However, the first treatment session typically doesn’t last as long as secondary treatments. Over time, Botox® treatments can be scheduled further and further apart.
The best way to determine how often you should get Botox® is through an in-person consultation. Dr. Craig will be able to customize an ideal treatment plan for natural-looking results each and every time. At Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, you’ll get exceptional patient-centric care at competitive rates.
