There is no set cost of Botox 

Cost of Botox is an important fact Charlotte, NC patients want to know before having the injections done. However, the cost of Botox can vary and is based on a number of different factors. Since results are not permanent, patients should plan to have repeat injections they need to plan to pay for as well. 

Botox is a popular procedure to reduce wrinkles on the face 

When people hear the word Botox, they usually associate it with removing wrinkles. Botox can eliminate what is called dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by the use of facial muscles. This means Botox works best on removing crows feet around the eyes, frown and laugh lines around the mouth, and wrinkles in the forehead. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles which is why people who have had too much injected often have a frozen appearance. However, when done correctly by an experienced doctor, Botox can help patients look younger and feel better about their appearance. 

Many factors go into determining the cost of Botox 

The cost of Botox varies, and a variety of factors go into determining how much it will be. One significant factor is the location of the surgeon you are using. Certain types of injections may only be available in certain areas, which can impact the cost.  

The amount of Botox that will be needed and the area it is being used on also plays a part in determining the price. Botox is often sold a per unit price, so if a lot will be used the price will probably more. Patients who have decided to get Botox injections should be careful when looking at discounted products or products that seem too cheap. These scams can leave patients with undesirable results.  

Repeat injections will be needed to maintain results 

Botox does not offer permanent results, so to maintain the results patients will need additional injections in the future. This should be considered when planning how much you’ll have to spend. Most Botox lasts three to six months but patients may begin to see results last longer after multiple treatments.  

Insurance generally does not help cover cost 

Most insurance companies will not help cover the cost of Botox. This means patients will need to foot the bill themselves for the procedure and anything they may need following the procedure. However, it is always a good idea to check with your insurance company to confirm if they will help pay the cost or not.
