What areas are do neurotoxins (Botox & Dysport) treat and associated costs?
The three most common areas are 1) frown lines, 2) forehead (brow) lines, and 3 ) Crow's feet. (pictured below).
Treatments are priced "by area" or by units and range as follows:
2 areas= $525-625
All 3 areas =$675-750
$17 per unit of Botox or $5.25 per unit of Dysport
Prices per area are not "set in stone", some people choose to do all 3 areas for the cost of 2 areas which is frequently done, but we will use the same amount of botox for 2 areas and spread it over 3 areas. In most cases you are paying "per unit", but because many people do not know how many units are needed, it is easier to delineate by treatment areas.
Some people may choose to have a "less frozen look " or " more movement ". This can be accomplished with injecting less units and/or more dilute Botox, which you will pay less for than The listed prices. Think of a “unit”of Botox as a grain of sugar. If you require more sugar for sweeter coffee, this will have an added cost but if you prefer weaker coffee, then less sugar (units) are used and therefore less expensive. Treatment Area prices are “average” requirements for individual treatments. Botox can also be used in other areas such as the masseter muscle, lip lines, bunny lines (bridge of nose), & underarms to limit sweating.
