The manufacturer of Botox, Allergan provides Botox in 100 unit vials. Botox is a freeze-dried protein and must be diluted with saline so that it can be injected. This is where you may have heard of the ‘dilution’ of Botox. Botox has to be diluted for injection. Typically, 2 CCs of saline is used which produces 50 units of Botox per ml. The diluted Botox is then placed in syringes so it can be injected. The Botox Cost from Allergan is the same for all practices.
The Botox Price is usually associated with the number of units injected. There are well know amounts of Botox typically required for specific areas. The frown lines require 20-30 units, the forehead 10-20 units (Botox Cost Forehead), and the crow’s-feet (around eyes) 10-15 units per side. (How much Botox do I need?) As you can see there is a range of Botox needed, as some patients need more, and some less Botox for the desired effect. So the number of units injected should determine the Botox Injections Cost. Usually, the price per unit is advertised. In that way you at least know how many units of Botox you are getting. There are some practices that charge by area. This practice should probably be avoided since you do not know how much Botox you are receiving or the price per unit. For example: if you pay $200 for an ares, are you getting 20 units of Botox at $10/unit or 10 units of Botox at $20/unit?
So the ideal way to shop for your Botox is by the unit. Compare the price per unit and try to inquire about the expected number of units injected. It is also advisable to look for an Allergan certified practice(check the Botox Cosmetic website). This way you know that they use genuine Botox and have relatively high volume. Of course, there is more to shopping for a Botox injector than just price. It is critical to look for experienced and well-trained injectors who understand facial aging as well as facial muscle anatomy. The aging face has many components and just performing Botox without addressing other issues can waste the Botox or even make things worse. Trying to relax muscles when the overall skin is in poor condition, doesn’t make sense! Beleza Medspa providers are trained to assess the whole face and possess the tools to address all issues. They can restore volume with Juvederm, resurface the skin with lasers, photofacials, microneedling, hydrafacials and Skinmedica and refer for cosmetic surgery procedures. Beleza providers are skilled at looking at the whole picture and establishing long-term relationships with their patients. We are among the Best Botox Austin practices.
