How much does Botox Cosmetic Cost?Posted on December 1, 2021
Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging non-surgical treatments in the world today. Ever since Botox treatment was approved by the FDA in 2002 for cosmetic reduction of wrinkles and lines, it has continued to be the treatment of choice for millions.
Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by Dr. Thomas Fiala, is a leading provider of Botox injectable treatment for patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities. During the initial consultation, the Botox experts at the med spa will discuss various aspects of the treatment, including its estimated costs.
Cost-effectiveness of Botox
One of the challenges with various aesthetic surgery as well as non-surgical treatments is that the cost may prove to be a deterrent for some of the patients. In such treatments, the cost is usually not covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. If the patient is reluctant to opt for more expensive aesthetic procedures for the face, they may consider Botox as a proven and highly cost-effective alternative.
Certain Expenses Avoided
Unlike a surgery, Botox treatment does not involve expenses for general anesthesia, costs of surgical facility, fee charged by the plastic surgeon, and other related expenses. Even when compared to other advanced non-surgical anti-aging treatments that involve laser, ultrasound, thermal, or cooling technologies, Botox proves to be more affordable than almost all such treatments.
Botox treatment usually will not involve multiple treatment sessions or several consultations before or after the procedure. The patient does not even need to take time off from work because the Botox treatment does not involve any downtime. It can easily be performed as weekend procedure on an outpatient basis.
Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa recommends Botox treatment to suitable candidates who are looking for a simpler or more cost-effective anti-aging treatment alternative for the face. Patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, or other areas can visit the med spa for Botox treatment.
Average Cost of Treatment
The treatment of Botox injections may be calculated on per unit or per vial basis, depending on the Botox provider. The average cost of treatment in terms of units will range from $12 to $20 per unit. This can translate to about $15 to $25 on per vial basis. The overall cost of treatment will depend on the extent of surface area to be treated.
If the patient needs Botox treatment to reduce lines between the brows, the overall cost of treatment may come to around $600 to $1,000. The total number of units or vials needed by a patient will be determined by the treatment provider to match with the individual goals of the patient. Some treatment providers may charge a fixed cost for a specific area of the face to be treated.
According to the American Society of Aesthetics Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the cost of Botox treatment on an average basis in the US is $328. However, this is only an indicative figure. The actual cost will vary from one med spa to another, depending on several factors. The cost may sometimes be reduced if the medical spa is offering a special rebate or a package discount.
