What’s behind the cost of Botox and injectable fillers?

If you’re considering Botox or other injectable fillers, the cost of these treatments is definitely on your mind. The cost of these treatments vary. 

The price of Botox includes much more than just the injections themselves. You are paying for an experienced practitioner to administer the treatment in a way that is going to enhance your beauty, smooth out wrinkles, and that is completely safe. Dr. Carpenter and our team at Allegany Plastic Surgery work with you to find the right treatments that will enhance your look in a safe, effective matter. 

What Factors Into The Cost?

Other than the cost of going to an experienced professional, it’s important to understand that many units of fillers or Botox are used in a single session. On average 30-40 units of Botox are used when smoothing out wrinkles in the eye and forehead region. The product used is the largest portion of the cost that you pay. If prices are unbelievingly low, then you may not be receiving enough of the product to see a noticeable improvement.

Choosing a Specialist

Let’s talk about some other things to keep in mind when choosing a Botox or injection filler specialist. 

Firstly, check their reviews across multiple sources. If their reviews are very high in one place but low across all of the others, then you may want to be cautious. Take the time to read the comments left by other people who have received the same procedure. Comments left by other patients can help to direct your line of questioning when you have your consultation.

Secondly, when you choose to have your first consultation, make sure that you ask enough questions so that you understand exactly what they are going to do and approximately how many units of a product they will use. Research the base cost of the filler they will use. For example, Botox is around $10-15 per unit. If they are going to use between 30-40 units, then the total base cost of the product is $300-600 for one session, not including labor and care. If their total price is on the low end, then you may consider if the treatment is going to be effective. 

An experienced professional will walk through each aspect of the cost with you so you completely understand what you are spending your money on.

How long does Botox last?

Thanks to Botox, people can treat their wrinkles without any surgery. Botox is an injectable toxin. It works by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing the formation of new ones. Our team at Allegany Plastic Surgery can answer any questions you may have about Botox. One of the most common questions people have about Botox is how long it lasts. Before answering that question, we must first understand how it works.

How Does Botox Work?

When Botox is injected, it blocks the brain’s signals from reaching the muscles, ultimately preventing the muscles from contracting. When facial muscles aren’t contracted, wrinkles and fine lines are less noticeable. There’s also less stress on the skin, which can help prevent the formation of new wrinkles.

Botox Procedure

Patients about to receive Botox will have their faces cleansed and sterilized before their first injection. When the patient is ready, the provider will inject Botox into the targeted treatment areas. Small bumps may appear immediately at the injection sites, but they should fade within a few minutes.

Botox Results

Botox takes a few days to affect the muscles, so the results aren’t immediate. Some people will see mild bruising for the first 24-48 hours after receiving Botox. The first changes can be seen 3-5 days after receiving treatment. Full results are expected to appear after two weeks. The results can vary from person to person, so some people may see changes sooner or later than what’s considered typical.

How Long Does It Last?

Under normal circumstances, Botox is expected to last for 3-4 months. Once the effects wear off, the patient can opt to get another treatment. Once again, actual results can vary between each patient depending on many factors. Botox is, unfortunately, a temporary solution for fine lines and wrinkles. Luckily, it’s safe, FDA-approved, and relatively affordable, so most people can receive multiple treatments of Botox without any trouble.

Is Botox Right for You?

The ideal candidate for Botox is in good general health, has fine lines and mild-to-moderate wrinkles, and maintains realistic expectations. Most providers of Botox are also educated on any alternatives for patients who aren’t ideal candidates. The best way to figure out if you’re an ideal candidate is to consult an expert.

If you’re unsatisfied with the lines in your face, you should know that you don’t have to live with them anymore. The friendly experts at Allegany Plastic Surgery can help you banish them for good. Contact us at Allegany Plastic Surgery to begin your Botox journey.
