Botox® is quite affordable. The cost is comparable to other appearance related investments such as facials, hair colouring and wrinkle creams. It is important to beware of “bargain Botox®” offers. If the price seems much cheaper it is likely that Botox® is not being used, or the Botox® dose is too low or the product has been diluted to give a weaker effect that may not last as long.
The cost depends on the amount administered and this can vary according to gender, strength of facial muscles treated, the degree of wrinkling and the effect of previous treatments. Our doctors will be able to advise you of the exact cost only at the time of the consultation, as each person requirements are different. As a guide, females will require about 12 to 30 units for the treatment of crow’s feet, and 20 to 30 units for frown lines, and from 5 to 20 units for the treatment of forehead lines. Males usually require larger doses than females – sometimes up to double the amount. The average price to have frown lines treated with 20u of Botox® is $400 per session.
