How Much Does Botox® Cost?

Many of our deepest lines and wrinkles come from our facial expressions. Raising eyebrows, smiling, and frowning can all create deep lines over the years. These can appear around the eyes, often called crow’s feet, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. Botox® can soften or erase these expression lines in a quick treatment with no downtime.

How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® is an FDA-approved product made from botulinum toxin A. This toxin interferes with the signals between muscle cells and nerve cells. This temporary effect quiets the nerve cell and stops it from telling the muscle to contract. 

With no muscle contractions pulling on the skin, the lines and wrinkles in the treated area become smoother and start to relax. Within a few days of treatment, you will see the neurotoxin begin to work, and wrinkles start to soften. 

Because the effects of Botox® only last for a certain amount of time, it does no harm to the muscles or the nerves, and when the treatment wears off, normal muscle function will come back. Many people have Botox® on a regular basis to make sure their expression lines don’t make a comeback. 

What are the Benefits of Botox®?

As a cosmetic treatment, Botox® offers several significant benefits. 

  • Treatment takes less than twenty minutes in many cases
  • Results become visible within days
  • Smoothing of expression lines and wrinkles
  • Well-established safety record
  • The most well-known and established name in neurotoxin treatments


Other methods of reducing lines and wrinkles can involve surgical procedures or skin resurfacing treatments, both of which have a longer recovery than Botox®. Laser treatments often require multiple sessions to achieve results, while Botox® requires only one round of injections per treatment.

How Much Does Botox® Cost?

According to Cosmopolitan, the cost of Botox® varies, with more experienced and certified providers charging more and prices varying by location. You can expect to pay anywhere between $10 and $25 per unit, and each injection uses three to five units. The number of injections depends on the size of the area being treated and how intensive you want your results to look. 

What Results Will I See With Botox®?

Botox® results develop within a few days after treatment, and they will continue to improve as the Botox® continues to bind to nerve cells. Results usually last three to four months, and many people have maintenance treatments to keep their smooth, wrinkle-free results. 

Is There Any Downtime?

You should not require any downtime after Botox®. You may notice some minor bruising, swelling, or soreness in the injection site for 24 hours after treatment, but many people see no effects. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?

Most people can receive Botox®. With numerous medical uses, this product’s safety has been well-established. People should not have Botox® while pregnant or breastfeeding, or if they have ever had a bad reaction to any botulinum toxin treatment.
