One of the most popular anti-aging Treatments on the market today is Botox. It is frequently chosen as an alternative to facelift surgery. Making the decision to get the injections requires an understanding of how the costs are calculated and how many treatments will be needed overall. Some doctors charge different prices based on the location of the injections and unit costs. Here is a quick explanation of the costs of use over time.
Pinpointing an exact price for Botox is difficult as the costs will vary by states and geographical location. A general estimate of between $200 and $400 per treatment is to be expected in most areas. The price could be a bit higher if there is competition in the area. For example, one lady was charged $350 for her treatments based on the average price of the services in her area. She felt very confident that she had chosen a qualified doctor and the price was acceptable.
If the price is based on units, the average cost of a unit is $9-$12, or $200-$300 per area using multiple units. This cost is multiplied for every area being treated. For example, you may need 20 units just to do your forehead and 5-6 units for those pesky crows feet. The frequency of treatments is usually every 3 months.
That does not mean that this is the average price for all Botox treatments. This was the average cost in that area. The price in your area may be less for the same number of injections. Some research will be needed to determine whether the cost is something our budget can handle.
Price May Change over Time
Another consideration is that the prices may change off and on. Just like anything else, the costs of Botox and other dermal fillers will fluctuate and may rise or fall depending on the season and other factors. Your cost may change if you require fewer treatments or the frequency of your treatments may change. You may only require a couple of treatments to smooth out those beginning wrinkles and fine lines.
Regular injections of Botox help those fine lines go away and prevent the formation of new ones. It helps too if you avoid facial expressions such as frowning that accentuate the lines around your mouth and the furrow between your brows.
When injections are done regularly, the effect is long-lasting and prevents wrinkles in the area being treated. Botox restricts the movement of muscles in the treatment area which helps you avoid creating new lines and wrinkles such as the ones you’re trying to eliminate.
Once you have begun Botox treatments remembering to relax your facial muscles and keep from frowning will become a secondary habit. It may even help you to need fewer treatments to maintain your skin’s youthful new look.
