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.
