How Much Does Botox Treatment Cost?

As Botox becomes an increasingly popular way to reclaim some youthfulness or prevent early signs of aging, more people are searching for the answers to this question – how much does a Botox treatment cost you? Available data tells us that the current average treatment cost is $466, but that’s based on a number of factors. Today, let’s discuss the cost of Botox and other neuromodulators like Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport. Let’s also address what influences it and answer your biggest question: are neuromodulators in your budget?

What is Botox Used For?

Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport are derived from botulinum toxin. They’re popular for their cosmetic use in smoothing out wrinkles. They work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for wrinkle formation, resulting in smoother skin. 

Increasingly, Botox and neuromodulators like Xeomin and Jeuveau have become a popular choice for individuals seeking to address signs of aging without undergoing surgery. The treatment is minimally invasive and offers noticeable results, making it a fantastic option for people who want to look as young as they feel.

While these benefits – non-invasive, effective treatment for wrinkles and signs of aging – are incredible, they can come at a cost. 

What is the Average Cost of Botox?

The average cost of Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport treatments varies depending on several factors, including the geographic location of the clinic, the expertise of the injector, and the number of units needed for the desired results. On average, a single unit of a neuromodulator can cost between $10 to $20.

For a treatment area such as the glabellar lines(what we call the forehead lines), which may require 20 to 30 units of product, the cost can range from $200 to $600 per session. It’s important to note that most practitioners charge for Jeuveau or Dysport by the unit so that the total cost will depend on the number of units needed for the treatment. 

People undergoing Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, or Dysport for the first time should consider that the overall cost can add up over time, as the effects are temporary and require regular maintenance injections to sustain the same results. 

So, yes – you should add in the price of maintenance treatments when considering your neuromodulator budget. 

Factors that Affect My Botox Cost

Treatment Area

The specific area being treated with Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, or Dysport can impact the overall cost of the procedure. For example, treating the entire forehead will require different amounts of neuromodulator units than treating crow’s feet or lip lines.

Number of Units

As we’ve discussed, the number of neuromodulator units is a significant factor influencing the total cost since providers usually charge per unit. What determines how many units are used besides treatment area, though? In addition to size of the treatment area, the quantity of units required is determined by the severity of wrinkles, and the individual’s muscle strength. The latter can be influenced by gender, with men often having thicker muscles that may take more product for the same efficacy.


The geographic location of the clinic or practitioner can significantly influence the cost of neuromodulator treatments. Major metropolitan areas with a higher cost of living may have higher prices for Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport procedures than rural areas. This isn’t always the case, but keep in mind that location can influence price.  

Does Insurance Cover Botox?

In most cases, neuromodulator injections for cosmetic purposes are not covered by health insurance. Discuss Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport treatments with your insurance provider to see what your options are. 

Should I Choose the Cheapest Botox Option?

While cost is a significant factor in decision-making, opting for the cheapest neuromodulator option may not always guarantee desirable outcomes. It’s essential to prioritize the expertise and qualifications of your aesthetic provider to ensure safe and effective treatment.

Choosing a reputable injector with experience in administering a wide variety of neuromodulators can contribute to a successful outcome and minimize the risk of complications. Consider researching potential providers, reading reviews from former clients, and scheduling consultations to get an idea of what the practice and providers are like and if you feel comfortable with them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there side effects to Botox treatment?

Many people experience some bruising and redness from neuromodulator injections. This is common and will go away within a few days.

How often do I need maintenance treatments?

Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport injections do require maintenance about every six months. This timeline can be tailored to your specific needs. Some people may find their treatment lasts a little longer for them, while others may find the effects fade a little more quickly.

Can I complement Botox with other aesthetic treatments?

Yes! Many people choose to use facial rejuvenation treatments like Opus Plasma or dermal fillers to complement their treatment.
