What is the Average Botox Cosmetic Cost in the USA?
With the increasing popularity of Botox cosmetic treatment, most of the women always wonder “what the cost of Botox near me is”. I mostly get this type of question from most of our readers. To help answer this question, let’s see below the details about Botox cost.
The average Botox cosmetic cost across the USA can range from $350 to $500 for each area of treatment that is injected.
Factors that determine the cost of Botox injections:
- Geographical location
- Expertise and qualification of the specialist
- Amount of time
- Effort required by the specialist
- Number of total injections
Botox cosmetic cost breakdown:
Most of the practices charge the flat cost for each Botox treatment while some practices break it down to the units used per treatment. Flat prices are approx. between $300 and $1000 and each unit cost is approx. $10-$15 while it also depends on how much the patient needs and who administers the procedure. The treatment of Botox is needed every 3-4 months.
If a nurse administers Botox in a mall, the average cost per unit is $9-$12 or it can become $200-$300 for each area (with 20-30 units) that can even reach to $200-$600 for a typical treatment.
If a plastic surgeon or dermatologist administers Botox at the medical office or clinic, the average cost per unit is $14-$17 or it can become $600-$1,200 or even more for multiple treatment areas.
Botox cosmetics price discounts:
While choosing the lowest price of Botox among the different price ranges, there are some factors that need to be considered such as
- The quality of service provided by a specific cosmetic surgery practice and,
- The professional qualifications and expertise of the dermatologist/cosmetic surgeon or plastic surgeon.
For example, some skin care centers at malls offer very cheap rates of Botox but you should first check their quality of service. An exceptionally low Botox cost makes the treatment questionable.
Remember, not to compromise on the quality of treatment for cheaper rates because your skin matters a lot.
In recent times, a trend called “Botox cosmetic parties” is becoming popular in which many people gather in a doctor’s house or any other outside location for getting the Botox injections at the lowest price. Although the cost of Botox treatment at such parties is low than administering it as a normal visit to a doctor’s office, this situation is not considered as an ideal. American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and American Academy of Dermatology are not in favor of this situation because they have reservations on the point of the ability of the surgeon to provide a safe environment outside the doctor’s clinic in which sterile instruments are used.
Some plastic surgeons and dermatologists offer discounts if you are a regular customer or if you avail multiple services or if you refer a new customer.
Payment methods for Botox treatment:
Most of the doctors offer different payment methods for their cosmetic treatments such as Botox that include personal cheque, cash, credit card, or through the arrangements that made with the established lending institution. Some doctors or practices offer their own financing plans for those people who can’t afford to make a single payment for the complete cost of Botox injections. Make sure to inquire about the financing plans during your initial consultation for Botox treatment.
Does the Botox treatment covered by medical insurance?
Like other cosmetic treatments, Botox injection is usually not covered by the medical insurance. But, the medical uses of Botox injections are covered by the insurance that includes Botox treatment for excessive sweating, uncontrollable eye twitching, constant pain and others. Although the insurance coverage for cosmetic uses of Botox is less common you should discuss your insurance provider whether you have coverage for your Botox treatment.
