How much is Botox?

While sometimes you may find a "sale" or a "special" on Botox injectables, there is usually more to consider. Frequently, chain franchised med spas will advertise "special deals" for which the fine print reads a minimum number of units must be purchased (typically 50 or 100). When you go for a treatment, you are told how many units will be banked to use on the next treatment. Most of the time, these botox credits will expire and if you have not picked up the next treatment, you lose the money.

The price for botulinum toxin injections is measured by the unit because this amount can vary from client to client depending on their age, anatomy and the results they hope to achieve. It can also vary from one point in time to another point in time due to muscle atrophy with consistent treatments or changes with aging. A client in their 20s may need less than 20 units whereas a male in his late 40s may require up to three times that amount.

The most accurate estimate for cost planning is to get a direct assessment either in-person or virtually. A price per unit is meaningless without knowing how many units you will need to purchase.
