The Best Botox® Procedure: What You Need to Know

botox procedure

Every day I see ads in newspapers, magazines, and circulars offering Botox® at insanely low prices. It leaves me wondering how patients really know that they’re getting good Botox® treatment. For example, many patients may not know that it is able to be reconstituted with sterile water, and in many clinics, it often is. If you add more water and you may stretch a bottle farther, but you also may see less of a result. Because of this common practice, older Botox® may not work as well as a freshly opened bottle. So, paying for Botox® by the site can mean a better or worse result, depending on how generous or frugal your doctor is with the way they use their Botox®.

Fresh and Effective Botox®

In my own practice, we reconstitute the Botox® we use, all according to the manufacture’s guidelines. It is a concentrated solution that allows us to put smaller but stronger amounts in the areas of concern. This increases its effectiveness by ensuring it is not overly diluted and impotent, and it minimizes its migration to areas we don’t want it to affect. Because we are good at what we do, we have a steady stream of Botox® patients, which allows us to use our supply of Botox® quickly. This meaning fresher and more effective Botox® for every procedure and better natural-looking results every time.

How Much Does it Cost?

We also charge for Botox® by the unit. What does that mean you might ask? Well, each Botox® bottle contains one hundred units of botulinum toxin. Common areas patients want to be treated at including the area between the eyebrows (glabella), crow’s feet, and forehead. While the average full area will cost about $350, charging by the unit means our patients can buy more or less if they want and can choose a specific amount that is tailored to their needs and procedural goals. If just a small area needs refreshing, we charge only for the units necessary and not the whole site. I think this is a more common-sense approach that can better ensure a client’s satisfaction by giving them what they need at a price they can afford. 

Botox® is not an exact science, so we take extra precautions. We ask each of our patients to return in 10 days to evaluate the results of their treatment. By recording how satisfied they are and how they reacted to their last treatment, future treatment plans can be made for fine-tuning of what was originally done or what they would like done next.
