Understanding BOTOX® Cosmetic Cost
Many wrinkles, like crow’s feet and forehead lines, are caused by involuntary muscle contractions. BOTOX® Cosmetic prevents facial muscles from contracting, relaxing and diminishing wrinkles and even deep, stubborn lines. Receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic injections takes only a few minutes, and the effects can last up to six months. Doctors and plastic surgeons use this treatment on thousands of patients every year. Many people interested in using BOTOX® Cosmetic to look younger are curious about the cost of this non-surgical treatment.

Determining Whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is Right for You
BOTOX® Cosmetic is used primarily as an aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe wrinkles and lines that result from aging. It is often used to smooth crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic has earned approval from the Food and Drug Administration, and is often an excellent alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgery, such as a neck lift or facelift. BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for wrinkles caused by muscle tension. For wrinkles caused by sagging skin, dermal fillers, also offered at our offices, could be a better solution for you.
If you are between 18 and 65 years old with unwanted wrinkles or lines, you are likely a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Greenberg will be able to assess your skin and candidacy for BOTOX® Cosmetic during a consultation at our practice.
Determining Your Treatment Cost
Each BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is customized to your specific needs and concerns, so each patient’s plan carries a different cost. Total cost primarily depends on how many treatment areas you wish to soften and where they are located on your face. This will determine how many units of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected, since deeper lines generally require more of the injectable. Various patients’ skin may also respond differently to treatment, so two injections for one patient may be equivalent to several for another.
Choosing a Provider
An important factor to consider is Dr. Greenberg’s high level of expertise using this product. He has completed special training in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic and is a member of the BOTOX® Cosmetic Physicians Network. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a medical treatment, and it is important to work with an experienced professional to avoid costly complications, undesirable results, and potential discomfort.
