Botox is among the most popular noninvasive aesthetic procedures in the US as per data collected by the ASPS (American Surgery of Plastic Surgeons). In 2002, FDA approved Botox for treating and reducing frown lines. Botox was again FDA approved in 2013 for reducing crow’s feet. Your treatment provider will discuss all aspects of the Botox procedure during the pre-operative consultation.
It’s vital that you compare overall dollar amount of Botox with other noninvasive treatment options for facial anti-aging. Generally, the cost-effectiveness of Botox outweighs almost all other wrinkle reducing treatments. This has made the procedure highly popular. However, you should still discuss the various advantages and limitations of the treatment with your doctor before coming up with a decision.

Cost of Botox vs. Other Options
Botox injections are usually more cost effective in the long run as compared to other non invasive anti-aging cosmetic procedures and facial treatments. The injectable treatment is provided as an in-office procedure, which can be completed in less than 20 minutes. You don’t have to undergo sedation or anesthesia for it. There is no downtime involved in the procedure as well. You can resume your regular chores and normal activity almost immediately.
In most cases, advanced facial anti-aging procedures are expensive. This is especially true for lasers, RF, ultrasound, and deep chemical peels. Most skin care treatments don’t offer results in a single session. Conversely, Botox injections may offer improved results after just one session.
Botox injections, in the long run, come out to be highly cost effective in comparison with other facial rejuvenation procedures. There are no post-op recovery costs, anesthesia uses or multiple consultations.
Botox Injection Cost May Differ
Botox is a highly individualized treatment. The amount of injectable is customized based on individual aesthetic goals and needs. It’s possible for the cost of Botox injection treatments to differ between two patients getting the therapy at the same treatment provider. Extensive treatment plans, in general, tend to cost more than minimal plans.
You may have to pay more if you want to use Botox for off-label uses, such as for minimizing nasolabial folds or treating wrinkles. The overall treatment would be charged based on the units of Botox used.
Don’t Fall for Low-Priced Options
Botox parties and off-site Botox procedures have become common in recent years. People are given group discounts at parties since less time is required. However, you should not get attracted to these prices since botulinum toxin has potent effects.
The injectable should only be provided by a reputable and qualified treatment provider. As per FDA, Botox injections should be administered only by trained and experienced injectors.
Financing Options and Insurance Coverage
Typically, Botox treatment costs are not covered by healthcare insurance providers. However, several financing options are offered by medical care finance firms. Botox manufacturer, Allergan, Inc. offers free information regarding insurance.
