The cost of Botox can vary greatly depending on the type of treatment you need, the area of the body you’d like Botox treatment for, and the amount of Botox you want. In this article, we’re going to look at what Botox is, the benefits of Botox, and what you should expect from a practitioner. All of which will allow you to make an informed decision about your Botox and its cost.
Botulinum toxin type A, more commonly known as Botox or Azzalure, is a facial injection which relaxes the facial muscles, allowing the smoothing out of wrinkles or crease lines to create a more youthful look. This can include all areas of the face such as the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet) and the glabella (frown lines), and also bunny lines at the bridge of your nose. Botox procedures have grown increasingly popular over the last 10 years to reduce facial lines and wrinkles with the most common procedure being on the forehead.
The cost of Botox depends entirely on your individual circumstance. The Botox cost outlined on our website represents a guide. The cost usually depends on the amount of areas you want treated, the main three areas being, forehead, frown and eyes. Botox can also be used in the masseter muscle to stop grinding and the clenching of the jaw/teeth, as well as chin treatment and the platysmal bans in the neck area, but we suggest a consultation where a full quote will be given for the advanced Botox treatment.
Generally, cosmetic Botox injections have a more short term impact, and typically last between 3 to 4 months before you need to be re-treated. However, the more Botox procedures you have, the more your face muscles react and ‘heal’ which results in less wrinkles over time. Botox cost is also relatively low which means it is a cost effective option to achieve a more youthful look.
Botox injections primarily help to reduce facial movement allowing the lines in the face time to ‘heal’. Due to a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, this can help an individual to feel more confident day to day. Botox injections are also popular and beneficial mainly because of their quick and noticeable responses. The results of Botox injections can take 5-7 days to be seen and over the following months results can become even more apparent.
When looking for a Botox practitioner, it is important to look for a medical professional with the correct qualifications. This includes them being on a register to show they meet set standards in training, skill, and insurance. This ensures that the cost of Botox is fully backed up by medical experience and knowledge. Avoid practitioners who have no training or have only completed a short training course.
